Re: Some French for Late Rif War or north African skirmishes

To add a dose of confusion, I seem to remember that, actually, a fez isn't a fez. I think Tommy Cooper's wearing of the red tasselled version popularised the name of it as a fez after either he or the papers referred to it that way and the name stuck. I haven't searched for what it was originally ca...

Re: The continuing story of my book...

Aah okay. Yes I found the rules just after I put together the book. I figured they were different enough not to cause too much confusion.

Hope you enjoy the book. If so, a second review on WV would be most welcome/appreciated.

Cheers

I thought that latterly the French moved on to a khaki greatcoat?
Also were the Austrians not grey clad?

Still not my specialism though.

Re: Uniform Identification Required

Mmm tricky. The hat's quite Serbian but the greatcoat is late French? Perhaps a late war Serb re-equipped in Corfu?

By no means a specialist area for me though.

Still struggling with my next book...

All So, as previously mentioned my next book is a campaign system about Barbarossa and I may have sorted the title and cover. Looking for opinions. I've been toying around with themes... Need to get the sense that this was just the first act. Obviously there's Russia as a bear and I wondered about G...

Re: Salute 2018.

I stumbled on the Armageddon show in Reading as a student in 1981 (maybe 1980). Purely by chance, did I happen to be in the town on that Saturday and see the big banner across some odd municipal building above the bus station. Ordinarily I would have been hanging around campus. It remains my favouri...
