  1. I haven't received a reply. He did mention a while back that he was recovering from an illness so I hope he is well. I dunno if anyone has a direct email for him and can mail him?
  2. Cool link, thanks @John KettlerMore stuff to overload my groaning shelves with.
  3. I've just finished Tal Malah. Great battle, sent innumerable takfiris to their virgins. I really like playing the Syrians. This was much better than Red v Red QBs. Although I felt the first stages of the battle went well, as it wore on, my forces were getting attrited, and a few mistakes, coupled with low ammo meant that I was worried about being over-run, especially as it seemed there were some Jihadi reinforcements coming into play. So I was surprised when the victory screen came up. An SAA total victory. The addition of armour, arty made the uncons a force to be reckoned with
  4. I sent @Liveloada PM a few days ago - I have not received a reply. I noticed he hasn't been active since July and I hope he is alright. Has anybody heard anything? Maybe he is just taking a break from gaming but we live in uncertain times.
  5. This is the latest version V1.5 https://www.mediafire.com/file/26f8badl6d9rdan/file
  6. Those look great. I will grab them soon. And thanks for posing them on one of my burnt buildings.
  7. Actually we did have a virtual gaming con at the weekend. I played DnD with some of my old friends (using Roll20 and Discord - which worked quite well). Then we went down the "virtual pub" - basically gabbing away on discord, with various people dropping in and out, while drinking. It was almost like being in the bar together, although not quite. I really want to get back to RL. Although I am not the most sociable of people, it's really put that into perspective.
  8. Yes @Vacilllatoryou are absolutely right. As a castle afficionado, I always have had that one on my "to do" list. Not to mention popping into the citadel at Aleppo, the amphitheatre at Palmyra, etc. Sadly it looks like I am not going to be able to tick it off my list, given the current state of things in Syria. A masterpiece of a castle.
  9. It is my understanding that has been happening for decades- because the Chinese audience is so large, and action films not reliant on dialogue go down well (Schwartzeneggar etc) so revenue comes more from East than USA that these films are made. @Erwinis there anywhere we can see the film or a trailer?
  10. The Houthis seem to be the Vietnamese de nos jours - highly ingenious and adaptable - ever seen an AA missile repurposed as a SAM on a technical (yes the range is reduced). The Houthi Art of War: Why They Keep Winning in Yemen
  11. I stumbled across this in YT. Had to share it with you. I assume it is from some chinese feature film. Makes James Bond look realistic 🤣 Anyway, you may enjoy it.
  12. Ah! Thanks. I agree, a remake could be a good idea.
  13. Is it a military flight sim like IL-2 or a tactical wargame?
  14. I have always found that appropriate music really makes a good game better. I have GMed a lot of roleplaying games, and for a long time I have tried to have soundtracks ready on my computer to play when needed. I invented some "home brew" games set in the Second World War or its aftermath (Nazi Hunters - track down a fugitive Nazi and bring him to justice - players really enjoy that). For example most players don't know what the Horst Wessel Song is, but they viscerally know it is a Nazi anthem. Siegfried's Rhine Journey is better music, but it is indelibly associated with war and WW2 thr
  15. I've managed now to upload to Imgur and can post images. No idea why this site won't accept Mediafire. Only a year late! I should be preparing to go to two games conventions and fit Hadrian's Wall in between. COVID-19 sucks. This is the Scottish Reiver's view. The front wall does seem awfully low. Drinking designer beer that Ian (hat) had kindly brought, playing Bruges on a lovely afternoon, with an affectionate and daffy dog around. I'm holding the cards. The side of the castle by infrared light. The main gaming area was in the ballroom on the first floor with
