I just pretend I am an over worked project manager with many projects, some of which are not progressing. 🙂
I must admit that I was very tempted with the Epic Napoleonic armies and really liked the concept. But when I sat down and did a comparison with the Pendraken range Pendraken has more options and flexibility for the game table size I have.
It is a great concept and I think that it will generate a lot of interest.
I agree with Phil Dutre – my taste in rules has changed over time.
I find that I just like rules to be simple and easy to remember. When I was young I would quite happily go into all sorts of detail but now not so much. 🙂
But just to be contrary, I would also happily play the WRG rules of my youth if I still had any copies.
I have both the PSC 10mm Soviets and Pendraken Falklands British. I think they go fine together, although the detail on the Pendraken figures is much better than on the PSC ones. The PSC plastic only has quite soft detail.
Soviets on left 🙂 – ignore my poor painting skills for the British
comparison of the two MANPAD figures
And if you meant the vehicles – I don’t have any British tanks
Hopefully the above comes out alright.
Very hard to use if you are playing solo.
As a way of comparing aircraft the one plane that flew in all the major theatres was the Hurricane, so if the Hurricane is a 2 then you can compare all fighters that fought the Hurricane directly or flew at the same time as the Hurricane and then use this as a starting point for subsequent aircraft.
Of course how “thick” are the bands? Is it meant to be a bell curve or just linear?
Thank you. I had not heard of The Eylau Sequence. It looks very interesting.
I agree that trying to create a “realistic” wargame in space is very difficult. To get around the logistical nightmares of moving and supplying large ships full of humans I am thinking of a war between different von Neumann fleets – so machines vs machines.
One scenario is an alien probe being detected coming into the solar system and heading for the asteroid belt where it starts to build a base.
Earth then responds by building and sending out its own fleet to attack the base.
Alternative scenarios are two alien probes from different builder civilisations entering the same solar system and building bases with a race to build up their defences and/or attack forces or competing corporations mining in the asteroid belt.
I can still have ships, fortresses, marines, etc. they will just all be machines.
I can even have capital ships, cruisers and destroyers – just that a dreadnaught class ship may only be 1 or 2 metres long. 🙂 and robot marines may only be 6-10mm high.
This is very very clever. Very impressive.05/11/2020 at 07:40 in reply to: Wargaming budget, what’s yours and how do you set them? #146372
Like most others I dont have a fixed budget but having the kids grown up gives me a lot more money.
But time is the biggest constraint. I try to paint everything I buy but have to admit I am a few purchases behind.
Certainly has the same problem with steps.15/10/2020 at 03:44 in reply to: Would East Germans Work As Stand-Ins For “Obsoletes” In Soldier (1998)? #145479
Soldier is a classic cult film. So bad it is great.
Bought the DVD for $5. The kids hate it so it is fun to annoy them with it.
I don’t know how you could game it but it is worth watching just to get terrain ideas for the backgrounds.
A very clever scenario and fantastic AAR.
The terrain is great as well.
A couple of ideas to borrow here.
