<t>I have painted my Core box ships and am now working on the Men of War box. The 4th rate does indeed have all the baroque 17th century decorations to paint. The photo of Julian's (Model J Ship) models commissioned by Mike Tunez show what can be done with the models (granted he scratch built mast p...

Moved on to War Thunder several years ago when they introduced ground warfare. A much better game in many ways.

<t>I have played Osprey's Fighting Sail using TTS and once you get the hang of how to move miniatures and measurement devices it works very well. <br/> <br/> I did get my KS O&I set plus more at Cold Wars, so I am busy painting the ships for future face to face games. They did a great job with t...

<t>I signed up for an account and got the first round of books no problem. On the second round I mistakenly went to the UK shop and it rejected my order stating my account was US based. Since that time I have been unable to log in. I suspect clearing my browser cache may fix this though. I did note ...

<t>Bill the reporters name was John Boruk if that helps. He told one of the GMs that the story could be found on the WGAL website.

<t>I had an interesting experience on Friday. The local news channel sent a reporter, likely because we had a large event that had not been cancelled. I saw him interview Heather and he came over to where our Too Fat Lardies games were running. You likely saw the Arnhem bridge Chain of Command game....

<t>It seems that Covering Fire shares some mechanics with Arty Conliffe's Crossfire published in the late 90's. Movement terrain to terrain, continuous initiative until some failure like getting suppressed by op fire or failing to suppress with offensive fire. Initiative often did switch sides frequ...

Bill: I am awaiting my Kickstarter order of Oak & Iron. The last update had the US orders landed passed customs and on the way to the warehouse. Good news indeed.
