Brits in Indian Army Units

I have long been intrigued by the very personal memoir of George MacDonald Fraser, Quartered Safe Out Here, which has every so often drawn me into seriously contemplating collecting forces for the Burmese campaign. I'm rereading that book yet again these days, and its inevitable siren call is being ...

Re: Evolving towards MOAB

The last tune up games for MOAB 2018 were played tonight at Sutherland Shire Gamers. A Polish pairing of Sherman Firefly + M10 Achilles II fronted a Panzer V Panther D + Panzer IV G combination. The first game was a Fat Boy scenario, and after a tense stand off early the Defenders of European Civili...

Polish Army in France 1940

I am completely hooked by the 1940 Handbook, and see it now being the focus of most of my gaming for quite some time. As well as using the Fallschirmjäger zug and BEF/ Home Guard platoon which I have already collected and converted up (not to mention the Dutch which will be bought and painted over t...

Den Hague & Dombås, hier kommen wir!

Re: EW Handbook on pre-order

I've just started reading the PDF while my hard copy wings its way half way around the world, and ..... well ..... oh dear, oh dear ..... It's somewhat awe inspiring, isn't it? I feel myself getting totally sucked in here, to the detriment of many other games and periods in which I was all set to in...

Re: Evolving towards MOAB

I received confirmation last night that WHAT A TANKER! is ON for MOAB 2018. So a quick reminder to any Australasian TANK!ers that this looks like being 2 days of outstanding fun. Any registrations done by tomorrow (Sunday 16 September) get the Early Bird discount, and we can (probably) lend pretty b...

Re: Firing through members of the same unit

I will have light cover for all of them, so doesn’t that balance things out - hedges don’t stop bullets and the other men are close enough to the targeted men to receive some of the fire? Now if the other men were behind a house then they cannot be targets because houses stop bullets, but a hedge? ...
