Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE - DISCIPLINA ET VIRTUS

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the D&V aspect, or is it just me that chuckled when they read that? This is what comes from being in the British Army.

Re: Gembloux Gap Reinforcements

ah I stand corrected. From reading that passage it sounds like there is a separate "reinforcement" force that can be called up. I may have to pick up this PSC to read it all in more depth!

Re: Gembloux Gap Reinforcements

It may be referring to replacements? There is a formula in AtSE:
(Dead+CO's rating/2)+1D6

I don't know the exact wording in the Gembloux Gap PSC but given there is two opportunities to replace entire the platoon I suspect this refers to something different.

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 05 10 19)

How much are you ruing that opportunity to shoot at the broken LMG with SL and JL attached? I think that may have been one of the critical moments in the game. A big drop in french FM at that point could have been a big help.

Re: Munin's First Attempt At WW2 Vehicles

I love this so much! Such a clever and well executed idea. I get stuck into a kit and forget all about things like this until the end, and it then comes down to a shrug and an "oops"

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Yeah I have to say it feels like I joined this hobby at a good time! Also fun getting to discover stuff like 6mm that others have been using for ages but it is all brand new to me! Sometimes being new in a hobby can be rather good!

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

I take your point, at this point I'm looking for shermans, churchills, StuGs maybe Panzer 3 & 4, which they sadly don't have yet. Although when it comes to Russians I think I may use some of their stuff to add some variety and support them. Contrarius - interesting take on it, I've gone the other wa...

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Finished off the first batch of 6mm British troops. Completely forgot to order PIATs from Baccus so will be visiting them again soon! Four platoons, with 2in mortars (no PIATs yet) and Five Big men. https://nottherivercottage.blogspot.com/2019/09/6mm-part-2.html https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VynM4U9nuv...

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

The Baccus vehicles are a bit of a question mark for me, I'm not sure about committing to them and then having to wait for the variety to improve. I'm thinking I'll just go with GHQ vehicles, saves the wait.
2D6 stuff looks good but again - depends how quickly the range fills out.

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Thank you! I've got a few samples of napoleonics from Baccus so may well mix in some Adler cavalry, I've heard the Adler Cavalry is rather good!

Thanks for pointing out the 2D6 site - one to watch as the range expands!
