Re: Corunna - 'General d'Armee' AAR

Having been born on the 150th anniversary of the battle - to the very day - it has always fascinated me. Well done - superb effort.

Re: EW Germans

A classic example of a wartime army being led by peacetime generals, unfortunately. For me, the campaign was summed up by two separate battalions of Gurkhas being surprised in column of march, on a road, by Japanese tanks, and each being effectively destroyed as a fighting unit. What's interesting i...

Re: Coastal Patrol great for solo or remote gaming

This is a fun game that seems quite a bit more realistic than Cruel Seas because of the blind system. Mark That's been my impression from talking to people who have played both - in fact, I don't know anyone who has looked at CS since it came out and gone with that rather than sticking with CP, as ...

Re: Coastal Patrol great for solo or remote gaming

Any chance of a video walking us through the rules? Having only played Chain of Command and Sharp Practice, I'm struggling to get my head around the CP set; I've just acquired a very cheap starter box for Cruel Seas and want to use the 1:300 MTBs/E-Boats for a simple CP game, just to get the hang of...

Doug and I know someone (Buff O) who also weighted down the bonnet region to give the vehicle more stability and stop it being jogged about on the table.

Re: Infamy Infamy release

I think Big R said on the live You Tube programme that if we're still in lockdown in June, he will consider "publishing and be damned".

Re: French Flamethrowers in WW2

Perhaps someone knows a little about the Italian campaign in North Africa vs the Brits? Would be interesting to know if the Brits captured any. There is one in the Tank Museum, at Bovington; it's an L3/33, specifically an L3 Lf (lancia flamme), which was based on the Carden-Lloyd carrier, built in ...

Re: Finest hour supplement

Only ever played this twice (first time was over a year ago) so apologies for missing any obvious point(s) in this. Wouldn't fuel capacity (and hence time over the target) dictate how long a fight went on for in real life? Perhaps set a fixed number of turns, at the end of which everyone breaks off ...

Re: Anyone working on 1939 Japanese?

Well I have gone for 4 sections of 13 and a 13 man GD section . Thus I reckon I can cover most bases. Mind you now I have to do an Engineer section with all the options.. :roll: This. Have you had any ideas on what to use? The size of the main platoon doesn't give you much change from two whole box...
