Were the Bolt Action rules ever amended so that the rifles did have the range to shoot over their Pegasus Bridge model? I'm sure that I heard they changed the rules  ???

I think they are 24Ē for rifles but I donít really know them.  Some of the guys at the club like them but for 28mm WW2 Iíve played Battlegroup.

Ah right, I got confused by the title of the pic. I've played Chain of Command for Through the Mud and the Blood and they were an excellent set of rules. I've yet to try out Battlegroup. I have to say, I was immediately put off by the 24" range, effective range or not, as most of my WWII games have been played on a 6' x 4' or 12' x 8 table.

Keep those lovely pics coming- inspirational as they are  8)

Latest progress on my steamer.





This is the inspiration.  Itís not identical but gives a bit of the impression.

Thanks all.  Fingers crossed I'll get to play a game this week!  :o

In the meantime here are a few new troops.

A second unit of Cossacks, including some lancers this time. 


A few more Red Sailors


Some Reds with Head Swaps


Some generic troops to use as Socialists, Reds or Whites and maybe Nationalists as needed.

Lovely work all around. I really like the generic figures though! I've done something similar with my VBCW/ARBM forces. Their allegiance is determined by whichever flag or character is deployed with them at the start of the game  :)

Nah, my dockworkers aren't so fickle as to be turned by a travelling Tory ;)

Those Socialists however  :D

It's ban actual quote by one of the Bolshevik soldiers the Dunsterforce encountered! lol

I guess if you have had no formal education and been treated like a serf for most of your life you're might be prone to just go with the flow.

We managed to get some figures on the table yesterday.  Here are a few pics.



Whites and Reds search house to house for supplies.





The cossacks rode down some red sailors then threatened the now isolated red artillery.



Comrade Zhelezniakov and the food requisition detachment cross cold steel with some white officers while father Basil shouts curses as the godless commie scum.



Lastly, some pics of the full armies so far.
