Re: FIW PAINTING TIPS

I have a project that is very similar. I haven’t started yet but I’ve been using the new(ish) Citadel Contrast paints by GW. I’ve been paining models for a western game but I’ve been using one of their flesh tones (Guilliman Flesh) over the GW Wraithbone base spray. It’s a bit redder than I would li...

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE

I actually have been looking at Warlord’s SPQR but the rules and gameplay seemed bogged down by something I can’t quite put my finger on. But that starter box is gorgeous and I want to paint Romans...I’ll be buying these rules too. Can’t wait.

Re: Scratch build, Signal box

Hey John, that looks great! I have a question for you. What size rail are you using for the tracks? I saw the picture where you showed the controllers cables linking to rail and was just wondering what size it is. I’ve always struggled to get something to match 28mm reliably and have been considerin...

Re: CoC 28mm Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Ausf.D Hanomag

Hot on the tails of the British M5 is my first attempt at German Armour. This Hanomag will soon be seeing action against the Red Devils..... Should be interesting to see how Man U cope with it. What do we think - a diamond midfield, or perhaps two wing-backs sweeping in front of the centre-halves? ...

Of course, the cause of US aviation wasn't helped when those nutters at Salem executed the pioneers of manned/womanned flight and burnt their infernal machines/broomsticks....
I grew up near there. They are astonishingly proud of that.

Re: AWI airport defence scenario

I’ve been at a FEMA training for three days and haven’t had time to check the boards. Thank you all for this. Very funny and gave me a good chuckle at the start of my last training session.

Re: Saga Age of Crusades

I think Saga is a solid game. Haven’t tried the second edition but I don’t mind the boards telegraphing a bit. I’m my opinion, warfare was more intimate and I find that because there is less shooting and less camouflage, I don’t need as much “fog of war”. I generally play it figures 1-1 so my 6pts o...

Re: Out of my depth

95th rifles are, naturally, going to be gathered at some point but I've been finding sourcing a good box of them a bit tricky if I want a few groups. Warlord Games just released a plastic 95th box. I want to say it’s 10men so maybe two boxes (3 groups of 6 +2 for maybe officers). They’ve also got a...

Re: Sharp Practice AWI at Cold Wars

Great report. Looks a cracking game! As a Bostonian who grew up on the edge of the Green every Patriots Day, I sometimes forget the other interesting skirmishes during the Siege of Boston. Great use of the events (even loosely) for an engaging scenario.
