Very nice!

But I've just splashed out on the new RFCM polo shirt...

I have an aversion to paying for postage on anything (the Amazon effect), but would be willing to organise a bulk order for those attending the Square Bashing Day to share the postage pain, if folk are interested?

Simon, I will have British or German going spare.

Many thanks Sean. I will check family commitments tonight and hopefully shortly sign up!

Simon - that's great - many thanks again for setting this up.

The likelihood of my getting a 1914 army painted in time is vanishingly small: is it possible/likely that there will be some loaner armies to use, please?

Funnily enough Simon my wife says that too...

Whenever gaming, toy soldiers, military history etc. are mentioned...? So does mine!

The limited edition gamette packs will be around for about 6 months after the "event". The rules discussion should be a reminder of how they go.  Forum members will also get some priority.  I am expecting to sell about 10 packs total.

Could these be good for shows? You could have one game set up for folk to try, and then sell them the gamette afterwards?

It won’t effect my wargames so not bothered either way.

My children's preferred word is "whatever"  :)

Martin - if you are soliciting input from a group wider than the select crowd privy to the play-test rules, are you willing to publish here the "rules" for these campaign maps?

Radar - you now just need to place your order for 20 packs of each for Martin's Christmas to come early  :D

Very nice, Lluis - I particularly like the red skull & crossbones - that really is a talking point!

Nice summary of the aims and guidance for The 15 Mill on the PP website, Martin!

For those that have not yet spotted it yet, please have a look here:


Western / Re: Painting horses some colour ideas

That's a great find, Les - first one of it's kind I've certainly come across.

From a more general horse colours and markings perspective, I find Henry Hyde's guide very useful:

Whoops - I'll get that News banner done too - sorry Sean!

... ten pages taken by a 'Walter Snaff' battle report.

Steady on Les - there's been some really great Walter Schnaffs stuff on this Forum - we're a broad church, remember  ;)

I agree with you for 15mm, Les - the PP bases (or 2p coins) work very well for me.

However, for some of the smaller scales, I think some people need a thicker base to give them something to hold onto (as opposed to the relatively smaller and more fragile figures)?

I have used Pendraken bases for some larger 15mm items (e.g. Western horseholders), which were good.
