Civil War Battles / Limbers for ACW
« Last post by martin goddard on Today at 06:16:04 PM »

Here is a short video about the new PP ACW limbers. There are 8 variants. The variants include standing and moving, union and confederate, two horse or 4 horse.  All 8 limbers are now in production, with Mike and Nigel at the helm.

Using the Forum / Re: News banner photos down

Don't worry the banner photos are fine, this just seemed to be the best thread to post in...

Just mis-read the title of one of the banner photos: mountain tribe administrators. Guess those mountain tribes don't just organise themselves.

That WW2 game was massive Mike. It was also very late, past bedtime. He (chap and his son) was using king and country figures which in themselves are expensive.

They done that a few years back, BBC 2 ?
This one is done in conjunction with i e of the railway magazines.
Looking at there site, they are doing a model railway scene in a cakebox, 8 inch square, that looks good too.

We used 54mm metal and plastic figures for a Zulu game or two. Looked excellent. At Historicon I took part in a WW2 Normandy game with vehicles and figures of really top quality, again great to experience but cost and storage is an issue.

Pieces of Eight / Land raid tables
« Last post by martin goddard on October 14, 2018, 03:44:04 PM »
Having settled on 6" squares for the grid, tables are starting to take shape.
The rules will make it very clear that any size grid is fine.
Matt has give me some base boards that will entail the table being in two parts.
At present i am using Nigel's 27 year old board. It is in 6 parts. Being of hardboard it tends to warp a little.
But, it has been slapped a bit and will be used for my games over the next couple of months.

Stewart needs to "chime" in here about the cloths that have been commissioned  from a mat maker.

I wil get a picture of Nigel's table. Maybe Matt can do it this Thursday? (Matt?).

Life. The trails and tribulations of being a model maker and wargammer. 
One thing i have learned as you get older the kids grow up etc, and you can have more time available to do your chosen hobby. Hopefully.....
Until the wife has other plans ? We have all been there one way or another ?

Talking of TV shows. Has anybody seen the Channel 5 series "The Great Model Railway Challenge" a very good concept and shows the problems we have all experienced one way or another doing shows and tables for events etc....
Giving teams 3 days to make a layout to use and show. Showing some modelling technical abilities and problems. Worth taking a look.
