Re: 17th/18th MARCH 2012 - WILD WEST

Thanks Colin and Peter for organizing another very enjoyable weekends gaming. The individual games on Saturday were fast and furious and the massive town for Sundays game extremely impressive with some fantastic buildings. Not sure about all the skullduggery and backstabbing in the Sunday game as I ...

Re: NOVEMBER 19th/20th 2011 Vietnam

Interesting that while listing the supposed "atrocities" Barry failed to mention his own unprovoked levelling of peaceful Vietnamese villages! By the time Barry triggered my first ambush on the highway and actually engaged the enemy he probably should have been firing at a reduced rate due to his o...

Re: NOVEMBER 19th/20th 2011 Vietnam

Great weekend as usual , well done to everyone involved in putting on such an extravaganza. The small tables on Saturday and the big one on Sunday looked fantastic and were a joy to play on. Scenarios were well thought out and produced interesting and fun games as a result. I thought all the America...

Re: Pike 'rot' - fact or fiction?

Adrian, Finding myself with far too much spare time on my hands last weekend I decided to put some serious thought into your question and came up with the following : 1. 15th/16th Century Landsknecht formations contained a Rottmeister. 2. Could not think of any other valid reason for it's demise ove...

Re: Thread Hijacking - is it a crime?

Barry, I am thinking about building up a force to represent The Grand Old Duke of Yorks' 10,000 men. Using BLB2 would they, a. Get a move bonus for marching up the hill as well as down b. Have to take a moral test if they are neither up nor down c. Would they have to reform at the top before they ca...

Re: Pike 'rot' - fact or fiction?

Adrian, Pretty sure I read somewhere that Pike rot is a very nasty fungal infection that affects their gills. Also read somewhere ( possibly in one of Angus' Ospreys ) that the Irish troops fighting in Scotland under Montrose had a habit of loping off a couple of feet from the pointy end of their pi...

Re: The Alma - June 18th - 19th 2011

Dave, Certainly the Light Brigade trotted forward, infact the 17th Lancers put a glorious charge into the rear of some Russkie cavalry . Unfortunately their enthusiasm got the better of them and in true British Cavalry style they chased them clean off the table and were never seen again. As for the ...

Re: The Alma - June 18th - 19th 2011

Many thanks Bob for setting up a great game and it was a real treat to see and play with such a fantastic collection and like Dave I can feel a distraction from my current projects coming on. Now to all this Russian and Turkish propaganda nonsense. While our Allies on the right flank enjoyed a strol...

Even Colin might struggle to incorporate them into his games, mind you if you converted them into Zombie Nazi Bunny Girls I think we both know who might be interested :wink:
