It’s now showing for some reason or other!
Sadly the image is not showing Andrew. Great that you got in game in though and look forward to seeing it when the image issue is fixed
I’m glad to hear that you and Samantha can now get some regular gaming in with people you like. I now game as and when FtF gaming can resume chez moi with friends, rather than a club, which we all find a much more enjoyable experience. Let’s hope you find time to write up some AAR’s of your games.
Yep, their packaging is brilliant and never had any problems.
Good to see you making progress Andrew:)
Great little game Vincetn and good to see you getting some FtF gaming in:)
I always compare Amazon, Abe Books (owned by Amazon I believe ) and Ebay to see which is the cheapest. Also some of the 2nd hand book shops in the UK now have good sites you can order from, thus avoiding Ebay and Amazon ‘fees’.
I loved Mordheim and still do but haven’t played for ages. Some thoughts in no particular order:
- Don’t buy armour, it’s not worth it early on, go for fighting with a weapon and dagger.
- Skaven are lethal and generally won all the campaigns we played.
- You need lots of terrain to really make it work as a game, with different levels being important to add fun to the game.
- It works best as a campaign, so you see your characters advance. One off games are dull IMHO.
- Play for the fun and the superb background story. Have fun with your warbands and don’t uber powerful as it’s no fun for anyone.
- Ideally you want 3-4 players per game.
- Dwarves are fun but useless in scenarios requiring speed (think Skaven here).
- Use any figures you like, not just the GW ones, although they are great. I’m tempted to do this in 10mm but simply don’t have the time!
Hope this helps?
I’m not sure which came first in the early to mid ’70’s, but contenders are Thane Tostig, Chainmail, D&D or Airfix Magazine Guides WWII rules.
Currently playing Shadow of the Eagles Napoleonics rules.
Very nice Willz!
Thanks for the AAR Chris and great to see this superb scenario getting an outing:)24/07/2021 at 07:46 in reply to: 20 hours of serious practice to be good at something? #159358
Very true Ian. I’ve seen very experienced modelmakers and designers who frankly weren’t that good.23/07/2021 at 07:31 in reply to: 20 hours of serious practice to be good at something? #159287
I’d have to say No, based upon my experience of teaching modelmakers and designers how to make simple shapes etc with handtools. 20 hours equates to 2 1/2 days work, which is not enough time. It might allow you to feel confident with one tool and one material, but say changing from foam to wood would be a whole new ball game.
Great looking game Mark!
Leven Miniatures castle components have wall sections:
Hope this helps?
Great idea Andrew. I’d also have a look at Bob Cordery’s ‘Portable Wargames’ series, which again need minimal space, terrain and figures/counters.
Also completely agree about us being and needing to be open about mental health.
What a lovely looking game!
Superb work!03/07/2021 at 15:20 in reply to: Imagination Tiberian Milice de Reserve Rioja battalion #158421
The originals are much, much better than the new editions but John Curry, but then they can be a lot cheaper. You certainly did well in getting all of those for $25!
An excellent looking game!
When such things occur in a game, we tend to go with the most likely outcome, so we can carry on playing. No rules can cover every conceivable situation, so this solution works for us.
You could mail Leon and check how tall the Pendraken giants are:
My friends and I will get the book, read the rules, then as we play, figure out any ambiguities, discover bits we hadn’t twigged in the read through etc. After a few games we’ve either learnt the rules as we enjoy them, or ditched them as they don’t deliver the sort of game we like. Keeping to the same stable of rules also helps moving across periods, so Warlord Games ‘Black Powder’ and ‘variants’ being a case in point.
That’s a lovely looking game you’ve got there:)
Great work chaps and this setting lends itself very well to scratch built ships etc.
Those look superb!
That’s superb Mark and I certainly enjoyed your Blog post!
Simply brilliant work Mark!
Lovely work again and nice to know how you do the backgrounds.
Excellent work on those!
Great work as always and love the background shots, which add to the whole:)
Great work and nice flags too.
Very impressive Michael.
A very useful selection of maps and Google is very useful too, especially if you can get some street view views etc.
Very useful review Norm.01/05/2021 at 13:42 in reply to: 6th Prussian Dragoons circa 1740’s Spencer Smith figures. #155767
