Battle of the Kursk - Summer 1943

Hi folks, Setting up day 1: Here are my pictures of the 8x6 feet layout of the "Battle of the Kursk" - Summer 1943. In the end I went for a camouflage effect mixing my painted white and flocked green tiles. Maybe the snow is melting. Here are the pictures: IMG_1256.JPG IMG_1255.JPG IMG_1254.JPG IMG_...

Tile arrangements for large Memoir 44 games

Hi folks, Its the holiday season again and I have been thinking about setting up a large Memoir 44 game using Kallistra. I have been drawing out some tile arrangements for some EPIC play using some of the sizing standards that are out there. The first board drawn below is EXTENDED BREAKTHROUGH - thi...

What rules do you use for aircraft hex games?

Hi folks, I was looking at a lot of pictures of kallistra layouts on google images and found a couple that use blue hexon for the "English Channel" and then green flocked hexes for the "Coastline". The pictures are on an EPIC scale and are truly amazing - I hope the club does not mind me showing one...

Re: What's next?

Hi Paul, How are the new terrain pieces coming along - in particular I am very interested in seeing the ww1 bunkers? What are the current time scales for these please? Are the new Napoleonic rules being tested going to use existing minis from the historical range or new sculpts? Hope to hear from yo...

Underlying hex board for Eclipse board game

Hi folks, I have been recently looking into the rules of the space game Eclipse and found that Kallistra could be very useful for this game to create an underlying space board. The galactic centre is in the middle of the table and each of the 6 player Empires are one hex gap away. Considering expans...

Re: New setup

Hi Colin,

Thanks for posting the links - great setup. Is that a map of the front on the wall you got there? Is it real?

Best regards,

Re: Favourite Napoleonic's Miniatures

Hi Andrea, Thank you for your reply. As for rules I was thinking of the possibility of substituting some of the blocks in the command and colours game Napoleonic's for miniatures. I was hoping some people might give some insight into what brand of miniatures they have collected in this historical pe...

Kallistra and "Blocks"

Hi folks Just a few quick questions to ask if anybody uses kallistra for Command and Colours "Block" games such as Ancients and Napoleonics. - Can blocks stand up on flocked green hexon boards or would they need an underlying base? - Would the blocks look too sparse on the Kallistra hexes 100mm in c...
