AK47 Republic / Re: Starting your AK army for real
« on: December 12, 2018, 11:28:47 PM »
Are you planning on reawakening the spirit of the Levellers Martin?

My own AK47 army is full of Toyota's with lots of enthusiastic 'volunteers' riding in them. I wonder if there is a Dacia pick up as real Toyota's are expensive.

A quite I hold dear.

I am not a board gamer really. As a friend once does it to me, they're called board (bored) games for a reason.

It's more the subject matter as opposed to the actual gameplay. I will search for other campaign systems to consider.

Sean, do you have Balkan conflict also?

Not yet but I have been tempted to get one from Irregular as they have quite a comprehensive range.

Not recommended then!

Lord Scrope sounds like an upstanding fellow.

Found my old copy the other day. Can't ever remember playing it! I think I bought it off eBay intending to use it as a campaign system for Bloody Barons.

I've watched a couple of YouTube videos and it seems quite a an elegant game and eminently suitable to use Bloody Barons to fight the battles.

I suppose the only issue is you might end up playing the boardgame for a couple of hours before a fight ensues and not have time to play it that night.

The new duel pack is lovely. Looking forward to some after dinner duelling on the dinner table.

I was only vaguely aware of this change and had no idea what it all meant and why they had done it. As an agnostic atheist I'm not sure i have an opinion either way but I'll be interested in how 2000AD handle it!

Its the Vallejo bronze. Gives great coverage with one coat. The guns are sprayed white and then washed in the main carriage colour. Brinze and gun metal are added in before a wash with Agrax Earthshade.

Yes compound interest has always baffled me. I bet a lot of people who aren't historians and have little interest in history know the significance of 1066 though.

Exactly Martin, but I would never impress that view upon any one other than close friends who know how to take a gentle joke.

I think my point is more about why the national consciousness hasn't been made aware of this and yet Hastings and Waterloo are both accepted general knowledge. It's not a dig at anyone individually or accusing the general public of being ignorant. It's not the fault of the public if they do not know what they do not know. Hastings and Waterloo might be seen as more important because of the percieved impact following the outcome of both battles. Bosworth is possibly more famous because of the locating of Richard III's remains.

Towton may not have decided the outcome of the Wars of the Roses - but I still find it astounding that 1% of the population is thought to have perished there. That is the equivalent of 600,000 casualties in a single day today. Even if the number is half that - it must have been a terrible day indeed.
