How to make a 3d ASL Map Broad by George Hoitis

George posted this on the Classic Squad Leader broad.  If you have every play Squad Leader or Advanced Squad Leader there are time it becomes a pain to  figure out line of sight. In SL or ASL this is critical in winning or loosing a battle.  George broad design solves this problem.  He has done this by turning the board into a 3d battle broad.   The process is simple and pretty quick to do.Bob is in my ASL group of guys

Talomir Tales - Joust!

Been working on a stand alone game for Talomir Tales and all of the other Fantasy titles. It's set up as a Tournament - starting with jousting and going to combat on foot. Points are scored based on how ell the Knight does, highest point total gains Fame and Fortune. Can be played with any of your existing Characters. The Joust consists of three runs on the course or Lists.This pictures shows the two Knights set up for the first run. Each Knight consists of s Knight Card, Rep Card (blue) and Bonus Dice Card (green). As Bonus dice are used and Rep reduced the Cards are changed out to reflect the current status of the Knight. The 1st table rolled on is the Charge Table. Both Knights roll versus Rep as they spur their mounts forward. The 2nd table rolled on is the Aim Table. Both Knights roll versus Rep as they take aim at their opponent, Head, Chest, or Shield. The more d6 passed, the better the result. The 3rd table rolled on is the Strike Table. Both Knights roll versus Rep as they contact the

A SHORT Post Today

GET IT?!The past couple of weeks have seen me working on some little projects (get it? Get It?!) that I thought I could finally share. Due to a trade with a friend, I came into the possession of some more Westfalia Halflings and I decided to expand my force a bit. I added eight more Halberdiers to the existing unit of twelve, so now I've got a nice meaty group of guys to anchor the core of the army. Ready to Rumble. Or at least their bellies are rumbly.Now that I've got a good sized army, it was time to add some scenic bits for them to defend. I built the two Hobbit Hovels in the first picture because I just couldn't wait for the resin ones Forge World is producing to come out. Before making them, I scoured the internet for a nice step-by-step set of instructions on how to make a hobbit dwelling and nothing seemed to give me what I was looking for. I'm building a third hole at the moment and I'm taking pictures as I go, so I expect to put up a tutorial soon. Over in Age of Sigmar-land, the latest Ge

The Campaign for Azmodov 7: Assault Phase

Even though the forces of Pax Arcadia had beaten back the Recce attempts from the Emperor's Children, the assault inevitably came.  While perhaps not as pinpointed as it might have been, had the information been fully transmitted back to the fleet in orbit, they descended in their landing craft.  Fireballs lighted up the dawn, as the forces landed on the soil of Azmodov 7.  The tide of extremities had arrived, and the beleaguered Pax force had to hold out against the overwhelming numbers...So, scenario 2 in our Future War Commander narrative campaign that Nemesis and me are playing out, and this time the Pax only have half the points available of the Marine Corps troops.The scenario objectives are that within the timespan of 10 turns, you must break the opposing battleforce.  Failing this, causing 25% casualties results in a minor victory instead.I opted for the bigger models in this force, with two knights, minimal regular marine troops, a heap of commanders and decent armoured support.Th

A fistful of 15mm Swiss

With a one-day Late medieval themed competition looming, it seemed a good time to upgrade my handful of Mirliton Swiss pikemen into a L'Art de la Guerre Swiss army capable of taking to the table.With the Mirliton ranges no no longer being available in the UK, I decided to try a different manufacturer to round out the 5 pike blocks I owned already. After a bit of browsing I settled on the perhaps unlikely choice of QRF/Freikorps, on the basis that they looked to be a similar heft and body shape to the Mirliton figures, and also as they too had open hands for separate weapons.The QRF figures are a smidge more frail, and are less "frilly sleeved" than the "a bit frilly" Mirliton figures, but with a good selection of flags downloaded from Alex Flags, compatible basing and similar paint schemes they look pretty decent at tabletop distances to me.These are 40x40 bases with 12 figures in 3 ranks - an  ADLG KielI chose to blackline these figures - not a style I usually adopt, but with the blocks of adjacent colo

Phoenix, Penrith

While the rest of Britain, from the Midlands south, basks in the hottest summer since Rorke's Drift oop here in't North it is grey, windy and on occasion rain falls, so what better to do than take in a wargame show, especially as the Morecambe Kite Festival of yesterday robbed me of two hours of my life.Phoenix is only 45 minutes away at the Rheged Centre in Cumbria, a strange kind of place which holds all sorts of events and has a cinema, a grass roof and a very strange car park, I think it is supposed to be environmentally friendly but it confuses me, I am never sure which part I am in. This is very much a local show albeit some big names were there, Sarissa, Warlord and Colonel Bill's, the rest of the traders were much smaller outfits but there was a decent range of products if not huge. There was a small but brisk bring and buy where you buy a space and some time and then showcase your wares, most of this was GW stuff which seems to be very popular in these here parts. I thought GW and Victrix from Kendal

A bit up and down, this week.

Hello and welcome to Inso's World.This week has been a bit all over the place.I have been going to work as usual and have had a really good bunch of shifts; as a result of some good team work. When I have not been at work I have been clearing the garden and on one occasion, while ripping out some rotten wood, I found a very cool toad (which I evacuated to a safe area). I still have a bit of a way to go but the garden is certainly getting there.Tuesday was a sad day. We had our lovely old cat, Fred (AKA Bouff and the Bear) put to sleep. He was fourteen years old and had been living with arthritis for a good few years (he was on medication for it) but over the last year, had developed some nasty growths in his neck and throat. We kept him going for as long as we could but he had just had enough so he was peacefully put to sleep on Tuesday.Click the Pic!Rest in peace, Fred.On Thursday, I went to give blood but have been told I can't donate for a year because I am anaemic. That came as a bit of a shock but it cou
