Re: Legacy fall back rule

I have a lot of 25mm/28mm on 60mm stands, but I would never suggest anyone follow that path.

They should be on 80mm wide bases and the problem goes away.

Re: Shooting

I know there was some discussion about target selection and shooting in general... However, right now I do not think there is a "restriction" on target selection or a maximum number of shooters allowed to overlap a target. There is a limit on shooting at somebody only once, i.e. you have to resolve ...

Re: Hittites

Thanks Bill, trying to match them to a previous group I painted for Brian...

Re: Normans

The Archers can be used as Early Crusaders... (i.e. Normans in the Early Crusade list)... And yes I would think the elite foot could be a mix of dismounted knights with Swords, Spears, Axes... Rod, I think you're answering the question "what do I do with my stands of Archers" rather than the questi...

Re: Early Russians

David, Sounds good the only other suggestion I might make is to look into an option for a stand or two of Bad Horse to represent the "Opolcheniye" which appears to have been not Druzhina, but mounted townspeople and farmers. I suspect these guys did not fight mounted though by choice and probably di...

Re: Stream Terrain

Hobby lobby has sheets of "stiff felt" in 12"X18".... various colors. Paint it with modge podge to seal it first, then acrylic paint as you like. Can be flocked with various stuff to make banks and the center can be gloss coated (Modge podge gloss) to make a water look. Lays flat and tends to stick ...
