Re: 29, Let's Go! campaign (updated 30 05 20)

The US 175th Infantry Regiment have to clear a village on their flank and the site of ‘mobile 88mm guns'. So far the Germans have been unsuccessful in stalling the US advance, will they be any more successful here? Full AAR is here http://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/2020/06/29-lets-go-scenario-3...

And here's a link to a step-by-step tutorial on how I put it together.

Sarissa Village Church

The 29, Let's Go! campaign for CoC was my incentive to upgrade my terrain and finally acquire a decent village church. Sarissa have added one to their 20mm range and it looked like the basis for a very decent piece of terrain. I've done some work to embellish it and I'll post a link to that in the p...

Re: Colour Pictures of British Infantry & Tanks

On the same subject the Priest or Sexton clearly shows the Mickey Mouse ears camouflage. That appears to be over SCC15 which is looking much lighter than the dark olive drab of the Sherman.

Re: Colour Pictures of British Infantry & Tanks

Great stuff. I’ve seen some of these before and have them saved. The thing that struck me the most was how dark the olive drab is on the Sherman. It looks like these have been kept in their original US factory colours rather than repainted in SCC15 (British olive drab but a different shade than the ...

Re: 29, Let's Go! campaign (updated 30 05 20)

Another great report, cinematic in its scope and as ever with its incisive commentary and judicious observations - it is great to see you both in action again - yet another blessing of Australia's flattened curve Thanks, glad you enjoyed it, we've been lucky here so far and as long as we don't let ...

Re: 29, Let's Go! campaign (updated 30 05 20)

Another tremendous write-up - thank you. Interesting point about the buildings not helping your defence. In one of the recent Oddcasts, Nick remarked that wargamers tend to be obsessed with occupying buildings, whereas in reality, troops tended to do what you did in this game, namely dig entrenchme...

Re: 29, Let's Go! campaign (updated 22 03 20)

With the easing of restrictions here in Australia it's been great to get back to some face to face gaming and more importantly get our 29, Let's Go! campaign up and running. The Americans cut through the Germans like a knife through butter in the last game, so can my Germans put up a stiffer fight t...
