Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 17 02 20)

So, the campaign comes down to the wire. If the French can win this next game then they earn a narrow campaign victory. This has been a tough slog for my Germans but can they deny the French that victory right at the final game? It's all to play for. The full AAR is here https://thetacticalpainter.b...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 17 02 20)

Well, thanks everyone for those very generous comments. I’m working on the next AAR at the moment and it’s always good to know the effort is enjoyed and appreciated. I find writing them much like re-living the game, not only that, it also makes me reflect on what happened, rules that I might have mi...

Re: 29 Let's Go! updated?

OK thanks. I think we'll just stick to playing it as written, it's not like anything is broken after all. Looks like I will finally get my Americans on the table - an impulse buy at Cancon two years ago where Eurkeka were selling off a bunch of AB 20mm Americans that had been ordered and never colle...

Re: 29 Let's Go! updated?

Looking at a more recent PSC like Bloody Bucket I notice a few other things. In BB the US Infantry Platoon has a BAR team as 'one man with BAR, two riflemen with M1 Garand', where as 29 Let's Go has it as BAR team as 'BAR, two crew and one rifleman with M1'. Similarly later PSC have the German MG34/...

29 Let's Go! updated?

We are thinking of playing the 29 Let's Go! PSC as our next campaign (mainly so I can give my unblooded Americans some table time). It looks like an interesting little campaign. I'm aware it was one of the very first PSCs and I know things have progressed a bit since it was published, so just wonder...

Re: CoC 'Old Hickory', Fight 2, Red 2

German footballers turn out to be not so great at fighting after all. Back to the training ground, or a new manager? Good stuff, very enjoyable.

Re: Stuka Shock

No real need for the suggested changes as the defender does not need to deploy until the end of turn when the effect is over and has the choice to take AA as a support option to reduce the effect. That’s not how it works. Stuka bombardment happens first for effect on buildings that is prior to the ...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 09 02 20)

The campaign begins to draw towards its climax. French success in the last game has inspired a local counter attack. If they can push the Germans back to Map 3 then they have the chance to win a major campaign victory in the final game. But can the French do it? Full AAR here https://thetacticalpain...
