Re: Army Lists for Marlborough /Queen Annie's War

I asked the same question - I think on the Facebook group. A tumbleweed drifted by on the wind. Nobody spoke.

Perhaps an exchange of ideas here is called for?

Re: 28mm WW2 Italians

By coincidence I was checking my records yesterday as I needed to touch up the paintwork on some damaged 1940 Italians. Mine are 20mm; mostly Airfix and Italeri plastics.

I've used Vallejo Green Grey for the uniforms and German WW2 Field Grey for the helmets.

Ebor Lard Report

Ebor lard II this Saturday was great! Thanks, John and the other locals for organising it.

Re: Multi-sided SP?

Thanks John. My plan is to have multiple (perhaps three) players for each "faction" (I'm not keen on that term but in this case it's convenient). If playing Sharp Practice, I'd probably use the same chit numbers for multiple Leaders. So the French might have three players each of whom has Leaders ac...

Re: Multi-sided SP?

Thanks Contrarius. That sounds like wise advice. I’d need to come up with an alternative way of determining the end of a Chapter of course. Maybe have distinctively coloured Tiffin chits and only have the Chapter end if a particular one of them came out first. Alternatively, I could have Chapters en...

Multi-sided SP?

I'm planning a large, multi-player gaming weekend set in the fictional Woebetides Islands in the early 18th century. There will be four "factions" in the game; the English, the French, the native Woebetideus, and the Arab traders/pirates. Because of this four-sided situation I'm considering Studio T...

Re: Ebor Lard II - The Yorkshire Lardy Day

John,

Having enjoyed putting on a game at Posh Lard, I'm keen to come to Ebor Lard next. I'd like to offer a game of Sharp Practice set during the Maximilian Adventure.

Re: Possible Posh Lard Jun 2 2019 - interest?

Right, having now listened to The Miller’s Tale episode 6, I hear that you’re looking for D-Day related games. Obviously neither of mine are that.

Will you accept off-theme games? If so I think Maximilian Adventure would be best - no point bringing yet another WW2 game that doesn’t fit.

Re: Possible Posh Lard Jun 2 2019 - interest?

I think I can do this Mike, subject to confirmation with the domestic authorities. My heart says to put on Ferrocarril de Veracruz , contra-guerrilla operations in 1860s Mexico for Sharp Practice but my head tells me I put a lot of work into the Menton 1940 terrain and should run Italian Invasion of...
