Card driven systems

The various posts on using cards for DH in the most recent LOGW game got me thinking. One of my favourite game systems is I Ain't Been Shot Mum by the TooFatLardies, a sort of cross between traditional rules and free kriegspiel, which uses a card driven move sequence. The card decks are tailored for...

It's great to see faces that look like faces without the lines everywhere that seems to be in vogue. The camo is really well done, splinter is probably the most difficult to pull off.

Deferred success! Stuff and nonsense; as matron always said, a good beating never harmed anyone :P Messrs Imrie and Hilton's indulgence of the young sprouts would have brought a tear to a glass eye. I have instructed old scrotum, my faithful retainer, to rattle off a quick note to the Papa recommend...

I'm really surprised to hear the terrain is constructed on a TSS shell. I thought it was a sand/glue mix over ply. Was the texture applied straight on to a TSS flocked board? Adrian, if you're out there you have got to put me out of my misery and let me into the secret of how how you textured and co...

Speaking of temptation. My Spanish Civil War supplement for DH arrived this morning. Anarchist Militia with an Acc and Guts of 4 and no sergeants - now that will be a challenge.

DH Casualties

I picked up a copy of Price of Glory, the WW1 version of DH. Although similar to DH, the POG rules give a much clearer explanation of the use of cover and LOS, including a new terrain type called Dips and Folds which represents broken/undulating ground. Most interesting is that POG does not apply th...
