Re: Gunnar's Pacific Adventure

Well, have have the capability to paint with more detail, but for modern era games, I tend to just wash and drybrush to keep them subdued. It's a personal artistic choice for these guys as I like them to kind of blend in with terrain and also not take forever to paint. I take much more time with my ...

Re: Gunnar's Pacific Adventure

Here are some more minis that I just finished up a day or two ago. More US Army and some Japanese. I have the rest of the first Japanese squad finished, but I haven't photographed them yet. I will say that the camera is not forgiving on the simpler paint job with close ups, haha. Maybe longer shots ...

Re: CanCon Pacific terrain

John, I really hope you plan on showing how you did it, especially the ground cover for the jungle!

Re: Thrown Back & Retire movement

I would say they fall back towards where they charged from if they are the attacker or directly away from the axis of attack if they were the defender. If this causes them to push into another unit, place them on the other side of the interpenetrated unit. Nice and simple and it makes the most sense...

Re: Gunnar's Pacific Adventure

Thanks! With the news of the Far East supplement being up next, I decided to just pull the trigger.

Not a fan of the old plastics, but the paint job is great!

Re: Vehicle Compulsory Move

Hey John, fancy seeing you here. I would personally rule it that if it was pushed off the table, you'd have to move it back to reserves and redeploy, but I could see it counting as routing. Remember though, a vehicle can deploy up to 6" from the table edge, which should prevent this most of the time.

Re: Gunnar's Pacific Adventure

First squad of my Marines (minus a rifleman that I forgot) are ready for basing, once I figure out how I want to do them. The next squad will have even more faded uniforms. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DxtBqmPWsAEg-no.jpg https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DxtBqkrXgAURgIg.jpg https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dxt...

USMC Helmet Covers

Before I start to get silly, I just figured I would confirm something with the hive mind. Would all Marines in a unit would be ordered to use a specific side of their helmet covers (green or brown), or would they just be some raggedy-assed Marines and wear all sorts? I assume it would be the same ac...

Re: Green Troops and 4 Command Dice - A quick and easy solution to balance 6's rolled with 4, 5 or 6 command dice.

Personally, I think adding two to three new ways to measure troop quality/motivation is just adding more granularity than needed in the game. You start to get bogged down in things that are often intangible, like "stickiness" and "level of training." The factors that determine how well a unit fights...
