I can wholeheartedly recommend the Twilight of Divine Right rules. I've tinkered with various rule sets for ECW and TYW, including my own for decades and I think these have the best combination of playability and flavour I've found (so far!).

I bought them about nine months ago, and I've played them several times (and bought more Pendraken TYW stuff as a result) - all solo of course under current circumstances, but they have fired my enthusiasm to kick off a small TYW based campaign based around a small Duchy defending the Palatinate. The Duke is a bit like Christian of Brunswick but not as mad (probably). We'll see if he is any better as a general over the next few months!

Hwiccee is always incredibly helpful and supportive if you have any queries.

Sorry they aren't in pdf  but bite the bullet and buy a tree based version (renewable forest locks up carbon in the new growth you know!)

You've got to hand it to Pendraken - they don't 'shrimp' on the service  Grin

Let's hope that sanity and necessity see a shakedown of the new red tape.

I hope so.  We've been talking to our local council's Brexit transition team and the Crisis show would be a nightmare currently.  All of the stock needs to be exported/imported into Belgium, plus all of the stand equipment (racking/tills/display figures) has to be declared as non-sale items.  Then the same has to be done to leave Belgium after the show, with the possibility of them emptying the whole van at the side of the road to check it over.  We'd have to register in Belgium and pay someone to take care of our VAT payments there.  And finally all of us would need green cards and visas in order to travel there!

No info from here, we've not heard anything from them since last July when they announced the 2021 date.  I'd imagine that they're stuck in an awkward position waiting for the government and ExCeL to pull the plug, otherwise they'd be liable for the cancellation costs. 

I think this time most traders will want the money back, as the future of all the shows is looking doubtful until autumn at the earliest.  A lot of companies might decide not to go back to shows at all, and another chunk will need that trade stand money to get them through these strange times.

Isn't ExCeL currently serving the nation as Nightingale (London) plus mass vaccination centre.
It'll take a while to get that decommmed and ready for normal usage.

I did walk on it to the shops and back and it was OK as it was several degrees below zero, so not slippery. Now I'm sure it's a rather different matter.

I'm not sure what'll happen with Crisis, the paperwork and hassle involved in taking a trade stand to Belgium is extensive and I'm not sure if many wargames companies will find it viable anymore.

A real shame, Crisis, plus a bit of sightseeing, and catching up with old friends was on my bucket list.

Let's hope that sanity and necessity see a shakedown of the new red tape.

For Egypt 1973, your main AA systems are:
Sa-7 teams allocated at brigade and army level
ZSU-23-4
57mm S60
twin 23mm ZU-23-2
85mm KS12
100mm KS19

For other armies, the 14.5mm ZPU-1/2/4 AAHMG are probably more common than 12.7mm AAHMG, along with 37mm M39 AA.

Having said that, we need the 37mm M39 AA, 85mm AA and 12.7mm AAHMG for WW2 Russians, so making one would easily be converitble to the other, if not identical.

Good to see that the lockdown hasn't reduced our ability for bad puns... 

Are the lobsters and crabs still available or are they retired to the cooking pot of shame  Cheesy

They're on the schedule to be revamped a bit but we've still got the moulds here if you'd like some straightaway.  Just drop me a message and we'll get them sorted.

Yom Kippur saw the role of AAA take a whole new meaning in denying the Israeli AF air superiority.

Table top would there be a demand for generic Arab SA 7 and Dshkm in AA mounting?

Thanks and I am glad you like the idea of the separate scenario downloads. This is very much the way the non society rules will go in the future. So for the upcoming Napoleonic set there will be a few few in the rules but everything else will be PDF's.

Yes Sun King works well for the Williamite wars and of course the Pendraken figures are fantastic for this era. The 2mm stuff has a certain charm as well. I actually used 2mm for most of my playtesting for the Divine Right rules. I am not sure how far along you are with the ECW but can I recommend you go for big units/bases, indeed this works well for the Williamite Wars. The ECW battles are relatively small and so big units really shine. The Williamite Wars are larger battles, particularly if you do the continental campaigns, but the same applies.

In any case I think your plan sounds good. If you have any problems get in touch.
