Yesterday I got along to a 28mm DBA day at the Auckland Wargames Club. It had a loose campaign structure and ended in a BBDBA battle:

Nice to see 28mm DBA – more's the pity here in Canberra it's all 15mm. Hence my move across to WAB, CoE and Hail Caesar.

Good AAR's, thanks Mark.

Actually, I've only got 15mm armies, but most of the other gamers here play bigger games with 28mm. I'm happy to play any scale if someone will provide the armies.

I have a whole bunch of Ancient Greeks plus Saxons and Vikings in 28mm I intend to paint up for DBA. The trick for me will be basing them so I can use them for individual skirmish plus DBA.

That is a trick. I was thinking how I'd do that for some HOTT figures, but haven't thought how.

Rare earth magnets inlaid into the bases over sheet metal under bases cut to size might work.

Excuse me, Mark and Doug; how far do you guys travel for a war game, usually?

Mark Davies Inactive Member22 Jun 2011 11:25 a.m. PST

About 20 minutes to the local club.

That not far at all.

I travelled 3000km though, which was a bit of a hike, but it was worth it. My take on the day is here… link

Wow, Australia to New Zealand that's a fair distance, very nice battle reports. The farthest I've traveled for one game was a little over 200 miles.
