Re: Homer Run at Osmanville.

I have greatly enjoyed reading your narrative of this campaign, so many thanks for taking the time and effort to transcribe it.

I also love your fiendishly clever plan of hiding that patrol under the inexplicably over sized technology that mysteriously showed up in 1944 Normandy.

Re: A Quick Question about Japanese

My IJA platoon is based on the standard TO+E for the 1942 Papuan campaign, which means that before attrition kicks in, they will field a core element of: Rikugun Shō‐i (Second Lieutenant); Gunsō (Sergeant); 3 squads of Infantry (each comprising a Corporal, LMG with 3 crew, and 9 Riflemen); and 1 Gre...

Re: Spanish Civil War using Chain of Command

Ah, Lord! This really is the straw that broke the camel's back. I have been desperately resisting the siren song lure of the SCW ever since joining the site, but this beautiful looking report has finally convinced me that when my Papuan 1942 campaign has been done, I just have to once more take to t...

Re: Bloody November 1936 - SCW campaign final game

Good to see that the forces of truth, justice, and swish overalls triumph. I have always had a soft spot for the Spanish Civil War, and this series has held me utterly enthralled. The quality of painting and presentation has been amazing (those jump off points in this report!!!!!), and the yarns tol...

Ditto.

(It was a pity that Ronin was in the same category, so I couldn't vote for it as well.)

Re: Suggestions for US Marine special rules

For my Guadalcanal era USMC (D-1 TOE), I have them with the scout rule (which seems appropriate based on Marine operations on Guadalcanal) and have given them a Marksmanship rule that allows a junior leader to activate a unit to fire using 2 CI and that unit's riflemen (note, not the BAR, SMG, etc)...

Re: Suggestions for US Marine special rules

My experience from being on exercise with US Marines in the early 80s is that they had extraordinarily high morale to begin with (we used to call them all "Rambo"), but were tactically inflexible and tended to fall to pieces quite quickly if things went wrong to any degree. But we're not talking ear...
