Re: Cold War Scenario booklet anyone?

Just let it go mate ,eh. :roll: I suspect it is a response to my post. Having asked about it at the club I was interested to discover that some scenarios might indeed have such level of detail. As has been observed it all depends on what rules you use; it would seem that very low-level skirmish one...

Re: Cold War Scenario booklet anyone?

I have seldom had a scenario book but I have seen quite a few; admittedly, I am sure modern Cold War requirements have some peculiarities of their own. 1) No scale to the map. Pointless without it. Don't remember having seen one with a scale but no doubt some have it. It might, or might not, be a de...

Re: How often do you re-read your rules.

I am sure Maneouvre Group is very impressive but I fear it is a little too tactical for my requirements, which are company-sized units and platoon supports.

Rapid Fire I disliked at first encounter and have avoided it for the intervening 20+ years.

Last 100 Days

The BBC has a two-part series on the last 100 days of WWI; part one now available on iplayer with part two to be broadcast next Tuesday. Another 'beginners guide' but it is nice to see the effort being made and there is always something new to be found.

Re: Air Combat Rules

If you're interested I could send you a copy of the rules I devised (for a long-running modern [not just air warfare] club campaign) plus the data sheet (in Excel format so you can add any aircraft not currently covered (the campaign ran from 1950-present in game time). Most kind but at the moment ...

Re: Air Combat Rules

I'm not particularly enamoured of either set, but for different reasons. My experience of CY6 is limited to WWII so your analysis is very interesting. It does not surprise me that there are few variations in speed; from a jet point of view I suspect it is really only capable of, and designed for, W...

Re: This weeks game.

I think the linear hex features looks daft
I agree, which is why offset squares or just squares seem a better solution.

Air Combat Rules

I have some experience of CHECK YOUR SIX but none with MISSILE THREAT. Can anyone compare the two in dealing with late C20 air warfare?
