Have to agree with John, plus I have shelled out £60 to Deepcut for my range of 6”x12” templates.

Indeed, but not in the same room!

I think Martin was going for irony there. Obviously a ridiculous idea.

Great looking troops, and a good use of unusual figures from another range.

Me neither, my £140 Motorola with extra memory card seems to do a pretty good job.

Yes thanks - amazing what can be achieved with Boots own version of Savlon.

You never discuss what actually happened on the table? Very unusual.

I was a bit underwhelmed by Vindolanda, seemed a bit dry

+1 for Bosworth tho. First time I've seen my kids engage in a 'fusty' museum

also +1 Fleet Air Arm. Love the trip up to the flight deck... and the "Walrus in blue"
I was utterly blown away by Vindolanda - incredible exhibits, thoroughly engaging, fantastic layout, plus living archaeology going on at the site. A massive thank you to the Birleys for enabling this archaeological interface with the general public.

Went to Duxford and found looking at old planes about as thrilling as watching paint dry. Each to his own I suppose.

Just back from a jolly jaunt on Hadrian’s Wall. Great walking holiday despite a toe infection and snow. I must be well ‘ard!

Anyway, the battle report. Regarding the cards - they were great. I love the idea of the random army generation, the instant asset gains and losses and the choice of further assets (or for the French whether to take some mitrailleuses - after all, they may end up attacking)

Having established the forces and terrain, the French ended up in defence and promptly lost half their army to the reserves (the cards had not been too kind either). The Prussians settled on two strong flanks, having seen the deployment of the French. they also began with a furious bombardment, taking out half the deployed French artillery, and having acquired extra bombardment dice:

This was followed by two rapid advances on each flank whilst the French tried to bolster their defence. Fortunately some veteran (professional) zouaves and Turcos got onto the table at the end of the French first move. They couldn’t prevent the Prussians taking the ruined building (objective)  but they did manage to hold them there whilst taking heavy casualties themselves from an attempted assault and Prussian artillery:

On the French right flank a much more successful assault cleared the artillery hill (objective) and broke through to the French base line. After two hours it was all up for the French who withdrew while they still could, the Prussians now holding three objectives:

Then, of course, there are those who do have a life. Would love to go to Salute one day, just to experience it. Maybe next year or the year after.

Unfortunately I am unable to travel away from home as often as I would like. Planning carefully I have had my annual walking holiday and will next be having a long weekend down at Colours with some of my club mates.

The 15 Mill / The Mill Issue 2
« on: April 07, 2019, 10:16:02 AM »
Wow, mega issue in two parts. That’s my currently reading sorted for a while, plus I already have the petard party in my ECW collection (not to mention the original cuirassiers awaiting the Kev treatment), so a slight painting diversion will allow me to have a go at being hoist by mine own.........
