Re: Füsilierkompanie (auf Fahrrädern) KStN.149 V 1.9.1944

Nice, it is always neat to see different types of units.

In your list you may need to consider movement rates when mounted on bicycles, dis/re-mount process, etc.

Re: Lard Locator board please!

wow I was away for a few days and it is starting to fill up. Well done.

I added a second location for myself in Montreal (a desert as far as I can see for any historical wargaming). I spend a lot of time and have an apartment, in the hope that I can flush out some possible Lardies.

I think this is a great idea. It would be nice if more formalised. I live in the Boston suburbs and play CoC (20mm), SP2 (28mm), DuxB (28mm), WaT(20mm), GdA (15mm) and PC (15mm) from the TFL stockpile.

Re: CoC Battle of Narvik

pedivere said What surprises me is the apparent lack of cover... I think you maybe misreading the terrain, there was a lot of cover on the table, the forests and hills were light cover and the forest blocked LOS. The allied forces utilized both covering fire and tactical stance to great effect. John

Re: Retake Suomussalmi

Thanks Greg, our next game is going to be a Soviet armoured column vs a Finnish Infantry unit. Lot of challenges in design here but working on it now. I am quite curious how it will play out.

Re: CoC Battle of Narvik

Very interesting Emilio, really quite detailed info. What we played was a fictional encounter but I believe the allied squads used were quite reasonable historically. I agree that were 2 SL's but in the game we played they were both influencing the French squads only including the Polish squad which...
