Darkman,

Forgive me if the answer's obvious but, are those buildings all scratch built?

Darkman,

Not only do I have to compliment you on the game but, that is an eclectic collection of books you have there. What size was your table?

I must be old-fashioned as I need the heft of metal figures to be able to call them proper toys as opposed to plastic toys. A scrap between two plastic armies doesn't seem like a real wargame to me. Ducks for cover.

Rob,

Does Graham sell the CD? I've now got Barry's list but an index is definitely needed as the set covers some thirteen-and-a-half thousand pages.

Gentlemen, Thanks for all the replies. I have also experimented this weekend with the Army Painter dip on the free Crimean miniature I got with the Black Powder rules and realise that, whilst it may not be ideal for the professionals in our midst, it may be just the job for me. In future I will be ...

"Get behind me, Satan!"

I really need to start another period. Norma, my boss for the last fifteen years, has only just allowed me to populate the manor with Louis XIV's wee Frenchmen. :roll:
