Links to Colonial Battle Reports (Updated 06/03/2018)
« on: March 02, 2011, 01:09:07 PM »
As requested, a page of links to colonial battle reports on the LAF. We'll keep it locked so as to not dilute its purpose as a resource. Any comments about the reports can go on the report threads themselves. If I've missed a favourite of yours, or if I've bollocksed up any of the links, just PM me. Right now it is only battle reports that are on the LAF itself, not ones that are just links to blogs or other forums. I may add those types at some point in the future if enough people nag me about it.

Edit: Okay, I've started adding reports that are on blogs and other places that aren't Lead Adventure. If you have one or know of one you want added please PM me with the address.

18/10/2013 Edit: A long overdue update. Sorry for the inexcusably long delay but I have now tracked back through the old posts and updated the list. Probably still missed a few, but I have run out of gin. There were some that were a page of dead picture links, and others that were links to blogs where I failed to find the report in question on the blog. These I have left off the list (please link directly to the reports, not the home page of your blog if you want to make it easy for me to find them).

Warning: Since the site move many of these links are all buggered up.

Some of the off-site ones labelled "Blog Report" seem to work fine, but not the on-site ones.

The tech boffins are looking into a solution that doesn't require manually altering them all.

Right, as the discussion has gone on to a second page I've split it into its own thread to keep this one "clean." If you have anything to add to the discussion please post there, and leave this thread for actually posting links, which I will then add to the list.

The new thread:

Thank you!
