Re: Blitzkeig 1940 book

In short: No, the PDF is 100% the same as the book.
I‘ve got me both versions as I prefer books for reference while gaming but prefer to read on my tablet in the evenings.

Re: French "shurtzen"

The Schürzen were not designed to protect the suspension but the rather vulnerable lower hull portion of the Panzers against AT-rifle fire. So I can‘t see a reason to grant the Schürzen rule to vehicles that didn‘t use them.

Are those Hicksy sculpts?
Yes they are. And mighty fine they are too ;)
If in doubt I‘d always go Hicks over Perrys but that‘s just my odd taste :mrgreen:

Re: Reading recommendations

This query piqued my interest enough that I have since sought out and read Melton Davis's "Who Defends Rome?" While much of the focus is on the political manoeuvering leading up to the Italian armistice, the last third has a reasonably detailed narrative of the Battle for Rome (8-12 September 1943)...

Well, it seems profligate to buy the Italians while I have so much unpainted lead.
As if the thought of unpainted lead has ever stopped just one impulse buy :lol:

Re: Reading recommendations

Thanks Capt Fortier. Will see if I can somehow get my hands on the first two books mentioned. From a cursory glance at Amazon the two latter books indeed seem to focus more on the political than the military situation. Still they might be a place to start.

Re: Help me decide my next platoon

Another vote for Italians! Those Empress ones are pure beauties and such a joy to paint. And they‘re probably one of the few forces you could play from 1936 to 1943 with little to no change. Even mid '44 (co-belligerent) or at a pinch '45 (RSI) wouldn‘t be too far off.

Hi chaps and chapesses, I‘m looking for books covering the fighting around Rome in 1943 after the Italian surrender. There doesn’t seem to be a whole of a lot out there but maybe there‘s a hidden gem out there I wasn‘t aware of? I‘m specifically after books covering the actions of the regular Italia...

Re: Lard TV-Gembloux Gap 3

Deployment and Overwatch: I have never been sure whether you can fire at a section deploying if you have a unit with LOS on overwatch. I think Rich made this pretty clear during the video that you can not and I was happy if this is the case. Correct. Only should the fresh arrivals choose to fire af...
