Re: Visibility in woods

Bit late to the conversation, but also if you are doing North American (or old/wild European) woodland/forest, I would not have a single huge area's of woods on the table. Having spent some time in the wilder area's here in Ontario, UK woods/lands are not at all like true wild unmanaged area's of tr...

Re: A question of armour

I'm no expert but I suspect it's a combination of things vs to make the system and levels of troops work vs. anything specific like you are asking.

Re: 15mm Mini recommendations?

Thanks, one of my issues with Dux B is the 'sparse' look of figures in games in 28mm. I know people like the 28mm models (as I do as well - I have a good collection of them), but games can often be far too close to a few small groups of 6 men 'not talking a flag for a walk' for my visual liking. ;) ...

I bough them direct mail order from their pick a brick site.

These are round 1x1 bricks and 1x1 round plates (for the base attachments). I found craft magnates which fit perfectly in the top which was a bonus.and glues them in :)

Re: Flight stand assistance

Just use Lego :) I know it sounds weird but I started buying all sort of expensive stands for air games and in the end now use lego for the 1/600 miniatures. Works a treat and is simple and easy. Its also cheap and easy to get more, as you need them. You can paint the bases and number that as you wi...

Re: Levy Monks

From my brief reading I have not seen anything that shows that the monks/priests of the period creating a true martial order or force to really defend themselves. However, I believe there there is some small evidence of some religious locations being defended/fortified against raiders - by putting u...

Re: 15mm Mini recommendations?

I have started painting my old glory (and other manufacturers) 15mm's and for this and other games. I'm going big with the smaller scale. So 40 x 40 or 40 x 30mm basing per 'figure'. That means there will be 6 to 8 of the 15mm figures per base and thus per 28mm base. I think this will look like a re...

Re: 15mm Mini recommendations?

The soon to be released to the public 'Forged in Battle 3' figures are really nice. :)

I have load of OldGlory15's which are a little later - really Anglo-Saxon/Norman/Viking period but they are not bad figures especially for the pice if you are doing 'multiple figure bases.
