Re: Y'all Stay Safe

As Buckinghamshire correspondent, I can report that it was pretty windy last night, but is quite quiet so far tonight.

Re: Tell us about yout Q13 Armies.

I've concentrated on alien armies rather than any humankind ones. So I have: Aphid (frogs) Avians (birds) Chewk (not-jawas) Felids (cats) Garn (T-Rexs) Gitungi (ressemble nothing on Earth) Pelagics (various fishheads) Protolene Khanate (dogs) Quar (anteaters) Ursids (bears) Vornids (plants) plus WWW...

Re: Bit quiet around here

Four hour jujitsu Masterclass but have also found time to start my Hauk birdmen for Q13 and to finish off a bunch of early war Soviet tanks.

Also been updating www.vislardica.com with various AAR and photos.

First game for ages due next weekend, so must prepare scenario for that...

Re: On table medium mortars in IABSM

Well, yes!

But only if it can see its target directly. Which means its target can see it...and you can't hug the ground when firing a medium mortar...which makes you very vulnerable to being shot at.

Re: On table medium mortars in IABSM

Hi Jim Up to you, but would you quibble about the powerfulness if it was an 81mm tank gun or artillery piece direct firing? As, to my mind, a mortar that can see you directly is direct firing...just from a down-on-your-head direction! Anyway, glad my initial answer helped crystallise your thoughts. ...

Re: On table medium mortars in IABSM

Hi Jimbo I think it depends on whether the mortars can actually see their target or not, or are having their fire called in by a Big Man or FO. If the mortars can see their target (i.e. their is a direct line of sight between the battery and the target) then I would use the Area Fire rules on page 4...

Re: Early War?

I love IABSM in the early war period. Much less bland than an endless parade of Shermans, T-34s and Panthers!

Re: Operation Sealion - maximum forces for all scenarios

Thanks Edward: very useful.

I already have everything except the British A10 CSs (like you I would proxy with other early war cruisers) and the German Kfz13 and Kfz14 cars. As far as I know, no-one makes the Kfz13 and KFZ14 in 15mm...does anyone else know where I could get some?

Cheers
