Re: Miniatures for the Belgians?

In 1/72 I found some resin kits for Belgian armour being sold by a Rumanian model company (Wespe?) on EBay. Alternatively there’s some nice looking ones on Shapeways which I’ve ordered but not yet seen - but no hassle to assemble them. Both are quite expensive compared to ‘normal’ plastic kits but y...

Re: Can isolated Leader move on an interruption?

What was it that a very wise man once said? “play the period, not the rules” - on which basis, I’d certainly expect the Leader to get out of danger as quickly as possible, by whatever means (including an Interrupt) necessary.

Re: Added flags for larger battles?

We’ve followed the rules on p.26 for larger games. The only tweaks we’ve experimented with is to increase/decrease the number of cards where the quality of the two opposing sides is very different. It’s also easy to reduce the number of random events by increasing the requirement to 4 consecutive co...

Re: Sharp Practice - Ferrocarril de Veracruz

That’s a pity. In due course, many years hence I am sure, SWMBO will be actively encouraging you to disappear on as many consecutive weekends as possible, I suspect. :-)

Re: Sharp Practice - Ferrocarril de Veracruz

Great looking table and, as you say, the Maximilian Adventure lends itself to SP.

Re: SP1 to SP2

Definitely agree with the views so far - far better to buy SP2. It IS a far superior system to SP1 (which I played since it was released, got some of my best gaming moments from, and am now a definite convert to its successor) It’s a lot easier to convert SP1 scenarios like the ACW, AWI and Mex-AM s...

Re: A couple of questions from our last game...

Hi John

I was referring to the British 1940 platoon listed here as a download on the blog, where the rifle is listed without crew, although you can buy another with crew as a support choice. The question may become redundant after the 17th, so let’s see!
