Re: Questions

That's the first time I've heard of the Brits winning that scenario, they're not really supposed to win as they're generally very understrength. Did you dice for the missing paras? It's not unusual for them to have only a bit over half their platoon for this scenario. I agree it sounds quite peculi...

Re: Battalion level WW2 Now called "O" Group or the story of "Oooooh"

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...

Re: Bloody Bucket terrain

There was no significant snow at that time in the area of the campaign. There were no heavy snowfalls until after the time period represented. It was cold but the Bulge battlefields characterised by heavy snow were further north or occurred at a later date. I just could not resist doing it in the s...

Re: Far East British platoon for the Far East (the early years)

Great job as usual, I am not sure if I would have the personal stamina to paint up 2 platoons in the 2 different colours. I really like how you have a mix of figures, interesting about the Foundry, I always forget that they have a 20mm line of WWII figures. I have the Japanese painted up. I have a b...

Re: Ambush Rule Query

Funny almost came up in our game last night. I believe if they are pinned the shock should stay with them, until it can be removed.But what happens when and if the shock is removed. I would think they could not disappear and would act if they were deployed.
