Re: KMH with Black Seas Ships

I've played KMH with my existing 1:600 scratch built ships, and being lazy and not wanting to get the big game table out, I just used the existing distances. Game worked fine.

Re: Yahoo Groups closing?

The problem with forums is that you have to go to them.
Email comes to you - so if you are a member of many groups, it is much easier to look through your inbox than visit a ton of fora.
Anyway, the lardy yahoo group is pretty moribund these days, so it will make little difference.

Re: Operation Torch

There's a nice Operation Torch scenario in the original Rapid Fire rulebook. Opposed US amphibious landing.
Played that a few times both with RF and using Battlefront:WW2.
I'm sure it would work for IABSM as well, although you might want to split it into smaller sections.

Re: Peninsular war campaigns

The Compleat Fondler is for SP1 but is easily adapted for SP2, and contains about 18 peninsular scenarios in a narrative structure.
There is a nice little Coruna campaign with 4 scenarios in the summer 2016 special.

Re: augustus to aurelian

You are welcome to my copy; I have the PDF and also a printed out copy, which you can have for the price of postage.
Bought it and tried it but it really wasn't to my taste at all.

Re: New firing charts for Kriegspeil

As I recall there was a revised version of Kriegspiel published in 1862 by Tschischwitz - that would seem to be the best starting point for Franco-Prussian War.
Funnily enough the Lardies publish it, as well as the original 1824 set:

Re: Availability of 1/72 low tier vehicles, especially starter tanks

The old Airfix 'infantry combat group' figures were tiny - more like 1:87 scale. They worked with the Roco figures in that scale.
