Re: Ancestry and TFL

It did have an impact, I believe. It turned my game around (especially the die throws) I won the 2nd playing of the Flanking St Germain in a most crushing manner, committing only one Squad and a tank to essentially wipe out the Germans!!

Re: Plagiarism

I think that since it is a title of WWI rules as is the TFL rules it could be attacked as plagiarism ( it took me 3 tries to spell that right!). I don't believe that they should get away with it. It seems to me to be a blatent attempt to cash in on the popularity of your rules by using the same name...

Ancestry and TFL

I am playing the mini-campaign 29, Let's Go! and the name of one of the town "Arthenay" was so familiar to me but I couldn't place why. Yesterday working on my family geneology, I find that it is the birthplace of one Marguerite Manchon who married Sebastian Provencher in 1663 in Canada they had a b...

Another 29 Let's Go question

We are replaying Scenario 3 as the Germans barely won the last one and have decided to hold and strengthen their defenses. They have lost a Marder. We know that the German unit is not the main unit fighting along the highway, but Campaign book seems ambiguous to me as to whether we should count casu...

Re: Blocking entry roads with mine fields

Please look at the map for Flanking St Germain-Du-Pert in 29, Lets Go. the road entry shows the road edge at less than 1" from the table edge and the center of the road 2". Being a retired engineer, I scale all the maps to get the layout correct. I also use the center line of the road as my measurem...

Re: Blocking entry roads with mine fields

Many Thanks Rich and John. I can now move to planning without having to spend all my supports on mine clearing teams! In his defense, my opponent is a lawyer by trade and a tournament player (FoW) - he sometimes has difficulty transitioning to the "Play the period, not the rules"!

Re: Blocking entry roads with mine fields

I am a member of "that august group" and searched for some answer to my query but no joy. I understand that a single minefield is only 6" wide and one could normally come on within 6" of the road. But if one peruses the map in 29, Lets Go for the Flanking St Germain du Peut, It can be seen that the ...

Blocking entry roads with mine fields

I know this has been covered but after about 1 1/2 hours on here and the yahoo site, I could not find anything (the search engine SH**Ts). My opponent is in a position to place two minefields on the table edge across the only entry road for my two (required) tanks. the 12" combine width does not all...
