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...

Re: SNLF some thoughts

Japanese TO&E often includes a ‘chemical warfare company’, however this seemed to be more of an engineer unit with responsibility for things like the flamethrowers and generating smoke. Of course it no doubt had provision for using other chemicals but I’m not aware of any instances of the use of gas...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 09 02 20)

I think luck is what you make of it. I had some bad luck, but I also h...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 09 02 20)

Another exciting AAR - you really do those well, my dear chap. Always sad when a good plan gets shafted by the dice (see my signature line! :lol: ) - I know it's a bad thing to say, but I'm often disappointed when your Germans don't get the breaks - I like to think it's an affinity with you, rather...

Re: Japanese Captured vehicles

Not captured, I don't think, but something that the Japanese brought to Milne Bay. Looks like some sort of light transport vehicle?

Re: SNLF some thoughts

Great thank you. Also think I've found an answer to the uniform question. This picture was in the AWM photo collection and was captioned 2/10 infantry battalion Milne Bay September 1942. They are definitely in their khaki drill tropical uniform. The majority wearing helmet covers too. I didn't expec...

Have you looked at Len Traceys SNLF list from Cancon 2019?
No, didn’t know he had done one, is it posted somewhere?

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 06 01 20)

We now reach scenario 4 Get the Guns! So far the Germans have enjoyed a string of three successive scenario victories, all bought at a cheap price with no permanent casualties. With a weak French platoon trying to hold on for support to arrive, is this another chance for the Germans to maintain thei...
