Trying out One Hour Wargames WW2 rules

 I set up a trial game using what I had available. I used the rules as in the book except for changing all inches into centimetres including base size suggestions. Perhaps next time I will stick to inches?

    1. Somehow inches still feel right, from Little Wars onwards ...

    2. I know what you mean, cm didn’t really work.

    2. I should have halved the inches not gone metric. Will remember next time.

  4. I use metric for all my bases and model making, its more accurate. But when it comes to playing wargames, and anything requiring approximates Imperial is a lot more user friendly. Nice to see a very traditional Airfix layout.

    1. It was ok , not too exciting. The cm decision made ranges too short for my taste compared to the size of the table. I didn’t like the look of it at all. It does deserve another go on a bigger table and with a grid this time. There is a chap doing the rules with his own tweaks in 10mm and I like what I have seen. More detail but not too much at all. Some neat ideas re recording casualties too.

  6. You can access a router’s configuration page using the default IP address of a router. This is usually set by the Manufacturer. The commonly used ones are 192.168.1.1 (Linksys), 10.0.11 (Apple) and 192.168.0.1 (D-link, Netgear, etc). 192 168.0.1 follow this link to configure and set up your wireless router for use Connect the router to a desktop or laptop via an Ethernet cable. For this to work, you might require LAN drivers pre-installed.
