Nice. At one point I thought I was going to construct a campaign around closing the gap at the Falaise pocket - GIs from 90th infantry, Polish armor, Canadian (am I remembering that correctly) motorized all meeting up. Thought it would be grand. Best laid plans.....

Good report.
Def looking forward to some more games.

I have tons of FOW figs I can use and you are bound to go 28mm at some point but if not I hav loaner stuff.

Keep the reports coming, thanks.

Cheers chaps, glad you liked the video. Lee, I am wedded to 15mm I'm afraid. But I'll change you...

15mm all the way... though I expect we are in the minority :)

I hear people say exactly the same thing about 6mm.

You have had me hunting round for my 15mm stuff, I never got round to basing or painting em as we went 28mm for BA and COC.
Another project to get started, TBH I have loads of FOW bases I can just use dice for casualties.

I have tons of 15mm stuff all based for CoC, so whilst you are working on yours I have enough to plug the gaps. Also, a lot of my stuff is based in threes and I use the caps to show casualties, but in more recent times I've started basing my figures in singles for CoC specifically. Personally, I think it works best with 15mm, 28mm just seemed to crowded to me, especially when you have vehicles involved.
