Re: Does Paintaing have nothing to do with Wargameing?

Don't get me wrong If you want to paint figures I would be the last one to complain. What I dislike is when painters moan that folk have not painted but only coloured there figuers. The point is that being indestinguishable at wargames ranges there should be no figure "snobbery" when gaming and begg...

Re: Does Paintaing have nothing to do with Wargameing?

As an aside Richard Richards last nicely painted models look fine in the Photos. However the figures are shown well over life size I estimate the actual photo figure is nearly 50mm tall. To be realistic for a wargame You would need to view the screen from about 6 ft away. Therefore the paint job is ...

Does Paintaing have nothing to do with Wargameing?

I have already begun to be suspicious of many of the "traditions" in wargaming that have survived against all logic. Today is another such, day but one that surprised me. I needed some Carl Gustav's for my 1/72 German army. These were only available in generic form from S&A models. I was in a rush, ...

Re: painted figures

No way. I have realised that on the table even a 1/72 Nato Green figure dry brushed is indestinguishable from a better painted figure at 4 ft. The weapons are often very similar in coloure to the Uniform and any sublty in shade is totral lost at 4 ft. Ergo anything excessively painted had nothing to...

Re: Cold War Scenario booklet anyone?

Providing a map without a scale is like providing a graph without the axis labels, a schoolboy/schoolgirl (to be PC) error. Surely that is a perfectly logical and constructive criticism. A fully admit clairvoyance is not one my skills.

Re: Cold War Scenario booklet anyone?

I feel that you lack some self control. I made the comments as I would not like folk to think that they were buying a usable set of scenarios. I have in the past bought skirmish games scenarios and they have been much more complete and usable without effort. Your loss of self control is disappointin...

Re: Cold War Scenario booklet anyone?

Lost me on the first Page, the map. Really little thought has gone into this booklet. 1) No scale to the map. Pointless without it. 2) No definition of road width or whether they have hedges walls and or ditches all of which are critical and would effect the balance of the scenario. 2) No definition...

Re: Cold War Scenario booklet anyone?

Not sure on this one, not enough detail to tempt me, while 12 scenarios is fine the fact that some will be too big for my sort of game makes it a poor buy. I would have liked a decent free one to see if the guy has what it takes and is not just a die rolling freak.
