There are no rules in the book for main gun smoke or WP. If you want to include it in your games you'll need to cook something up yourself.
I see what you did there....... 8-)

Re: Club WaT League battle reports: 1940 and 1941!

Odd that nobody wanted to be the French; ok the quasi-WW1 light tanks are a bit crappy, as is the Vickers VI(a-z), but the Char B1 Bis and the Somua are Panzer-knackerers of the highest order.

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE - INFAMY! INFAMY!

.....it's on to painting some smelly britons in various stages of undress. I realise that nudity was nowhere near as much of a shock to the system as it became when we became more "civilized", but we rarely seem to factor in smell/scent into our games (I can only think of horses getting a whiff of ...

Re: Any changes to the British Malaya Lists?

I'm looking at a Sikh platoon for this campaign, with British/Indian/Australian supports (eg 2-pdr from 80 A/T Regt, RA; Indian Carrier from a Divisional Recce unit) and am also eagerly awaiting the Far East book. As I understand it, platoon structures - at least at the very outset - were standard, ...

Re: Malaya and Lanchesters - what colour?

Have you considered having them built for you by Adrian's Walls? I've been chatting to him recently, with regard to having the Sarissa buildings, and a couple of others (similar to the ones Lardy Rich does in his tutorials). They aren't cheap, but you can amass them over time, and they will also be ...

Re: Japanese list

Sorry to revisit the wheel, but what personal weapons did the GD squad carry - specifically the three two-man crews (obviously the other six plus the Gocho had rifles)? Did they all have rifles, too, or were they "excused boots" on account of having a mortar and ammo to lug around? Also, did Japanes...

Re: Malaya and Lanchesters - what colour?

Re: Takin gembloux gap part 6

Given the relative heights of men and women in my family, that would be more a crotch problem than a head problem.

Re: Malaya and Lanchesters - what colour?

That's the real reason the UK hasn't been invaded since 1066. The Normans set up what eventually became the Inland Revenue, and any foreign soldiers arriving from abroad (regardless of size) have been threatened with crippling surcharges.
