Re: Two Iconic Brit Fighters

During the early 1980s I took part in a UK government make-work scheme called the Community Programme (anyone remember that?) in which I worked at the Shuttleworth Historic Aircraft Collection at Old Warden in Bedfordshire for a few months. Amongst the other more menial tasks I had one of my favouri...

Re: TooFatLardies Specials

Ah, thanks Monty. I thought I had some vague ancestral memory of past mention of such. I have an unrequited longing to fight a wargame based around the (deputy ?) district commissioner's tennis court.

Cheers

Re: 2in mortar spare needed

There's a chap on ebay, the..s3ntry..box, who sells individual figures and split-up blister contents. I got a Warlord British sniper from him. Relatively expensive for a single figure, but cheaper than buying this from Warlord as this sniper figure (the one in the ghillie suit who looks like he moon...

Re: The Lard Lies Down On Broadway

There's a tremendously well-stocked boardgames shop (or there was in 2013 when I was there) right next to the Empire State building... something like 33rd Street (?) - locals, help me out here. Stocks 'proper' historic hex games as well as the more tedious modern Euro style stuff. We don't tend to h...

Re: Two Leaders with Three Groups : How do they deploy?

Presumably all the support choices which don't come with an integral junior leader come directly under the command of the senior leader and have to deploy with him ? Or can the be allocated arbitrarily to any leader present ?

Re: New to CoC - anyone fancy a game?

To the guys in Northampton and Bedford (Garth and Morgan) I am in Rushden - almost exactly equidistant from Bedford and Northampton (and I was a Gladiator in Bedford for many years). I am looking for CoC opponents in 28mm. I have 1944 German; US, and US Airborne.

Re: Overwatch - or 'watch and shoot' ?

I think mainly we were given rifles so we had something heavy and awkward to carry on route marches. So they had to teach us enough so that we didn't hurt ourselves or each other with them. I did fancy our chances at stopping a determined attack by those figure 11 targets, but something more mobile ...
