I hadn't heard of that one, Hman, but it does explain why there is a tiger in one of the PP packs (that, and Apocalypse Now!), of course.

Nice 5-minute clip of contemporary-looking footage, and possibly a plot line to inspire Martin for a 15 Mill scenario?

Thanks for posting,

Simon

I think Les has laid the tiles in order to play square bashing on the floor. Good work Les.

Ah - the whole of the Western Front in one game. I'm always amazed at how flexible the RFCM rules are in terms of scaling up to suit specific scenarios.

But, to be fair (to yourself) Martin, you are always very good at those events you run to introduce everyone, and mention their online identities too, which I find a very friendly and helpful thing to do.

Free or at least discounted ? The tank transporters I am very interested in....

You could always ask them...  ;)

I have all the tiles laid and grouted (55 square meters).

That sounds like one big battle you're preparing for :)

I think I'm with Martin, on this, if I've understood correctly!

For various reasons, some folk may not wish to use their full name. Pseudonyms ("noms de guerre", or perhaps, in this case "noms de jeux de guerre") can be fun, hence my alter ago (chosen when we were in the throes of doing the Vietnam game).

But it's nice to have a name to address someone by (even if, as Martin suggests, that too could be a false one, if the poster so desires).

So, I think it's OK by Martin's suggestion that I - as one of the surfeit of Simons - keep my alter ego (and I liked the photo) as long as you all have a proper name to call me by.

Simon (which may, or may not, be my real name  ;))

I'm glad it went well, chaps - well done on continuing the new tradition of these themed events.

Photos, anyone....?

I have left length on the injured leg. Thus platers can customise their figure with further  cutting.

Ouch! That is taking gruesomeness to another level. Although perhaps not quite as bad as the AK47 casualties (I think these probably fall into the "very dead" category) with tank tracks across their front...

Litko do quite a range of similar markers, including these:

and these:

And I believe you can get them to custom-make anything you want within reason.

Wow, that's quite an undertaking, Lluis!

It's great that you've found the time / reduction in other pressures to continue these worthy efforts.

I've had a quick peak at the SCW painting guides and they are very clear and well laid-out.

Thank you!

I like the idea of a little bit of randomness, but not for the whole army.
Maybe the core units are chosen by the player, but a few extra units (maybe reinforcements) are diced for randomly.

Quite like the RFCM "asset" notion, in rules such as Square Bashing, PBI and Bayonet & Ideology, then: neither you, nor your opponent, are quite sure what you'll roll up next!

And we all know how wargamers hate collecting extra models - eh readers?

Sounds like a great mechanism - not bad for the manufacturers either!

Otto is often seen with his mates

And sometimes his enemies:

Oh dear - I wish I'd not enquired...  :o
