    Excellent paint work Arteis, that magnificent firing line will soon impose Pax Britannica.

    My wife and I certainly enjoyed Fury, although it is a very brutal depiction of war and not for the faint hearted. Tiger 131 is, of course, the star of the film and is a beast of a big cat!

    A finely painted and mounted lady, William Harley; she is a lovely addition to your collection.

    I have cherry picked wargame rules before William Harley but it always easier to use a standard set that others have access to and can have input. My regular opponent isn’t that keen on “Bolt Action” but you never know.

    TT,

    I remember seeing the very impressive display game of Arnhem at Campbelltown. I hope to be going again this year to the Midlands Military Meet. Will you be putting on another splendid game?

    I can’t PM on here as yet but you can email me at tassie (dot) wargamer (at) yahoo (dot) com (dot) au to send the pdf. Thank you.
    Cute dog by the way.

    Cheers,

    I’ve known Jacksarge and gamed with him for years TT. He is the only historical wargamer locally that has stayed with it and that I have regularly played against. Sadly we rarely game these days.

    “that doesn’t restrict what you can field”

    “That’s a strange request – do you mean has not historical organisational basis?”

    Hi Truscott Trotter,

    It means that while I will generally follow historical organisation I do like the option of occasionally giving some of the oddments I have on my shelf an outing.

    I have played “Battlegroup” but it taxes my brain and memory very greatly, particularly as I only rarely have a chance to play.
    I had forgotten about Charles Grant’s “Battle” and would quite happily give it a try. I’m on the coast, Ulverstone to be precise. Not much historical gaming up this end of Tas.

    Cheers

    William Harley there isn’t much difference in height between Spencer Smith and Hinchliffe miniatures. Spencer Smith infantry may be a fraction taller but Hinchcliffe infantry have more bulk and plenty of detail. Mounted figures vary but are generally about the same height, although once again, Spencer Smith lack the bulk and detail of Hinchcliffe. In my opinion the Hinchcliffe Miniatures range are really nice looking figures and seriously good value for money.

    That is a splendid collection of miniatures with lovely paint work William Harley. While I don’t have a favourite manufacturer, at the moment my own collection includes Spencer Smith, Hinchliffe Miniatures and zinnfiguren.

    While all the films you listed AB have had quite a strong influence on my interest in sci.fi., the greatest influences on me were (and still are) television serials like Dr Who, Blake’s Seven or Battlestar Galactica.

    An erudite and informative article (as is the entire website). It is a useful introduction to the French forces and milita in Canada.

    I can’t say I have a wide experience of Napoleonic rules but I recently played Black Powder for the first time and they proved quite enjoyable and fairly easy to pick up. I played Shako 1st edition for years and found them to be a generally good set of rules, so I presume Shako 2nd edition is equally as good.

    My own interest in the Eighteenth Century is chiefly centred on the Seven Years War because of the amazing variety of uniforms and the many different campaign theatres. It has unfortunately remained a project in waiting, although I have amassed a variety of 30mm flats, semi-rounds and round miniatures from which to form my armies. I hope to eventually achieve enough impetus to fully immerse myself in wargaming the Age of Reason.
