Re: Tiger I

There are photos Most interesting to see them in 1945. As I understand it, production ceased in June 1944 and given the life expectation of six months I had assumed that all the Bulge Tigers were Tiger IIs and the Tiger I was essentially extinct by then. I was interested to hear an American tanker ...

Tiger I

Does anyone have sources to know if Tiger Is were used after the summer of 1944 when they were present in Normandy? I have seen it claimed that they were used in the Ardennes but I know of no written source that confirms that and I thought that in the Bulge campaign it was only Tiger IIs.

Re: Troop Quality

Many thanks for the comments. Downgrade them one level, so instead of Veteran they are just regular :geek: I think too blunt an approach. I always thought that the Command Decision approach was good. Rating battlefield competence separately to morale. So 7th AD were rated veteran, but with low moral...

Re: Revell Very Late war Panther G.

Very impressive. I am always amazed at what people can do with large models. :o :mrgreen:

I will be sticky to 6mm where I cannot embarrass myself with total painting failure. :oops:

Troop Quality

Many rules, for all periods, tend to divide troops into three categories: :arrow: Raw/Green :arrow: Regular/Line :arrow: Veteran/Elite In Normandy both the Br 7th Armoured and Br 51st Highland Divisions were considered to have performed below expectations. This is normally blamed on fatigue and war ...

Re: 28mm Armour for my son's Bolt Action Games

Many thanks. I guess it would only be appearing very late in the war from September onwards. I had an oppo 30+ years ago who painted eyeballs on his 6mm figures and I guess he would do it but I think I'll give it a miss. I just wonder when they ever got seen in this warpaint on the battlefield; I as...

Re: 28mm Armour for my son's Bolt Action Games

Impressive painting. I am not familiar with speckling on the autumn dapple camouflage but doing 6mm I guess I would not have been interested anyway. Can you say anymore about it?

Re: Air power in a wargame

Played as off-table artillery. (1) Bombing aircraft arrive and attack target when air card drawn. (2) Small risk of target misidentification but otherwise will only attack targets that are at least 400 metres from any friendly troops. (3) Flak defences defined by proximity to target and fighter cove...
