Re: French Bicorne Styles?

Many thanks for the clarification, Baron Von Wreckedoften! That clears up a great deal! I'm not surprised that specialists wore distinctive attire, they are consistently shown with the epaulets and short sabers of elite companies too. Thankfully, it's only a couple of headswaps for me, since I've on...

Re: Basing

Why the obsession with sabots? I use multi-figure bases with small dice holders built into the rear of the base. This allows much more 'scenic' opportunities on the base and, to my mind at least, looks FAR, FAR better than sabots and individual bases and sabots... https://jacobite-painting.co.uk/17...

French Bicorne Styles?

Hello all! I've been wrestling with a uniform question that came up as I muddle along on my Peninsular War figures. I have a box of Victrix early French (1804-1807) that I plan on using for conversion fodder, but am somewhat stumped by their flattened bicornes. I had initially intended to use them f...

Re: 15mm on a 5x3 table

I'm looking at using 15mm figures. ... I like the idea of individual based figures, but is the table to small? I've played Chain of Command with 15mm figures at half-distance on a 3'x2', and it worked quite well! No reason Infamy shouldn't too. I ultimately decided that it was more fun to play at f...

Re: Basing

I use 25mm round mdf bases for 28mm figures, and 40mm round for cavalry. I'd rather err on the side of "open order" than have them be too crowded to play with, which was my experience with 20mm squares in Warhammer Fantasy. Your preferences may vary, of course. I know others use smaller bases for li...

Re: Questions on "Pinned"

I'm surprised at that FAQ entry, and will almost certainly disregard it, at least for AFVs. Pinned infantry are deriving protection from their posture, and any movement would compromise that protection, but a vehicle can't "hug the dirt" in place like a person can. The amount of repositioning a vehi...

Re: 28mm mdf buildings

Can heartily recommend TT Combat, Warbases, Sarissa, and 4Ground.

Re: Shock on Armoured Vehicle

you could I guess make it closer to infantry fire and reduce the number of dice but keep the to hit roll the same This is how I'd do it - drop [-1 dice / 2 Shock] when firing on infantry (with either an MG or with HE), apply the [-1 mod/Shock] when firing AT. AT and grenades are the only firing rol...

Re: Cavalry base sizes?

I'm a heathen who individually bases 28mm cavalry on 40mm circles for skirmish games. I think units look much more organic like that, as you can have the horses and riders look more fluid and in motion.

Re: French Resistance list

Something to consider support-wise is that, while you're not going to have much access to heavy equipment, there are a number of abstract support options whose game effects would still fit for a resistance force. I recommend looking at the various new options in Blitzkrieg 1940 especially, as Franc-...
