Indeed, Michael has a fantastic collection for early war. I'm also quite happy with his May 1940 scenario volumes.

Great link, David. To a really useful scenario; and a beautiful photo report of the scenario having been played.
David, do you (or others) know what scale these rules are being played at in terms of both what one model represents, or one game square on tabletop representing in terms of distance?
I would ask at that website but it seemed they did not accept posts about the scenario.

Carl, the rules are Command Decision - Test of Battle, where one vehicle or artillery model equals 4-5 actual vehicles or artillery pieces. Each stand of infantry figures represents a platoon. Distance scale is 1" equals 50 yards and time scale is one turn equals 30 minutes.

The CD-TOB forum in Gary's link (where Michael's AAR is posted) certainly accepts posts, but you must be a registered member.

Michael's scenarios, AARs, and posts are always worth the time to view.
Nice guy who will always respond to questions about his games.
His paper buildings and ships are really something... as is the breadth and depth of the miniatures he can bring to a scenario.
He posts to CD-TOB and on TMP. Wish we had him posting here or on TWF.

Thank you David.
I agree Bilk, the photos of the grid terrain, and his buildings are splendid as is the array of troops; which led me to ask about scale.
