Re: Who does 28mm WWII Allies in winter gear?

Brits (and other Commonwealth troops) didn't star in the only "big name" winter battle in the western front so there likely isn't a high demand, or at least the figure manufactures look at it that way.

Re: Question on Cavalry Charges

I don't have the rules, but my feeling is that the skirmishers should take the DT and evade. They wouldn't know that they aren't the objective of the charge. All they know is there are a bunch of dudes on horses heading in their direction and it's time to shoot and scoot.

Re: The Black Goos Mill

Basically, the scenario seems to be grind-em up battle. It might be far more interesting battling along the long side where you can't have the artillery dominating the only easy crossing point and being also able to cover alternatives.

Re: Novice decides to dive in

Thick is a relative term. And there's a big difference between basing some 15mm to 28mm figures on 2mm thick bases compared to basing 6mm on 2mm bases. You'll have to try 12mm out on 2mm to see if the thickness bothers you. It may not and you would be good to go. I like my low profile steel bases bu...

Baron, when you get your game room, please invite me. I'd be honoured and tickled pink to roll some dice in that room.

Re: Novice decides to dive in

FWIW, if you want bases that are not very tall, consider using steel. Not only does it not have the height of MDF, you can use magnetic sheets to line your storage and the bases will stay in place. My 6mm stands stay in place even if I upend their carry case. The downside of steel bases is that it g...

Re: Gun pits etc

One way to do it is have the attacker and defender each roll 1D6 and subtract the attacker's roll from the defender's. The total rolled is the number of fixed defenses (gun pits or trenches) that the defender gets.

Re: 'O'Group Page Numbers

I'm not happy, but I don't need or want a refund. The bound rules are less usable but still workable. It's just going to take a bit longer to find something by TOC or index or reference (like "it's on page 20") and will likely decrease the lifespan of the book in that you have to open it a bit wider...
