If you have the rules just make sure you follow the force composition requirements for a 24 point army.

If you don’t have the rules you can look at mine this Saturday. 

Someone had a PDF version too. Clark maybe?

Sylvain,

Where can I buy the DVDs of the first 250 issues?   There are many excellent issues in that collection.

The Wargames Illustrated supplements is not available out of any sites, I just purchased it and scanned it :-)
This is the only WI I purchased in a long time (I have the DVDs of the first 250 editions though) as the content is too focus on British/Anzac dominions rulesets
The Siege PDF is a free PDF from one of their sites

Re: Lion Rampant Tournament

JC
 

Thanks Bob.   Good of you to offer.    I have a lot of the old WI.   

After Warlord Games (or whoever commercial it is that owns them now) took them over, the content really deteriorated.  It is all about some company touting its new figure line, or a designer spouting off about his new rule set, or a glossy pictorial on a recent Con.   

I think Sylvain also hit the nail when he said the content has become much more British oriented (since that is where they get most of their advertisers from).  Yes, it was always, being a UK production, rather Brit predominant, but nowadays it is really British content ++.

Before this there were always scenarios or rules for a campaign, or a series on how to paint some army, or an actual home brew rule set, etc.  i.e useful articles to the ordinary wargamer.   Now it is just commercial flim flam by and large.

HMGS Pacific South West - Miniwars 2018

JC
 

Hi,



Here is the PEL (Preliminary Events List) for the HMGS Pacific South West Fall Convention to be held on the campus of Cal State Fullerton University on Saturday October 13th and Sunday October 14th.   Quite a wide list of stuff.
Fullerton is a suburb of LA, roughly south east of LA itself.   The campus is quite accessible off the 57 (?) freeway - I think I got the number correct!
Arizona is technically part of HMGS-PSW, although I am not sure there has ever been a HMGS event here.   We do have a representative but he is inactive AFAIK.

Board Gaming Saturday
The Wargame Bootcamp was formed in 2006 at the Strategicon game convention in Los Angeles by a group of wargamers.
We looked around the gaming convention and saw hundreds of Eurogames being played. Yet only a small handful of wargames were present. When we started asking people why they would not play wargames, we found out that most people thought the wargames were a) too hard and b) took too long to play. We decided to change that. Wargame Bootcamp was started in order to teach people how to play wargames and to show other gamers that there are easy, quick wargames out there. We invite all beginners and experienced players to learn new and classic war games. The average player will learn in approximately an hour and a half. The range of titles is wide and covers from the newest to the most classic of war games.

There will be a Flea Market at Mini-Wars 2018 from 9:00AM to 6:00PM on Saturday and Sunday. Flea Market vendors will need to buy admission into the convention. There are 4 tables available in one hour time blocks. Their sizes are: 3 at 6’ x 30” and one is roughly 10' x 30" and are available in the following formats:
1/2 table (~30"x30" square) - $2 for 1 hour, $3 for 2 hours
Full table (30"x6') - $5 for 2 hours.
Grand Table (30"x10') - $8 for two hours
The rules:
• No mass stock of new product - this is for you to conveniently offload unwanted hobby items. Single examples of new items you bought for yourself but never got to are fine
• If one of the fine merchants selling at our convention has the product, please use discretion and not compete with them
• If there’s a waiting list, then the 2-hour limit will be enforced. You’ll be able to get back in line.
• As this is open to the public, please use discretion in what products you want to sell.
• You don’t have enough for a full table? Or, you’re running a game? Check with Tom first and, if space is available we can combine items into an area. Normal table rates apply plus 10% sales proceeds go to the club to pay for Tom Seeling's time.
