Pondering Tanks 'At An Angle' and the 'Glancing Off' Effect
There is usually a mechanism in rule sets covering AFVs & anti-tank fire to determine whether front or side armour should be targeted. In simple terms, attackers want their AP rounds to impact the target AFV as close to perpendicular as possible to reduce t...

Forests Kickstarter has gone live!
I'd already advertised the two sets of forest tree canopies I'd made as a test on eBay just to see what the interest was. Nothing, not a bid nor a watch. After 6mil Phil 's bocage hedges did so well on Kickstarter and after much encouragement/nagging by Rob...

Les Hammond commented on a post on Blogger.
I only AD&D'd up to 2e. I find my brain is a little too...inflexible to DM now, unless it is with my kids. Liked hearing about your rewrite, brought lots of memories back, in fact I started writing my own with the stress on 'started'. I think it's the process of writing rules and constant tweaking I enjoy, almost as much as playing.

City Blocks 2: windows & doors

All my games have been 'typical' battles as the terrain tiles did not lend themselves to recreating anything but an approximate setting for a real engagement. Now that I've got a nice gaming cloth and a selection of land forms to put under it, I've been on ...

Tree Canopies, part 1
I am bored with the rubbery lichen I was using for woods as I only have two colours, a very Autumnal coppery brown and a light green. The former isn't applicable to the Continent in early May and lichen isn't even very practical. Tank barrels and figures in...

City Blocks, part 1
I was looking at my buildings thinking that they are all OK (at least when they are all painted) for country farms, villages and towns but in Sedan and many other French cities you have long blocks of municipal buildings, hospitals and apartments and multip...

Some More Linear Objects
Continuing with terrain features on lolly sticks, today I made rustic fences, hedges and also some painted fences suitable for city boulevards and town squares. If I never whittle another lolly stick it'll be too soon... I chamfered and whittled off loads o...
