I meant to mention the Csaba armoured car is a really cool looking model too!0
Well it’s not really a deal breaker, I’ll be using the Panzer III’s as 5 shot mmg’s as they are both painted in identical Hungarian colours, I don’t want to confuse my opponents with that.
Besides, the rule I will be using on both tanks is the armoured command from the armoured car, as this effectively upgrades my regular panzers to veterans…[Read more]0
It’s a shame,
WoE is a great system and also captures all the old nostalgia of fantasy in the 1980’s
I’m my own worse enemy as I still refuse to do Facebook.
Id love to attend a big event, I’ve got Knights, Barbarians and Goblin forces ready to go….0
I’ve just finished recently putting a Hungarian force together,
live taken the Csaba 40M armoured car, as this has the armoured command ability,
plus a Hungarian panzer III AND a German axis support Panzer III.
They are both painted in Hungarian colours, just to look different.
im pretty sure German supplied armour still benefits from the G…[Read more]0
Where are all the WoE players?
Do they use a different platform for conversation etc. Facebook for example?
Are there any WoE events in the UK planned in the future, assuming of course we come out of lockdown!
Hummm, I can see how that helps.
However, for some players it would only shift the argument to “where do you place the template”!
The front of some armour isn’t clearly defined in most cases.
I prefer to play where we just agree if it looks like a side impact, and if not roll a dice.
saying that, I do have a laser and a template in my army…[Read more]0
Yeah, mine sits on my shelf, one day!
Brumbar is a good compromise.
Thing is, late war armies always have a puma in the list, but again these are so cool.0
HA! Just what I did with my Germans in BA.
sturm tiger is a great model, and funnily enough I too used 2 of them in FoW!
take it to tournaments by all means, just don’t expect to win!
under V2 rules this thing can actually destroy buildings in a single shot, and completely remove any units in it!
you will find your opponents directing a lot o…[Read more]0
Nice, and good display cabinet.0
It’s lovely, but maybe I’d use it as an objective!0
I didn’t even know there were special rules for this guy!
lovely artillery piece by the way!0
Playing historical opponents is way better than open tournament style play.
BA is a fun game, but it improves when you start to put historical context in there.
Just use forces that are historical and also figures and models you like the look of!0
No problem Jacob,
justin from the above post is another old bugger like me!
he’s based in Preston and I’m in north Manchester.
so you’re kind of in the middle!
im not sure if I’m allowed to post my email on here?
but feel free to contact me if it does work,0
Yes! Looked at the FoW campaign map.
I’ve ordered the Market Garden book to see if it will work.
funnily enough it’s probably one of only a couple I haven’t got!0
So I need Market Garden then?
although your quick list seems useful! Lol0
So, lockdown! It sucks.
To be fair I have painted up figures that have sat on my shelf unfinished for a long time!
Plus I’ve even hosted my first game of BA using Zoom app!
Anyhow this got me thinking, I’m fortunate enough to own a fair few armies, so I can host the games at my house whilst my gaming buddies just play the mini campaign?
I say…[Read more]0
It’s just AP rounds which suffer the long range penalty, as I understand it.
A massive HE round lobbed over a great distance still blows up the same, it doesn’t need the “push” so to speak that the AP requires.0

Yup, sorry, only one lot of pins.
Lets be honest here, the Japanese army is a very powerful force in BA.
it doesn’t need any more help!0
