I remember playing it and finding it laborious, dull and long.........   Just my experience though. I believe many do like it.

The 15 Mill / Petard rules
« on: March 22, 2019, 06:18:14 PM »
The Petard rules for edition 2 are about ready for consumption. I am keeping them until end of March/start April when Edition 2 of the 15 Mill comes out. I think it is more exciting to see them when the magazine comes out. I don't want to spoil the expectation.
The gamette pack is now out and on the PP website.  It contains enough for both players.
This time there is a play sheet too.

From my own perspective the game really is good fun.
The format is a stretch or path of 24 spaces/squares. Each player has 5 figures.
These figures move along the path and engage hazards. Hazards can be avoiding by scoring enough to "dash" through them without stopping.
At the far end players have to blow the gates down.
The figures then need to get all the way back to the start again too. Thus a 48 square path in total.

Hazards include piquets (Stonewall Jackson?),exposed bridge, abatis, sally port, artillery and random fire from the defenders. hazards such as the bridge are more dangerous than others such as own piquets.

Victory points do not require all to get back alive. the rewards are for how far the party progressed, blowing the gates, surviving etc...
i will get a battle report done for the 15 Mill too.
Hope this arouses interest.
The special figure in the gamette pack is an officer brandishing a pistol, whilst charging forward. See it in the web picture.

Thank you Simon.
We played land raids at club this Wednesday. Really enjoyable.  We got two games done in addition to a few games of the Petard rules.

That DBA campaign looks really good.  Well put together and well judged forces.

It is good value because you only needed one. Is a pilot going to jump in?

Thank you fir finding it. I have not seen that before.
Looks like the whole set on 2 sheets.
I d not mind if people do their own play sheets, but in this case it seems to be looking official. Confusing. 
It needs to have text adding  to say "This is an unofficial play sheet, not intended for distribution"   or similar.
Mystery all cleared up, thanks,

I am not skilled enough for it.
I did make some figures out of wax. You make a mould and pour in molten metal that displaces the wax.
I also tried polystyrene and used molten aluminium to displace it. Far too crude!
I expect Dick Higgs learned it over many years.  For figures it is now  too outdated I feel. They will say the same about me in 30 years time when 3D is common.

Using solder did work very well in those days. He had 4 different solder types each with a lower melt point than the previous.
Neville Dickinson (the original owner of mini figs) says the masters all still exist! Must be thousands.
I think that putty has made it obsolete?
But then 3D sculpting will make putty obsolete.
Tony Barton uses Fimo  to great effect.  He is very talented.

Agreed thanks.  If it is on the board-game geek site i will have a good look.  If not can you help me find the whereabouts of:-   

"Hammeriní Iron 2 Quick Ref Sheet
Version 1.0. P.Schulein, 2003 Hammering Iron 2 rules by the RFCM, 1999"

any ideas?

thanks in advance

Brilliant.  1980 at a guess?

That really is excellent.  Or as youngsters might say "grody to the max!"

Hello Graham
You are correct. However SCW is low on the list at the moment. It will get done though!
