I like the bit in Spectre where Bond has 'Borrowed' the DB10 with it's £3m Q-Branch Upgrade, and Q has just Dymo'ed the switches.  It's very British.

Blucher is brigade bases isnt it? Moving divisions around maps is exactly what im aiming to achieve, campaigns and battles being linked with in game effects i.e losses, troops/generals gaining skill

Club choices:


(1) Maurice

(2) Blucher

(3) Pickett's Charge

How could you leave god own county though?!
Large chunks of NZ are quite reminiscent of Yorkshire, but with warmer weather. As for reasons many, mainly due to my wife being a New Zealander.
Glad I avoided the BBC chaos - Brexit, Boris and Cocked response to Covid 19.

I wonder if "M" made him pay it off at 20 quid a week or in RAF parlance the DB10 was just quietly "struck off charge" after its swim in the Tiber?

Getting back to labels I do think that well designed ones are worth adding to each stand where possible. Makes unit identification in larger games much easier.

Back to rules for a moment:
If you want to solo play a battle in a day - Volley and Bayonet - the original set for preference, or the 'Road to Glory' second edition if you can't find a copy of the original (ignore the stuff about  brigade skirmishers though - it messes up the elegant simplicity of the original).
Your units are brigades and again there is no line column square  stuff, but you do get to throw in a reserve cavalry Corps when you feel like it.

Works for 7YW to Franco Prussian War or back to Marlburian/GNW (possibly 17th Century, but I'm doubtful) with amendments available online.

Back to [OP] for a moment:
You're new here, aren't you...

Blucher has the Scharnhorst campaign rules in the back.

Somebody mentioned this thing about 'maintenance of aim' to me once, can't seem to shake the idea, sorry. Smiley

@sandinista
I have family in new Zealand i would love to go visit one day, looks beautiful from pics i have seen!
Thank you all for the suggestions, think i need to get playing and tinker with rules until i find something that works for me. I had thought of neil thomas rules they seem simple enough to base a game on and with plenty of options to tinker

Plenty of players using Warlord rules over here these days but I'd suggest coming (at least to Wellington) another day - we have a good Wellington Southerly today - feels like 2 Degrees C, winds gusting 120km/h and plenty of rain turning to sleet/snow on the hills, 6m waves in Cook Strait so ferries cancelled..... Shocked

Luckily my son flew back to Christchurch yesterday just before the southerly arrived.

Still, can't beat Wellington on a good day  Wink
