A recent GAME

Here are a few pics of our last 1/144 game. What is great about 1/144 is you get the real impression of how big the world is. This is just a 6 by 4 board with special forces attacking from a number of directions a small force protecting a radio relay vehicle Kallistra Hex with Angel Hair bases for t...

Re: What are you working on??

1) The final draft of Manoeuvre Group Issue 2. It was supposed to be out for the 10 year anniversary in May but as usual, running late. 2) Inevitablely markers die/get lost and my 1/172 suppression and reaction markers from the dawn of time (well 10 years ago) have become too few even for my now red...

Re: VBCW anyone?

Gentlemen we are British , such talk as using the Army is improper. Under the Sourthend accord ratified at Brennand Farm the only weapons allowde are Baloons on sticks, the use of Brollies, Black Puddingsand riding Crops and the use of Narcottics such as Toad in the hole, and Semolina are specificly...

Clarkeair CA-1 Air portable Buldozer

I have just returned from a trip to the Imperial War Museum among others. To be honest the IWM was dreadful, no real credible thread to anything, poorly signed and devoid of any real information. No trecommended except for the WWI exhibition and the eclectic but interesting VC presentations and even...

Recycleing - Scenarios

This weeks simple game was an attack by Parras on a radio Relay station. The map was idendile no need to change and it was was a quick conversion of the forces from SGII to Maneouvre Group and play. I noted this was written in 2002. Interestingly one of the original play testers for Maneouvre Group ...

So Desparate

So tired and fed up I had to resort to painting. https://forum.sotcw.co.uk/posting.php?mode=post&f=11# I could think of nothing I could do being tired. So not wanting to waste my time I resorted to the worst bit of war gaming for me, Painting. Still I have 6 out of the 10 T72 B's I need mostly paint...

About £300 gets you a printer, software etc. and a kg of Plastic. That's probably less than some armies and enough plastic to print one. I get the don't want to do it bit but the cost is now only that of an army and well less than what we have spent on terrain.

Re: FV102 and FV438 Drawings for 3D Models

Yup it did the trick, thanks, I now have a 1/144 FV438t and a Sparton for the Brits. I did lose a few stripes when I noted that only one missile should be up at a time. To be fair this is not well documented but Alex did the change. I have even seen bigger models that have got that wrong.
