Re: War of the Roses Lion Rampant Game

Re: Anyone else getting Star Wars: Legion?

I noticed this on facebook this morning: "It's Competition Time! The ADFWGA has secured a copy of Star Wars Legion which will be a special door prize at ANZAC Cup 2018! "

I wish I could make it up there to attend.

Re: Longstreet AAR - The Battle of Cow Run

I still haven't played a game of Longstreet, despite buying the rules a while back now.

I seem to remember being put off that I needed two decks, one for each side, to play the game. Is this the case, or am I remembering a different game system?

Re: New to the Rum Corps

Unfortunately what you see is it. I don't post as often as I would like with my own projects - most of the time there aren't any kindred souls that are playing the same rules or doing the same type of projects, except for Captain Darling - our gaming tastes are similar. I also get my mojo reduced on...

Anyone else getting Star Wars: Legion?

As per the topic subject, is anyone else getting the game? I placed my pre-order in and apparently it is in the mail somewhere in Melbourne, which amazes me a bit, as it isn't due for release until the 22nd of March. I really just want the game for the miniatures to use with other rules, but i will ...

Nice figures, and welcome to the forum. I have SAGA and some miniatures I have never put together for the game... keep posting like this and I might get off my butt and do something about them. Chuckie - I find chainmail the easiest - just paint black and dry brush with metal. Chainmail is the thing...

Re: Flames of War Status

Interesting development. Wonder if it is to do with the move to broaden horizons. I see that 28mm is going very strong along with Cold War etc. I am still enjoying 20mm WW2, although recently see to have an eagerness for small scale modern war. I play skirmish games almost exclusively these days, a...

Welcome to the forum Ken. Great to see some new blood posting here. Except for a handful of folks, the forum is a bit quiet of late... hopefully that can change.

I was wondering the same thing.

I haven't seen much on 2018 in the various forums I visit.

Hey Easy and Dropbear! Great stuff! DB you may make Little Wars Melbourne, hope you can I’ll buy you a beer or two Saturday evening! Cheers! If the stars align we will have to do some planning for this. Hopefully I will have a better idea if I will be able to attend in the next three weeks or so.
