Re: Are some forces considered distasteful?

My Uncle lost his life fighting the SS in Normandy. My Father also fought against the SS in Normandy. Four of his close friends were blown to bits before his eyes due to the action of a Hitler Youth POW. Did my Father ever tell me to stop wargaming? Of course he never! He always enjoyed looking at ...

Re: A consolidated book of army lists

Ditto!
The gaming community owes TFL (Rich) a huge debt of gratitude.
Quite simply the best rules available.
Sharp Practice V2?!?!?
Brilliant
Can't wait!
Actually I can wait but you get the idea,...

Re: A consolidated book of army lists

I think that some see what I'm saying as a criticism of CoC, Richard, TFL in general and a general affront to gentleman wargamers world wide,... I'm SUGGESTING Suggesting that if CoC wants to grow, and rival systems like BA then MAYBE (just maybe) a set of consolidated and comprehensive Force / Plat...

Re: Are some forces considered distasteful?

For me it's not the battlefield transgressions of the rules of war that makes gaming with SS units unacceptable, it's their willing complicity in mass murder of civilians. .. :shock: No more so than the Heer / Wehrmacht If that's your reason for not using SS, then you had better put your Regular Ri...

Re: Are some forces considered distasteful?

Oh,.. I should probably add the following As someone diagnosed with PTSD (diagnosed, not 'suffering'; I don't 'suffer' from PTSD, my family does but I don't) I can understand how war gaming might (might) be a trigger for a veteran. That said. I have a few mates in the same boat and they all continue...

Re: Are some forces considered distasteful?

Rich's comments below are spot on. As I stated right from the start, if you think the SS are 'UN-gamable' (I think I just invented a word) then you need to probably reconsider where you stand morally in any Wargaming at all. As my wife (who also serves) said to me this morning: "I'm assuming there i...

Re: Are some forces considered distasteful?

Trailape, I think you'll find some folks actually will stay away from the conflicts you mention because they don't like the taste of it. People are entitled to draw their moral line in the sand wherever they feel they must. You're always going to get differing opinions on that. Let's make sure we d...

Re: Are some forces considered distasteful?

You should actually paint the whole picture however,.. You intimated that the current crop of free lists was somehow comprehensive,... I was simply demonstrating it is not. If you're accusing someone of not painting the whole picture perhaps you should at least try to do so yourself. What I actuall...

Re: Are some forces considered distasteful?

OK it's Wikipedia but when we say SS Anti-Partisan Divisions these are the kind of people we are talking about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/36th_Waffen_Grenadier_Division_of_the_SS Actually I had in mind Florian Geyer: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/8th_SS_Cavalry_Division_Florian_Geyer But hey,....
