Re: Questions on Gerrman units

One thing that's not spelled out specifically (because you're just sort of assumed to know) is that 251 halftracks were only found in panzer divisions, so if you're playing an infantry platoon those aren't an option for you. Luckily though you only need to add a few extra figures with LMGs to be ab...

Re: help with supplies of WW 2 civilians 28mm

Bad Squiddo Games has got some rather splendid female civilians and landgirls (armed and unarmed) for scenarios based in Britain. Also ATS and female medics. https://badsquiddogames.com/shop#!/WW2/c/21735085/offset=0&sort=addedTimeDesc https://dqzrr9k4bjpzk.cloudfront.net/images/10152787/622089880.j...

Re: Bren Carriers. Are they worth using?

So can you load extra men into a Bren Carrier? I know they started loading 4 men (Commander, Driver / mechanic, Gunner and Rifleman) in each Carrier from about 1941 but is there anything preventing the Platoon commander giving 3 men to the Carrier Section? In real life you certainly could http://ww...

Re: CoC Scenarios

Richard's said in the past that he uses Powerpoint for the maps. Details in the Roundwood Report from the 2014 Christmas Special p.56. I think he used to use MS Word for the layout, but he's recently moved on to Adobe InDesign.

If you want to submit stuff to him just use Word.

Re: Seven Spears cards

Hi William, I've only played Seven Spears once with Derek Hodge using his figures and was soundly thrashed but that's par for the course when I play Dux B with Derek. I did enjoy it though. I don't know if Therry has a blog. I've always found the Artscow cards to be excellent quality. John And a mo...

Re: French Motorcycle and Cavalry Questions

1) If I wanted to portray a motorcycle platoon in the RDP or RAM of a Light Cavalry Division, I should just be able to use the list/org for the Reconnaissance Motorcycle Fusilier Platoon and use the DLC support list, correct? I've been gleaning some info from the web and my library and don't see an...
