Larry was kind enough to spend more than a few hours helping (training) me to repair all the belt buckle scratches and other sundry nicks and gouges that the table has acquired over the past few years. 

We finished up today and I must say that the table looks almost new again. Larry really knows his stuff. 

Thank you Larry.

Re: Volley fire markers

 

There was a recent TMP post about them.  Very very slow.. sometimes a year. No updates, and lack of responsiveness to calls or emails. Search TMP for them.

The Marengo battlefield is roughly 4 x 6 so that works fine. For the naval games I have used several matts to cover the table and that has worked well. I have some city matts that link up to make a bigger playing area.

Have you found a company that actually makes game mats big enough to fit your table?   They all seem to think that 4’ x 6’ is what everyone plays on.

That’s a good sized table. Bigger than mine.

The table in my war room is 6’ x 14.5’ with a 5.5‘ x 14’ playing surface.

Re: Volley fire markers

 

Colonials was my first miniatures love after Napoleonics. I have a bunch of NWF 28mm Pathans and Imperial troops that I used to introduce colonials to the wargaming club I belonged to in England. They really got into the sword and the flame.

And I live in Sierra Vista just over an hour from Tucson, depending on where you live.

I do colonials in 25/28 mm. Zulu's, NW Frontier, North Africa. Got it all.  Even some Americans with elephant Gating guns. Sand Table. No 54's, to big to get the good scale right. Check out the Photo albums. Ithink I posted some pice of a few games.

Colonel Rexford,

I only paint 28mm with the exception of World war 2 that I have in 15s and 28s
I have painted the following:
Spanish conquest of the americas
Pirates 
Dark Africa
French intervention in Mexico. 

I am currently painting American Revolution (sone consider it colonials)
Then I will paint Indian mutiny. But that will not be before January. 

My colonials are individually based and I play the sword of the flame. 

I would play any colonial rules

That’s a good sized table. Bigger than mine.

The table in my war room is 6’ x 14.5’ with a 5.5‘ x 14’ playing surface.

Greetings! I'm curious to see how many of you are using 54mm or 1/32 scale and also if there is any interest in colonial wargames?

The Marengo battlefield is roughly 4 x 6 so that works fine. For the naval games I have used several matts to cover the table and that has worked well. I have some city matts that link up to make a bigger playing area.
