Yes, it's a great site ...

For those who may have missed it, this was the January headline on GW ...

For January 2005 ... It's Garden Wargaming from Kowloon to Cologne!

Thanks for reminding us, Stéphane!

All the best,
Richard

I do not know, Stéphane ...

However, you can email Jeff Herbet at [email protected]. He is the secretary of the Hong Kong group and he wrote the article. He is also a very nice person and I am sure that he would be happy to help you.

All the best,
Richard

Stephane - thanks so much for sharing that with us. That is exactly the type of thing we want to see, and hopefully participate in, on this forum!

The photos are magnificent - what a great ideo to mount the klickies on bases.

I'm realy surprise that some of you don't know DBR palying miniature system.
Here you couls see my own site with rules and historics senari for these rules. You could found some other miniatures rules for little armies call "Stratégiqué" (one for antiquity/medieval, one other for Renaissance battles)

But if you prefer read english :mrgreen: you could found lot of think about this type of rules here.
Good surf on the web ;)

Stéphane ready to build my own army  :twisted:

Thank you for the link to your website Stéphane ...

Lots of good information about DBA!

I especially enjoyed your la galerie.
 
I am sure that your site will give all of us some new ideas about what we can do with our Playmobil.

Je pense about how fantastique it would be to have une armée de Playmobil Chinoise!

Gracias, otra vez ,,,

All the best,
Richard

Our attempts at DBA with Playmobil

A friend and I had a go at Agincourt w/ DBA rules.



The troops are not historical by any stretch but the large scale was a lot of fun. The English are based in blue and the French bases are clear. We used museum putty to afix the Clickies so that they could be removed,  repurposed, and stored easily. I would have to dig up the bases to give you the sizing but it was not hard to work out. I bought the bases at TAP Plastics and had them do the cutting.

Additional terrain pieces have been collected since but I have only staged one other battle with the troops. The second battle was with Mike Siggins during one of his visits. He is not a DBA fan and was appalled by my lack of artistry but he also thought the scale was fun and that Playmobil figures  had a lot of charm.



Complete list of pics is here.

Hey gcab - thanks for the photos. They look great. The bases seem like they'd be pretty easy to make or get, and the game seems like a lot of fun. I am not familiar with DBA - are the rules complicated?

Not at all. It's very easy to start to play at DBA (DBR and other rules from  this family) in few minutes and one first play (about 20-30 minutes). The principles are simple: You roll a dice (6 side one). The dice number is the order's number you could do this turn.
You move your army's elements until contact or not and you resolve your fight with one dice. The gamer who do the greatest number do recoiled the ennemy's element. If the core is double than his ennemy, the ennemy's element is destroyed. These is the principles of this rules: so simple but so strategic one ;)
I hope, my explanations are understandable. But it's very easy to found the rules in english anywhere.

Although I have tried one `skirmish,´using the very simple rules found at Playmobil Battles, I don`t know much about wargaming.

    I see from the photos that two mounted knights have been placed on one stand and four footsoldiers on another. How many knights or soldiers do  these represent? Would soldiers, or a knight, be removed from the stand to show battle losses.?
