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?
Interesting as my wargaming chums hated it to a man!
WWII – BKCII, CoC
SCW/AVBCW – BKCII
Ancients – Dux Bellorum
ECW – Pike & Shotte
Medieval – Lion Rampant, Hail Caesar
Cracking looking game.
I like that a lot. Off to the Paper Soldiers website to see what I can find….
Lovely looking table and seems like a cracking game.19/10/2014 at 08:00 in reply to: African Imagi-nation After Action Report on my Blog #10878
Very nice indeed and welcome to the forum.
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!
Those are lovely figures you’ve got there.07/10/2014 at 21:10 in reply to: Duchy of Warsaw, 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment #10194
Cracking looking game.
Great looking game and table. The river works a treat.
Well said Michael.
Very nicely done.
I’ve put up a review of the day on my Blog, with some links to other views of the show as well.
Cracking looking table. Off to check out more at your website…
Just a quick note to say ‘thankyou’ to Michael and Sam for such a cracking little show. I had a great time and nice to know that by and large the traders thought it worth attending. I will put a proper overview on my Blog later on. Oh and happy to help out again in the future.
This is the best info I’ve found so far. Sadly not painting guides but should give you an idea. Hope this helps?
I prefer the coloured shutters (call it artistic licence) as it makes the buildings stand out more on the table. If they were grey/white as you point out, I think they would look a bit too dull. Just my two penneth.
Thanks for the ‘heads up’ on the article. I would love to attend the show, but the weekend always clashes with our sons birthday. Hopefully one day I’ll get to take him along as some of the games look great; I especially like the Seelow Heights one as I love BKCII.
Smart ‘phones are already being used in theatre as part of the British Army’s communications systems for soldiers. The same is true for other countries. See the link below:
The ‘Bad Guys’ are also using them, but mainly for simple comms in comparison to the Army versions. Therefore I would give the regular soldiers a command bonus etc due to these systems, that really do give them a battlefield advantage in being able to “see over the hill” as it were. I believe there are systems that block ‘phone signals in a local situation to prevent them being used to detonate IEDs.27/09/2014 at 13:43 in reply to: 15mm PSC Early War German Infantry – Painted Examples #9523
Cracking work and nice to see some different uniforms/units.
They look very nice.
Beautiful paint job Piers.
Minifigs sell the classic 1970’s ones. They are 25mm and some of the moulds are rather worn, so some cleaning up required in places. Hope this helps?
That’s very kind of you Russell and PM sent.
How about some Dutch or Belgians? Not on most peoples lists (they’re on mine in 10mm) but fun to game with I’m sure.
Nice pics (much better than I can achieve) and AAR.
Beautiful work once again Piers.
They look really great Thaddeus and show how effective massed small scale figures can be.
I dont’/can’t focus on one period. However I game almost exclusively in 10mm, with the odd move to 28mm for skirmish games.
I too recommend BKCII. Never had a bad game.
No problem William re: the delay. Look forward to seeing pics of it in the future.
I think the unit activation, and the uncertainty that it causes, will help in solo games. That is certainly the case with Dux Bellorum. I intend to play these rules solo in the main, so will feedback some thoughts when I’ve had a proper run out of the rules.
Ordered a copy yesterday. Looking forward to getting it and it may push me to finish a Battalion of US Paras to fight against my Italians…
