Ditto to the above comments. I particularly like both road/wood pieces, myself. Lot of god PSC stuff, who makes the AEC?
The only PSC kit are the Sherman 75mms, Fireflies and Stuarts.

The AEC is an old Skytrex metal model from back in the day :roll: :roll: :roll:

Re: Battlegroup Market Garden weekend

Having been very lucky to play in a number of very large games over the years, I couldn't see how the BG rules would work. Playing around a large table covered in figures under the control of several players is for me one of the most enjoyable aspects of the hobby. The key to these games is to have ...

Re: Arnhem Big Game 2018 the last day

Thank you for all the kind comments. We are planning to play 'The Island' table as a demo game at The Colours show in Newbury. We are also hoping to do the 101st table later in the year, but that will depend on being able to get all are group together for a weekend. It was a most enjoyable weekend, ...

Arnhem Big Game 2018 the last day

Sunday was a bit of a strange day, the first hour was spent finishing off day 3 (an hours actual play) and then it was into day 4. Unfortunately the dalays of Saturday had left us with only 2 hours of play for the last day. We had to be out of the hall by 3.00pm. On day 4 I moved to the Island to ta...

Re: Battlegroup Market Garden weekend

Loving all the terrain.

Am I right in thinking this is a series of small games linked by a theme rather than one big table?

Do the BG rules not allow you to play large multiplayer games?

Re: Operation Goodwood - Tanks advance

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I am busy adding to the terrain and finishing some ruined buildings that I started at the beginning of the year. We are going to play the scenario again at the Thornbury modelling show on Sunday 5th August, after this I will post the full Orbats and rules. ...

Operation Goodwood - Tanks advance

Alan, Ian, Rob, George and I put this game on at the Exeter show today. We used Rapid Fire rules and the scenario was our own work. All the terrain is mine and the models are a joint effort. https://imageshack.com/a/img923/5373/j1S7wV.jpg Looking south with Cagny to the left. Looks very good tank co...
