Good things come in small packages

During my couple of days off, I have been busy sorting out my 1/600 WWII miniatures. Firstly I decided to redo the labels for my infantry stands because I have never been quite happy with the ones I created before, as I wanted them to be easy to identify when playing but be generally unobtrusiveContinue reading “Good things come in small packages”

Little Italy pt.1

I have been busily playing through this battle whenever I’ve had some free time, and things are certainly hotting up! I’m going to post this battle report in phases due to the nature of Cross Fire, which doesn’t have a turn sequence as such, when a particular side has the initiative they are able toContinue reading “Little Italy pt.1”

Base-rate inflation

After a wet, grey and generally miserable week here in Nottingham the clouds have dispersed to revealed a large round shining disk in the skies. British meteorologists are baffled as to the nature of this strange phenomenon but as it has made the place look much more pleasant all round no one is complaining! The bleak week has been very productive however asContinue reading “Base-rate inflation”

Tea for One

Due to life conspiring against my hosting of a monthly game with the Old Guardsman, I thought I’d devote my attention to my ‘Little Italy’ project this time. The scene has been set and below is the map and a list of the forces which the Old Guard will be commanding from afar. I will be giving him a copy of these to make his plan of attack andContinue reading “Tea for One”

Scenes from the Corner of My Room

I don’t have a dedicated ‘games room’ and so instead must adapt with the space I do have to use here at Chez Tinpot. I can set up a 4′ x 4′  table in my front room but it has to be taken apart and stored after use. This will most likely be the mainstay for most gamers and is generally consideredContinue reading “Scenes from the Corner of My Room”

Progress on the Frontier

With  the festive holidays providing me with plenty of time for hobby projects, I have been busy painting more French & Indian War miniatures. Firstly we have this unit of British-Colonial rangers including the famous Major Robert Rogers (Pictured with the red cockade)… I have also been sporadically painting my Canadian militia models over the last couple of weeks. The first few miniatures (picturedContinue reading “Progress on the Frontier”

Canada at War

After having received a last-minute text from my good friend Graham, letting me know that he was free for a game on Sunday, I wasted no time in finding a scenario for us to play Crossfire:WWII using my 1/600 scale miniatures. As I mentioned in my previous post, the anniversary of the D-Day landings took place on Thursday, so I was keen toContinue reading “Canada at War”
