Re: Return to Caerfen- Orcs vs Elves

Nice big armies in a relatively small space - the joys of Hexon!

Re: fields

Very effective, I will have a go at that.

A local craft store had that thin crafting rubbery sheets that peole use for rivers, but they had some texured brown ones, which I think would make good fields, though I am not sure whether they have any longevity (from heat and light).

12mm ACW action on a pinboard

Putting 12mm figures onto a pinboard for a divisional engagement between Confederate and Union troops (ACW). A blog post that shows the new pinboard painted up and giving a short AAR to highlight the sort of game that can fit into such a space. LINK http://battlefieldswarriors.blogspot.com/2018/12/p...

Re: A Bridge Too Far

Nice done, I like the sense of the real bridge that the long span gives and the way that buildings along the banks have the bridge towering over them.

Re: Mars kallistra

I have put a link below to the Sci Fi page at Second Chance Games.

have a look at the High Speed Hover game, square grids (that shouldn't matter) and large vehicular counters, it may have interesting rules that would suit.

Re: Battle of Hoth Star Wars rules

Nice and concise with good variation. I like the idea that Luke’s craft for the modifier is only known to the rebels, that should bring some fun.

Re: 6mm Star Wars and Hexon

What a great set up. The title says 6mm, but are some of those vehicles such as the ATS from the new Star wars sets?

Tactical WWII on a Kursk battlefield

I have added a tank only scenario for the Tigers at Minsk hex based rules.

The set-up includes randomly placed terrain on a 12 x 9 hex grid.

Re: H&HM Norman v Saxon (Round 2)

Thanks Paul, I need to get off my butt and get mine painted! I am a bit stuck in deciding whether to stick with standard basing or whether to go with large base 80mm frontages. I have done a few and like them, but they can look a bit 'strange' balancing on hills!

Discussion thread on WWII rules

A gamer has opened up a thread at Board Game Geek to discuss the rules, in particular in moving the system to a larger table and loosening the recovery from Op. Fire marked status. It has all of the ingredients to become an interesting thread (for me at least). Here is a link to my blog, which some ...
