Re: Advice on making 15mm ww2 scenery

Hello Dave, Not strictly any help on how to build for 15mm but I found this article quite useful for getting some ideas of suppliers. https://themodelwarrior.wordpress.com/2015/07/07/15mm-ww2-terrain-review/ there are also some tutorials on various builds. Also a few good posts here: https://dereksw...

Re: (CoC) 5 Platoon: Breaking Through to Frost at Arnhem (Updated 20 May 19)

Nice write up - I really felt for your Pak throwing shots at the jeep to no effect! On a side note from your overhead shots at the start it looked like the paras got a JOP further up on their left (in the wooded area) than looks possible from the triangle generated from what appear to be the closest...

Re: House rules for double moves and single sixes.

It seems to me that your mechanism comes down to who rolls more sixes gets to have more double phases and do more with them, at a time of their choosing. I don't see how this solves the issue - if one person is rolling more sixes then they are going to have more command tokens and therefore more ini...

Re: 29 Let's Go campaign

Game 5 of our 29 Let's Go campaign, a rather strange one for me. https://nottherivercottage.blogspot.com/2019/05/29-lets-go-game-5-flanking-st-germain.html Hopefully one that I will learn a lot from, and more importantly make the necessary changes in future! https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OeabBAGkRJk/XN...

Re: Bunkers, Strong points, Trenches...

On a slightly different tact I'm not well versed in the Blitzkrieg book but I would certainly suggest a reduction in the firing arcs out of Bunkers and Fortifications. The benefits of cover came at a cost and that was usually a greatly reduced view. Perhaps an arc somewhere between 60-30 degrees rat...

Re: Painting Help - Pigs

Hi Chris, I would suggest browns and gingers if you want another option. Pictures are of a trio of female pigs which are Tamworth crossed with Mangalitsa, both considered rather old breeds so would be familiar in many periods if you want your pigs to cover vast areas and period options. https://3.bp...
