Lock n Load's Battles on Demand series
« on: November 12, 2017, 09:30:17 AM »
Anyone tried these out yet? https://store.lnlpublishing.com/series/battles-on-demand-series

I'd like to order Against the Odds, but I don't really understand how they come together.

There's the download version available at a discount, but I'd rather have a full readily playable game, with map sheets and counters there, with no need to print anything out myself.

Is that what the full price set includes?

I knew I saw this somewhere, it was in the What's on your table thread

Just arrived...



So looks the real thing! @BanzaiCat have you opened it (Against The Odds) yet? Full little game, is it? Pictures please   O:-)

Damn but Wing And A Prayer looks awesome (too). LnL's really putting some gorgeous games together  :smitten:

Yup, I've got some pics taken of it - I just need to put it into an article.

When I first opened it I was pretty confused - I didn't know LnL did print-n-play type games where you have to mount it yourself.

I'm wrapping up a review of A Wing And A Prayer and a few other things but this unboxing is on my to do list before Thanksgiving.

Thanks, looking forward to seeing them. As for the game, so not a cardboard thing, but sticker style sheets instead?

It's not sticker-style; you have to mount it yourself.

There's a couple of cardboard sheets included but if I remember right there's at least three pages of sheets (but only two cardboard sheets). So, I'm not sure if those inserts were meant to be reinforcement (as it comes in a zip bag), or if they were intended to use as a backing for he sheets - or both. You'd need to use your own adhesive and then cut them out.

If you don't have a rotary cutter, I'd recommend using one of those.

OK, maybe I'll wait to see your posts about unpacking it before ordering myself. I was looking towards proper counters especially, would not have minded thinner map sheets. 

As for rotary cutters, yes, bought a set a while ago.

So maybe i need to order this regardless the fact that I was looking forward receiving a mounted game.

Edit: To give the rotary cutters their true baptism of fire, that is   :)

It is Platoon scale, it is Golan Heights 1973, it is an order placed  :smitten:

I'll make a post of putting it together, once I got it.

I had a feeling you'd be someone to order it before you see an article / unboxing on it.  O0

You'll go far at GrogHeads. We're a bunch of game enablers.

Couldn't pass on this one, that's true.

I am really looking towards the When the Lion Roars of the WaW´85 fame. Still not even at a pre-order stage, but this should help me pass at least some of the time, in the meanwhile.
