Nice photos, Martin. There were a good number of 15mm games.

And is that a big congratulations to Dave and Ben for their lovely Arnhem game?

Ben and I had a really good day. Great to see every one.

The highlight of the day for me was, spending a bit of time with a dad and his young son who wanted to get into war gaming. We let them play the Arnhem game, introduced them to Martin who took them under his wing. Hopefully we have some new war gamers.

That is a great result Dave, well done!

I'm looking forward to the motorised tram car next time!

Great to see that all had a good day out with lots of wins.

Lot of opportunities for Martin to promote 15MM.

All looks really good.

That Pacific 28mm jungle set up looks brilliant (even if it is 28mm ;) ). Looks absolutely spot on.

The Arnhem game looks suitably built up, again giving a real feel for the terrain.

And the Ardennes game...?!  ;)

What I believe was a 25-year old game of Berlin 1945, recovered from the loft - buildings made from corrugated cardboard and foam board, which have stood the test of time extremely well:

Thanks for the pictures Colonel. Great looking games. It does make me think why people go to great lengths creating beautiful looking games only to put drinks bottles on the game area (Blood and Plunder).

Must confess I am always a little in awe of those smarty pants who make their own buildings (Berlin game); I can manage conversions but nothing starting totally from scratch

Poor planning. Mike arranged not only for our Ardennes game to be raised up but also to have space around the edges for rulebooks, dice and even the occasional coffee cup  :)

hadn't noticed any on the Ardennes game, I was referring to the second 'lighthouse' on the Blood and Plunder game

Post by: Colonel Kilgore on February 11, 2020, 04:45:54 PM
@Radar - I realised that's what you had meant - apologies if my response was ambiguous!

But our Ardennes table did work nicely with space all around. The Blood and Plunder game ran to the edge of the table and left no space for drinks and snacks.

For  the Ardennes games using White-Tac for snow was my idea, Miles was only following orders!Miles battlefront buildings are very nice and the White-Tac comes off without damage. From a distance the effect is fine, I think. The other buildings were mine and I painted on the snow.

I think it worked very well Mike!

Good idea. :)

It was fun putting the white tac on. Very good idea Mike. It created a snow effect which could be taken off very easily. I just based it on the wind blowing from one direction and went on from there.
I thought the out come was realistic as well. The Germans had the the initiative but not not enough in the tank to get there, falling short of their objectives.

Very jealous of the great gameshows put on over there.  Does anyone know who made the PPIG Pirates game mat?  Regards Alan in Australia

Tiny mats.
If you look at the PP website go onto the Pirates section, you can order it from there.
