Idea for new piece of Kallistra

Hi folks, I came up with an idea for a new piece of kallistra namely a “mountain with a plateaux top”. The idea is that it looks like a mountain but troops can stand on top. The problems I experience with existing kallistra are as follows: 1) Mountains are impassable terrain 2) Hills don’t have that...

Kallistra and Hornby Railway

Hi folks, Thought I would drop you a post today to let you know how I am enjoying my Kallistra. I enjoy war gaming but don't get the chance to play often, so lately I have been mixing my Kallistra with my model trains. Here are the results: IMG_1769.jpg IMG_1770.jpg IMG_1771.jpg IMG_1772.jpg IMG_177...

Re: Painting Project - Battle of the Somme

Hi Sally,

Thank you for posting the pictures - the miniatures are painted very nicely and just a small number of colours but very effective - I do like the greens.

Best wishes,

Graham

Re: What's next?

Napoleonic Coastal Batteries - your opinions

Hi folks, I'm getting into Napoleonic naval warfare and would like to put together some coastal batteries. I have some single hexes which I painted white and thinking about putting some model cannons on - I'm not that worried about scale. I'm probably going to use 1:1000 scale ships. Do you think th...

Found a set of rules on http://www.juniorgeneral.org by Mic McGoldrick that uses a card deck for each plane - the main difference between ww1 and ww2 being the Immelman turn manoe...
