I have remembered how to post from my own iPhoto library. Here my HoW armies having a go at Tin Soldiers in Action at Liverpool Wargames club. Still think HoW is best SYW rules, but will continue to use TSiA for solo play as it is card driven, providing a nice bit of randomisation .
They do look a treat. I like the relaxed look of the horses, the officer pointing, presumably saying, “I think the Allemandes are over there,” whilst a couple of troopers check that their carbines are ready to fire.
I agree with the latter statement. I have found a general set of horse and musket rules (1689 - 1914) which give a good game once you can get your head round the rules. They are German but have been translated into English, but not by a professional translator I would surmise, as they are not in English idiom (this despite being published by Caliver in Nottingham as a hardback 250+ page book). They are very much of the toolbox variety (the core rules only cover 30 pages), covering such a large timescale, but they are particularly good for solo play and really require no tinkering once you have selected the options for the sub period you are playing in.
I would be quite happy to continue posting AARs but as I have mentioned in the Photo board I have changed to using flickr and can’t work out how to get the photos onto this site.
I used to post my photos from Photobucket, until they started playing silly beggars. I now use Flickr and am posting successfully to two other fora. However, when I post them the image url is enormous and has to be shortened at both ends by deleting sections of the url to enable the photo to appear. On the system on this site when I paste the url I am then unable to shorten it and consequently only the blue box with the white question mark appears. Does anyone else use Flickr to post to this site, and if so how is it done?
