Re: Rating Shows

I definitely have a hate for 5A. A friend and I once were asked to mark the games at a Derby Worlds. We made up a marking scheme between us and stuck rigidly to it. I believe there were some naysayers. However poorly fronted i.e 5A turning up to a game asking questions and being pointed to the paper...

How do you rate a show? It seemes Hammehead 2020 caused some disagreement. Personaly I think its a show that is leading the way. Some older shows to us seem to be fadeing with the emphasis on the older players and minatures being the be all and end all. Hammerhead is diffrent, the emphasis of both t...

Re: new airfix sherman

Wow 1/72 is getting expensive just for a war games model. Soon it will be cheaper to home print your own even at this scale. Plus a lot of that detail looks flimsy for war gaming. Great for modellers not so good if you want to play with it. Perhaps hard core modellers and War gamers will have to sta...

Re: Troop Quality

Looks like todays rules are close enough to get a representation of the behaviour ...
