But of course.

Starting to look for figures and information for my NZ PBI army for the builder game for next years weekend.

Infantry with Vickers-Armstrong Mark VI light tanks in support.

Whats your stuff going to be Simon?

As per the briefing sheet Les 🙂

And if I'm doing the scenario there might not be that many British tanks allowed to face off against the invaders...

I plan to get more thoughts on scenarios, scenery, forces and special rules out for discussion in the next couple of weeks, for those interested. I'm delighted that you're doing an NZ force, Les - that will be one more to tick off the list.

I'll build it for PBI and will not be offended if you do not use it all in the Crete game, but it will give me a complete 1941 army.
I do have Italians as well if you need some for the scenarios.

My Kiwis are too late for Crete. They are for the Italian campaign.

I fancy doing some “RAF” personal in combats and local airfield soldiers.( Being ex RAF and my old Squadron were there too,33Sqdn) I assume they would be in 8th Army dress ? With or without helmets and caps ? Maybe looking more like Militia ??? Will have to do some research on this ?

Maybe the PBI could be a mini-campaign over the playing sessions?

‘Wild geese’ type game using AK47 rules.

Martin,

Thank you for this kind offer, but if it's OK with everyone, I'd rather hold fire a little before "going public". I have a few folk (including your good self) that have kindly offered thoughts, advice, troops and scenery they're willing to contribute. I'm reviewing my initial thoughts and fleshing them out a little. My next step is to confirm my proposals for scenarios, sketch out some tables, work out in more detail what troops and specific scenery items we need and then get input from the interested parties.

I could then draft out a high-level "teaser" for the PP website on how PBI can readily be expanded to different table and force sizes, with Crete as a specific example (but not going into too much detail that might change over time).

I was in any case thinking of doing an article for The Mill on the thought process to date and how things are shaping up: I could then provide an update in subsequent issues (and we can all laugh at how much things will have changed by then...).

Does this sound like a plan?

Simon
