Since Gerry won't be in. Does Alan B or Banksi have the rules and cards to be able to play something this weekend on the WWII rules or do you two want to play Confrontation against each other?

I don't have the cards for WW2 so I guess it will have to be something else.

Confrontation sounds good, 2000pts OK?

Hi

Gerry has said and I quote "if i can get my finger out my arse then iabsm's on" so I still dont know if he's getting his finger out of his arse biggrin , failing that we have planned WoW and/or gears of war.

Oh I might have been using a bit of artistic license and or paraphrasing biggrin

Here is a link to a battle report using a new WW2 ruleset written by Rick Priestley....they are using 28mm miniatures, but 20mm would work just as well.

I see Andy has British and German 20mm, Banksi has 20mm Yanks, you have a load of unpainted 15mm FoW.

Gerry has a lot of 20mm and 28mm stuff.

And Jack McB was planning to also get into FoW.

And you have the IABSM rules....is it the 3rd edition ?

No point in shouting, Gerry has left the building. wink

Would like to join in the odd game now and then...but used to play a lot of WW2...gave all my 20mm Airfix stuff away.

Rapid Fire used to be the favourite WW2 rule set at the club.

Except when playing 1/300 scale then it was WRG.

I'm not dissing IABSM but normally I try to come up with a cunning plan (Not involving turnips) with my armies but with IABSM you have to fight against the cards before you hit the enemy, talk about a war on two fronts. biggrin

Hi

There's at least two players in the club who actualy need to move into contact before they start blaming the cards.

Having played IABSM I would say it works best in small "a few platoons each" sized battles. Like ROE. Especially in the club. Each turn is meant to represent only a few moments. With a scenario behind it and an Umpire to guide the cards give a feeling of a story opening up infront of you - the unpredictability you give the orders but the men may not follow in good time or at all. You may have a gods eye view but certain units never go when you want them.

It is different and requires different thinking strategy - you soon pick up how long should you keep the units under blinds. When the big men should be activating or more often taking off shock!! Once the units in shooting range (9" I beleive) of the enemy they fire whether their card activated or not.

Now now its the festive week - good will and all that.
Who knows maybe they will make a New Years Resolution!!
