As many will know the layout is being produced by Henry Hyde.

Henry has suffered with some quite serious health issues this year and both Richard Clarke and I are more than happy to give Henry as much time as he needs to recover, (thankfully he's had some very good news this week) and complete the layout at his own pace. Hopefully it won't be too much longer.

To further pique your interest Richard Clarke and I finished filming an O Group play through today, which will hopefully be up soon, over on the TFL Youtube channel.

Looking forward to seeing the video. Obviously I don't want Henry to feel any pressure. Looks like I'll need to get those Germans!

I had heard Henry had been the recipient of good news, so that's brilliant, and the O Group release will be top news.

That is good news.
I am hoping to play this in 6mm, is anyone else that way inclined?

I have 6mm and 15mm. Of course I will use both, just not at the same time.

These soldiers are small.....those are far away.

(Actually they aren't, they're in a Miniature Wargames photo-shoot from the late 1990s.)
No plan survives first contact with the dice.

mpohagan,

On viewing Richard's 12mm collection, I was tempted into a small foray into that range, (the Victrix tanks are really nice), as the scale of figures seems to suit the nature and distances involved in WW2 engagements, much better

Though I'm not sure it will supersede my 15mms, as this scale, IMHO, is just big enough to permit close association with the figures, but are small enough not to "overpower" the tabletop due to physical figure size.
