6mm Northern shoulder of Kursk IABSM game

The latest remote texting game was a bit of a disappointment. I was in the mood for a tank bash and I try to do a Kursk game every July-pushed back a month due to C19 and I just got around to editing the pics. It was based on the lopsided engagement in the area between Step' and Hill 227.9 on the mo...

IABSM's Canadian VC in 6mm

The latest remote viewing and text game was from the IABSM rule book. Scenario 4, A Canadian VC. This game is based on the August 19, 1944 Canadian advance into St Lambert where the Allies are trying to plug the Falaise Gap. Normandy games look nice but with terrain like this you really have to send...

pt 2 FJ defense of Wulkow 4/45

We played this one remotely back in June and I just got around to editing the pics. 2 new players from the 1st game, but it picks up as the 2nd wave of Soviets are attacking. Jess is now the FJ player and Sheridan the Soviet. The defenders are down 28 out of 76 men, both Paks are gone, 1 MMG gone, a...

I really like these. Especially the flamethrower aspect.

Re: Wulkow 4/45 6mm IABSM part 1

There are so many incredible miniatures in 6mm now. And i think it conveys the empty battlefield much more effectively than 15mm or larger.
Thanks,

Wulkow 4/45 6mm IABSM part 1

I ran another remote game of IABSM using Messenger and my 6mm stuff. It was a late war East Front game that was suggested by one of the players I decided to do something a bit different and set this up to be a game run over 2 sessions with a different pair of gamers each time. Being a lazy git it me...

Re: Some noobie questions

For 6mm I just mount 3 to 5 minis on a penny and use 2 pennies for a section/squad. I also use a roster sheet to track the casualties per section instead of a micro dice next to the unit. The micro dice are too easy for me to knock over and lose the count. Earlier remarks regarding HT are also good....

Re: IABSM: Minsk-Mazowiecki

Another fun looking game, Rob. So nice to see a report of IABSM in action, especially one with so much horse flesh.

This is a good scenario that actually lets you get your British armor on the table. Thanks for posting.

Re: Coastal Patrol great for solo or remote gaming

I really am not up to a video, but the rules are pretty basic. The thing to remember is that this is like several TFL sets that require a way to determine which unit is activated. I just use poker chips in a bag and draw. Before the game decide which ships are in which blinds and which initial blind...
