Yes we did have a tournament at Stockport, Element Games.
we didn’t get a massive turn out, but all enjoyed themselves, it was a relaxed friendly affair.
It would be nice if Warlord hosted a big one day event?
Yes super glue can make acrylic go cloudy, plus if you have metal infantry you have to cut off all the base, which can be laborious.
i use 2p pieces mostly, and 1p for artillery crew.
this works well for plastic figures as it adds weight?
i am starting to switch to MDF though, plus you can get MDF movement trays which fit nicely.
I’ve come late to the party, but wondered if there is still any interest in this period?
Im a massive fan of BA and more than happy to keep playing this system, but I’m looking for some new painting projects, hence the interest in Korea. (Also WWI but not sure any official BA rules will become available for this)
I just haven’t the time to start…[Read more]
I’ve just started looking at Korea,
I too fancied a KPA force to start with, then use my WWII US troops as proxy for a later Korean force to take them on.
i was looking at the starter deal, and also noticed NO selectors with LMG squads having 2 weapons??
also the starter deal gives you a medium and heavy machine gun teams, again not strictly a…[Read more]
heres me thinking that hole in the gun mantle was damage from a small calibre anti tank weapon!
well you learn something new every day! Thanks
I think it’s probably a mix up on terminology here,
since the Stug doesn’t have a turret, then in theory the whole vehicle is a ‘hull’.
The MMG sits on the top of the hull next to the commanders cupola.
Ive done that with my Romanian force too! 2 X 38t tanks.
The trick is to not engage the better Soviet vehicles, but use your tanks in an anti infantry role.
Use panzershreck against the enemy armour.
I meant to mention the Csaba armoured car is a really cool looking model too!
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]
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….
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]
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]
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.
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]
Nice, and good display cabinet.
It’s lovely, but maybe I’d use it as an objective!
I didn’t even know there were special rules for this guy!
lovely artillery piece by the way!
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!
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,
