Warlord plastic WSS infantry

Quick question:

Am I right in guessing that the two Warlord games boxes of (ex-Wargame Factory) War of the Spanish Succession infantry contain the same sprues but different painting guides?

Re: Domain of Soissons and Merovingian Franks

Hi! Just got Dux Brit and I’m keen to try it with a load of figures I originally put together to do the Armorican Bacaudae with Lion Rampant.

Is the Domain of Soissons supplement still available?

Re: Cleaning oxidised figures

Thanks guys. So the standard view seems to be that paint trippers of various kinds should clean off the surface oxidation too?

I think I'll try Dettol first as that's what I usually use and it's not too harsh.

Cheers!

Cleaning oxidised figures

My mother-in-law gave me this 54mm figure recently. It was painted by a (now deceased) friend of hers many years ago and it clearly means a lot to her. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-yAVPEPbGo_c/XhC7tSLpsYI/AAAAAAAAMZE/Do5133bAmqMQGDkCVA9tTaiHGvHvCLJQQCLcBGAsYHQ/s320/fullsizeoutput_6eb.jpeg Unfortunatel...

You may like to note that the price is listed as £6.55 but when you select the product it appears in the basket at £6.60.

Re: SP2 - too static?

If a Sharp Practice game is too static, that’s probably the fault of whoever designed the scenario.

I’d recommend a read of Bob Mackenzie’s essay on the subject:

Re: Steel Lard 2019!

That was an excellent day's gaming. Thanks Tom and the other Sheffield Lardies for organising and thanks to all attendees for the splendid spirit in which it all went off.

Re: Negative Force Ratings and Big Chain of Command

I had much the same issues trying to balance my Menton 1940 game as one of the Italian platoons is green CCNN with a negative rating. I was trying to balance multiple versions (2-5 players) in advance of the game’s first outing at Posh Lard. I did look at costing the CCNN platoon as a support option...

Re: Army Lists for Marlborough /Queen Annie's War

I asked the same question - I think on the Facebook group. A tumbleweed drifted by on the wind. Nobody spoke.

Perhaps an exchange of ideas here is called for?
