I like those figureheads, are they metal?
I’m liking those horses.02/04/2023 at 22:28 in reply to: Fight:Wepon Future Year! (6mm scale Sci Fi Skirmish) #184665
You freehanded those insignias?
These smaller games are fun.
Nice to see you back.
The none miniatures rules in the last 5Parsecs expansion had been giving me ideas.
I’m facinated by the “narrative diorama skirmish game” tag. Sounds very much like my kind of thing. The alway “always wound” is also interesting, will be interested in seeing how it plays.
Thanks for replaying the battle. The second time round sounds much more even. Along with Tony S’s game it sounds llike results could swing pretty wildly based on dice results? I see possiblities for humorously narrative games.
Will you be replaying this again? The initiaves through half the game pretty much gave RN all the initiative. I’m curious if a second play mgiht give a more even result.
Thanks for the link, you’re hot helping my wallet at all.
How do I tell what minis come with each issue?
Titanic, the ship? Don’t get me started on plastic model kits. I have a whole different rant on those.
Even spread out, that’s more than I spend on wargames in 2-3 years.
That’s pretty good business for GW.
I’m kinda bummed I didn’t see the 40K version though, might have gotten a model or two.
@ian and Andrew
Sounds like this is some king of army box split up into multiple issues?
I didn’t notice paint in the AOS issues, but interesting and sounds like one of those Airfix beginner boxes.
Don’t know. I only saw the Age of Sigmar in the title with the sprues with it and pretty much noted the price and moved on.
It was moounted on a double width carboard kind of thing. The magazine on the left and a clear plastic box with sprues on the right.
I was also tempted to get it just to have something different to paint. Pretty cheap for GW price, but being AoS I didn’t know what the minis were and really had no interested than to note its existence.
I had no idea there’s a 40k version. Let me guess, the minis were Space Marines?
Yeah, ‘iconic’ is probably the better word to use there. My excuse is I’m weird!
The idea behind the wuestion was what was the most commonly seen British tank in all theater. Like in the original post I’m looking for something to represent each nation.
This is very interesting.
I’m going to have to keep my eyes out for this.
<p style=”font-size: 16px !important; line-height: 20px !important;”>The MH came in 2 versions, with R or L handed turrets…
<p style=”font-size: 16px !important;”>
I didn’t know the lef and right turret thing. I saw something like a CTML? With a 37mm center turret?
I can see doing a little game were every tank is a variant of the universal carrier or Mk VI.
Maverick splash damage is pretty high if the trucks got destroyed as well.
CBUs were anti-climatic, maybe something to do with the settings you were playing with earlier?
You forgot to do the obligatory flare popping when you pulled away 😀
You’re right, its based on the Mk VI.
No idea about the Pz III conversion, I’m a WWII tank noob. From the stress on the front suspension though those guns must be real heavy.
On the other hand I found a tankette for the US, Marmon-Herrington CTLS.
I googled “German Bren Carrier”
This is officially my favorite tank of WWII.
Damn it! You all are making me stray form my objective.
First the Vickers Mk VI, Luch and now Bren carrier.
I really want to go for WWII fought in tanketts now. Problem getting equivalents for US and German.
I’m 60/40 between Cromwell vs Churchill. Originally I was thinking a cruiser tank for Brits but cfound out they’re not very uniform in looks. Churchill is quite a bit bigger than the others.
I went with the Cromwell for now. Churchill made sense since it was available almsot from start to end, but man is it ugly.
I would have gone with a generic cruiser tank but Crusader’s turret is so distinctive.
Wouldn’t be using Shermans for British, I want each nation to be unique. I might play a free for all and having Brits vs Yanks both with Shermans might be weird.
I like that idea, especially because I like light tanks the most.
If I went with Vickers Mk VIc it’ll be going against T60/70, M3/M5
PzII or Pz 38(t), but there aren’t any German late war light tank?
Haha, looks like its overwhelming vote for Churchill.
Agree the table loks good. I like the winding roads.
I was thinking the movie “A Bridge Too Far” where the tank column kept getting shot at and stopping.
With the burning halftrack already there from the start I keep thinking the armored column too heavier hit than it did. That brave little R35 deserves a medal.
The start and stop of the vehicle column gave a Market Garden feel.
Looking forward to seeing more ships. I’m hoping you’ll eventually go through all the 1/700 ships available, Hunts and smaller escorts too.
It was going so well for the French. The XO column got whittled down pretty well, if not for those bazookas. You continue to have very bad luck with tanks.
Turns out M1 Bazookas were sent to Tunisia, but no instructions on how to use them.
The constant theme in your battle report seems to be Army bashing 😀
Have you thought about putting a Marine company in there? Maybe to support the initial landing and only to get dragged into the campaign.
So its broken fllight model?
Don’t know why, but it feels good to findout even DCS has broken flight models. Really brings down the myth of it being the most accurate flight sim.
I’ve been using this technique to make putty hold sharper edges, can’t see how it’ll add any significant strength to pewter minis though. I used a toothpick to spread it around more evenly but super glue is brittle so it’ll most likely flake off when spears and blades bend.
Is it the drilling hands or the piano wires that was unsuccessful?
Xyston minis has spears that are down right lethal if you haven’t already tried them.11/01/2023 at 16:20 in reply to: Scratch-built Ships for Naval Aviation Combat games. #182102
These are great!
I love how much details you put on them. Those secondary guns are very inventive.
What are the hulls made out of?
How did you do the cuts on the side of the carrier?
I agree with Tony S, these look fun to build.
I rarely play game as written so my memory is hazy, and I haven’t played the latest 3E version of 5Leagues.
For me Dungeon scum feels more RPG while 5Leagues is more narative wargame. They’re not compatible unless you’re like me and use 5Leagues campaign systems for everything.
I think you can play either in dungeons or open. They both do very similar things but feel different. As above Dungeon Scum feels more like an RPG to me, while 5Leagues is more like an open world Mordhiem. 5Leagues also gives more room for character stats progression while Dungeon Scum is very abstracted.
Couldn’t decide which side to cheer for. I usually avoid siding with the Allies but this time they’re fighting the French. Turns out the French are Germans in disguise 😀
Agree about the foliage. Very nicely done.
Thanks for the link.
Similar to you I’ve been jumping from one project to another. This whole year I might have playedd two games as a test. Once it gets warmer I’m planning to do some painting.
I like the camo on the germans and US woodland, I think you have more surface area to paint on?
You didn’t play a game of Blood Red Sky?
Here’s hoping next time you switch scale you’ll go for 3mm. You wouldn’t care about diffrent types of trucks anymore and do the full kampfgruppen action.
I recently found out you dabbled in Bitzkrieg/Cold war Comander years ago and used it solo? I couldn’t find the changes you made to make it solo though.
Thanks for the story. I’m also intrugued by the guerrilas. The island is huge and a single battalion must feel mightly lonely.
I don’t quite understand one thing about the Moose patrol though, is it just S. Korean troops or Americans as well that went AWOL?
Those cardboards don’t warp?
Interesting. I’m curious if this (Soviet doctrine) was developed from their experience in WWII and if they used something like this during WWII?
I’m totally guessing here but I could see them doing this to confuse their target. Three puffs of smoke at the same time could be for the pucker factor and buy time before return fire.
If they did develope it during WWII where they out number the Germans, it might be to stop the entire company shooting the closest German tank.
So what kind of miniature games are you into?05/12/2022 at 22:46 in reply to: A Hurricane for a Dornier and bomber crew, a fair trade #180809
Looked like you did a victory roll there as you overshot it.
Wht didn’t you drop landing gear?
Thanks for the review.
Homeworld RPG does have 100 pages of back ground, I guess I’ll get a Christmas present for myself.
50ft is too high?
15rds per gun is not a lot of ammo. You look like you’re really good with the gun.
