Re: Readymade Kriegsspiel "blocks"

I received my block shipment yesterday and spent the evening inventorying and gloating over them! They are every bit as good as the photos and everyone's reports! No, I take that back ... they're better than the photos and reports!! cheers Thank you very much, Tom!

Now I'm looking forward to getting familiarized with the K-S rules, map useage, etc, so I can begin my campaign. I have CC3 now and am in the process of working through map basics, learning the UI, etc. It is quite a wonderful program, but a bit expensive. Not the program itself, but the add-ons and extras. The add-ons and extras contain so much interesting and good information and new styles and icons ... I just cannot resist ... Shocked Very well done and useful. I hope to have some tactical K-S maps done as well as a campaign map or two.

I have just seen this post and may well be interested in these blocks. Perhaps we KS folks in the UK (I believe that this is a US vendor) could place a bulk order?

Also what is CC3? "Combat Command"? Where do I find out about it?


Thanks ...

Richard

"CC3" = Campaign Cartographer 3 from Profantasy and it's a map-making program and a lot more. Here is their url : http://www.profantasy.com/default.asp. The programs, etc are available in download form and there are video tutorials on youTube and there's a link to them at the CC site. There is a learning curve but with the tutorials and the .pdf format manual it's not too difficult. You'll also want to get the Annual for 2008 - IIRC; it's the one with "Napoleonic Mapping" - as that annual has mapping stuff that will fit with KS battle maps.

Hello Harald,  I am still in business.  I am just revamping my web site.  It will be temporarily at http://photoncutter.weebly.com/.

I am glad to hear all the great comments about the blocks.  I really am glad to hear that they are being used.

These look nice - can you tell me the difference between the Starter Set, and the Deluxe Starter Set (apart from +$10)?

Cheers,

Ollie

Hello Ollie,

The only difference is the unit numbers (the text on the block, not numbers of blocks) Doh!  Just reread my post..  It is the same set other than that.  I have had some that wanted the numbers and others that did not.

thank you,
Tom

Good news indeed. I was worried that you were no longer around until James Sterrett explained the issues you were having. Glad your back up as I'll be sending an order your way later this week.

Is it possible to buy a ready-made set of KS blocks?

I am planning to play an actual game with a friend here in town and was wondering if I could escape actually making them.

I found this resource.

http://www.irregularminiatures.co.uk/indexes/miscindex.htm

Anything else like it? I'm in the USA. I don't mind buying from the UK, but I understand the post is a bit sluggish?

And this

Deluxe KS set from Tom at Photon Cutter Studios

Post  King_Rufus on Tue Nov 12, 2013 4:03 pm

Just received my Deluxe KS set from Tom at Photon Cutter Studios.

They took a little while to come across the pond, and seem to have been delayed somewhat by my friends in the British Customs & Excise, judging by the number of official stamps and labels plastered over the envelope. No accompanying demands for VAT or excise duty, however, so obviously the EU and US bureaucrats have agreed in civilised manner to have free trade in Kriegsspiel blocks Razz .

The blocks look great, and I will be taking some photos and posting them here with a proper review shortly.

Yes, they really do look good. You seem to have enough pieces for quite large forces. How much did the set cost?

I too have a set of Photon Cutter Studios blocks, and can testify not only to their fine quality, but also to the excellent personal customer service extended by the proprietor, for which many thanks!
