Desert v Desert Transition

Hi folks Desert v Desert Transition: I'm currently thinking about getting either desert (1) or desert transition (2) hexon II boards or even a mixture of each. Firstly - are they the same colour desert? (Looking at the photos they seem to vary in shade). Secondly - which would look better for a Nort...

Re: Gettysburg - Battlecry

Hi folks Interesting alternative to use 20mm bases and just have four figures. It would cut costs by half approx however I think I prefer having a full base with the 8 figures even if that meant either using casualty markers or simply only swapping some of the plastic figures for painted miniatures....

Re: Gettysburg - Battlecry

Hi folks, Yes I have had a look at the Kallistra figures for the American Civil war - they look really great and they have a nice weight to them. A Kallistra base could have 8 figures on it. You get x four bases and 32 figures in a pack - is that right? So one pack could replace one Battle Cry infan...

Re: Crossing the Marne

Hi Robert Nice neat setup. As we discussed before kallistra can be used to good effect under a cloth for topography. In the setup shown in your photograph has the kallistra been used to raise some parts of the terrain up or are the kallistra hexes flat? If there is a variation would you kindly eithe...

Re: Kallistra castle as rpg scenary

Hi Darctos The castle wall battlements are 4cm high and each single hex wall length is 10cm the same as a hex side. The space on the top of the main gate is 10cm x 5cm. I do not own the smaller tower. The round tower has 7cm diameter. I think 30mm scale are ok with this scenery. I used to own some 2...

Re: Operation Market Garden - Memoir 44

Hi Dane Thank you for the reply. There are still some more possibilities with the trenches e.g. a single hex trench which goes left as well as straight. A single hex trench that goes right as well as straight. And a single four way trench piece. As soon as you add a straight to any of these pieces i...
