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...

Re: New to the Rum Corps

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 wish I could be to Canberra for the ADFWA event but I am in Victoria and probably will be doing drill training leading up to ANZAC day a...

Re: CanCon 2018 Any Feedback, Thoghts or Pictures?

I was wondering the same thing.

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

About the best I have seen is some vendors posts on facebook thanking people for coming.

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.

Like every one else, a bit of the same as 2017, withthe following modificaions: 15mm WW2 gaming using the 'Disposable Heroes: Point Blank" rules. This will also be mixed in with a bit of 20mm WW2 for the same rules, as my gaming buddy has 20mm figures to use. Small skirmish games using the &quo...

Robin Hood would work ok. A series of missions including robbing the rich, rescuing captured outlaws, ambushes.

Re: small skirmish games

Fantasy would be easy to do, either am assassin or group of thieve in a city, or Conan the barbarian. I think the Conan would be easier to do, as I would only need Conan and a Companion and someone to fight. I even have a Conan in a bag somewhere. https://cdna2.artstation.com/p/assets/images/images/...

I have to amit, this project has really kicked my thoughts in to over drive. I am convince a Wild West game would work. The scenery can still be varied enough to have a diffent set up each time, from the main street in a town, a rocky outcrop, a corral, a mine site or just the wilderness. For a town...
