Re: Salerno - September 1943

T13A - I Agree with N66. The points system is for friendly make up games. If you're making a scenario don't worry about points, think of historical balance and playability instead.

Re: 6mm Velikiye Luki relief IABSM game--Now with Command Cards

That's a nice looking game. I've been looked at doing at 6mm WW2 a few times but I just have no idea where to start. I have a fair bit invested in 20mm and I'm not sure if it's worth a change of direction.

Re: AAR - Russian Front 1943

Agree entirely regarding the visual appeal of ground debris. A scattering of ground shrubs (aka lichen) and some fallen logs and branches (aka twigs) magically turns a manicured parkland into a naturalistic forest. If you make your own trees, I reckon it's also worth taking the time to construct a ...

Re: GDA2

I'm firmly in the "No changes" camp and I agree with Pyjamas/Carlo in that efforts could be better spent on scenario books. A book of historic or generic scenarios with any rule changes served up as 'Optional" rules would be my preference.

Re: AAR - Russian Front 1943

Thank you both.

AAR - Russian Front 1943

After yet another lockdown my opponent and I got to get the figures back on the table for another game of O Group. Once again this battle was set on the Russian Front with the Soviets again in an aggressive mood. The full AAR is on my blog at: https://this20mmworldatwar.blogspot.com/2021/06/back-to-...
