A while back I made my 6mm FUBAR settlement and called it Anvil Gate.
I have played one game with it which involved lots of military types converging on this civilian settlement and causing havoc.

AAR of that game here:

Since then the civilians there have upgraded their home.
They have added two reinforced doors in the form of trucks with armoured plates welded on them.
They have purchased some body armour and assault rifles.

AND they have even made a sign!

This is the before:

These are the trucks; the basic models are from Brigade Models.
The doors and supports and bits and bobs are scratch built from bits of tat in true Anvil Gate fashion.

Oh, I have painted some more civilians too.

Anvil Gate, the settlement that grows between games!

That is a great looking settlement! I'm jealous!

Good work, as ever. Who/what/how are the civvy minis?

Cheers, Rob.

Really awesome settlement Michael. It's stuff like that that really tempts me to 6mm. It's portable, it looks good, and it really looks like a complete settlement with all the fixins.

Keep it up!

BUT! I bet you'll start hitting that problem that plagues every town/city/settlement… how will the thing continue to grow? Looks like it's starting to burst at the seams!

Looking better every time I see it. Thank you for sharing.

Michael,

Anvil Gate is wonderful. I also like your recent post about expanding the activities of the ECM. Your previous AAR and all the things you have posted has (as "Peggy" in the credit card commercial here says) inspired me. I have a 15-20 6mm armies with about 40 bases each. I have been playing at a higher operational level and things have sort of petered out due to dissatisfaction with the games. I am going to convert to FUBAR and start a similar series of games. Please forgive me. I wont call my guys the ECM and BPI but I am going to steal your concepts and convert a number of other armies.

Good work, as ever. Who/what/how are the civvy minis?

ta!
They are all Irregular Miniatures.
Half are from a single strip of the 20th century civilians, the others are a mixture of their Napoleonic and WWI & WWII sappers.
Sappers are great as miners and so on as they have big clothes and tools.

Adding Orange to any figure helps make it look modern, not a lot of orange around back in the days of olde so it can transform a figure.


BUT! I bet you'll start hitting that problem that plagues every town/city/settlement… how will the thing continue to grow? Looks like it's starting to burst at the seams!

There is that, but the planet they are on is still a first generation world so it will be a long time before anyone from outside joins and almost as long before this lot have any children as they have only been there a couple of years at most.


I am flattered Allen57.

I moved out of 6mm Napoleonics due to the amount of figures needed to make a new unit.
I tried FWC and that was good but for me just a Napoleonic game with modern looking pieces, it is still a big army game with battalions and so on after all.
FUBAR was just the ticket.
Simple, easy, quick and a fraction of the models.
The core mechanics allow for easy tweaks and are suitable for solo play due to the fog of war mechanic.

As a mostly solo gamer the whole narrative/blog allows me to indulge in the hobby when I am not able to paint or play.
I am still playing scenarios in my mind!

Anvil Gate (name stolen from Gears of War) will grow as the games are played and it will be interesting to see what happens I think.

Dude – this is awesome. Totally inspiring. We are playing another FUBAR game tonight, so I'll be sharing the link to this post with the gang.

Which strip of civilians from Irregular?

Angel Barracks26 Jan 2012 8:39 a.m. PST

CV11 the 20th Century ones.
They are a pain to hack up though and get off the strip.

Oooh yay a game!
