Mike
Good to hear from you. 
I checked the website about tabletop cp
Which subscription do we need ?
Can you play with miniatures ?

Thank you 

Sylvain

Hello Michael,

If you are interested in Sharp Practice and aren't familiar with "Tabletop CP" on YouTube you need to go there, as they have extensive game play of Sharp Practice, Chain of Command and others. 


If you are interested I can start up an online game whenever you are ready. Please let me know.

John, thank you for the advice! I am definitely looking forward to playing for a few meetings and getting to see the other aspects of miniature gaming. 
I have definitely felt the toy soldier effect as well as the history aspect. I've been burning through books related to the AWI and Napoleonic campaigns.

Michael, I have been thoroughly enjoying the 2nd edition of black powder. Have you ever played "Sharp Practice?" I've been using it to play small skirmishes with the family over the holidays and have found it quite fun.

Thank you all,
I hope to meet in 2021,

Those pictures are great

Re: Rank and File Rules uploaded

Bob
 

Also, since I’m planning to use “Rank & File” with my Clive project I already have a hard copy and some laminated QRS sheets. 

The supplemental and optional rules are contained in the rule book. 

I like them because they are easy to learn and retain while staying consistent through all the phases. They manage quite well without a bunch of “special” rules or gimmicks.  I get an old school vibe from them. 

So, in my mind Sylvain’s first choice of rules is a good one.

Re: Hello there!

Sylvain Durand
 

Aslan,

Another good source to learn is YouTube 
I usually put YouTube in the background when I paint. They have some very good documentaries about the AWI and the civil war. They usually come from the history channel before they started specializing in the aliens building pyramids. 
I have not listened any napoleonic videos as I have studied them extensively in my youth. 

Let me know if you want me to send you some links.

Re: Hello there!

Michael M
 

Like John, I have been forced to stay away from the meetings due to the fact that my wife is in a high risk category.  I'm hoping to get back into it soon, because it is a very enjoyable group and I enjoy the games we put on the table.  In the meantime, I have been putting the time to good use painting up some new armies with which to game.  My current projects are 15mm Louis XIV era (late 17th century) and 28mm French to add to my AWI collection.

When I joined the group, I introduced it to the "Black Powder" first edition rules although we later began gaming with the second edition rules.  I put on an AWI scenario and a couple of War of 1812 scenarios using those rules.  I also hosted a hypothetical battle between the U.S. and Spain in the mid-1790s using the "Mad Anthony Wayne" figures from Old Glory and a period Spanish Army I had painted using figures from a number of different sources.  So I definitely share your interest in the horse and musket/black powder games.

We have the benefit of a wide variety of interests, so you will have the opportunity to do everything from Ancients to Modern.  This group has a number of historical periods covered.  Sylvain puts on a good game (with some very nicely painted figures), so his game on the 16th will be a nice introduction to our games.

I hope - COVID willing - to see you and the rest of the group soon.

Hi Aslan,

Welcome to the group.   I and a couple of others are currently staying away from the meetings because of COVID, but later in 2021 I am sure we will meet up.   

Wargamers are a bit mixed in terms of personalities, like any group, but the key question after a game is "Did you have fun??"   

There are 3 elements to historical miniature gaming - (1) the toy soldier effect which we often have a love for from our childhood - this is where the collecting, assembling and painting come in, (2) the history - which is why people often buy military history books or go on the web, to flesh out their understanding of a particular battle or campaign, and (3) the competitive side where you want to win the particular game/scenario.   For most people it is a mix of all three.

Do come and play for a few meetings.   You need to see different games with different rules to get a real appreciation of the hobby before deciding if it is for you.

You can ask any question you have here;.  Someone will know the answer.

Hello! 
I'm new in town so I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Aslan, and I've been wanting to join a group for some time. I've been collecting and painting for two years, but I haven't had a ton of people to play with where I'm from, so when I moved to Phoenix I thought it would be a great opportunity to find a group and start to play and get to know people. I reached out to Bob, and he let me know that I should introduce myself on here, so here I am!

I'm 18, so rather young, and I'm still very much learning about the world of historical minis and wargaming. This is the first time I've ever really reached out to other wargamers and mini collectors, so I'm very excited. So far I only have troops in 28mm. I love anything black powder currently have armies for British and French Napoleonic, and well as American and British AWI. I also recently got the Bolt Action starter pack kit from Warlord, and have been enjoying putting those sprues together. I'm looking forward to expanding into new time periods soon! I'm still very new to the hobby, and any advice or tips would be much appreciated. I'm also a pretty big D&D fan or any roleplaying system, so if anyone is looking for another player or DM, please reach out.
When I'm not working on minis I study Journalism and Criminology at ASU.

Hopefully, I'll be coming to an event soon, I'm shooting for Sylvain's AWI rule test on the 16th. I'm out of town until the 5th visiting family for the holidays, but I cant wait to get back and come to an event.

Thank you all, hope to be playing with you soon.
