Re: Campaign Rules

I recently wrote a very simple campaign/battle generator set of rules for my BlackPowder AWI. Basically movement"nodes" drawn on a piece of foamcore.Each force is broken down into brigades,and represented by a pin on the map.The actual composition on the brigade is listed on a separate piece of pape...

Yet another basing question

Will these rules be flexible in their basing as say,Black Powder,where really only the formation depiction is the important bit,with the Formation foot print and number of figures not really all that important?

Seriously though I am not sure the scale set for these rules is small enough for the War of 1812.
But its ok for Border Reivers to have a list in FoGR.

French Wars of Religion

A quick question for those in the know- would I need more than 20 stands of Reiters and 12 stands of mtd Arquebusiers for both the Huegenot and Catholic armies combined? I will be ordering some figures soon and need to figure out if I need to oder more of these two or not. I have been building up th...

S M Sterling's "Change" series

Has anybody thought of gaming this series? It really is fantasy "lite",in that there arent any monster/magic types,but just straightforward Medievil troops with a little "pre-change" tech thrown in,such as one handed ratcheting crossbows,using the mechanisms from car jacks. There are really some gre...

I cant see putting a wagon model on that shallow of a base. I would go with whatever you needed,as I cant see where a little extra depth would impact play in any way.

These are nice figures,but I just cant get used to that double crest. I think f I were to pursue any of these,that double crest would go by the way of an Exacto knife. Its just too "cartoony" for me.

I am self taught as well. The way I do my fleshtones, I use 2 washes. The first is a very heavy wash on the first layer of fleshtone,and then 2 highlights. The woad would then come as the next step. My final step would be a glaze of a very,very thin(almost translucent) wash. I find that this last st...

The way I understand it,bronze barrels were cast and then bored out,which means they were more decorative barrels. Iron barrels were forged,thus more plain in appearance,and were more prone to bursting due to that fact.

Flank charge question

We had this situation come up last night- A group of 4 LH charged the flank of a formed bow unit.The bow's 2 flank stands turned to face,and defeated the LH in melee. The light horse broke off.Do the 2 stands of the formed bow continue to face to the flank,or do they reform to the front during their...
