We do Sype Alex in Canada and my sister in NZ with good results.
We also skype my sister in law in the UK usually getting a poorer service.

Enjoy tomorrow chaps. Sorry I can't be there. Still an outside chance of making WWW but don't put any money on it yet.

AVW CWB at Entoyment Poole on Saturday 3rd Novembers.
« Reply #112 on: November 03, 2018, 08:12:30 PM »
A fine day of ACW gaming.  Numbers were reduced. John got eaten by a dragon and Stewart was wing walking. Chris was canoeing. Not sure these are all true but they sound plausible.
As usual the atmosphere was great. Good company and good games. The quality of Entoyment also helped. They provided hot drinks, food and a nice venue.  If you were not there you know who you are.
I got taught a lot of new things about CWB. 
Colin showed the most skill at D6 rolling.
Miles shot my Confederate brigades to bits whilst Colin delivered the shwere punkt.
Mike had a 3 general.
Rob was  rolling high all day.
Martin kept introducing rules that "must be there somewhere".

Really good gaming. With no grids :(
Wanted to see the new Stalingrad buildings by flames of war, but forget to look.
Colin took a bunch of photos.

Thanks to Miles for organising the event.

I popped in on my way home from work. The game being played looked good, great scenery (Miles?) with a lot of figures on the table, a lot going on and some toing and froing . Must admit from what I saw Rob was not throwing high unless for a moral role. I did admire the sight of Martin marching his raw infantry brigades out in the open  in front of Miles's veterans dug in around the farm objective - did it go well Martin?

This is a good set of rules and when discussing 15mm v 28mm serves to show 15mm at their best, lots of terrain and figures - looks like a battle rather then a skirmish.

Picked up my 15mm Edward  lV figure too which looks great so thanks Martin. 

Chris

It did not go well Chris. Although a slow advance, across open ground against veterans, ensconced in  a building, would be a good chance to rout those yanks.  I was probably unlucky? Lost 2 brigades that way, but did kill a couple of yankee figures!

Quite an enjoyable day. But the numbers are getting less at the moment ?
Goes to show you can have fun on the large games ? My Irish Brigade held their ground as expected...
Roll on the next games day ?
