Re: Anzac Cup, Canberra 21-22 April

We only had four players for Napoleon at War - and to be honest, I'm at a loss of how to get players out of the garage and to a convention. We are planning it for Wintercon, but the response has been pretty underwhelming; to the point I'm not investing any more in it - and can't even get players to ...

Battlegroup

Anyone playing, or interested in Battlegroup?

I've picked up the rules, market garden supplement and about to rebase my FOW troops - I'll be playing in 15mm with a couple of others locally.

Re: Anzac Cup, Canberra 21-22 April

It's been and gone and we had a blast. Very well organised by the Australian Defence Force Wargaming Assn.

Will post some pics of the action over next couple of days.

Re: New to the Rum Corps

Folks, As mentioned, I'm new to this forum - but is there anything going on here? I'm looking for some signs of life beyond the 1 or 2 regular posters. Is wargaming just not the flavour of the month? I'm not an army hoarder by nature, nor do I maintain multiple logons to various forums. If this is f...

Hi Folks, For anyone near the capital - we have our next gaming day on 18 March at Jolt Games in Mitchell from 10am. This group is the former (and very strong until V4 showed up) Flames of War group. The concept is bring the games you want to play, organise some games and play. In essence, its a gre...

Thanks mate. I'm heading up to Sydney for a 1RAR reunion for Somalia - 25 years, and then we're off to Townsville in May for Coral Week and changing of the colours and another reunion.

I'm interested to see how FoW is doing around the traps. Here in Canberra, its pretty much collapsed as a tournament game in our regular group - most players are equally divided between V3 and V4. Most people I've spoken to are divesting their collection, including me. Its not the game I came to lov...

Re: CanCon 2018 Any Feedback, Thoghts or Pictures?

A few comments around Cancon as a Canberra local. To put in context this year I opted to play two days of the Team Yankee 6mm Jutland Peninsular Campaign, and one day of Napoleon at War 18mm. We attracted more players to 6mm Team Yankee than the Battlefront version of the game at 15mm (probably much...

New to the Rum Corps

Hi Folks, I've just joined this forum. By way of brief introduction, I got into wargaming as a teenager - but suspended that when I joined the Army (infantry serving in 1RAR, 5/7RAR and 6RAR) and got back into it once discharged in Canberra. I've been playing (almost exclusively) Flames of War - but...
