Re: Messing Around in the 11th Century Again

So the sort of slope we used to love rolling down when we were nippers, then?

Re: Maxen- a SYW approximation

I'm a bit tired of the ECW project (all that fighting, screaming, bloodshed - and that was just the group planning sessions), so I thought a gentlemanly game of SYW would be nice. Cuirassier and cuirassier, said Alice. If I didn't know better, I'd say you were just pandouring to those granny dears ...

Phil painted it for me, so I have no idea of the answer on colour. It looks right to my eye for C18-19th games.
He's found a very nice brown for the wood, that's for sure. :clappy:

Re: Salute 2024

What are the car park charges like now? It would cost me about £40 return to travel by train, or £15+ each way + parking by car. Add in the show ticket and the overpriced catering and it's a lot to pay just to go shopping. There was a time when you would recoup that cost, and more, with all the post...

Given the care and work you've lavished on them, I'd consider a cocked and loaded Webley .45, myself.

Re: Penda's Crimean War Project

Fresh from a practice scuffle in Saucciehall Street (probably with either the Black Watch or the HLI). Very nice.

Re: Lace Hulk: New Info for players

Will the players be run over by a large stone ball? No? Ah, come on, what sort of game is that?
