Re: Early C20th additions

Inspiring stuff! Every once and awhile something gets posted that kickstarts the old mojo!!
Really like the uniforms and the period of the 'Great Game' between the Imperial Powers.....just right for little known expeditions and actions in the back of beyond.......

Re: The mighty Wehrmacht

Exactly, I find the games that deploy the full orbat/TOE units exasperating! Very few account for normal mechanical and supply attrition, let alone combat losses. Even in peacetime exercises vehicles breakdown let alone under combat conditions! Otto Carius' accounts of actions on the Eastern Front r...
