Re: Using Support List equipment from supplements for MRB Lists...

I would say why not? If it was historical, then go for it. Clear it with your opponent first though... I'd be annoyed if I was playing a scenario and someone popped up a vehicle or other piece of kit that was 'non-standard' - generally speaking the lists cover 'common' vehicles, and leave the odditi...

Re: Boycot of TMP

It's best monitored at arms length, and with rubber gloves, and someone else's long-handled tongs. I suppose if it serves any purpose it does give one a comfortable sense of superiority. I left years back and haven't regretted it. Occasionally, as with other posters, a Google search will direct me t...

Re: Capturing Caesars Camp - New PSC

I did wonder about drafts from depots travelling to their parent units in France. But will play it as written. Means I need more BEF figures though.

Somewhere between nil and zero... I would suggest.

Re: Plans to add the U.S. Marines?

Fire, move and go tactical sounds like it would be a decent boost in ability. I would want some playtesting before that got implemented.

Re: Plans to add the U.S. Marines?

I'm just hoping that the forthcoming Far Eastern supplement - probably coming at Easter, a Far Easter, will clear all this up. :)

Re: Capturing Caesars Camp - New PSC

A number of typos crept through, like 2 on page 3 alone, like in for it and so on.

My query is the BEF squad size. Corporal, 3 man bren team and seven riflemen? I thought the standard org in 1940 was 10 men?

I would say you don't get the usual US characteristics. As the training and ethos was different. You certainly shouldn't get the reroll for a bolt action rifle IMHO. As always, I could well be wrong. It's quite common. And now that I have finished painting my Japanese army platoon and Malayan Campai...

Re: Plans to add the U.S. Marines?

9 is good, three gives one to each team per squad, each with a BAR, and three squads to a platoon. Still sticking with my 28mm 1st Corps USMC.

Incidentally, most of the figures in the platoon look great, but the two farthest left look horribly disfigured in the face.
