Re: Mid-century urban board

Thanks KTiger for the very generous comments. I guess its something about making it yourself, all you see are the errors. Yep, Italy will inspire my next board, a WW2 one. It will be a more traditional board with pieces of terrain on top of the board/mat, rather than the static nature of this US bo...

Re: Mid-century urban board

Yeah, that's 100% American and will be only appropriate for battles on the US mainland. But damn, that is one hell of a gorgeous US mainland! I'm fairly sure I've seen movies which didn't have such beautiful buildings. If I got things right, your first idea was to go for Italy? At first, I'd have su...

Re: SYW Russian Special Rules

I'll see if I can find someone to test-play with, we'll use decoys (which is a very fancy name for "random figs and cardboard squares" :mrgreen: ) but it isn't impossible as I've got a mat and some accessories which could look the part for the Seven Years War.

Re: DIY hedges and gates.

I've spent years in the Northern French countryside, and these absolutely look like the real deal, great job! I'd find it awesome to play my Germans on a Normandy-themed mat decorated with hedges like these.

Re: Flame thrower teams, Close combat

Makes sense, especially since flamethrower crews were - for obvious reasons - extremely badly seen by the enemy, and were usually not taken as prisoners. So, if the enemy isn't pinned down by covering fire, the flamethrower bearer will be everyone's target, and being shot would be a better fate than...

Re: Two Iconic Brit Fighters

Well, you're now officially halfway towards building a plane to engage Fokkers and Pfalz's over the Somme :mrgreen: But to come back to the original topic, it's just sad that things like "stalling speeds" exist, because if it wasn't for that, it would have been a great thing to see a Camel, a Spitfi...
