Re: HE vs Bunkers

So would a squad in hard cover that is pinned count as if in a bunker? We don't normally play it that way. No. A Bunker is a physical structure while Hard Cover can be gained by making the best use of your foxhole by keeping your head down. Edit: Well, OK. Missed the second page entirely, so my apo...

Solo gaming and the patrol phase

Due to current circumstances I've been playing a few solo games lately and rather enjoyed it actually. The dice mechanic for activation and movement lends itself nicely to this and even choosing support options using chits wasn't that difficult to implement.

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.

Are those Hicksy sculpts?
Yes they are. And mighty fine they are too ;)

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)...
