Re: A few Ambuscade and Fisticuffs questions

Thanks Mon Cap. I plan to produce a pdf document of the troop type to be found in the Woebetides as well as background tables for the various Leaders, force lists etc. Happy to share when it's done. Greatly appreciate your views on the rules questions - it's always good to get a second opinion. Rich...

Warlord plastic WSS infantry

Quick question:

Am I right in guessing that the two Warlord games boxes of (ex-Wargame Factory) War of the Spanish Succession infantry contain the same sprues but different painting guides?

Re: Domain of Soissons and Merovingian Franks

Hi! Just got Dux Brit and I’m keen to try it with a load of figures I originally put together to do the Armorican Bacaudae with Lion Rampant.

Is the Domain of Soissons supplement still available?

Re: SP2 - too static?

If a Sharp Practice game is too static, that’s probably the fault of whoever designed the scenario.

I’d recommend a read of Bob Mackenzie’s essay on the subject:

Re: Steel Lard 2019!

That was an excellent day's gaming. Thanks Tom and the other Sheffield Lardies for organising and thanks to all attendees for the splendid spirit in which it all went off.
