Thanks for the reminder, Martin :)

Also for the loan of your lovely Saxons. I've realised that the number of figures required for Longships is not quite as daunting as I had first thought, and am now sorely tempted to build a little raiding party - once I've painted up three WW2 companies, a couple more Vietnam forces and a bunch of Pirates...

I read it some years ago and found it quite fascinating.

I was stumped about how to turn it into a game, given that the "reveal" at each iteration was really the whole point.

But educational none the less.

A good day was had by all. We got 2nd,Best of Show for our game. Considering it was only half the table and a lot of tanks were only basic colour painted. Thats myself, Big Mike and Colin.

Congratulations all - that's wonderful!

I've sent you a note, Miles: if you email me the photos I'll post them here.

Great plan Stewart, and sounds like an excellent day. I'm afraid we already have plans to go away for the Bank Holiday weekend, though...

Wow - that sounds like quite a big show!

Glad to hear that the PBI game went so well, and looking forward to seeing some photos in due course. Those landing craft sound intriguing...

Good luck to all at the Beachhead show today!

Incidentally, I see that Hobbycraft have the 1:100 Revell Huey gunship available - for 8 a pop:

Or one could of course get the same thing from Mr Pig for just 6.30:

Sounds promising. I've had no luck finding anything similar to Stewarts.

Sean,

I think you may want to be looking at these:

https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/revell-ghost-ship-easy-click-kit/639281-1000

There was a thread a while back discussing these, which I believe are very similar to Stewart's albeit without the electronic whistles and bells:

Smaller square bases for me with one dead figure on them.
For SCW I've also added a splash of coloured paint on the sides of the base to identify which platoon they belong to.

I'm painting the back edge of my PBI platoons' bases (including those of their casualties) with their own colour. Which is hopefully subtle yet legible.

Trouble is, if the figures are not prone, they might blend in with the non-casualty chaps.

That's the problem I've found...

Different shape / size of base e.g. half-size bases for Square Bashing and PBI; round casualty bases for others (in contrast to square "not yet dead" bases).

Different types of figure: prone casualties are generally easy to distinguish from the upright live ones.

If all else fails - a good slosh of red paint?

Nice to meet you John. And great timing with the new Bloody Barons rules in the pipeline.

I hope you enjoy being a Forum member - please continue to join in with the banter!
