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...

Re: Coastal Patrol great for solo or remote gaming

I did run a small game yesterday via texting and it went well, especially for the Soviets. Scenario involved 2 armed trawlers and a R boate on picket and some D3 mtbs and Mo4 trying to get through the line. We didn't know what was even on the table til spotted and had no idea of crew quality. Coasta...

Re: IABSM Greece41 Glider Assault game

I had a few folks ask how they can get Chris' Campaign for Greece supplement for IABSM since it was no longer listed on the Lardies site. Well, it looks like it is now available through Chris' blog site

Coastal Patrol great for solo or remote gaming

If anyone is thinking about an easy game to adapt for social distancing play, I would recommend Coastal Patrol. It's got a layered blind system that makes it extremely easy to solo play with unknown units underneath. Also no trouble to set up take down terrain. You can even run a game without miniat...
