Re: First Game

planning to check other companies out for a few models, would love a few crouching/kneeling Gauls, perfect for ambush points and similar.

raid on a camp could be good too, need to make some of the terrain bits Gauls can have

Re: First Game

very likely entirely down to me, cavalry dropped on a flank, while the main body were still off the table (I was hoping the Romans would move forwards a bit nearer an actual ambush point) - had the cavalry not had my usual dice they would have seen off a Legion (hitting them in the rear) and likely ...

Re: First Game

ahhh, didn't realise they could evade, thats down to me then on that one. Though to be honest if what else I had planned had worked them being squished would have been worth it (it completely disrupted the Roman line for example with legions facing in three different directions, just couldn't get in...

Re: First Game

Speaking as the chump in question, who wasn't taking it easy.... just getting hammered as usual.. Status III Gaul leader, with two units of noble cavalry, they went separate ways to fight different units, both were wiped before breaking, guess its not too hard for a unit of 6 who get hammered - firs...

Daft Question

daft question... if a gun, say an MMG is the gun and five crew, presumably it takes all the crew to fire it? i.e. its not a gun, a gunner and four blokes who can fire rifles. though I assume they could fire rifles if not firing the main gun ? ditto for a squad LMG, its the LMG and three crew, so the...

Re: ACW and Sharp Practice

Bought the "Battle in a Box" set specifically to use with SP, easily enough for two forces with a few options, as noted lists in the main book but its all pretty standard stuff. the "Terrible Sharp Sword" pdf is a good read, though for SP v1 not the current rules, nice little campaign in it and the ...

Re: 28mm American Civil War

No idea, they could probably do the peninsular or waterloo though as they have the models in plastic to do it. This lot had the first outing today, needless to say I got a silver medal, without even knocking a single force morale point from my opponent. turns out a block of three line infantry with ...

Re: Do I need a Dremel?

I used to have a knock off one, about twenty years ago, they can be useful, but a lot depends how you work and also what your working area is like - like many tools if its to hand you will use it, if you have to clear space and set it up each time basically you won't. mine was a basic one, but I pow...
