    Lovely work. They look like AB figures?

    I really enjoyed reading that and looking at the pics. Thankyou!

    I use 0.50mm styrene for my 6mm figures, which minimises any height ‘distortion’. For 10mm and above I base on either 1.50mm ABS/Styrene sheet or 1 pence and 2 pence coins.

    Great AAR Michael. I just wish my Junkers were as effective as yours in this scenario.

    Lovely work Keith. Very tempted by the new figures to go up against my RUSK troops, either with Gruntz! or NEIS rules.

    Lovely looking game and full of incident. I tried to like Maurice but it never really grabbed me. Glad you enjoy it though and that it’s produced some great game for you.

    Glad you liked them Brigadier General. They are all from Pendraken and the Late Romans are just superb sculpts.

    When playing KR-16 with Michael it is, unsuprisingly, Kometenmelodie. For my planned Gruntz! forces it will be a mix of the ‘official’ background and my own personal preferences, based largely on my experiences over 40 odds years as a wargamer.

    “This had elements from my NAC  2nd Heavy Armor Brigade Combat Team and Pan European 7ème Brigade Blindée. Of all the demo games I played this year it was the most relaxed and enjoyable, because my opponent Steven was lovely.”

    Blushing somewhat at this praise, but I have to say that this was certainly the most fun and memorable game of the year, due to Ashley being an outstanding opponent and ambassador for the game. I haven’t laughed so much in a game for several years. Add to this her wonderfully painted armies (one of which apparently wasn’t finished but I couldn’t tell) and you have a game that will stay in my memory for many, many years to come.

    So thanks for the memories Ashley!

    A token present in the form of a couple of Del Prado N gauge trains for use with BKCII. Both will receive new paint jobs and one possibly some minor conversion works.

    1 for me as I find I can then concentrate on the game, how I want to manoeuvre my forces etc,  rather than constantly trying to remember the specific rules for a specific game.

    Those are lovely miniatures and a wonderful looking game.

    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!

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

    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…

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