Mark (MLB) I read you excellent after action report. Once again you was unlucky – clearly using my dice!

Re: Colour Pictures of British Infantry & Tanks

A correction I think. As far I am aware all of the Sexton self propelled guns were manufactured in Canada by the Montreal Locomotive Works.

Very useful pictures.

Re: Leader activating 'twice'?

I’m coming to this discussion a bit late but I did try to follow the extra chitchat on the Face Book page. However, lacking the necessary ‘decoder ring’ I have to say that this complex debate on that location is extremely difficult to follow and very confused. So my two cents worth. Leaders do not g...

Re: Comet Tank in 1:48

The Corgi 1:50 Comet models sell for silly money these days. They are also rather rare and so don't come up for sale that often.
Your best bet is going to be a 3D print. Have a look at Paint and Glue as Garry there will print the models in any scale you require. https://www.paintandglue.co.uk/uk/comet

Re: Road to ....

When I am setting up the terrain I aim to ensure that roads crossing the table do not have direct line of sight from one end to the other. I do appreciate that it is a bit of a contrivance but it does limit the ‘fast draw’ type engagements.

Re: 3D-printing tanks...

They look great - have you tried upscaling Bergmans designs to 1/56th? The Bergman and the Tiger Ace designs look ok when produced in 1/56 - there are a number of operations selling these models. The only real problem, assuming they're produced at a decent print quality, are the gun barrels. Blown ...

Re: Afrika Korps Metal 28mm Figures

Though the Gaddis Gaming range was build on the former Battle Honours figures?
Would be nice to know for sure - one of the 'larger' (25mm) figures I started with.

Re: Scottish Corridor Carrier option questions

Shall we say that using the universal carrier in its MMG carrier role would be 'brave & bold'. The emergency mount for the gun is on top of the engine at the rear of the vehicle. The gun crew would have little or no cover. At the ranges at which CoC engagements are conducted this would be suicidal. ...

Re: Visibility in woods

There is the same rule in Chain of Command.
As I understand this visibility rule is designed to reflect the increased density of growth of both the trees and the ground cover around the outer boundary of the woods (and orchards) as here they benefit from increased light and are hence thicker.
