Re: EW Germans

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...

Re: Leaders can run 'at the double' all the time?

On a serious note, I suspect that commanding a platoon and commanding an army, require very different skills and somebody who is good at one is not necessarily good at the other (if, indeed, at all). Both men were above average generals, so.....

Re: TTS - would anyone like to play online?

When you place a feature (tree, road, building, whatewer) LOCK IT (L key)! Every single one. Lock lock lock and lock. Take care that what you want to lock is selected (white border). Otherwise you UNLOCK the table, throwing everything around. Furthermore... SAVE SAVE AND SAVE! I know, I'm not exper...

Re: Leaders can run 'at the double' all the time?

Presumably Runstedt did at some point, but not in combat. Patton would have commanded a troop, but given his literacy problems he might well have spelled it p-l-a-t-o-o-n. To be fair, Patton competed in the modern pentathlon - which sounds a bit like platoon - at the 1912 Olympics (and was the highe...

Re: Leaders can run 'at the double' all the time?

Given that Patton was a cavalryman, and Runstedt seems to have spent almost all of his early career as a staff officer, I suspect that opportunities to exercise their running skills might have been limited.
