Flickr can be a real PITA, but it's possible to embed images from there if you try.
You have to find a place where you can get the actual url for the image rather than the url for a Flickr page displaying the image.

Here's Kustenjagers picture from above.

I found that one by right clicking on the photograph on the link above, left clicking on the Medium 500 link. Then I right clicked on the image, selected View image and copied the resultant url http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7118/7530 ... c3203d.jpg

My photobucket pictures on doing a test post (only looked at preview and never posted in the end) were chopped in half. Is there a certain size for pictures here, or is there a problem with Photobucket? Anyone else having the same problem?

Loks like the answer to your question is yes, about 560 pixels wide. Each of the blocks in this picture is 100 pixels wide and there are 8 blocks in the full size picture.

Agent P - sorry hadn't seen this, when the extra boards were added.

The first game in 10mm we played with 50x30mm base for a rifle team, and 25x25mm base for LMGs - this was because I already had the large bases from BKC.

Since then I have done a lot of rebasing - and now have 2 figures on a 30x15mm base, for rifles, LMGs and support still on 25x25mm. This allows a better spread out of troops, and needs less markers for casualties.

We have been playing distances as written - mainly for simplicity.
