Well that was easy. I said BFaS and Kal jumped right in. Now I think at some point he may have tried to get me into BFaS. I was too pig headed, mean, or dumb to actual check it out. Now that I have, I am the asshole.
I am hosting the first game. The FPs were close enough. No advantages either side. I think we played on too large a table. I ran with 6x4. It should have been something like 100cm by 100cm. Or a 4 by 4.
I continue with my standard of taking little to no pictures.
The shit we missed or cheated each other on;
* Table size, gaming area, it should have been a 4 x4. We played on a 6 x 4. This larger area screwed with the ability to command our armies. The command range and number of command elements created situation where unit remained out of command for most of the game.
* Both of us are long term NetEpic players. So when it came to the end of combat resolution, we wanted to dice off. There is no dice off in BFaS. The cumulative result from combat is all that determine who wins.
* MM and SM penalties. We started off charging 10cm. It should have been 5cm.
* Command Range; We started with only 20cm radius. It should have been 40cm for the Gen and 20 for the Lt.
Questions during the game.
1.) If an enemy charges through your line of sight and you have a charge order, can you intercept (with a counter charge)? The unit counter charging is not the target of the charge.j
So when you have a charge order...you declare a target for that charge...if that target for your charge has a charge order, then it may counter charge as a response. Now that isnt to say that a unit of yours with a charge order could not intercept on its turn a charging unit that failed to connect with a charge on its initial move before the additional charge move that turn.
Counter charge can only be done by the target of a charge, if that unit has a charge order and did not yet start its charge. If another unit crosses your front to charge another unit, you can then charge that unit. If you contact it before it contacts your other unit, and it can not partly move on (only open order) then that charging unit will not contact its original target. If you contacted the unit in flank or rear, then the charging unit's (initial charger) order changes to movement.
2.) A unit of Dragoons shoots a unit of Gonullu, armor 2 Vs effectiveness 3. Save or no save?
* No save

The last 5 years of his life there was nothing left to buy. He had everything, barring those super extremely rare items. Dad started buying items sort of related. Stuff like art and signatures and primary source correspondence.
Now I am there. I have everything for Epic and its painted. The same for Warmaster. Well, I am currently painting the Lizardmen and Ancients being Ancients are never truly finished. But there is a hybrid system of the two.....By Fire and Sword!
You become so use to search and buying shit. When you run out of that shit to buy. Its like losing a friend. What do you do? Your an addict! Well you find a new drug. And I have only play a demo. WTF?Yearly goal. No collection buying. Failure.

The original plan was to buy used painted Pike and Shot armies. Then rebase them for BFAS. The plan is there is no plan. I am a horder and an addict. So I grabbed these at 40% of retail. And now I have to paint them at some point.

All last week I had been de-basing, re-basing, washing, sealing, and flocking like a nutter. Easily went thru 100 new bases and 2 cans of sealer. Once this final push was done, all the bases had been done. I would have only command stand flags and the CSA cavalry. Everything was going just fine. I would finish Friday. Then the wife came home early from work. The kid had a half day. That school is useless! And I got cheated. I was so close to being done.
These are the last 35 that need flocking. 35 short of being done.

By Fire and Sword
While I am rebasing the RF&F. I hope to start rebasing the INF for BFAS. There they lay in neat rows awaiting bases.
I sent Staples the "Republic in Flames" pdf for printing. Luckily the company is paying. It was 162 for color heavy weight paper.
Marauder Industries printed me up some counters. 10 of each for 10 with shipping. Disordered, Flight, and Reload.
Update; While waiting for shit to happen the dudes got based, washed, and pasted.
Dragoons, Musketeers, Merc Command
Armored and non armored Pike

"Aftermath", I was worried it would take me into next quarter to finish. Now I will finish this week. That will leave only the Cavalry to finish.

With the delivery of more storage cases and the Aftermath's sorting, something don't add up? I will have to start a recounting of bases. I don't know/think my count is correct.All of these are rebases. Some were washed, most. Then flocking.

I will be going. The hotel is pretty sweet. Sadly there are no rooms for me. Better for me I will be staying on points. Even better the family will tag along. There is plenty to do in Nashville for them.
I know Pat and some of his group are coming from St Louis. I will be there with some armies and and enough terrain for 2 tables. Pat and myself plan on pick up games. I will bring Epic and a Skirmish force of BFAS also.

Southern Cav is with me this week. The horses are done. I need to bang out the riders while on the road.
All of these misc pieces parts have been inked and sealed. I normally don't take the flock on the road. I am just not finding the time on the weekends to get it done. So I am going to make a mess in the hotel room!
In the wake of the "Aftermath," the rebasing has kicked off again. I got this bunch rebased and sealed. They are nly waiting on flocking.
The next group is on the table for basing. There is a problem. Some, well half of the little bastards are leaning forward. They are leaning so much so that I need to create some thing to support them as the glue dries. Otherwise they fall over right away.
