With the continued growth in popularity of AVBCW gaming, plus the amount of people doing it in 10mm, it was definitely worth getting some more figures done for it, so we picked up these beauties from Snafu at the York show last weekend!  I'm sure he's got more planned, but I'll let him comment on what's coming next!

First off, we've got some 'Jolly Good Chaps', with shotgun/hunting rifle/rifle:



Next up is a set of British Bobby's, all with rifles:



And bringing up the rear is an excellent set of Partizans, with will serve quite happily as French Resistance fighters as well.  These come with SMG or rifles:

POlice would be more correct with shotguns, often rather short, Liverpool City used one with a 20" barrel, which would be prohibited today. An interestesting figure would be 6th former from public school with rifle, there were more weapons in HMC schools than in ploice hands in the 30's.

These fill a few VBCW gaps nicely! I really need to start on the last batch I bought though!  Grin

Excuse me for my ignorance, I have seen some pics and reports of A very British Civil War in blogs, and I am quite interested in but my question is:

Is it a ruleset? if so, where I can find it,

Is it inspirated in a book, comic, TV production or something?

Can you resume the plot in two lines (the date, the armies confronted and so on)?

thank you in advance

Other people will be able to tell you better than me, but it was started by Solway I believe: http://solwaycraftsandminiatures.webs.com/

There's more info on several websites, and if you do a search on the Forum here, it throws up a lot of threads.

The period can be gamed using a wide range of rules. I use BKC but others use RoE etc. A set of rules has recently been produced by the creators of the AVBCW period, Solway Games. Details can be found on the following links which should answer most of your questions.

http://solwaycraftsandminiatures.webs.com/
http://gwargamesp.18.forumer.com/index.php?showforum=4

A couple of AARs can be found below which should give you an idea of games in 10mm.

Hope this helps?

In a nutshell it is a fictional British civil war set in the late 1930s. There are assorted sides with different continental support. A lot of the fun seems to be that people are creating local forces based on their own area.

No its not.
You can use whatever rules and figures you feel like.

Want small groups of protagonists squabbling over a local village?  Legends of the Old West and 10-12 figures will do.
Want large scale warfare with tank divisions, armoured trains and swarms of militia?  Blitzkrieg Commander with as many Pendraken figs as you can muster!

However, Solway have been working on an 'official' ruleset (Brigade '38) which i believe they use for their 'big games'.  http://solwaycraftsandminiatures.webs.com/brigadier38vbcw.htm

Not really.

Here's the concept http://gwargamesp.18.forumer.com/index.php?showtopic=1689

In two lines?  Tricky!

In 1938, Edward VIII marries Mrs Simpson ('that woman'), refuses to abdicate and with the collapse of support from the British government installs his friend Oswald Moseley and his British Union of Fascists as the new British Government.

Pretty much everyone else, from the Communists and Socialist coal miners, to the Anglican Church sees this as jolly bad form and a very British civil war ensues, where the battles a fought in the spirit of fair play more usually seen on the cricket pitch.

very pleased to see these and that Pendraken are committing to the 'VBCW' as a period - lots more please - especially  1930's technicals!
