Don's Boxer Rebellion
« on: February 20, 2023, 09:12:20 AM »
For this years Tactica in Hamburg I wanted to do a Boxer rebellion game in Peking.
The new Boxer minis from Wargames Atlantic looked soo cool. And are a great way to get masses on the board.

I asked my dear friend GS if he could lend me a hand... or two... because I needed all the boxers painted and a lot of chinese houses... lol lol lol

If I find the time I perhaps add a few detailed pics of the process, but for now I sadly have only a few pics of the final board at the tactic location.

We played with streamlind and heavily house ruled "A Song of Ice and Fire"-rules. No rank and file, but we kept the tactics-Borad. Panictests, healing and so on...
Worked really well and the players had lots of fun.

Okay... here are a few pics... ;D

Overview of the board.



From the other side. In the foreground are the cool china houses by GS.



We put all the troops close together, so things get hot very fast ... 8)





...I even builded a small tennis court... ;D ;D ;D



We did 6 games on the Tactica-weekend and it was a very enjoyable time... :)

Cheers,
Don

Fantastic looking table! Must have been great to get so many people to play on it at Tactica

I find it intriguing that the thing that tipped a project of this scale into being was the availability of plastic Boxer figures!

Ok,that's a point. On the other hand: If you have a game as big as this in mind, you'd rather wait for two things to come. One is the plastic set to keep the cost of the project at a sum that can be called "ok".  The other is a guy as mad as yourself to paint 120 minis in about three and a half months to make it to the Tactica. Don and me met for that purpose, may be. 
btw thanks for the kind comment on the presentation:)

Cheers

It does look good and fun but pretty highly stylized what with the taller buildings and water on the far side of the Tartar Wall.  But what the heck, we work with what we have to make it work, especially with time and budget constraints.  So, good job.

Iíve seen this board featured on some blogs, but sadly wasnít at the Tactica. It looks brilliant.
And to answer GS: yes, itís kinda mad, but wouldnít life be totally boring without the mini madness?

That's a beautiful board, love the amount of detail you put into it.

From what you said the houses with the grey tiled roofs were built by GS, do you mind telling us what he used for the tiles, especially the ridge tiles.

Cheers
