Re: Members in the Bromley area

To be honest I don't need a place - I built one, on the basis that if I build it they will come, or somesuch. https://www.flickr.com/photos/zippee/albums/72157633554453675 And I have two local clubs within 15 minutes. But if you fancy a game one weekend give me a shout at "zippee dot jerred @ ntlwor...

Re: Members in the Bromley area

It's not really a matter of distance but how tricky the journey is but I'm also not far away, just the wrong side of the river - E17

Re: Looking for a Napoleonic Game

Thanks for that in depth reply Zippee Blucher sounds interesting You say musketry is bundled in with close combat, but is there a shooting phase as well? Blucher is well worth a look, I assume the rest is about LFS: No there isn't, there is a bombardment phase for saturation artillery and grand bat...

Re: Looking for a Napoleonic Game

Is there a question in there? I've played LFS - quite a lot unsurprisingly and I have posted very many adaptions and basing options specifically for 6mm. Join the Yahoo group and look for my name in the files/folders there you will find a host of stuff for 6mm LFS. I've looked at the blurb for ESR -...

Re: How do I determine which version of LFS I have

You'd need to email Rich directly about that one I'm afraid

Re: How do I determine which version of LFS I have

LFS II has a picture of mamelukes charging across the front cover. LFS III has a French cuirassier general in the foreground whilst carabiniers file off in the background. Also helpfully, LFS II says in the Author Notes "Welcome to Edition two..." And LFS III says in the Preface "Welcome to Edition ...

Re: Artillery abandoning guns

It's true that disabling the guns would seem sensible and relativelt easy but the historical record proves that beyond breaking rammers, buckets and the like it just wasn't done. I wasn't suggesting it needed sappers, just that it gives another use for them in the rules. Evasion does take place befo...

Re: Artillery abandoning guns

No the rule is there to allow crews to retire to the safety of squares and then return to the battery once the threat has passed. Think of Waterloo as the classic example. You should also read sections 21 as referencing 19.5 for abandoned guns - supports retiring is essentially the same as an evade,...

Re: Just a thought

I'm sure somewhere someone will have used it for gladiators or space ships, doesn't mean it's a good idea! Personally I think the LOA is a bit of a stretch, it took major surgery to extend LFS into the Revolutionary Wars (which is part of what LFS III does over II). Late 17th Century warfare is whol...

Re: Sniper and LOS

That's not actually true as John quoted above The 2” mortar has only three rounds of High Explosive ammunition, the rest being all smoke rounds. It has no theoretical minimum range, but at under 12” the crew would normally use their rifles for reasons of their own safety. However, if using a 2” mort...
