Joining the Rampage

Posted on May 29th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

We are in the process of preparing a major house move, so don’t expect many battle reports in the next weeks. There may be one exception, however. After reading lots of great reviews, I finally caved in and ordered a copy of Lion Rampant from Annie at Bad Squiddo Games. I’ve read it and it … Continue reading Joining the Rampage

The Reason Why…

Hoi,This post is all about putting ghosts to rest. There are quite a lot of historic periods in which I have an avid interest but do not represent in miniature. The best examples are Ancients, WW2, Medieval Times and modern times. A “smaller” period of…

Building a Murray Semaphore

Posted on May 22nd, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

The British expedition sailing to St Domingue in 1795 brought not only more than 18.000 men, but also twenty-four modular two storey timber block houses as well as the latest invention in communication technology: a semaphore. This was almost certainly a Murray semaphore. Its inventor, Lord George Murray, had been inspired by news of the … Continue reading Building a Murray Semaphore

Furniture in 15mm

Posted on May 15th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

To enliven my gaming table a bit I thought about adding some miniature furniture. Nothing fancy, a couple of tables and chairs in order to make nice objectives for skirmish games. However, it proved quite difficult to find manufacturers which produce that kind of stuff. While there is lots of furniture for 28mm out there, … Continue reading Furniture in 15mm

Posted on May 5th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Just a quick update.  For a while I have been working on late war German projects for flames of war and I decided I needed to get some objective markers done to these armies.  These two are the Barkmann mechanic marker and the Michael Wittman…

From Tet to Tobruk

Posted on May 4th, 2015 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

It was a short working week last week with the Bank Holiday, which meant a little more hobby time than I’d normally be able to cram in. As a result something of an eclectic mix traded places on the painting station as I worked through some of the loot from Salute 2015 and cracked on with […]

After finishing the beach mat, I couldn’t wait to break it in. Last weekend the time had finally come: We decided to play an amphibious assault scenario with Sharp Practice set during the Haitian Revolution. To make things more interesting, we decided to use our ‘secret objective’ mechanics. We have used this extensively for games … Continue reading Beach Assault – Another Sharp Practice AAR
