Over onze club

Wij Amsterdam6shooters zijn een vriendelijke club van volwassen wargamers die twee keer per maand wargames (en soms boardgames) met miniaturen organiseren in Amsterdam-Oost. Met passie, met lol, met plezier en met stijl. En heel breed: Alexander de Grote, Napoleon, WOII, 40K, Age of Sigmar, X-Wing: het komt allemaal op tafel. Met ons meedoen kan door gratis te registreren en daarna via de agenda op de site een tafel te boeken. Een eigen leger hebben is niet eens nodig: we hebben alles. Dus wat let je? Angst voor miniatuurtjes?

…and there’s more where that came from…

A good afternoon of Compendium work, largely looking through the main rulebook and Raiders, along with a couple of pieces already in the Compendium, and attempting to consolidate all the career advancement and province improvement stuff into one set of well-referenced and non-contradictory tables in the Appendices.

It’s going to take another session, I suspect 😀

Terrain Cards – Random terrain placement for pick up wargames

In our recent game of Tilly’s Very Bad Day Chris observed that, as the defender, he could exploit the terrain placement rules to his advantage. This is my proposal to address Chris’s concern. These rules allow randomised terrain for pick up battles in any period.

The terrain placement rules described here borrow heavily from Terrain Cards for a ECW Campaign.

Part 2 of the Bill McHugh Collection: The Assyrians

In addition to the Hittites in Bill’s collection, there were also some other Chariot era figures. 

In this case Assyrian Medium Infantry Archers. 

22 figures of them – with the addition of 2 command figures, that will be enough to add two units of these archers to my Assyrian Army

There were also some Assyrian Cavalry.

10 figures of these.

With my basing scheme, that will make one unit of Medium Cavalry (6) and one of Light Cavalry (4) added to the Assyrian tally as well
    All of these figures will need some minor refurbishing work and detailing. From my last Old Glory order I also have 3  Assyrian 2-Horse chariots that can eventually be be added to the mighty forces of Ashur. Bill had still more Chariot era figures that I acquired… but they will have to wait for another post!
