Re: Holding the Ring scenario

In fact, now I think about it, I found this scenario probably the most annoying and unbalanced of the whole lot requiring an INCREDIBLE degree of luck (e.g your ATG not getting taken out too quickly and you arty barrages actually hitting something rather an every square but that which holds an enemy...

Re: Holding the Ring scenario

Yep, the scenario is incredibly tough. Shoot n scoot to the extreme otherwise there's no chance. The Germans also seem to have a greater degree of luck in terms of their accuracy and long range kill ability than the Allies who at times can't seem to be able to hit the side of a barn door. Not sure y...

OK game but some tactical issues

Mostly I'm a tabletop gamer and rarely bother with computer games unless they are games like Combat Mission. However, for some light, casual entertainment I thought I'd give BA a try. Mostly I think it's quite good, albeit quite pricey for an iPad game, and albeit for the price I would prefer a litt...

Moving 25lb gun

Is it possible? Just playing one of the later desert missions where you can buy two. On their own they can't be moved so I bought two Matadors thinking they'd act as tows for them. Seems not. Will go try Universal Carrier as there prime mover as such. But, can they be moved at all? Expensive units i...

Nope. Missed it. Thanks anyway. Will pass it on. Priced in dollars and a few page clicks back. Maybe it's my settings. Anyway, also not my problem! Odd that Caliver are "scouring the world". Not sure who may be needlessly paying high prices. Not good for the system maybe, again, not my problem.

In all honesty it's not for me so I'll be putting limited effort into this. More interested if the stock situation is likely to improve (easier for new players to access the game) or is that it until whatever (e.g. V2 :))?

FoG - Out of Stock??

Friend of mine recently asked where he could get FoG from. I told him Amazon but he said it's OOS. Tried Caliver but they have it at £32.50 with claims that they are "scouring the World for stock" as it is OOP at publishers? Is a new print run expected soon or is it suspended now until v2 (which I d...

Litko do do a new 0.8mm thick ply base. Rendera do a variety of sizes including many 40mm wide ones, just none with 15mm depth.

Rendera (plastic) bases for FoG??

Anyone used these at all?? Must admit I've gone off MDF a little due to the height and was pointed in the direction of this company: http://www.renedra.co.uk/webstore.html Think i will be giving these ago for my next 4 FoG armies but with one reservation. I don't see 40 x 15mm listed as a base size ...

Good point!! I'm not that keen on being tied to a BG of Ghilmans also as any Kn I have I'd like adorned with a cross or suitable Jerusalem heraldry (maybe even Ridley Scott powder blue!!).

Presume this is the W&N Galeria stuff at about £10 a litre? Had contemplated trying this but seen mixed reviews dependant on where you look. Always been a bit dubious as I'd hate the stuff to come off!

Later Crusader allies - Bedouin or Syrian?

Looking to start my LC army soon. Been reading through the various threads and conclude that it would be a good idea to get some LH into the army via an ally. So, for those playing, or playing against, an LC army what tends to be the more effective, bow or lancer LH? Clearly Bedouin gives the capabi...
