The Vanity Project (part 3)

Huzzah! Evidence that I have indeed sold more than one copy of "To Ur is Human".

All in the UK so far. That worldwide distribution better kick in soon. I spent a whole day re-formatting so that people outside Europe could order it.


I hope I haven't peaked too early.

  1. Trebian,

    My copy just arrived in the post ... and it looks very good indeed. I'll write a review on my blog and on Amazon in due course.

    All the best,

    Bob

  2. I was quite tempted but my total lack of ancients miniatures counted for two votes. Regardless, congratulations on getting it put together and up for sale!

    1. I would say that there are enough original ideas in there to give you ideas for other periods. Plus it's only a fiver.

  3. The rules were not available on Amazon USA when I first checked but are there now. I ordered a copy but I don't have any ancient "ancient" armies. Looking forward to discovering what might be applicable to my Biblical armies.

    1. The search function was a bit odd at first. You had to be very precise to find them. Thanks for buying them. Paying in USD is good for us at the moment!

    2. It's now 9, last I looked, and there was a copy shipped in the US. So thank you. Mine are still a week or two off.

    3. Rules dropped into my postbox Wednesday. Use of the Fear Table had me scratching my head until I realized that the unlabeled column ought to have a header labeled, "Fear State Change." After that epiphany, the table made much more sense.

    4. Ah. Yes. Obvious. I hope the example of how the Fear Test makes that work. I had used both "Fear State" and "Fear Level" in the rules, and changed most of them to "Fear State. Perhaps I should have gone with "Fear Level".

      In other news, my consignment has been despatched from the Amazon printing works.

  5. Got my copy today , looks interesting I have have a couple of plastic DBA armies , how many units/points per side in a typical game ?

    1. Based on the points values in the back of the book I tend to play between 150 - 200 points a side. The last write up was 185, I think.

      You might have to be creative with the DBA armies as you won't have enough bases to remove. You could use a system of temporary casualties and permanent hits on a single base unit. That should work just as well. As I think I say, because it is using squares bases size doesn't matter.

    2. Have lots more plastics so will expand when I get around to it , the rules look interesting and thankfully simple .

    3. Interesting and simple was what I was aiming for. More plastic toy soldiers is always a good idea.

  6. Just ordered my copy. It will make an interesting alternative to my normal blackpowder warfare games, and I envisage 'borrowing' your fear test ideas for my ECW/early 18th century games...

    BTW, my regular opponents thoroughly enjoyed your Northampton 1460 game, and expressed the hope you would produce others in that style.

    Best wishes,
    Arthur

    1. I have a version of the Fear Test in my Jacobite rules, so great minds....

      It would be good if you could slip a review into one of those rags you write for.

      It is possible there'll be an Edgcote 1469 game, but that's probably a year off if it happens at all.

      Thanks for your support.

      Trebian.
