Re: SCATTER TERRAIN # 9 CLOTHES LINES and HAY STACKS.

Good thoughts on the washing lines! I was just looking at some spare overcoats from a Victrix sprue and wondering what to do with them, so this is well-timed!

Re: Handling Turns different

Tracking elapsed time in wargames, especially small-scale ones, has always been tricky. Your idea reminds me of the "moving clock" from Crossfire, which has a similarly variable length of turn. For demo games and such, I got in the habit of using the passage of real-world time rather than mechanic, ...

Looks great! From this angle they fit in quite seamlessly.

Re: Caissons and howitzers - anyone use them?

Agree with the thoughts above regarding caissons, they'd make lovely deployment points or objectives as well as good scenery for a battery or camp setting. Could possibly also be used as the ammunition cart support option. For howitzers, I've thought to treat them as one class of artillery for firin...

Re: Dunkelbraun or not to dunkelbraun?

Wot you dont want to take on a KV with a Panzer II? 😋 I might! Haha! I figured they'd see much less use in games post '40, and I don't have a pre-established notion of how they should look like I do for the IIIs and IVs. Good enough for my historical sensibilities, and any excuse to paint something...

Re: Dunkelbraun or not to dunkelbraun?

I'm doing my Panzer II platoon up in the grey-and-brown, since they'll be mostly used in 1939-40. The rest of my early war tanks are all flat grey though.

Re: SOME GENERIC SPECIAL RULES

Honestly, I'd just run them as a separate rifle and LMG team. I already do so for Soviets. Having everyone's squads follow the same rules keeps things much more straightforward: you don't have to worry about how running, entrenchments, mortars, tank overruns, casualties, etc. might interact weirdly ...

Re: Recommended lists for using the French?

Following up because I see you'd posted the Japanese list question as well. I'll point out that traditional French troops are one of the most flexible options as far as gaming opponents go: under the banner of Vichy or Free France they fought nearly everyone at one point or another, including agains...

Re: Recommended lists for using the French?

As others have pointed out there's quite a bit of variety available, so I'd recommend talking to your friend about what you both want to collect and play. If you have a regular gaming partner it always helps to pick out armies that compliment each other. Generally, you can approach it one of two way...
