Re: How do you indicate special individual weapons?

I use small colored beads on the stands from arms length they are not visible bur are when close up. I use a larger stand for officers but the ranking and weapon are still indicated. Engineers use hexagonal stands. I use 20mm figures.

Re: Writing an AAR

Thanks for the input. I don't have a problem writing up the AAR, but appreciate the guideline as is is an excellent one to follow. I also take a lot of photos but am always amazed when someone reports that his opponent rolled two 6s a 5, 3 and a 1 or some such detail. If you are playing in a game, t...

Re: Operation Martlet -Walls

Is this a good time to bring up my previous observation that their is a need for an Official Map key printed in each Pint Sized scenario? There is also the prayer that the Map key won't change from scenario to scenario except for new additions for terrain that had not been encountered before. Dick B...

Re: HMG on Sherman Tanks

A few days after D-day a family friend ( now deceased) who was a combat engineer and had landed on D+2 was behind the beaches, clearing mine fields with his team. Shots rang out from the German side of the field and they bellied down in this uncleared minefield. It was a German half track! A call ba...

A bazooka team has 2 points of shock, it moves slower but how do you handle the loss effect against an AFV? What about a manned AT gun under fire firing against an AFV? What...
