I have been having a read through some books and even the Anglo Saxon Chronicale about this, and to me anyway allI could find was that they rode to battle and dismounted to fight, then once an enemy was beaten the would mount up again to pursue them, this obviously doesnt mean that they didnt use ho...

Gary Gygax passes away

I know this is nothing to do with FOG, but its sad news all the same. Personally I dont think gaming/rpg's/ Computer games even wargaming would be quite the same if he hadnt come along and did what he did

You'll be missed, and thanks for all the fun

To be honest I never really gamed in 28mm, mainly due to cost and mainly that I think it looks silly in the scale of battles your trying to refight I've always prefered 6 or 10mm, and only contemplate 20mm due to price, and supplier options in Australia
