Any good concepts for Movement & Firing Sticks

Post by wireme61 »

Has anyone developed a good movement and firing stick concept?
I noticed DB had a version to denote the 5cm distance in his play through video.
What distances are they marked at?

W61,

That measuring stick was a remnant from our Waterloo 2002 mega-game we did at the National Army Museum.

Gerry Elliot (of the old Wargames Holiday Centre in Scarborough and Grand Manner fame) came down to play armed with a set of these measuring sticks.

It was marked up for General de Brigade 15mm musketry at 10cms and 20 cms; I simply added a 5cms for our video.

Hi Dave, these measuring sticks look great. Are you happy with them? Would you change anything?
Thanks Gerry

Hi Polish Lancer
Love the look of the measuring sticks you have had made up for you. I think they are just the job for GDA games.
With them being made of 3mm MDF is there a risk of them snapping ?
Would you be able to say who has produced them for you ? As I would really like to buy a couple of sets.

Hi Dave
Merry Christmas to yourself and everyone else.
Just wanted to let you know I received 2 sets of the measuring sticks on Monday (23rd) .
Spent Christmas Eve assemble the pieces. They are well produced by Somerset models, but obviously designed by you.
They are ideal for GDA and fit perfectly with all other accessories. (Status and casualty markers)
I would certainly recommend them for gamers and the service from Somerset models is second to none.
Thanks once again.
All the best for the New Year.
Martyn.
