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...

Re: Militia Miniatures - The Bad Guys! Kickstarter live now!

Hi Leon, I backed this KS and picked up some of the "Republican Guard", robots and a humvee. Thought you might like to see them painted. I've painted the guardsmen up not as infantry, but as paramilitary police: https://tinyhordes.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Police-paramilitary-768x576.jpg They'r...

Re: air support

I think it definitely can add something to a scenario. For example: a Cold War Gone Hot delaying action. Having fast air screaming in to lay minefields for your outnumbered defenders, or conduct emergency airstrikes to drop bridges before the Soviet armour get across them? Airborne OPs? Desant/Air C...

Re: A difficult Question - Hedges

15% seems rather high. That would mean you'd expect a company of tanks to be combat ineffective after crossing half a dozen hedges. Tanks are designed specifically to eat hedges and ditches for breakfast. I think they should reduce the rate of movement and allow a defender an opportunistic shot at t...
