Re: Spot the mistake!

WOW................ I`m not even sure how he managed that?? I actually think it's kind of cute in its naivete. Clearly someone who was so excited to be building a model tank that they paid no attention to the instructions. Paint job is a shocker though. I've actually messaged the guy on Ebay asking...

Their drills are well-understood and their doctrine was based around units at this level sticking pretty rigidly to the drill no matter what the tactical situation was. It was a conscript army after all, and not prone to being fancy or improv...

Re: Charge of the Paras at Arnhem....

Yep, certainly a good looking game even if the scenario was a bit iffy. One way to make it more interesting might be to "gameify" it a bit more. If your force hasn't got much chance of defeating the enemy in the conventional sense then set your victory conditions so that they can win the game while ...

Re: Sherman Reliability

Re: Chain of Command Caen '44: Operation Martlet and the Scottish Corridor

they would have been ideal for the Journal Probably not in this format though. Instructive too. :D :D Cheers, that's the idea. Whenever I try something new I'll post about it and love reading about when it inspires someone else too. Lovely stuff. Looks like you are using 1/50 scale tanks with your ...
