G'day all,

I've benn getting Malechi to do some BM scans for me for my BM module for Vassal. It's all going really well.

We have noticed that there seems to be a difference between the US and Aus versions of BM similar to the HQ differences.

For instance, the cardbacks have different designs on them, the card faces have different coloured warriors on them, etc.

Does anyone have a scanned US version rule book for BM handy? I just wanted to see if there were any rule differences. Also could anyone tell me the facings of the BM dice they have. My dice have 3 skulls, 1 shield and 2 blanks.

Cheers

Well the New Zealand version (not sure where that came from) had the dice faces as 3 Skulls, 2 Shields and 1 Blank. Similiar to HQ's dice (except the blank instead of a black shield).

Has anyone got some good BM scans or photos of the minis from this game? I'm using some dodgy icons to represent all the units but I'd like better ones for when I release the finished BM Vassal module I'm working on.

Malechi has already sent me some great scans of all the cards and stuff, so if I could get the some icons to match, I can post the BM mod ASAP.

It'll be much better with the mini-photos, like the HQ game. But, in the meantime, I'll get you the icons...

Yeah sorry I don't have any Battle Masters stuff painted, and you couldn't pay me enough to paint all those units.

Actually I do have the Ogre painted.

There were some really nice ones painted in one of the white dwarves. What about on the sides of the box are there any there ? ew, ew, that reminds me lets start that debate up again about painted miniatures or just plain artwork on the sides of the hero quest box  Smiley

I think mine are 3 Skulls and 1 Shield.  Cause I remember we used them for HeroQuest and we used the blank sides as white shields.

Lurch, considering all the differences between yours and everyone elses copy of Battle Masters, I think you ended up with a bootleg copy!
