Bloody Barons / Game on the 14th Feburary
« on: February 14, 2019, 07:38:19 PM »
Played a Game of BB today using version 19.
Yet again it became a shooting game rather than fighting.  26 shooting casualties to 7 from fighting and 4 from standing after losing a fight.
The rules do not explain the effects of scenery for shooting into or from.  We had two woods and one zone of buildings.
If a unit becomes out of order does it lose its winning the fight marker?
We also did not understand the circumstances of ‘Target loser fall back OR takes 4 more hits’ It this 4 more hits on units or wards?
Does the above mean that two wards will be in the same zone and continue fighting in the next turn?
We also did not understand the above and whether it could be the choice between staying on table and taking more casualties which would maintain control of the zone because the attacker could not enter or do both attacker and defender stay in the ward for another round of fighting and what effect does the wood have on either side?
At the game start do the ‘defender losses’ create a casualty?
At the game start do the ‘defender losses’ count towards the losses for the game end or do they go back into the soldier box?
If the general is with a ward when does he move? He has move as item 1 in the sequence but this will mean he leaves his ward, the ward then fails to leave the scenery and is then with out a general, this does not make sense.
When a unit arrives from reinforcements is it in order or out of order?
When a ward is forced after a fight to fall back and it leaves the table with several casualties what happens to the casualties.
After carrying out the fight outcomes and units have been forced off table can they then be brought back latter in the same turn as an arrival?
In the set-up at the start in our game, yet again the defender placed all the scenery in his side of the table and the attacker failed to move any.
Turn sequence. Items 10, 11, 12 all state both, is 13 both or just the turned player?
The fight that took place was even dice each, so all just came down to a gamble on the dice roll.
The scenario dice and results worked fine.
The armies we used were attacker took ten units and the defender 15 units as in the rules.
The game result was the attacker 3 points in advance to the defender.
All the set-up for the generals worked well.
We used the scenario aspect but only used 1 for the attacker, all other were either a draw or no 6’s.

The 15 Mill / Small problems with the 15MM.
« on: January 12, 2019, 07:17:38 PM »
Martin the e zine you have on the PP web site has a lot of the links in Simon's article about terrain broken.

The links in Simon article did work when I check them a while ago.

I have checked all the links in the other articles and they all work.

I can find this in the head lines on TMP, why not on this site!!!?

General discussion / MDF or another material for your buildings!!
« on: January 05, 2019, 06:36:38 PM »
Do you use MDF buildings for your scenery or another material.

Do you buy pre-painted scenery or is it going to be bought in the buff?

Terrain and Figures / Is this where we are going?
« on: January 03, 2019, 07:37:41 PM »
Interesting source of new figures.

As they are 3D printed, they just need some education in figure scales and sizes!!


General discussion / Carabina 30-30?
« on: December 26, 2018, 09:22:13 AM »
Does anyone know if the files on this topic still exist?

They were on the old Yahoo forum.

Could you post the file or put the link to it here.

When I go to the Yahoo site I am locked out of looking at any files.

Pieces of Eight / Land games suitable models?
« on: December 23, 2018, 02:12:19 PM »
I have two model ships to build for the land games.

I need to decide how to make them pack up into a sensible box. The masts are very tall and waste so much space in the box!  Ho-hum what to do.

One is the now Tiger Terrain model, the other who knows and I have a couple of Green Man small boats to finish as well.

The 15 Mill / So have [b]YOU[/b] sent your short article in for the 15MM?
« on: December 23, 2018, 11:37:01 AM »
So have YOU sent in your 15MM article?
Simon has sent Martin the new logo.
Sean is reviewing Civil War Battles without using Martins catch all word "faction".
Stewart is discussing 3D printed buildings.
Leman is showing us all his QRF Scots HMG team with some WW1 kilted Scots infantry.
Sean's working on a Vietnam campaign called "Tour of Duty".
Another Simon is working on all sorts of articles, look forward to seeing one.
Simon is doing a WS article so as to show we are a broad church.
Sean is writing lots of stuff, WWW review, CWB scenarios, WA scenarios, BAW scenarios( I don't know where he finds the time!).
Martin has the first game prepared, figure pack out and on sale and duncan is going to paint and photograph the figures for the first issue.
Sean is having problems with his maths, 110%, I ask you which school teaches that? The same one that has "factions"!
For the new game I have had trouble getting the picture up to 8/0 x 4/0!
Seans got all the pointers to support why 15mm.

I think Martin going to struggle to keep "The 15MM" down to 10 pages!!!

Terrain and Figures / What colour is your undercoat?
« on: December 23, 2018, 10:58:33 AM »
So what colour are your figures in for their underwear?
Is it white?
Is it black?
Is it another colour?
Do you try to use the base colour for your finished figures?
