Let's paint those Shields

Like most people when it comes to painting shield I draw a big blank.  I sit there staring at the shields waiting for a divine bolt of lighting to inspire in painting the shield.  I could be hours before I put paint to the shield.  Well here is the solution.  Now it is a no brainier.

Battlefield Accessories Hex system

This is a great system.  To me it is a pretty flexible system.  With this battle broad  you  really don't need a rule for measuring. The company is out of Australia.   Great for playing ASL with miniatures.

Beneath the Lily Banners rule set

The latest version has been released.  What was the earlier edition like.  We have been playing Pike mans lament.  It is a beer and pretzel game. Too me it lacks a little bit.  Artillery is useless in Pike mans Lament.  Unless you manage to get a commander this first fire ability.  Currently the older version of the rules can be purchased in a PDF and Tablet form.   Last month I purchased Warlords Ordnance Battery.  Very nice set.  This new addiction in lead has been caused by my old friend Anton

Lock and Load to release new core rules Version 5

New from LnL publishing.  Yes I'm a fan of LnL games.  To me it is a simple version of ASL.

For over 15 years the Lock ’n Load Tactical (LnLT) system has set a new standard in squad-level gaming. Its innovative gameplay mechanics, unparalleled artwork, historical scope, and accessibility have entertained veteran and new gamers alike. Over that time, our rules have grown, too, introducing new unit capabilities and concepts; they have also matured in their presentation.
The LnLT version 5.0 (v5.0) rules manual contains the latest set of guidelines and regulations for the game system. Our goal is to present the rules in a straightforward manner without disrupting their existing structure and foundation. The biggest difference between the v5.0 and the v4.1 rules is that the World War II and Modern Era core rules are no longer separate, and rules specific to modules, are now found in the module-specific rules. For clarity, some rules sections have been modified not with content but with a new structure, e.g., additional subsections, more bullet points, or more images and examples. Additional cross-referencing of rules and a detailed index have also been added.
Other new additions to the v5.0 rules are numbered examples within sections with multiple examples and a hexagonal color-coding system has been implemented in the table of contents and throughout the manual, to make referencing certain sections and subsections easier. Two new sections have been added: one on Scenario Information, which breaks down how scenarios are laid out, to aid new gamers; and another on Series Resources, which introduces new and veteran gamers to additional ways to expand and enjoy the LnLT system.
Learning any game system can be daunting, but don’t be dissuaded; we use a large font-size, to accommodate the eyes, and have lots of examples, to illustrate the mechanics. Further, the best way to learn is to have another person show you how to play, but that’s not always an option. We encourage new players to read the two new gameplay walkthroughs (for infantry and vehicles/ordnance) found at the back of the booklet before reading the rules, to familiarize yourself with how a scenario plays in an intuitive and observational manner. The v5.0 rules can be used with any previously published LnLT module.
We are still completing the rules so a lot of items have not been decided yet but will come very soon. We are shooting for May but that is not set in stone.

General de Brigade battle of Dennewitz 1813

What a amazing game.  The picture of off the General de Brigade face book page.   I for one love to play and see large battles fought in 15mm.   Small skirmish battle for me should be played in 28mm.  Napoleonic's is my first love in war gaming followed by ancients  Desmondo Darkinis took all the photographs all credit goes to him.   Just had to share the pictures.
