For starters, a lot of the "units" in Twilight: 2000 are smaller cores of once proud divisions and brigades that have been shattered by unceasing combat, as well as the breakdown of the logistics network. They're often a collection of su

Over the years I have bought several game mats, some get used some don't, but all cost good money and until now have been rolled up and crumpled in a corner due to lack of storage space. So last week I made the long overdue decision to buy some cardboa...
Last year I made up a load of casualty markers for my games. I made several sets for single dice, sets of two and three, but I soon realised I needed a few more of the single frames. So while I was at Salute I picked up some more of the little MDF...
