    Please see here and here for two re-fights of a D-Day scenario first published in Battlegames 27, when the Green Howards and 4/7 Royal Dragoon Guards are pushing forward to try and reach their H+24 objectives…

    Enjoyable, thanks and a scenario that plays to the strengths of 6mm. There was a chap who in his scenarios declared that a game would last for as many turns as your rules allow infantry to move between points A and B (A and B were usually opposite sides of the table), which seemed a very flexible approach.

    Thanks for these great reports and a hefty dose of nostalgia. WRG rules were the first WW2 rules I played and I still have some affection for them.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Thanks both.  I have found the WRG 1925-1950 to be both relatively simple and solid and haven’t seen much reason to change.

    Those games reinforce my decision to make my stalled 6mm WW2 project a priority this year.

    So many questions though:

    1. How have you made your terrain mat?

    2. How have you made your 6mm roads? Felt?

    3. How have you made the hedgerows? Are they just clump foliage on lolly sticks or something?

    Nice looking game and it’s nice to see a 6mm game that isn’t hundreds of tanks.
    You can do smaller battles in small scales too 🙂

    Hi,

    With regards to the terrain mat, look here and here.

    The roads are just roofing felt with some parts of the edges flocked in parts to help blend it in.

    Yes, the hedgerows are clump foliage stuck onto semi-cylindrical dowel, painted dark brown.

    All very easy stuff.  The terrain mat feels daunting but once you actually lay the stuff out, it is really simple.

    Great reports Whirlwind! What was the AI system that you were using?

    Hi,

    Thank you.  The AI is a system called the Threat Generation System, which was published in Miniature Wargames magazine a while ago.
