28mm German Catholics in Derby - 2015

Post by madaxeman » Fri Oct 30, 2015 6:17 pm

Marvel at the size of their pikestaffs, and be amazed at the innovative use of crewmen along with their battalion gunnes as the Catholic TYW Germans attempt to mask their true emissions and bravely soldier on against all comers, real and imaginary, in a series of 4 28mm FoGR battle reports from the 2015 Derby Convention.

Excellent! Sad as it may sound, I really look forward to these.

Is that a plastic pretzel, or has she just broken the steering wheel off her VW after her mind was eaten away by the emissions?

Great reports Tim but I did think our game was closer, although I accept I lost big, with my guns taking a base of first.

19 : 5 in the results as published. Given it was my only win all weekend, it also qualifies as my biggest as well !

The nicest ones are Battle Flag - http://www.battle-flag.com/thirty-years ... flags.html - really high quality print, so much so that you don't even begrudge paying for them as its way beyond what your own printer could manage

The fabric ones are from someone I found on eBay - they do sheets of ECW and other fabric flags that are self adhesive, but they are a bit of a large weave so are a bit unsubtle
