Mexican Revolution / FfM V18 playtest.
« on: January 23, 2021, 06:30:29 PM »
Game of FfM today.
Government army second half was the defender. Veteran with pair of guns, 2Mg, +1 mg, 3 bomber bases.
The other army Ragged Rebels. Who won the piggy chase and choose to be the attacker. Raw with 3 bombers, extra unit of cavalry, 6 extra cavalry bases.
The pictures show the armies and the start of the game.

We used lots of assets, incorrectly rolled for extra at the start because we were successful before turn one with the assets so defender rolled four times, attacker rolled 6 times. We had an interesting game that all worked well. 
The attacker kept his cavalry in reserve on turn one and brought them on on the defenders baseline on the road and then attempted to push through the centre back onto the objective.
The first raw unit that was beaten was brought back on on the train on the defenders base line and combined with the cavalry, now dismounted, to push onto the centre objective,
By the end of the game most units of both sides had been destroyed. 
We had 5 turns and used most of the assets.  We did find that you had to choose your assets carefully to get best use from them. I had a veteran army and found some assets difficult to use as with the unit getting a bonus for being veteran and so could not get them any better.  We used the assets on our opponent as well which worked well.

So it should be an interesting mould this week.

Some Ashigaru spearmen with Union infantry marching in 13.5mm and some WOTR bowmen.

And in the second mould a Harley-Davidson Indian Model 340 B, or perhaps a Norton Model 1 “Big Four” MC combos, with Austrians in leathers a few 1/600th ACW figures.

All PP  first in the war-games world.

An online games day for historical games was filled up in 15 minutes.
Yesterday Virtual Lard on January 30th had all the gaming seats filled in 15 minutes.
23 games in various periods and scales were filled. Most games have 4 players plus the organiser / umpire.

So can we do the same with PP games?

My Viking figures are now all based and painted.


Bloody Barons / Castle and town walls.

Civil War Battles / ACW Epic?
« on: January 01, 2021, 04:40:11 PM »
Ok so what's the opinion of the new release of the Warlord Epic ACW range and what are the ideas behind the range?

Is this competition for 15mm metal figures or good to get more people interested in the ACW and playing war-games?

They are a very different style of war-games figures.  So what are the thoughts?

Mexican Revolution / FfM V16

Had a game today.
After a game two days ago where we spent a lot of time getting up to speed with the start of the game todays game we started around eleven and finished after 3 turns each at 1.30 so we are getting the hang of the setup.
We did the setup much quicker and we think it was more correct, only one road and no primary scenery in the pit-stop row.
Anyway more tomorrow plus some pictures.
