In the pirate range there is a pack of swimmers with sharks.

Which swimmers is Martin going to model, paras crossing the canal for Operation Market Garden? British/Polish paras in Arnhem?
Some pirate types for Pieces Of Eight new campaign system? Should they be for the 15mm figure game or the ships game?

Great information, especially Leslie BT, thanks for that!

So, the big question, how to transfer this into a Bloidy Barions Army? As the rules as based by base, if you see what I mean, it alliwd mixed units very well, at it basic level ‘standard’ bill and bow foot units. So an eight stand, 24 figure, Scottish unit could be fourcrear stands of Spearmen, (this is for a Berwick era army, my understanding is that full length pike weren’t really around til Floddon?) two stands of bow? And two stands of ‘nobles?’ Maybe Armoured/harnessed chaos? Then a unit or two of just bow? And the same of just sword and buckler? Some light guns, and light cavalry? How about full harness heavy horse? I’m doubting this, but, as for the standard foot, a stand or two in with the light horse?
Sorry for my ramblings, but I need the wealth of expertise on here, translated to the tabletop!

Many thanks for your help so far, and thanks in advance for any ‘wargame’ aspect he’ll you all can give.
PBI / Re: random set up

We tried out random terrain placement last night - worked very well , if you fancy it this is how we did it,
we diced for random terrain each
1 = hill (dice again 123 open 456 rough)
2 = swamp
3 = depression
4 = field (we also have open which means nothing can be put in the 2 squares - including teriary)
5 = rocky outcrop or woods (dice 123 = woods 456 rocky outcrop)
6 = buildings

dice for random position of objectives

then dice for each piece as its laid down.
you select a piece , diced 2d8 , measured from your side of the board and you select which side to measure from, you lay the terrain piece in any direction from that square. if it overlaps an existing piece you can place it in any adjacent square to the square picked
Buildings dice 1 d8 for how far up or along the building is on the road.

It gives a nice randomness to the terrain
PBI / Re: tank morale - by buildings and woods

An interesting question on tank morale got asked last night and we struggling with the logic of it.

It states a tank suffers morale  if it has no friends in adjacent squares - so it ignores friends in the same square?
I say it counts friends in the same square - but it doesn't say that.

It's not logical captain.

Thanks for this Miles. Good to see the level of support already being recorded: notably a very eloquent letter from a certain Duncan W Sargent.

For those interested in seeing the plans and reading the correspondence received to date, the direct link is:

Does seem to be. Near to the Fleetsbridge roundabout. I assume better business rates etc not being in a prime location. At least Tescos is around the corner for Lunch.
