Re: Question on Culverts in Gembloux PSC

The scenario in the 1940 Handbook says a small and a large. The small culvert requires a 6 to set the charges and the large requires 12. Andy Crow who co-designed the campaign has answered on Facebook saying a small one on the southern table edge and a large on the western. I’ve watched half an hour...

Re: Question on Culverts in Gembloux PSC

While I’m on the subject, can any unit attempt to remove detonators to render a charge useless, or does it require an engineer unit?

Question on Culverts in Gembloux PSC

Scenario 2 is a “Going with a Bang” scenario. The map has two culverts but the campaign notes don’t specify if these are large or small, although the scenario notes refer to these as ‘two key road culverts’. Looking at the scenario as it is published in the 1940 Handbook any culvert in areas 1 or 2 ...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 05 10 19)

No one rush off to Turkey just yet with your fake passports, I've still got AARs to post about the Gembloux campaign! So, the Germans make their fifth attempt to take Perbais. This is their last chance before time slips away as will any chance of a campaign victory. Surely we can take this campaign ...

Re: Gembloux Gap Reinforcements

I think there’s an error in the wording of the PSC. My take is that the Germans may replace the current platoon with a fresh platoon twice in the course of the campaign. This may be done by the Germans at any stage. They may call for replacements for whatever platoon is currently being used once dur...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 05 10 19)

Indeed. I’ve found it so tough to break into the village that I was single minded about taking every opportunity to push forward, unfortunately it meant taking my eye off the ball when it came to that broken team. That said they had no impact on the overall outcome as that was decided elsewhere, the...

Re: Ebor Lard Report

Great report. I too forgot to bring my white fibre ‘smoke’ markers to a demonstration game I was putting on. I had a moment of panic before heading out to the nearest charity shop and buying the cheapest cushion I could find. I ripped the stuffing out and had more than enough smoke for the game.

The NCO tripped and fell and the rest stopped in confusion 😋
Sadly he probably tripped over some of the corpses of the previous platoon.......😢
