Re: 17th SS PzG Div - Normandy

Nafziger, quoting OKH records of May '44 has them with a single battalion of Mk IVs (4 coys of 17) which by June had been replaced with StuGs (3 coys of 14) and neither of the Pz Grenadiers Regts having an armoured battalion. The Recce battalion had an A/C coy (18 20mm & 24 LMGs). The 17th SS Panzer...

Re: New to COC

I base my 20mm figs on 1p coins, JLs on 2p coins and SL on 20 x 40mm MDF bases. Teams go on 40 x 40mm MDF bases with 2 figs permanently fixed and any crew above that on 'standard' coin bases. MDF bases came from Minibits who also do a range of dice frames with dice to match which for CoC can be used...

Re: Recce Troop

Scout Platoon from the British Infantry Div's Recce Regt wouldn't be difficult - 1 recce section of 2 A/Cs and 3 Lt Recce Cars plus 2 carrier sections each of 3 Carriers. Lot of fire power potentially but all small 3-4 man teams led by a JL (1 per section ought to be led by a SL). Organic supports w...

Re: 20 mm figures to mix with Esci plastics

Just found a set of instructions and an unopened pack - my river boats were made by SDD. Looks like they ceased to be available about 10 years ago :cry:

Re: 20 mm figures to mix with Esci plastics

You could try SHQ's Vietnam range. Bought mine a good few years back, along with various river boats (manufacturer uncertain). Range not so great now but should cover most requirements.

Re: 1940s French garage

Also found the post inspiring. If like me you followed up on the reference to the Scale Link pump set and found yourself in a very hard to navigate, old style web site, then you might find this link helpful: https://www.scalelink.co.uk/acatalog/Scenic___Scale_1_76__OO_-p1.html This takes you to righ...

Re: YOUTUBE CHANNEL CYL TV

Had a look also and hit the subscribe button too. Did a bit of quick background reading from 2 books in my library which cover this. Charles Whiting's book, Ike's Last Battle wasn't much good as it's not really about this, covering it only in limited detail. The other one is The Fighting Wessex Wyve...

Re: Blitzkeig 1940 book

Bought the pdf version and did a mono print of it. Nothing critical lost - not a campaign book but covers all the various options for all formations that got caught up in the fighting. Essential supplement if you intend to do build a force for this part of the war and want a bit more than the few ex...

Re: Updated points system for What a Tanker and AI tanker

Would be helpful if you annotated either the title or added a page header/footer reference with the version no. Use your system and find it works well.

Re: Draft list for Polish Home Army 1944

TT - first file appears to be damaged but the AK draft list is OK, downloading and opening fine on my PC. T'other 'un, never get to down load options. Comes up with broken file note.
