Wake in Lard!
Truly inspired! And opens up a run of:
  • Lardabout
  • Lard Boy
  • Picnic at Hanging Lard
  • Strictly Lardroom
and perhaps pushing it too far...
  • Priscilla, Queen of the Lard

Re: Royal Marines Napoleonic War

For some examples or inspiration, have a look at Tom Pocock's Stopping Napoleon: War and Intrigue in the Mediterranean or Chris Hall's Wellington's Navy: Sea Power and the Peninsular War 1807-1814

Re: Lard Down Under

Picking up on that last theme, my wife has chipped in with:
  • You're the Lard
  • The Pub with no Lard
  • Lardy Day too far away
and perhaps beyond the pale for so many reasons...
  • Six White Lardies
But she's also a big fan of "It's a Lard way to the top..."

Lard Down Under

Having seen the spirit of lard so well displayed in the titles of UK Lardy Games Days , I am wondering if we Australian champions of lard should not reflect similarly. My understanding is that there are now two reasonably regular Lardy Games Days in Oz - as part of CanCon and MOAB. So, to get the ba...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 06 01 20)

Another great installment and worth the wait - would love to have seen your armoured cars on the road but great to see good old fashioned assault with their bombs and their guns carry the day.

Re: Questions on "Pinned"

1. Are AVFs pinned if caught in a barrage? We presumed not but they can take shock and it does not seem clearly defined in the description under barrage rules. Aware you roll for potential damage. My understanding is everything under a barrage is pinned - from p. 19 of the FAQ : Q: Are all troops a...

Re: Unit Facing

So the right way to read it is that figures within the same unit should be able to shoot provided the figure has a clear line of sight even if the gap is smaller than 2".

Re: French Use of Grenades at Gallipoli?

I also had a look at the Australian War Memorial site, and that suggested a different approach. There is a photo of a "French trench catapult" (albeit somewhat obscured in the shot) with the caption "Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey. August 1915. During a long period of stagnation the time was chiefly oc...
