Interesting games, hopefully Martin will be playing with the correct version of the correct set of rules this time!

If you let the cat out of the bag, it may have a detrimental effect on your rules sales?

Simon

After last years stunning success I shall bring along my late war French again. I have developed a new plan that relies on the elan of my infantry. Futile frontal assaults will remain the order of the day and my men shall carry all before them - long live the Republic.

Sounds like a cunning plan.

Played SB again today. Semenov's Russian v late war British. The Brits came on and flattened the Russians. The Rusan did launch a-cavalry attack but the infantry stood fast and killed the cavalry. The armoured train shot a few Brits but  could not stop the brits flowing arounf them. If at first you fail , give up.

Bought two sets of the Warbases plastic markers for SB. They are nicely finished, but the etching is very light. Gone over the words with a black pen and they are a bit better. The red ones are much clearer than the transparent ones. Les' mdf ones seems the ckaerest of all. Others had experiences (not with aliens, but with the markers).?

Yep I would go with the wood ones every time, the plastic gets a bit lost!

I was given an excellent tip re warbles plastic markers. Paint over the letters of the dark ones in white and light ones, such as yellow, in black - use acrylic paint. After painting each one wipe off the excess paint with a tissue/kitchen towel while it is still wet. Now you can see the words very clearly.

Searched my flickr account for a photo but couldn’t find one.

I prefer the plastic ones, as they are less intrusive on the table.

Which I guess, by definition, means they are less visible!

I did try the paint and wipe , but there is very little depth to the engraving. Not to worry I can always ask 'what is that?"  Might treat myself to some MDF ones soon.
