A place to share my thoughts on miniature wargaming, reviews of rules and miniatures, and comments on board and card games, RPGs (and anything else that takes my fancy!)
The first game cannot be far off now ;)
If only - I still have the horse, guns (such as they are!) and officers to finish basing - they're all on the bases but they need texturing and painting etc. and then I shall unleash them onto the table!
I am getting very tempted to buy an ECW army.
Sorry about that John but if needs must! :-)
Great work Al! Nice flag too!
Thanks Ray. Wargames Designs has quite a few freely available for download - which is rather nice of them.
My refight AAR of Justice Mills is still in the CWG (Canadain Wargames Group) yahoo group if you are interested (see below)http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/cwg-med-ecw/files/Scenarios/
Thanks Geordie, very interesting!
Glad you found it interesting the book reference is a good read and I think generally available: S.R. Gardiner’s History of the Great Civil War - Volume Two 1644-45(p143-149, ISBN 0-900075-05-8)
I'll keep an eye out for that one. Mind you my reading list is embarrassingly long at the moment (over 50!).
Er, I don't dare talk about "my books" in my houseWell I go the the great wargaming table in the sky, I think my wife plans to ask the crematorium to burn my wargaming library instead of gas for fuel, a Viking Longship funeral pyre (Note to self: Get rid of DBM rule sets well beforehand otherwise eternity will be hell!)
I can feel myself coming over all Scots and saying something about "reading books instead of burning them..." :-)
Very nice, just looking at picking up some of my own pike blocks yours may well have swung me towards redoubt.CheersStu
I think the key will be checking size against other manufacturers as there is quite a bit of variation in ECW ranges but glad to be of help!
