I have the urge to field a Luftwaffe Fortress Battalion :D
Love it! :!: :arrow: We field late war Germans as poor quality, edged with a few quality troops; none of this last-stand SS fanatic stuff.

Re: Blasts from the distant past

I don't quite understand. There are 50-odd Journals that we don't have available in digital format. If one Journal is too demanding, then what are you offering to do? Assume there are twelve authors who have written for a journal. We get permission from eleven of them. Does that mean we will publis...

Sherman Reliability

It is my impression that it is received wisdom for WWII that American tanks were more reliable than those of other nations. In reading Grint's LEADERSHIP, MANAGEMENT and COMMAND I note that he disagrees with this when he suggests that breakdowns were as frequent with American tanks as any other. He ...

Re: Blasts from the distant past

Doing it for one Journal was time consuming and difficult. I won't be doing it for any more. If anyone else wants to take up the challenge, shout up. Well I would consider it but I think I should want a clear idea of what we aimed to achieve. Doing a complete journal might be too demanding but what...

Find, Fix and Strike

Long Face Games: A fast playing set of naval rules designed for use with models from 1/2400 to 1/6000, but adaptable to larger scales such as 1/1200.

Re: Blasts from the distant past

There are legal issues with digitising people work without permission :( Some authors point blank refused to allow their stuff to be so duplicated, we would, therefore, have to track down each and every author and ask their permission to reproduce their work in a digital format - I`m not sure this ...

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...
