Re: Army list

That SP gun in the Von Luck campaign isn’t so ‘funny’ when it’s raining HE down on your poor dug-in Paras, as I recall.

Re: Retire and Present

I’d say they stop firing uncontrolled - both are involuntary actions but the fact they’ve recoiled means that they’ve been ‘distracted’ from blazing away and forced to reconsider their position.

Re: Volkssturm List

Another idea I’d appreciate your opinions on: Thinking of giving the Volkssturm platoon only 4 command dice as standard but give a better led/trained unit the option of using support points to add a 5th Command dice: What is the CoCulator adjustment for 4 rather than 5 Command dice? I think it’s bet...

Re: Yahoo Groups closing?

Vis, I think that’s a great idea, to ensure that we retain an archive of the yahoo files, thanks for the offer. Maybe just do it ‘just in case’ the deadline passes before we know it?

Re: Volkssturm List

I’m now trawling through various other lists and articles for other ideas on how to give the Volkssturm a bit of character - borrowing ideas from the home guard lists, bicycles and Dutch Lewis guns from Blitzkrieg etc. I think there’s a case to have the equivalent of a 1941 Soviet Commissar, to ‘enc...

Re: Yahoo Groups closing?

As an infrequent visitor to the yahoo group these days (much prefer this forum to yahoo or FB), my main concern would be for the files that will be deleted in their entirety (in December?). While there’s a lot that are probably outdated, there’s probably some useful stuff worth saving/transferring b...
