Re: IABSM handbooks - any use to CoC players?

I think they are marvellous, incredibly useful for CoC, and could only be improved by the addition of a cover-mounted bacon sandwich! But seriously, they are designed to be complementary, with Big Rich and I often sharing our research. As IABSM models a platoon without necessarily including every me...

Re: how many blinds do you start with?

Hi One Blind for that HQ. Generally CiC would start with the HQ element. Note that some scenarios allow you to parcel out a Company's HQ element between the different platoons e.g. let's take a German company with an HQ element of two MMG teams and three platoons of infantry. Here I could deploy und...

IABSM: The Gap

Here’s a battle report from a game of I Ain’t Been Shot, Mum played last weekend against John and Dave. Unusually for us, the scenario was late war, eastern front: with the Soviets rushing forwards to secure a gap in a ridge that the Germans were also seeking to block. It was a very close run thing,...

Sorry: didn't mean to come across as too critical! Glad you're enjoying the game: it gets better the more you play.

Re: Back again with a few Close Assault & Spotting questions!

Hi Q1: No separate cost to initiate the Close Assault. Once you are within 4", it happens automatically.

Re: Stupid question - Barbarossa

Not at the moment, no...but it's one of the theatre books I'm considering for my next project. Can't decide between a Blitzkrieg in the Far East, Part Two: The Allies; a Blitzkrieg in the East, Parts Two and Three: Germans and Soviets for Barbarossa respectively; of to do the Western Desert. In the ...

Dealing with Spam

Hi All A bit of guidance please. I'm happy nuking spam posts: even though I can only delete each post individually, not a topic or a user, most of the spammers post 2-3 times, and there are generally 3-4 of them a day: so only a max of say 12 posts to spam (spammers with 20+ posts I ask Rich to nuke...

Re: Where is Administration toofatlardies.co.uk ??

Guidance please!
