5.0 out of 5 stars Love Vikings, not keen n Amazon, 7 Mar 2014
Vikings goes from strength to strength.The Amazon version of Lovefilm, however, is just NOT user friendly and is far too clumsy. Selection of films/episodes was much easier with the old format as was giving feedback.


A World Aflame: Interwar Wargame Rules 1918-39 (Osprey Wargames)
A World Aflame: Interwar Wargame Rules 1918-39 (Osprey Wargames)
by Paul Eaglestone
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.79

4.0 out of 5 stars The label says it..., 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This short book of rules does exactly what it sets out to do and,as far as I'm concerned, was excellent value for my money. It provides some rules and basic scenarios and leaves the rest to you, unlike certain rulesets which try in vain to prescribe solutions for every possible permutation of events, thus insulting the our intelligence and attempting to curb our imagination.

Another great episode from Bernard Cornwell - he and Uhtred may be Sais but I love this series of books and his earlier Arthurian saga. Please keep them coming!

This is an excellent little book which encourages play rather than constant referral to charts etc. I recommend it to anyone interested in gaming this era.

This book provides exactly what it says on the cover. Basic but very useful work. Some nice plates and good outline of the history of the period.

3.0 out of 5 stars Consider the date, 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an adequate work but was not really what I was looking for. My own fault for not considering the era covered more carefully. I want more information on the legionaries of the late republic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Price Rip Off?, 22 May 2013
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
These figures are, as is the case for most of this manufacturer's products,excellent but don't be ripped off by this seller - this item is only 29.50 if bought direct from Warlord Games who also do their own multi-buy deals

= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best price I have seen for this set and the figures themselves are of a very good quality too. The centurion's helmet plume is probably not correct for this period but just trim it off. Well done Wargames Factory and very well done 3v.Wargames for delivering such a good product at such a good price!


Napoleonic Artillery
Napoleonic Artillery

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 12 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Napoleonic Artillery (Hardcover)
The title says it all really. I can't claim to have read it from cover to cover - yet! - but this book seems to do what it promises, being a comprehensive guide to the subject, its technical and historical development up to that period in time. I would appreciate more, especially diagrams/illustrations of Prussian trains and limbers etc post 1808 but that is my particular interest as a wargamer and model maker.
