Hi All,

I can can highly recommend Path of Infinite Sorrows and Warrior of Kokoda.
Also, "A bastard of of a place", by Peter Brune is excellent.

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

Modelling Battalion HQ I'm planning to model 15mm BHQ using a large FOW base. I've seen the photo posted CTP99 with the BHQ having space for a dice to track Battalion orders. To determine the amount of space to leave for the dice, is there a maximum number of orders a battalion can have? I'm thinkin...

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

Hi Dragoon, I've played FOW. I will be up front and state that I've playing FOW and now play I aren't been shot mum (IABSM). In my opinion ISBSM is a better set of rules than FOW. These are my thought on your questions. A) I've used both FOW and IABSM on a 6x6 table, I intend to use the same size ta...

Re: Withdrawing at the end of the turn?

Thank you everyone for your thoughts.

John,
I didn't consider the length of the turn, you make a valid point.
I will rethink my approach to the end of the turn.

Withdrawing at the end of the turn?

Hi All, I have also posted this question on the IABSM Facebook page. At the risk of being accused of heresy, I’m proposing that a unit should be allowed to withdraw when the tea break is drawn. Why? I’ve had situations in games where unit has been in a poor tactical situation when the tea break card...

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.

Re: Fokker D.VII

Hi Len, I've used the "Dog Fight Over Flanders" rules in the past. I haven't played them for long time. I found them to be easy to use and gave an enjoyable game while being realistic. I used these rules for 1 squadron Australian Flyiing Corp in Palestine and Syria with 1/300 scale models. Regards D...
