Happened in North Africa - Operation Lightfoot as far as I am aware. Could be wrong though.

Re: Positioning of Minefields & Roadblocks

I like the ideas behind this. Hopefully adding to the pot - I'd go for the 3x3 grid with the presumption of a man clearing each "lane" in a 3-man mine clearance team. Then a simple 1D6 roll to determine progress: 1 - Critical failure - Mine explodes roll 2D6 as per HE/grenades 2 - No progress made i...

Re: Advice, opinions and recommendations

I would suggest you stick with Dux if that is your preferred period. The figure requirement is low so you will be able to collect both sides easily enough, and then acquire extras as your campaign progresses. Same with the terrain requirements. Figure-wise - if it was me - I'd go gripping beast as I...

Re: Javis hedges

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
