Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 12 09 19)

I think your plan to lull your opponent into a false sense of security is working. (That was your plan, wasn't it.....?) Yes, I can’t wait to see his face when we unleash the new V weapons the Fuhrer has been promising, that’ll show them.....oh, hang on a minute, we’re four years too early for that...

Re: le Haut Perrier IABSM game in 6mm

If nothing else this convinces me that I should do IABSM in 6mm. I love the look of the empty battlefield and the space, it looks very atmospheric, all with some considerable help from that great terrain.

A picture from the game (in case you have forgotten what Perbais looks like - I haven't):

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 6 09 19)

Back to Perbais. I'm sick of the sight of the place and even more sick of the French defenders. I have an eviction order but they don't seem interested in taking any notice. Maybe this time? Full AAR is here http://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/ ... at_12.html

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 6 09 19)

Oh, and good luck finding someone who wants to be the next Obgfr of 3 Gruppe in your platoon! Yep, no one queuing up for promotion in that squad! The Germans cannot call on any armour in this first scenario. The division is mostly equipped with PzI and PzII and were very wary of their vulnerability...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign

The Germans return to Perbais to take another crack at dislodging the stubborn French defenders. The Stukas failed to make much of an impression in the last attack and so this assault might call for a different tactical approach, but will it prove any more successful than the first? The full AAR is ...

Firefly with hessian cammo

Inspired by the results with my Cromwell I decided to try and be a little more ambitious with this 1/72 PSC Firefly and try some hessian cammo this time. As before I used medical gauze bandage as the base for the netting and the hessian strips were made from paper. The crew are both from AB. The PSC...

Re: Close Combat 4 x dice to enemy player

My understanding has always been that they ‘fall back’, no BTH required (unless this takes them off the table with a leader). They then take 8 points of shock, which may well break them, in which case we roll for BTH and they move back once more for breaking. If this takes them off the table with an...

Re: DO WE HAVE A SMOKE PROBLEM?

I have a problem with units moving through smoke into close combat. Strikes me it’s extremely dangerous. First up, while you may know where the enemy was prior to the smoke round, you have no idea if they are still there. But let’s assume these guys are gutsy, so off they go, completely blind into t...
