Panzer II Command Tank.

Thought I knew every variation and nuance of German tanks, but discovered pics of this while googling something else and it was new to me. A Panzer II with a large boxy cupola in place of the standard split hatch. Some pics here if you scroll down a bit. http://www.militarymodelling.com/forums/posti...

Re: US assault landing teams

I think that is a wargaming Freudian slip. You subconsciously wanted them anyway and you fooled yourself into ordering them. :-)

Re: Any other Modern gamers ?

We have used dicing to activate for some years in PBI. Never found you don’t need a plan, quite the opposite. You have to think carefully what your command assets are going to do, because the best chance of getting the troops to do stuff is when the commanders are in close proximity.

One problem with playing both the General and the lieutenant is it gives too much information to the general about the state of low level units. As Phil Barker pointed out in the designers no...

The story of a bunch of psychopathic villagers who rumble, then do over some disguised German troops. The sce...
