Re: Winter Wars - The White Kallistra Project

Hello Everybody,

Thanks for the reply - the tree bases sold on the Kallistra website might be useful for other manufacturers trees as well.

I have attached some pictures of my memoir 44 set up in the snow.

Best wishes

Re: Modelling castles

Hello Sally

Thank you for showing us your castles assembled and painted. I have also brushed my castle with ink using the citadel range of paints for Warhammer miniatures. I have painted the turrets in a different shade of grey. Picture attached.

Best wishes

Wallpaper Background Strip for Hordes and Heroes and WW1

Hello Everybody, I have been reading the rules to Hordes and Heroes Medieval and Fantasy which really fascinates me. Paul and Sally have done a really great job in particular the Siege and Assault supplement gives some good insights into EPIC battles (my last post) and campaign play. This post is to...

Re: Winter Wars - The White Kallistra Project

Hello everybody, Thanks for the reply. I think getting some winter trees is a good idea. I have seen a big bag of winter trees i.e. the snow has already been added for model railway in OO and N scale. For these it is likely I would need to use some sort of putty for the bases, I'm not sure how well ...

Winter Wars - The White Kallistra Project

White Kallistra for battles in the snow

Hello Everybody,

I have been busy painting some of my kallistra boards white for battles on the eastern front in the snow. In the pictures we are playing Tide of Iron with plastic soldier company tanks and using the T of I infantry as these pieces are customisable.

Best wishes

Re: Memoir44

Hello Norm Thank you for your post and alternative to divide the board. You are correct in saying that memoir44 can be played by a group of people - ideally 8 but 4 and 6 can work as well. If there are 8 people there is an overall commander who chooses which cards are played and hands them to his th...

Re: Memoir44

Hi Gabz

To divide the board into three sections I use "roads" from a game called "settlers of catan". These can be purchased on their own from an online supplier called "Board Game Extras". They are just small sticks really - lots of colours available.

Re: Memoir44

Hello Everybody

Thank you for your replies - hope you have been enjoying your war games. I have bought four new tables - two feet ten square so I can make my kallistra games even bigger! Attached are some of more of my pictures.

Best wishes
