Métal hurlant

Unbelievable, but they still exist, wargamers looking down on wargaming with plastic and 54mm figures, as the figures being toys, children's play. (funny ...28mm looking "down" on 54mm).
Happy to say had some youngsters at a wargame demo this weekend, and they had fun.  They are the future isn't it.
After all, aren't we (almost) all grownup's playing with soldiers (including the metal ones).
And yes, I do use  promotional figures from the 1960's , 'Café Storme' figures that are better sculpted than most metal figures, even today.
If metal makes the difference, wonder what he calls it when he pushing around his Matchbox or Majorette cars.

Map of the game for Crisis

A first map of what the tabel should more or less look like. A square is 5cm by 5 (4m by 2m).  Orange are plowed fields. Red is Long Marston.

Concerning the rule. The English version will not be ready for Crisis.
