Vintage WWII Posters

A nice touch that can make your WWI and WWII terrain more realistic is to put posters on the walls of your buildings. What you need to do is find a site that has pictures of such posters and save the images using your web browser’s “save image as” option. Then you can resize the image using a paint program — or even a decent word processor (import the image into a blank page, then reasize it by grabbing the handles. Once you have the proper size for your figure scale, print it out with a color inkjet.

All you need to do is find the right site. Fortunately, I’ve done that for you. It’s here.

Fantasy Warriors rules

I own a copy of the original Grenadier Fantasy Warriors boxed set. In fact, all the dwarf and orc miniatures that came with it are still unpainted and on their sprues. (I already had hordes of Games Workshop orc and dwarves and simply played with those).

The game had a lot to recommend it: the figures were great, they were a good bargain, and the rules were a marked departure from Games Workshop. What we liked most about the rules was the emphasis on command, rather than on individual super figures. Sadly, however, it’s been out of print for many years.

Now you can get the original rules as a download here. As for the figures, I understand that there is an italian company that produces them, but I’ve had no success in finding them.

Internet Medieval Sourcebook

The Internet Medieval Sourcebook is a fantastic resource for miniature wargamers. I’ve had this one in my bookmarks for several years and haven’t even begun to plumb its depths. The section on the Crusades is particularly useful.
