Re: Possible Posh Lard Jun 2 2019 - interest?

Sorry Mike, I’m away that weekend - juggling work and dice rolling rather too much right now!

Re: Francs Tireurs. Is there a limit?

Though there is a comment from Rich on a recent FB thread (can’t find it immediately), saying that having more than one of each Nazi trick is more than shabby and shouldn’t be allowed, IIRC

Re: Mexican-American War

Still on my ‘to do’ list, I’m afraid. Picked up a lot of the lovely Eureka 18mm figures when SFFG was first released and never got any further. Definitely a project worth looking at. I see Ade (Deacon) is planning some stuff for the Alamo which is equally tempting thanks to Boothill Miniatures.

Re: British intervention force

Fenians immediately springs to mind, or use your British as Canadian Militia during the Riel Rebellion of 1885 (reminds me, must get that article completed for the next Christmas Special). More creatively, how about a Russian invasion of Canada via Alaska (not sold to the USA until 1867) or look at ...

Re: Order of battle to Sharp Practice

And if you want mass appeal, use one stand of 3-4 15mm figures rather than a single 28mm, so one Group of Regulars has 8 stands of 32 figures, with two groups representing a company - then try and manoeuvre a half-battalion in line. :-)

Re: Order of battle to Sharp Practice

As a general rule, SP seems to work best up to approx 1/10: so a single Group of 8 Line represents a company. Beyond that, you start to lose the intricacies of small unit tactics - when your 400-man unit is represented by 4 -6 Groups, you really appreciate the difficulties of manoeuvring a battalion...

Blitzkrieg - some questions after today’s game...

First outing for my 1940 Belgians today, playing first scenario “Going with a Bang”, and several questions arose on which I’d appreciate the collective’s opinion.... 1. Germans used an off-table machine gun as a Support. Rules say the player “must place a marker on the table edge” but which table ed...
