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.

Cheers!

Longstreet AAR - The Battle of Cow Run

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. They successfully pushed the Rebs back and reduced their artillery with massed musketry. The Rebs weren't hel...

Great painting, nice figures. Well done.

I’m thinking a mix of 30x30 and 60x30 bases on Sabots? I went with 20x20 and 40x20 bases myself. :)

I’ve never heard good reviews from gamers I meet about FOW and I often see rules sets cheap at the bring and buy tables so I think that speaks volumes.
