NOTES: The group plays all major periods from ancients to WWII using Armati, Shako, Fire & Fury, Spearhead, Crossfire, and a colonial rule system that we are developing for future publication. We play Spearhead using 20mm fig/models and extend ranges by 50%. All European fronts are represented in our collections from 1940 France to all stages of the eastern front and 1944-5 in the west. Playing in 20mm does force us to fight smaller actions but this suits our gaming schedule which restricts play to 3 hours in the evening.
