KEVIN CALDER'S PRUSSIAN JAGER

How observant you are Peter!! The Jager made it to the woods and spend the whole of the first day skulking(as Jager probably do) and popping off at French Cavalry squadrons which strayed too close. I seem to remember them killing at least 5 casualties from various units but THINREDLINE on this use g...

Battle report

The full battle report and four detailed maps are now finally uploaded into the Warchest - Scenarios section. I believe my journalistic interpretation of what happened to be accurate but I'm certain the commanders will let me know if they disagree !

Beating the hell out of drums!

There is ! Redoubt Enterprises make separate drums for their ECW drummers. At a pinch an alternative which I've used many times is to take a sharp craft knife and cut the drum from a standard figure. The damaged cut area can be placed face down and packed under with milliput or similar thus conceali...

The plot thickens -Polish lancers 1939

I have been corresponding with Mike Siggins and indirectly with John Boadle(are you out there John?) on this subject. So far the conclusions are : Cavalry charges? YES Lances carried during 1939 campaign? YES Charges against Panzers? NO (against stationary armoured cars in a rear echelon area - YES)...

Hi Rene, this is one of my `pet' subjects! GHQ Microarmor can be used straight from the book for 15mm. A credible amendment would be to double the movement and fire distances if using 15mm figures but even applying the 1/285th distances and ranges will give a great game. I swear by them!! I have a f...

Hello Paul, thanks for the kind words which are always good to hear. Let me see if I can help on the flags issue: Mark Allen's articles on the Wars of the Grand Alliance & Spanish Succession were very well illustrated particularly the flags. There are over 15 parts to the series, running from around...

Another good book on the same subject is The German defensive battles on the Russian Front 1944 by Alex Buchner published by Schiffer Military/Aviation History of Pennsylvannia. It is translated from German. Buchner was also a Landser but his book covers a wider range of battles than those in which ...

Answering your questions

Gentlemen, in response to your questions I have opened a new section in the WARCHEST called Quick n' Dirty Guides. It will contain brief guidelines to techniques which seem to generate the most questions. I have started with `Weathering your troops' which should address some of Rene's issues on the ...
