Basic Battles expansion

Post by stecal on Thu Aug 17, 2017 7:18 pm

Saw this notice on Facebook. Surprised it was not repeated here.

Free PDF expansion for BI2 for the Renaissance and Colonial Wars. Out in Sept.

Looking forward to it, esp. the Colonial Era rules.

Cool - wonder what's the factor for a "gattling gun" at short range??

Definitely will be looking out for this.

Cheers Jez

Good news!

Any thoughts on how the ACW figures will be based for 15mm?

who is Admin? Rolling Eyes

ACW basing will be basically as you like. I have my 10mm ACW for Fire and Fury and will use as they are, with maybe 3 or 5 bases per brigade according to size of the game. Measure are according to frontage.

Anyway the "suggested" basing is like Basic Impetus. I suggest to split into 2 bases 6cm frontage for 28mm. Probably I will go not with 2 but with 3 bases per Unit (6x4cm), so a 18cm frontage. But this is a personal choice.
Smaller bases of 6cm (depth 3 or 4) is what I suggest for 28mm.

From the FB group - Basic Battle update. I'm completing the sample lists. So far I have done 2 for ECW, 2 for Napoleonic, 2 for ACW and I'm working on Zulus and British. I would like to add few more. I have still to work at the layout and I cannot count in the week end, so be patient, it will take few more days. So I plan to release on October 4 or 5.

Just downloaded them - can't wait to try them. Luckily bought some painted British Zulu war figures a few weeks ago so now incentive to finish my Zulu force to oppose them.
