Yes, but what they donít tell you is that it was a North Korean test site.

Welcome.

Mid 50s father of 3 who has been gaming on and off since the heyday of Airfix and when there were local libraries with Featherstone books to lend.
Good man.

I also work on home-brewed game rules, most of which are at an "In progress" stage. Titles include:
Excellent.

I'm a big fan of 6mm, through eyesight issues mean I've probably made my last 6mm purchase - I hope 10mm will fill the gap.
10mm is the scale of the future. 15mm is dead, and doesn't know it yet.

I should have mentioned this earlier - F&F do a regimental Mexican American variant. You may find weapons listings etc on the playsheet which are more pertinent to the Carlist war, as the end of one and beginning of the other is only separated by 7 years, and much of the Mexican armament was Napoleonic.

Fred, in cases like that, i would suggest agreeing on a "minimum gap" before the game.

Say for example half the width of a suare. guessing a square is about 10 cm, make that a 5 cm gap. Keep a spare 5cm wide base handy. When in doubt, see if the base can fit through the gap you are shooting through. If you can fit it, you can ake the shot, if you can't the shot is impossible.

This is off course after you checked for things blocking line of sight as usual. only for those 'when in doubt' moments.


And why half the width of the square? if you are shooting at a regiment of 600 men, i think you have a viable target if you can see half of it. solid cannonballs just needed to hit a point of a regiment/battalion/troop/whatever.

Welcome Steve; Iím sure youíll find something to tickle your fancy in 10mm. I too have recently moved into a bit of Skirmish, namely Ronin and Saga: Aetius and Arthur. I also play Dux Bellorum and Dux Britanniarum. Game in 2mm, 3mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 15mm and 28mm, but no fantasy apart from HOTT - well I have to use that Warmaster dragon somewhere.

A bit late posting here since I've been active on the forum for about a fortnight.

Mid 50s father of 3 who has been gaming on and off since the heyday of Airfix and when there were local libraries with Featherstone books to lend.

During the last few years I've developed a focus on specifics, with a view to "projects" (There must be a better term for this) that actually result in games.
This has seen a shift from big battle to a greater number of skirmish style games.
I still enjoy the occasional big game.

Current stuff:
   6mm Napoleonics using Black Powder - Generally my Russian Division against my pal's Austrians, or Franco-Bavarian force.
   Song of Blades and Heroes - various settings.
   Song of Drums and Shakos - an outlet for some long-serving 20mm plastics.
   Dux Bellorum - Lots of 6mm forces assembled for that "Great all Britain conquest campaign" that I never find time for.
   Congo - I had no interest in Colonials or Darkest Africa until I met these rules - Now one of my top 3 game systems.

I also work on home-brewed game rules, most of which are at an "In progress" stage. Titles include:
  Blatterball - a game of football administration and corruption.
  Flat Earth Explorer (Don't fall off the edge) - Steampunk airships in a dash to discover the world.
  An Mein Volk - A grid based Napoleonic game for the big battles of 1813-14.
  OrkLife - RolePlaying meets Tribe Building meets Survival - you begin te game as an orc youth.

A few loose ends, which will probably be tied together under the OrkLife umbrella.
  Tribal - Tribal warfare rules, looks great - I'm looking to adapt them to an Orc setting.
  Palaeo Diet - Stone age hunter gathering "Eat or be eaten" - Again I'm looking to implement an Orc themed setting.


As you'll see, Orcs are my go-to proxy where a generic forces is required.


Other Matters:

Scales:

I'm a big fan of 6mm, through eyesight issues mean I've probably made my last 6mm purchase - I hope 10mm will fill the gap.

15mm for skirmish and mass-battle (I don't have a 12' x 8' table).
Some older 20mm plastics.
about 60 28mm's colledted for Frostgrave, SOBAH and the like.

Incredible, and a lot less Crimson among the regulars that I'd expected.

Wotcha from either the other end of the country of the other side of the world depending on where you are.
