Re: Photograpic record of Chindits in Burma

Zombie thread

The Burma Star Association list 69 Lt AA Regt as having 40mm Bofors and 12.5 mm Hispano AA guns. I'm assuming it is one of these but would like to know

Wait a couple of weeks you'll have a copy of the rules and you'll know everything you need to.
When has that advice ever been welcome :-)

What a Tanker - gearing up - What will we need and how many?

Hi Gents I'm probably guilty of not following the forum where I'm sure the nuts and bolts of WAT are explained in glorious detail, but ...... Can anyone explain what I'm going to need? Is this game targeted at single tanks or platoons ? I saw a mention of progression systems so will I need 3 (or mor...

Looking at 1 Group sailors w melee weapons 6 pts 1 Group Sailors w muskets 6 pts 3 groups Royal Marines 18pts plus 3 leaders puts the total around 48pts for the core force Does that look balanced or would more sailors and less Marines be more a...

Re: The Sharpulator Arrives

Just noticed there is no entry for Tribes with mellee weapons only - seems to assume muskets. I'm assuming 3 or 4 but any idea which?

Panzer I Ausf B in DAK 41 list

After much searching I think the list is wrong and the Panzer I should be an Ausf A. 5th Light took 25 PzIs to the Desert - they seem to be the only unit that used them, and they were all Ausf As (per Jentz Panzertruppen Vol 1) I cant find any actual pics of any Ausf Bs in the Desert. Italeri and Dr...

Line of sight

Have I missed this - just how far can you see through light woods etc or is LOS blocked, and if so can you shoot from the edge ??

Re: Soviet 37mm L37 vs 45mm L46

Resurrecting this thread a bit I suppose but the real question I have is why the L37 is mentioned anywhere in the Soviet list at all? It is a 1944 list so why have a gun that was phased out of service in 1941? I suspect there was less "love" applied to the Sovs and this is a cut and paste from an ea...

Panzerknacker question - what else can they do??

We ran into an interesting situation last game with a Panzerknacker team. The only enemy tank exploded without their help, leaving them unemployed as tank hunters. Can you just use them as an LMG team? This seems a very cheap extra MG42 for the Germans, and counter intuitive thing (play the period a...

Re: What To Do With ATG/Infantry Gun Crews

I would be harsher than that. Gunners stay with their gun - full stop. They never play as infantry - they're too valuable, even to the Soviets. Sure they can grab a rifle and fight in an assault if the gun is threatened by direct assault, other than that they keep their heads firmly down. If they lo...
