Re: SOTCW Future Offer

I'm not sure what you mean by re-launching the forum. Yes, an awkward phrase; reboot or reconnect or whatever. As the main vehicle for the delivery of the services of the Society, I would agree a fresh and careful look at the methodology would be worthwhile. However, I repeat myself ad nauseam to t...

Tank Tactics

During WWII different nations seemed to have different approaches to supporting infantry with armour. The Germans seemed to detach tank battalions and use STUG batteries to provide support. The Americans had an approach of attaching a tank battalion to each infantry division. The Soviets I am not su...

Re: Wargamers and Tactics/strategy.

Perhaps because gamers like models and are limited in using them to hoping they roll better dice than the enemy; many veer towards the gaming fun in preference to the simulation aspects.

Real world tactics seem to get less airing than they should.

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

Interesting; my tale same but different. I joined the SoA in the 1980s but was soured by the heated politics within it of those days. I turned to the P&SS but suffered from burnout after a few years. I dropped out of Society scene for 20 years and then decided to join SOTCW; WWII was always my favou...

Re: Blood Red Skies

We have played it a couple of times at the club with about eight players. As always, the more aircraft an individual has the slower the game goes. Giving a player three or four fighters is fine and they could probably handle a flight of bombers as well, given that the bombers will be mainly aiming t...

Re: Over & out

In another thread, you suggested a £10 fee for access to fifty articles. I don't think you realise how hard it is to get fifty articles - it's the equivalent of five Journals (issues 91 to 95 had a total of 51 articles). I cherish my ignorance ... . Then let the Society make it £5 for 25 articles a...

Re: Journal 96

What about access to 50 articles behind a firewall for £10 subscription; when 50 have been published subscribers are invited to renew for the next 50? Or some such equivalent. Rather like WWII convoys you get: JA01 to JA50 [Journal Article]; then the next group would be JA51 to JA100. However, there...
