Chain Reaction Rule Test 1

I'll be running a little skirmish game tomorrow to playtest the Chain Reaction 3.0 rules available from Two Hour Wargames as a free download.

I'm just reading through the rule set now and making a few notes, trying to a get a better idea of the game mechanics. I'll be using the few painted figures I have along with the unpainted ones I have on the painting table (probably a 12 man skirmish). I'll take a few photos and provide some kind of battle report.

Painting Update

In the last couple of days, I've managed to paint 3 rebel figures and they've been thoroughly enjoyable!

Pictures will come next week when I've finished some more rebels and properly based them and hopefully some more government forces too!

I might make this project a little broader so it covers the period from 1912 right up until 1938 so I can fight all sorts of mini internal wars including VBCW. Doing this project has drawn me towards other periods I'd not previously thought of doing such as the Spanish Civil War and Operation Sealion because of the cross over of figures (and therefore, money savings!).

These will have to wait however because I'm really getting into this alternate ECW. I currently have regular infantry, naval troops and policemen for my government forces but am severly lacking in the rebel department. The next purchase for my rebel army will be an armoured car to give them some much needed support. I'm thinking of this one from Force of Arms...

Foundry Assyrians for sale

I've just listed some of my Assyrians on eBay. I don't have the time to paint them and will probably never get round to it. There are four Foundry regiments which you can find using this link and all are reasonably priced.
