Re: Shabby Nazi Tricks

Yep, option 1.2 is the one I find best. Used Option 1.1 at first but it has its limitations, so I tried 1.2 and IMHO it is better. The PGB is a useful first option, then a little misdirection helps the process. You just need any figure really, I tend to use a French Gendarme but I have used a French...

Re: Shabby Nazi Tricks

SNT is a bit Hit & Miss but I find combined with a Pre Game Barrage, it works well. I used both in a game of Gembloux Gap on Monday and basically shut down 2 JOPs of my French opponent, forcing him to use his left flank one and permitting my Grenadiers to push forward on his right. Accrual of CoC po...

The Dutch in the 1940 handbook have Kazemats, similar to the Maison Fortes.

Sarjan, Pinjarra briefly covered in the lead in to develop the main character as it develops Thomas Peel. Some interesting characterisations of some of the historical figures who became prominent in Western Australia. Anyone read "One Tree Hill" apparently a story of Aboriginal victory in Queensland...

Re: Re: Australian Frontier Wars - Sharp Practice! lists

Looking forward to gaming this one, just read an interesting fiction book on that period and place. Puts a different perspective on it.

Congratulations on publication, I was most impressed on the first article.

Re: Indian Army in N Africa/Malaya, 1940/1941

The story of Armoured Cars in Malaya is very interesting. The Argylls (A&SH) had mostly Lanchesters (5 allocated and 1 purloined through mates) but I believe they also had some Marmon Herringtons. The Aussies had Marmon Herringtons and IP ACs but I don't think they were integral. We had a thread on ...

Re: Blitzkreig German support lists

Yes, if that motorcycle recce unit is part of that Panzer Division. According to Tip of the Spear, 3 Pz Div had a Kradschutzen Bn in 2 Schutzen Brigade as an example.
