    If you enjoy it, then that’s all that matters. Tried it but not for me I’m afraid.

    Ooops, thanks for spotting my mistake Shelldrake, which I’ve now amended.

    I’ve bought some this year for the first time and they did have some areas that needed quite a bit of clean up. Mostly due to the nature of being able getting them out of the mould, but some definitely down to tool wear. I received some Empress Miniatures last week and they require minimal work in comparison and are equally beautiful sculpts.

    Didn’t have chance to say ‘Hello’, but the game looked lovely, with Jones’ van standing out, but I loved the rusty old tractor!

    Spent just under two hours there, having a gentle wander around and catching up with friends etc. Didn’t really get a good look at the demo games due to the nature of the layout, but they looked good this year. Treated myself to a steamtank/armoured car for my IHMN Brick Lane Commune Company from Ironclad Miniatures. Seeing their stuff in the flesh makes a big difference as they have a wonderful range of figures, especially for Victorian Sci-Fi. Could have bought more stuff but had my sensible hat on as I’m trying to dent my lead mountain before Xmas!

    Thanks for the pics and write up Andy. I loved the look of the large WWI game with Pendraken figures.

    Will see you there Michael as it’s a good place to catch up with friends, see lots of toy soldiers etc and be tempted by far too many things!

    I really like the battered looking one with missing schurzen plates.

    in reply to: Dealing With Changing Space For Gaming #13071

    I’ve played many good BKCII games on a 4’x4′ board, with most units on 50mm x 25mm bases. I simply reduce the number of units fielded, or vary their arrival so that it doesn’t get too crowded, plus come up with a scenario to suit the smaller table.

    For a table of around 3’x3′, In Her Majesty’s Name, KR-16, The ‘Songs of’ series and Dux Bellorum all work very well, as they are designed for this size. I’ve just invested in ‘No End In Sight’ which again is designed for the smaller table. It seems popular at present to go down this route as many of us have limited space. However most of these games can be easily scaled up should space allow. Hope this helps?

    Just ordered my copy that is now downloading as I speak. My good friend and regular gaming chum is mid-solo game and has given it a big thumbs up. The only problem is it’s another period to collect minis for etc. Oh the hard life of the wargamer. Actually I could use my 6mm AngelBarracks minis to get gaming straight away!!!

    Hmmm, these look interesting for my planned Gruntz forces. Will hold off ordering until they are released.

    Craig, my regular gaming chum and I were talking about this on Saturday in regards to forces for Gruntz. I’m certainly a track and wheel man through and through, but if both sides are equipped like this, it doesn’t feel much different to Cold War/Modern Conflicts to me. I’m not a fan of Grav etc, but I’m thinking of going down this route to give one force a completely different feel to the other. If not I may be thinking 1980’s BAOR with Mecha units when I play.

    Glad you liked it and lovely to see it is front page news. I had thought to do the AAR in the form of a piece by one R Kipling of the Hindustan Times (or some similar rag), but time and my complete lack of computer skills put pay to this. Maybe one day I’ll have the time to give it a go…

    I’ll be along again to help out and run a demo/participation game. Had great fun at the inaugural event.

    Lovely AAR as always and love the figures. Not my sort of ruleset but enjoyed reading through the AARs.

    Agreed!

    BTW, the latest issue of WS&S has a detailed report on their wargaming survey from earlier this year. Very interesting reading given this topic.

    I think you’re right. From reading the Osprey series on the Scnadanavian armies of the period, they were somewhat behind Western Europe in terms of armour development. The Danes and Germans were more ‘Westernised’ than their opponents IIRC.

    By and large I think things are ok as they are. Sadly there will always be a few members who seem to take pleasure in disagreeing with anything that anyone says. Constructive critiscism is welcomed; moaning for the sake of it is not.

    Check out the authors Blog for plenty of info for the figures he uses for his forces.  Hope this helps?

    I largely agree with you Michael. For me I think it it roughly a 50/50 split between painting/making and wargaming. The harsh reality is that time is limited for gaming these days so much more time is spent planning, dreaming and making etc.

    I’ve had a load of these for what seems like donkeys years and have never got around to painting them. This might inspire me to get them finished!
