Song of Drums & Shakos AAR - The Supply Train

We trotted out the Song of Drums and Shakos rules and my Perry 1/56 figures for some more Napoleonic skirmishing! A small British supply train escorted by a column led by an Austrian staff Officer and marching in very smart order is ambushed by a force of sneering Frenchies who were not only chain s...

Re: Tas 1812's Painted Lead Pile

Hey Tas nice work on your Napoleonics!

Your basing them mainly singly is that for versatility? What sort of gaming are you planning with them?

Re: Italian defence WWII 28mm

Great looking game!

Iron Cross rules I have them but not tried them, do you have a list of updates you've used and why?

Thanks!

Too many projects, the bane of most Wargamers lives...good on you cutting back I never seem too...

Looking forward to seeing your Blucher project progress...when I'm back from my overseas trip I have a 'Blucher battle of Piave' game lined up to play... :D

Re: My 10mm World War II Project

Nice work Andy. I see you've narrowed your field of WW2 action too, a good thing!

What size bases are your infantry on? I've gone with round bases myself.

I think basing the vehicles is good to cancel out the extra height the foot figures get with their bases.

Re: Musket Action! AWI

Good AAR Tas!
Nice figures, I see two unpainted Perry farm houses there, I have one myself it's a pretty versatile building.
Bolt Action for AWI I've near heard ofthat before. I'm planning on trying Maurice for some AWI action latter this year...

Ironclad Miniatures VSF British Artillery Crew

Before I go on holidays I finished painting up some Ironclad VSF British Artillery Figures that have been on my painting table for quite a while. I like any figure in a spiked helmet and these don't disappoint! https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-fWcAnShcIYY/Wr4oJPpL7rI/AAAAAAAABdE/BuNGuvi1oUg5BF58xqdcW9E232...

10mm Stalingrad if done well that’ll be very impressive, that scale will let you get a good chunck of built up area. Looking forward to seeing that!

Hi Cyrus,

Great figures and nice building in the background...being mega picky if it was mine I’d have a few more ripples in the standard.

Re: My 10mm World War II Project

Hey Womble67,

Your last batch of vehicles look very good.

With this project what specific period(s)/theatre(s) are you looking at, the latest batch feature 1940/41 vehicles camo but the earlier post and the maintenance trucks are decidedly later?

Cheers!

Re: Longstreet AAR - The Battle of Cow Run

Hey DB,

Yep two decks of action cards are required to play, the only good thing there is the action deck is available free to download from the Honour website (you still need to print them though). Still all worth it from my point of view.

We played Game 2 of our 4 Player Longstreet Campaign. The CSA chose to defend and the Union troops attacked and did quite well refusing their left and pushing forward their centre and right.
