Re: Tunis 1943, Germans vs French, 28mm CoC AAR

I haven't found out yet how to make the pictures fit into the frame (apart from making them smaller of course), you need to see them complete in the bucket.

Re: [AVBCW] Thoughts sort on militia formations

I am purposefully making machine guns of any kind a rarity. The only units to have any as standard are regular military ones.

Re: [AVBCW] Thoughts sort on militia formations

The CoC Espana list used squad in that context, so I was just following suit. But, yes, I should probably be consistent from list to list.

Spanish Civil War: Reading list recommendations?
