Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 05 10 19)

That "triple 1" really screwed you, didn't it? I bet even a 1,1,2 would have worked, wouldn't it? Commiseratory PM sent.

Re: Patrol Markers

Many's the time that all those years of feigning incompetence has paid off. Unfortunately, I've now reached the age where even I don't know if I'm faking it or not.

I often go for two stacked groups of two markers each, 12" apart. It gives you a bit of width but allows you to move up quickly and expand out into line in only two moves.
Do the rules allow a player to move two markers 6" each, or can only one marker be moved at a time?

Re: Gegbirgsjäger/Highlanders

Sorry to rain on the parade, but I'm afraid that, apart from nutters like Jack Churchill, and the occasional piper, Highland soldiers did not wear the kilt in WW2. It was officially banned as combat dress in 1939, due in part to worries about mustard gas (this had led to pre-war trials with chemical...

Re: 1940 What a Tanker game

Good report - it will be interesting to see how the impending rules amendments for multi-gunned tanks and one-man turrets deals with the Char B1, which was a bit of a monster compared to anything the Germans had in 1940. Or would have been if it hadn't kept running out of petrol.....

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

Just to add a couple of things - at Plt level all officers were Indian, British Officers only appeared as Coy OC and Regt Appts such as CO, Adjt etc although there was also a senior Indian Officer at that level as well. An Indian Army Company had one British officer - the OC. Occasionally, a second...

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

Thanks, TT - all pretty much what I was hoping for, or suspected was the case. One supplementary question - were the 2-pdr crews of 80 AT Regt likely to be Indian or British? I had considered a Marmon-Herrington armoured car for the Malaya theatre, but it appears these were only available to the Arg...

Indian Army in N Africa/Malaya, 1940/1941

G'day Hive Minders, I have some questions regarding constructing a dual-purpose platoon from different battalions of the 11th Sikhs for use in N Africa and Malaya. I'm thinking of using Perry 8th Army figures with their own Sikh head conversions, and Perry vehicles wherever possible. 1) Did Indian A...
