Re: 10mm WWII game, testing a Kursk based scenario

Thanks Dane. The rules are mostly done, they have been around for a few years in various guises, most recently as a DTP download to support a boardgame that used squares. This revision has taken them back to their figure / hex origins and moved some concepts forward, so the rules are quite tight and...

10mm game, home brew WWII rules

Sorry to cross post within the forum, but it seems this topic spans two boards that future interested parties might want to access. I have been writing rules to get a WWII tactical game into a small space (pinboard sized) and have made a post showing a Kursk scenario being playtested with the rules....

10mm WWII game, testing a Kursk based scenario

I have been working on a set-up to get a hex game into a small space (pinboard sized) using my own rules. Here is the first public outing of the figure version.

Re: Memoir44

Hello Graham, I went to a show last year where they were using Kallistra for M'44' they used red ribbon to divide the board up - it sounds too brash, but it actually looked quite good, probably because it was pulled tight and pinned under the wooden board. From memory, I think it was a multi player ...

Re: building's

Very good news. They do nice 15mm fencing, easy to put together and attractive and in lengths that fit with a Kallistra hex side, so hopefully they will do an early adoption of that for 10mm.

trees damaged by artillery and a field

The field has been formed onto a bare hex template (from Kallistra) and the trees are bits of twig hot glued onto a washer and then basing material added. The trees can be put together in stands to represent woodland that has been devastated by artillery, so ideal for WWI and WWII. This time of year...

Re: 28mm African skirmish

Hello Geert, the game looks great with plenty of terrain on the board. Are the hedges home made or commercial?

Using hexes on a small playing area

I have been doing a bit of a project to get a figure game onto a pinboard sized playing area. Originally this was to be an open board with commercial rules amended to 'scale down' to the smaller playing area. However, over the course of four monthly posts, the project morphed into a small hexed gami...

Re: Hello from a hex gamer

Dane, I play a wide range, though over recent years have looked for systems that have a lower density of rules. My most recent plays have been Hold Fast (block game), a Ghost Panzer (tactical WWII) and Danube 20 (Napoleonic series). Each of those games have been commented upon in some detail on my b...

Re: Making a marsh hex on a blank template

Thanks, the templates are sold by Kallistra, I think they might call them Forrest templates, but they are just thin plastic blanks and you can get them as singles or two hex or three hex varieties. I got a few to paint up grey to make town areas.
