Re: Attacking a Signal Tower - Scenario ideas?

I've got a downloaded word document scenario called "X. Signal failures" which I now can't find where I sourced it from - but I'd be happy to share it if you want to PM me. It involves British needing to repair a signal station and French trying to stop them. Yep, I've got the same one! :lol: And I...

Re: Attacking a Signal Tower - Scenario ideas?

bandrsntch, Thanks for the reply. some really nice concepts there - I particularly like the breaking the task into four consequential chunks, and the use of flags as a timing element. It's an unusual and impressive configuration of the excellent SP2 toolbox. Since you've obviously put some thought i...

Attacking a Signal Tower - Scenario ideas?

Hi folks, Trying to put together a mission which involves Guerilla forces attacking an isolated French signal tower somewhere on the Peninsular.
