SB5 Monthly Update 16/4/17

Hello and Happy Easter!

Another update to let you know of what we've been getting on with

March to War

I recently took part in an event at my local Games Workshop store, where individuals had to pledge to complete a project, starting in January, of their choosing, It could be as big or as little as they wanted, but it had be completed by the 31st of March (hence the 'March' in 'March to War', clever Gdub)

I had 2 projects I wanted to complete. Firstly A Freeguild/Empire army for Age of Sigmar, Which consisted of: A General
                     10 Greatswords
                     30 Swordsmen
                     20 Crossbowmen
                     5 Outriders
                     and a Warrior Priest

My Freeguild Army - The Unbound Sons

 Second was an Imperial Guard Platoon, I used Elysian models for these guys as I love the look of them. The Platoon Consisted of: 5 man Command Squad
                                                     3x 10 man Infantry Squads
                                                     Missile Launcher Squad
                                                     Heavy Bolter Squad
                                                     Special Weapon Squad with Demolition Charges
                                                     A Taurox
                                                     2 Elysian Tauros'
                                                     2 Elysian Drop-Sentinals
Introducing the Kerysian Critical Asset Recovery Division  

I'm proud to say I completed them with a few days in hand!

Line Of Battle

New Super-Campaign

Hot off the heels of his last one, Ed is planning a new Super-Campaign, this time focusing on the Spring Offensive in 1918. This focuses on a series of German attacks against the Western front as a last ditch attempt to win the war. It going to be a lot of fun to do and we'll keep you updated as it progresses

Line of Battle

They're always closer than you think.
Today I unveil a project I've been working on for several years: Line of Battle.  This is a universal set of wargaming rules for large scale line battles between 1600 and 1914, and I'll be putting them up for sale from today.  Read on for details about the game, as well as how to get a free copy for yourself!

What is Line of Battle?

It's a set of rules for historical wargames that we have developed over the last three years.  The concept was inspired by other big-battle rules, like Warmaster and Give Them The Cold Steel, and it has been developed from a set of house rules and amendments to become a completely unique rules system.  Almost every 2mm or 6mm game you have seen on this blog since 2015 has probably been one iteration or another of Line of Battle.
