Re: Javis hedges

They do work well for neat garden hedges, may just stick with clump foliage for bocage and the like. Or mix them in to get some variation. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Javis hedges

Good punt! That's a nice cheap way of getting a fairly long set of hedges - as you say a few improvements and additions and you can get some diversity! Do you think they would work for 15mm or 1/100?

Re: 29, Let's Go! campaign (updated 12 06 20)

Nice report! I commented on your blog but thought I'd add it here too - remember you can counter attack and grind out another Game Turn to allow more German units to cross the bridge. You don't need to just sit and defend again!

Re: ITLSU Reading List

Sorry haven't been checking the forum much lately so have missed your reply. My apologies. I'm mainly interested in the Mesopotamia and Sinai/Palestine campaigns - primarily to get some inspiration and information for ITLSU scenarios, so actions at brigade level with some detail and mapping is ideal...

Big men activating other big men

Hello - trying to find an answer to this - can't see anything in the rules so I may have made it up or read it elsewhere - can the Company CO (Big Man) activate the Platoon commanders in his company? or is that daisy chaining and forbidden?

Thank you,

Gillies

Re: Gembloux Gap Turn 1

Try digging a shell scrape in wood block after tabbing 15 miles. You won't be doing it in 10min, unless you literally mean a scrape and not a minimum 1 foot deep, that you can have two people lie down inside. Maybe 30-40 min in forgiving soil. As for a slit trench, absolutely no way you are doing it...

Re: Gembloux Gap Turn 1

Well I agree, it depends on your definition. A shell scrape or shallow foxhole dug in 10 min or less is quite different than a slit trench dug over say 2 hours. I would also say it is mission dependent eg how long have the defenders had to prepare or is it an encounter or hasty defence etc .? Just ...
