Re: Help me choose a book title

How many invasions were there? Will there be a follow-up book detailing the second? There was one initial invasion (Operation Ironclad), the goal of which was to take Diego Suarez. The British had initially intended not to take the rest of the island, but then realised that wasn't practical, so the...

Re: Battalion level WW2 Now called "O" Group or the story of "Oooooh"

Looks interesting; it would appear that you take command of a battalion, which is probably a bit larger than most of the TFL rules are aimed at.

Re: VECW

So the question is, (for a gamer), how far do you take these scenarios without getting too political? You have suggested some great 'what if’ situations for contemplation. I was interested in what people might have to suggest. Many years ago the club I attended had ‘ wine-lake wars ’ between Italy ...

If you are thinking 15mm then why not 10mm?
I off-loaded my 10mm collection several years ago (sorry, I should have said that in my original post).

Re: VECW

VECW = Very European Civil War Do you have a set time frame/period in mind? i.e. Basque parliament 'breakaway from Spain' talks and the violent clashes it stirred up, or the Brexit vote and the way it split Britain, and caused concern for other European leaders, etc A somewhat sensitive subject! I ...

VECW = Very European Civil War

As the strains on the European Union and the fringe countries not in the EU ratchet up can anyone sketch the fault lines of how such violence might develop and what the different sides might be?

Re: Changing scales - 15mm or 28mm?

I do 6mm but my latest acquisition is 10mm. 15mm can be individually based. Not only are 28mm significantly larger, taking up more space, and more expensive, so creating financial strain, but, additionally, so is the terrain. Larger models also require better painting skills. Your gaming table will ...
