I hope cavalry both light and heavy battlefield uses and impact are improved in V2August 17, 2018 at 2:40 am #143485BakblastParticipant
I’d like to see forming square to be a little less automaticAugust 17, 2018 at 4:54 pm #143557MareckiParticipant
Some information from RickAugust 17, 2018 at 5:57 pm #143559
Love the Bren on bipod, casually sitting on the shelves at the back of the room 🙂August 19, 2018 at 9:27 pm #143587Dr DaveParticipant
Did anyone notice all the old Airfix figure sets in the cabinets? Takes me back…August 19, 2018 at 10:26 pm #143593Big AlParticipant
Probably John Stallard’s Games room. He is a big collector of the old Airfix figure sets.August 19, 2018 at 11:17 pm #143594
What? Still on the sprues!?August 20, 2018 at 7:06 am #143599Big AlParticipant
He told me that he collects them. I believe that he has unopened boxes. Don’t know any more than that!August 20, 2018 at 1:17 pm #143629yeahmanParticipant
That is Stallard’s games room. Been there a couple of times for pizza and games. He has loads of boxed airfix kits etc in his cabinets, as well as an incredible knowledge of the Zulu war!August 20, 2018 at 1:20 pm #143630yeahmanParticipant
In terms of BP2, I really hope it’s just re-written to clarify things, and a few obvious areas tweaked.
I also hope Priestley has not put in loads of additional details and pandered to the period-specific, button-counting brigade.
If you think something needs changing…change it yourself with a special rule! It’s not exactly rocket science to do.
The rules cover 200 years, not just you personal little love child guys.August 20, 2018 at 2:55 pm #143637PeterParticipant
Any idea when this is available to pre-order????August 20, 2018 at 3:09 pm #143639BakblastParticipant
4:00 BST, first 250 get a signed copy, free British naval officer figure (Banfield anyone? lol)
Is there more than one timezone in Great Britain?August 20, 2018 at 3:43 pm #143658
@ Bakblast and Peter – from Friday’s WG newsletter email “Black Powder Second Edition Pre-order Information:
The Official pre-order date and time for the anticipated Second Edition of Black Powder is the 22nd of August, at 4:00PM BST! On that Wednesday you’ll be able to guarantee your own copy! To stay the nerves of some of you – all previous expansions and supplements will remain compatible with the new edition!”
@Bakblast – Only one time zone. British Summer Time, BST, is the UK’s day light saving. Currently the UK is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time or GMT, and this period is known as BST.
@yeahman – according to Rick in the WI interview, it is all about clarification and stream lining. Seems to include some of the nuances from Hail Caesar mechanisms which I guess were evolutions from the original BP (e.g. Skirmishers and Generals).August 20, 2018 at 5:12 pm #143673
OMG, as the kids say.
A collectors edition. Looks grand. Definitely prefer having ‘Old Nosey’ on the front rather than ‘the Monster’! 😉August 20, 2018 at 5:44 pm #143676Dr DaveParticipant
How many time zones in Great Britain? Since time was invented here (in Greenwich) we got first dibs and chose to have just the one called British (summer) time.
