Anyone fancy a game of DBA by Skype.
Table and camera set up at mine, both dice rolled at mine on picture and opponent decides where their troops move.

Have done a few already only issue is that it is hard to get subtle movement right and both players have to say things like move em to the left and leave them just out of 2BW

works ok

its the sort of thing where a grid would work very well, say a 0.5BW grid, units are aligned to the grid directly, only angle being 45 degree increments

I have got 6 games in now, works ok but you have to be generous with the movement.
Advise your opponent if he moves a few mm to the left you with ZOC me etc.

Actually Stevie on the DBA forum has put on full rules for Grid Based DBA

I'm actually surprised there isn't an on-line version of this, the rules seem pretty much perfect for a computer game, and such could handle positioning nicely, sorting measurements and alignments up.

doesn't tickle the "painting things" itch but would seem an ideal candidate
