Re: 6mm pre Market Garden game

For infantry, cavalry and gun crews use Adler. For vehicles and guns use GHQ. That's the best, though not cheapest option.

Re: Looking for a game in London 28/4

Would have been happy to oblige Dave, unfortunately the 28th is my wife's birthday and thus just about the only day/evening I can't accommodate!

Re: Quick Question before Game

To use the pintle AA MG against ground targets you need to expose yourself quite a bit. If the tank commander is doing this, he ain't giving commands and is vulnerable to incoming fire in my book - sure he gets cover but he's not immune. The sniper only rule is a mechanism to prevent infantry blazin...

Re: Operation Compass- IABSM troop ratings?

I did Rob, I did :) Although you disguised your presence by throwing good dice. . . My comment on Italian disillusionment really applied to the Opening Moves scenarios 1-9. My regular players got very dispirited with the remorseless inability of the Italians to function sufficiently to give a good "...

Re: Operation Compass- IABSM troop ratings?

Ah for the days when A13s were the playground bullies.

Good to see the single v troop activation resulting in concentration of fire. Poor old M. Cioppino - ended up in a fishy stew alright!

Re: Operation Compass- IABSM troop ratings?

Of all the pre v3 supplements only Calais and Vyazma states it is updated for v3. Sea Lion is clearly refurbished but with an upload date of 2011 is possibly only updated to v2 than v3 (although Calais has an upload date of 2009 so that proves nothing!). Footsteps, Blitzkrieg and Rising Sun all clai...

Re: Operation Compass- IABSM troop ratings?

Well you can always buy them direct from Vislardica I'm sure Rob only will only have the updated ones for sale but that only works for the ones Rob did. . . But as I've already bought them and theoretically should have downloads left (although any orders pre 2014 seem to have disappeared) I'm a tad ...

Re: Operation Compass- IABSM troop ratings?

Trouble is there's no evidence that the copies for sale are the updated ones. Nothing in the blurb, nothing on the cover image (that said the cover image for Battle for Liberation is Chain of Command so can't rely on that for guidance!). This isn't the first time I've heard reports that people haven...

Re: Operation Compass- IABSM troop ratings?

Yeah, work does that :) A quick look at H&R shows pretty good coverage, infantry will have to be fairly generic on all sides. No idea of the mix in the packs of course. Equipment generally looks well served. Glaring gaps were no 37mm Bofors and no Italian 20mm (actually a bit light on Italian guns b...

Re: Operation Compass- IABSM troop ratings?

Really? What's causing the problem, lack of Bersaglieri? Blackshirts? I admit I just used Italian infantry for all. And similarly for the Commonwealth - didn't try and distinguish between Australian, NZ, Indian or British. Mostly you only need one type per scenario - the Bersaglieri M/C were tricky ...
