WTNW German Capitol Unit - Zyklops

The SRP should be around $35.00 USD for this model.
Here is a picture of the Zyklops aside a 15mm model and
aside a 28mm model. As you can see the design will work
for either scale. Pictures with rivets and landings etc will
be available as I get them. There will also be two more
guns in sponsons (all sponsons move).\

Cambrai, 1917 By:Megablitz and more

As I mentioned in my earlier post 'Landships', my WW1
tanks were painted very quickly for use in a game. I
can't remember much detail of it so I'll let you try to
figure it out from the photos. To save your eyes, there
are no fewer than 19 tanks on the table at the start of
the game! My three are in the middle (identifiable by
the white/red/white flashes on the front). Those at
the far end may look like 15mm toys but they're just
far away. Honest.

This was my old Cambrai game, each infantry base represents
a battalion, and IIRC each tank model roughly 30 real tanks.

The game covered the first day of the Cambrai and a frontage
of 12,000 yards. Six British infntry divisions supported by three
cavalry divisions vs two unlucky divisions of German defenders.

As in the historical battle, German artilery firing direct from Bourlon
Wood proved an unpleasant anti-tank obstacle, but as I recall elements
of the cavalry did make it to the 'green fields beyond'.

Tanks are a mixture of Airfix, Emhar and some metal ones (maybe
Minifigs?). Infantry are Emhar, Revell and HaT. The troops further
away are indeed 15mm, but they are further away so obviously they
look smaller.

It seemed sensible at the time:)

Landships BY: Megablitz and more

A few weeks ago Tim mentioned* his trio of very elderly WW1
tanks and promised some photos. These three are all basically
the Airfix MkI but without the ridiculous steering gear.

WTNW: Skirmish & Small Unit Tactics

Armchairgeneral playtested some of the WTNW:
Skirmish & Small Unit Tactics rules. This is WTNW
for 28mm small unit engagements. he have worked
up some different mechanics (as he believes you
should not just keep producing the same rules and
changing the genre) to better facilitate skirmish
level engagements including mechanics for unit
leaders, skirmishing, and damage based on
weapons. Several changes were made to the
game during the playtest.
