General Discussion and Announcements / Re: Rommel on the kitchen table

That works surprisingly well.

Normally I am not a fan of "boardgame" style stats bars on figure bases and have to admit to thinking a 3" square would be too small, but I am genuinely impressed with the way that looks.

Nicely done.

General Discussion and Announcements / Upcoming Multiplayer Game
« Last post by shadojack on Today at 06:56:24 AM »
I'm planning on hosting a 8-12 person game.  I'm thinking a 5 by 9 foot table, each player gets their own combat element (Kampfgrup, Regimental Combat Team) and their own Ops sheet.  What do you think?  Potential problems? Pitfalls to avoid?

The 8th Army has just crossed the Lamone River, heading for Bologna, only to be counter attacked by the 90th Panzer Grenadier Division near the city of Faenza.

Lasalle Rules Questions / Re: Fighting over a bridge

Hi, yes I read the article and it also doesnt specify what formation crossing a bridge into an enemy unit would constitute.  As for manoeuvre, you are right and I will edit it.

Thanks

House Rules and Options / Rare units 88mm Flak18Sfl
« Last post by Gary1946 on April 17, 2018, 05:23:46 PM »
Ok, trying to make a unit.

There were two companies of Flak18Sfl and a few special units of 88s towed and fired without unlimbering. I am not sure how to treat them. I have modeled two companies but not sure how to grade them. They were Rare but very effective vs French Bis1 tanks and as bunker busters in France and the early campaign in Russia.

The “Eighty Eights” tactic could reflect this without changing anything.
The other possibility would be to allow a Flak 18Sfl company (Rare) in an early German Army.  Maybe [2-1-1  1-6].
For the bunker buster role….(how about double combat number attacking prepared positions?)
At times, 88s were very effective even in small numbers.

I know it is a lot of thought for one or maybe two units, but that is what some of us do. ???

By the way, surely the charge should be made in the Maneuver phase, not the Reaction phase?

Historical Scenarios / Re: Hannut 1940
« Last post by Gary1946 on April 16, 2018, 05:52:29 AM »
I understand but am disappointed. :'(
This is one of the games I want to put on at Bayou Wars in June.
I also have been working on Desert War games if I can't get Hannut ready.
I am scheduled to run three games of Rommel and one of Blucher. A lot to iron out to make good games for walk up gamers.

I had to put Rommel on the back-burner owing to lack of club interest and other pressures on my time, but I’d be very interested to hear of any trials of this scenario. I believe there is enough to be getting on with and will respond to any reports. We will also consider revising the scenario as appropriate.
