Re: 3D Printing

No special preparation for painting. Pretty ease to do, and agree - so many options downloadable now.

3D Printing

I'm pretty happy with these...

All up about three hours to print, free CAD model downloaded, and about $3 worth of materials.

Re: FOW V3 Re-Booted!

Mathew, A lot of rules changes that had a significant impact on the game. I'll go into one example and how it impacted... You're playing a Soviet Rifle Bn. Each company in your battalion has [say] 18 stands - in V3 once you fell below 50% strength you'd role a morale check. In V4 I would have to kno...

FOW V3 Re-Booted!

A few of us been having a chat and we've taken the step of re-booting V3! Here in Canberra, FOW play as a group has collapsed with the introduction of V4. It's been well over six months since anyone in our group has gathered for an event. To that end we have the following events in planning starting...

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.

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...
