Re: Figure preparation HELL

Ditto on the black primer (Krylon, etc). Need warm temps. (55 degrees F+) Just make sure you have ventilation!

I have never washed a metal miniature before priming, just remove flash, drill hands and spray.

Re: Cold Wars 2013 March 7-10

I am one of those "exhausted" players! I drifted away from FOG AM because of the long games, sometimes without a decisive result. I have been reading with interest about the mini-comps with 400-500 pts, I would definately be in favor of trying those. I also like the idea of set terrain, which may co...

Re: Basing Light Cavalry

If you think your light units might break next turn, put them in skirmish order so no-one has to test when they see them break! Only a Dutch-Belgian commander could think of that one! A commander of a real man's army never thinks any of his troops might break next turn! :P Ah, but the D-B lights on...

Re: 800 or 1000

One additional point for tournaments would be the time factor. FOG-AM or FOG-R 800 pt games are allocated 3 to 3 1/2 hours for each round. What would be a realistic time frame for a 1000pt FOG-N game? I think this is very evolutionary. Right now a lot of people are learning mechanisms. Good point. ...

Re: Austrian orbat Bohemian campaign 1809

Wow - what a great resource - and thanks to Mr. Nafziger for donating his collection. I can remember going to conventions and buying oob from him years ago. I didn't see that oob either. Looks like there are 1809 oob scattered throughout the document through. I did get the search function to work - ...

Re: Attachment confusion

ooh nothing like starting massive controversy with a simple question .... Actually as I see it, and this is how I actually interpret it all dreaming aside, if you have one large cuirassier unit you get the mandatory artillery for the division. If you have 2 small units one of them can have an artil...

Re: Attachment confusion

I respectfully have to disagree. You have layed out one possible interpretation of the word "additionally" but not the only, or the most obvious one. Another, equally valid interpretation is to view the word as imposing an additional restriction on the assignment of the 1 (maximum) artillery attach...

Re: QRS: Update??

It was mentioned a while back that a revised QRS was being worked on or would be worked on. Any update on this? There's an "unoffical" QRS available on the FOGN Yahoogroup - just uploaded last week. It is multiple pages but well done and most importantly -readable for those of us with "older" eyes!...

Re: poor Nassauers 1815

Ok - coming full circle to the OP. The DB line infantry in 1815 certainly had training and even some experience, since some units were formed in 1814 for the revolt. What is unlikely is that they had any experience manuvering at a higher level such as the French Grande Armee of 1805-07.

Re: What faction(s) to collect?

Plastics in 15mm? Unfortunatly not as yet, though I do hear some are planned. AB are very nice (the best actually IMHO) but also quite expensive. I'd suggest looking at some other 18mm (ABs are actually 18mm scale but 15 and 18mm armies can and do play against each other), such as BLUE MOON miniatu...

Re: poor Nassauers 1815

Thanks - I got the "light" reference from "Wellington's Dutch Allies 1815" by Ronald Pawley (Osprey). Not exactly a primary source. If I am correct they did detach some companies to skirmish in the Hougemont woods at Waterloo. Of course this may just be the light companies and doesn't mean that the ...
