Re: 1814 skirmish campaign

I suspect we may fall way behind you Dropbear, well we'll see how we go! One other thing we considered as we will be playing Naps regularly but not always SDS so we may play larger battles in place of a skirmish :D ...I think our first game will be Monday week... That depends... I might have to pla...

Re: Doktor Von Hades Personal Guard - Clockwork Apes!

That is awesome!

I was tempted to get some of Eureka's flying monkeys, but the clockwork ones are so much better!

Re: Rebel Cavalry, Artillery and Command.

They have come up a treat. I don't know if it is a trick of the light or your excellent painting skills, but some of the eyes on the horses look fairly realistic.

Re: 1814 skirmish campaign

This is an AAR for my first game of the campaign: British Riflemen vs French Dragoons (dismounted). Please be warned - the miniatures in the photos are unpainted, as I wanted to get the campaign started rather than wait until everything was painted up. At the moment I am finding it hard to paint as ...

Re: 1814 skirmish campaign

The map is rather hard to read the detail on the image above, and I have a small laminated A4 copy for marking that is just as hard to read. For the players I have a large map printed out to make it easy on the eyes. This is a map from a web site indicating the actions of the actual 1814 campaign: h...

Re: Mead?

I gave some honey to a 'mate' to make some mead years ago, with the understanding I would get some mead in return (I have bee hives on my property to put that in to context).

The bugger took the honey and I never saw him again.

1814 skirmish campaign

One of my projects for 2017 is to play a Napoleonic skirmish campaign using AB Figures I have purchased from Eureka Miniatures. The campaign is set in 1814 and I am using the maps I downloaded from the murat.ca web site. At the moment it looks like the web site is not working, so I was lucky to get ...

Re: 1812 Austrian vs Russian Skirmish - Song of Drums & Shakos Rules

great to see an Napoleonic skirmish game - there should be more of them.

I tried "Songs of Drums & shakos" but it didn't really seem to work for me.

I have a copy of "Chosen Man" and will probably use it for ideas rather than a set of rules.

Not a lot of the first Anglo-boer war is seen, and I didn't realise the Boers had flags/banners, which is really interesting.

They look good enough that you wouldn't need to apply the "3ft" rule. Very nicely done.
