DUG in Markers

We have need to mark dug in positions, as our games get more "interesing" the need to mark positions abandoned and occupied better, simpoly remembering is beginning to spoil tha game and slow it down, a criminal offence if ever there was one in wargaming.

Re: What`s everyone working on?

I realise I need to print and paint lots more Milan teams in 1/144 and then the worst bit paint them. The BAR had a platoon of 24 fire in g posts to a battalion. That is a lot of Milan even at company level. The only saving grace is with realistic scale figures the detail is minimal.

A Boat , A Boat my Kingdom for a Boat!

Somtimes being a gamer you just need something to represent a boat. Anything is better than just a flat shaped piece of card, but sometimes needs must. However all is saved! In just browsing the net tired, bored, because I'm too tired and have got a headache you stray into strange places. This was a...
