Re: Longstreet Cancon 2019. Game 5. Battle of Meridian.

A seriously good looking game! Lots of wonderful figures!

I won’t even try to get you to let me know how you handled this multi player with the decks 😀!

We’re there many in t(e crowd drawn to the spectacle of this game?

Well done to all of you!

Seriously dodgy when the non phasing side can only play one interrupt per game turn against an opponent, haha, anyway as long as you were okay with it!

Re: Longstreet Cancon 2019. Game 4. Battle of Mobile.

Hmmmm, that sounds dodgy we don’t play by the Sam’s Multi player rules but you should have a rule where only one interrupt can be played by non phasing players on any one player in a turn even if multiple players are in contact with said player. In my view you were short changed, but if that’s how t...

Re: Longstreet Cancon 2019. Game 4. Battle of Mobile.

Okay interesting battle looks great again due to good figures and setup! Lovely... With 2 on 2 how did you play the decks? Did you have a overall commander like suggested in the rules by Sam with limits on who plays interrupt cards or just play 2 side by side independent games and just total the bas...

Re: 2018 Christmas - Hobby Related Gifts

Thanks! An FCM2C hmmm you’ll use a bit of plastic there. I bought a 1/56 resin FCM36 from Mad Bob Miniatures, the original was a print (the top print lines are all removed but you can see them in the cast underneath along the running gear. The FCM36 is the coolest ‘Art Deco’ tank design, pretty aver...

Re: Longstreet Cancon 2019. Game 3. Battle of Decatur.

Thanks!

Are you using the minimum force sizes by year as well as following the card dates, if so things turn really nasty for the south in 1864, less cards and a smaller force!

Re: Longstreet Cancon 2019. Game 3. Battle of Decatur.

You are on a roll with three victories well done!

Did you play the same person each game or were all the Yankee leaders pretty timid?

BTW I assume you’re using 40mm square bases?

Re: 2018 Christmas - Hobby Related Gifts

Very good Easy! Lucky man.

Looking at the mat and assuming a centimetre per square you’ve got some big vehicles there!

Does a print take much of the ‘product’?

Do you have a designs for any 1940 French tanks (I see an older FT 17 in the picture)?

Cheers

Re: Longstreet Cancon 2019. Game 2. Battle of Cairo.

Again nice pictures Easy, I always seem to forget to take pictures myself half the time!

The Union 'hung back' so again no charges/offensive action from them? Poor show, Lincoln won't be happy :D !

Hmm the campaign segment isn't helping you, 2 units cautious already after 2 games not good!

Re: Longstreet Cancon 2019. Game 1. Battle of Rollo.

Ah a big mistake for Yankees to sit back and take it, many are awed by the Rebel Yell card, their charges can do well especially with one of the many other charge 'kicker' cards and it also gets them Epic Points.

Yes the Stand like a Stonewall is good too!

Well Easy it’s going to take a while to read through all your posts! Like your figures and the terrain is very cool. Good big set up looks like multiple single games along side each other. Good game and pictures congratulations on the win! Re Rebel Yell when I play the Yankees I find the best defenc...

1/56 Cornfields

Well you can never have too much terrain. Saw a tutorial for making cornfields in the ACW Gamer Ezine for 54mm figures and adapted it to 1/56. Not perfect but it certainly looks okay and costs very little...it uses those twisting ties like on some bread bags... A (poor) photo of my Zouaves in the co...

Re: First French Brigades for Blucher

90 x 60 wow allows for a lot of diorama type basing. Your games should look good! Looking forward to seeing some game pictures.

I tried 80 x 40 and 80 x 50 (with the latter the last 10mm of depth was for a unit details strip) I discounted both as too big for my usual 1800 x 1200 table top.
