Re: Kropotov Horse Grenadiers.

I presume "Tacitus" isn't speaking about every book I've ever written, but the two Osprey booklets on The Russian Army of Peter the Great, and possibly Poltava, 1709. I've written over 50 Ospreys, and about 20 other books. Tacitus' comments make it sounds as if he's read them all, and doesn't like a...

Re: Borodino weekend

Well, what a great weekend of gaming. Well done Barry for organising it, and to all the participants for making the weekend so memorable. The tables were fairly groaning under the weight of all that lead... My highlight was our battle for "the fleche-pots", all but one of which were held by the Russ...

Re: From Pike to Shot

Dave,

I have my own dog-eared copy somewhere, so certainly didn't borrow yours. In fact, why don't you hassle the Brigadier, as a reprint is long overdue!

Re: NOVEMBER 19th/20th 2011 Vietnam

G'Day Peter / Colin, Just to remind you, I'm goin' "Digger" for this one. I'll be bringing along a platoon-sized force of Australians - about 40 assorted figures - three infantry squads, a support squad and a small headquarters. Actually, they're painted up as Gurkhas - I suppose we better treat the...

Chaps, As Barry said, I'm afraid I'll be stuck up in Orkney. I'm unable to come south that weekend, and to make matters worse I sprained my ankle, and so I'm hobbling around with a crutch and a bandage, looking like Long John Silver with gout - or should that be Wide John Silver? However, Colin has ...

Thanks for that, Dave. I noticed the sculpture is wearing your favourite "weekend away with the lads" stockings. Suspicious. Have you got the cap as well? For the record, I have a platoon of Irish Guards in half tracks and carriers, and two brace of Shermans plus a Humber a/c. Oh, and Mr. Caine in h...

Barry, old bean, No really - that was a "B". That's good, as my own SYW rules only got a "C-"! As I said, R2E worked well. As I also said, I still remain loyal to GdeB , which I prefer. Rules are a personal preference. It isn't important that everyone prefers your rules to all others, or even that t...

Chaps, I don't see what you lot are moaning about. I never played these rules before, and I had no problem with fighting in built-up areas, even though they seemed to span the tabletop with their 9-inch "force fields". This might, of course, have something to do with my troops never managing to get ...

Bob,

I'll happily paint up some Frenchies for you, but like Peter my heart is more with the Brits or Russkies than the Frogs. We can chat about what you need when we next meet. Oh, and good luck with the flitting!

Angus
