Good explanations in the video David.

Also looking forward to seeing the rules.

I already have 20mm figures ready, on 40mm width bases (originally based for crossfire).

It should work very well with one squad per base, if I'm not mistaken.

Part 1 video very informative.

Looks to me that will work well in 6mm, though a standard 6' x 4' board might be a bit big for the sort of action being played out on camera if the movement/ranges are halved as one would expect for this scale relative to 15mm. I have a lot of 6mm and fielding a couple of full strength 4 coy Brit battalions with all of the supports potentially available wouldn't be a challenge and getting them on table again in a smaller scale action than the likes of Spearhead cover would be great.

Yes I think I might do it in 6 mm myself. I have quite a few bases for North Africa which I painted up for Rommel. My base are large though with multiple vehicles and I think presently represent a company and are 45x70mm. I think it will be easy enough to get them to represent platoons and have some sort of marking system to represent attrition of the squads. I think I will wait to see a bit more though.

Love those 12mm Victrix tanks, who manufactures 12mm infantry? I see Victrix are commencing with that, is there anyone else?

Didnt Minifigs pioneer 12mm ranges way back? Before they went bust and got bought by Caliver?

Looking forward to these but what's the release schedule for other army lists, periods of the war and theatres?

I don't want to invest and get stuck in the usual big 4 countries principally for 1944 NWE.

N,

Hopefully you will not be "stuck" with the big four. Other than bespoke training characteristics and points, the vast majority of weapon and AFV types are listed in the main rules.

So, of you wished to play Germans vs. Poles in 1939 you could, or French vs. German 1940, or even Russians vs. German 1941.

My next project after the main launch is to produce a Blitzkrieg era set of scenarios, etc.

Hi All,

I watch the O-Group video this morning, looks like you will need to think like a command and make tactical decision.

I'm looking forward to getting these rules.

Regards
Darren
