Re: Camera

I've got an old Powershot G10. It's a good little camera, second hand ones seem to go in the £50-100 range. Mine was a freebie from my father-in-law who's in the RPS , so if it's good enough for him it's definitely good enough for me! https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/512oLlcl35L._SR500,500_.jpg O...

Re: What`s everyone working on?

Plenty of 20th century gaming going on for me, but not a lot of painting. I did recently do some more WW2 partisans and a couple of bits and pieces for the rear-echelon Germans to face them. The guys with the MG-30(t)s were fun to convert, basically Germans with Bren guns. I also did some lists and ...

Re: M44 D-Day Landings

I've been very slow to get these online, but here are a few snaps I took during the game. I was given the US Airborne sector out west on the Cotentin Peninsular, supporting the adjacent landings at Utah. Due to the sheer length of the table I wasn't able to keep a close eye on how things were develo...

Re: Wargamers and Tactics/strategy.

width of the beaten zone given as 2 mills which at 600m is about 1m and about 2m at 1500m 2 mils would be 3m at 1500m. Bear in mind that unless you're talking a single gun firing a fixed line your beaten zone will be substantially bigger. A pair of guns traversing back and forth can suppress an are...

Re: Wargamers and Tactics/strategy.

So I guess the first question is : do your rules even allow your machine guns FPL fire as its called in moderns or as far as I can understand it in the past (and present) Graving", "Grazing Fire" or Fixed line fire. Obviously our rules Have it and Phil Barkers 1925 to 1950 ruels has it. Despite som...

Re: Wargamers and Tactics/strategy.

It has occurred to me that war gamer's, particularly those not in competition never talk about tactics and their implementation in there chosen rule set. mainly the talk is about models not how they behave on the table top. Why is that? I'm not sure I agree with that. I'm on forums and FB groups wh...

How did you resolve the lack of match up in gun and gunner?
I just cut the mounting post shorter! The figure comes with the right arm cast with the body and a separate left arm, so just moving the arms wouldn't have been easy. I like easy.

Militia Miniatures Humvee

One I picked up from the recent Kickstarter that Leon was pimping on this forum: https://i2.wp.com/tinyhordes.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Humvee-1-300x225.jpg It's a resin and metal kit, good detail and well cast. The only slight issue I had with it was that the gunner's hands didn't match up wel...

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

I think it's good to at least try other rule sets. I disagree that modern sets have lost the "fun" element, I think there is vastly more variety available in rulesets these days, you can choose from a smorgasbord of play styles and levels of crunchiness. Which is great, although there is the problem...

Re: Over & out

In another thread, you suggested a £10 fee for access to fifty articles. I don't think you realise how hard it is to get fifty articles - it's the equivalent of five Journals (issues 91 to 95 had a total of 51 articles). The Society is sitting on a back catalogue of 95 Journals though right? Gettin...
