Thanks Tony and Martin, much appreciated. I noted the distribution of Lewis guns with interest: I expected one per section as the Brens were divided in 39-45, but it seems to have been a little different. Looking at the German ‘light’ MG, I’m not surprised they were envious of the Lewis!
February 1915 according to: https://www.longlongtrail.co.uk/army/regiments-and-corps/machine-gun-corps-in-the-first-world-war/ Not sure of the source for this, or how quickly it was implemented. No idea about the French I am afraid.
Excellent, thanks. I stupidly didn’t think of LLT.
No idea sorry, do like the username though!
Darkest Star: won’t put bases in them as I’m looking at 1 base = company and/or battalion
All: thanks for the great suggestions. Plenty of food for thought!
I have some 6mm ACW but 2mm seems another world again. Fun though. Will consider the 3mm
‘With our Backs to the Wall’ by David Stevenson. Not short, but an excellent read that not only gives a strong account of Michael but also the 100 days and the broader context.
Newbie to the forum here (but not to forums!). Thanks for posting a great looking game, Thuseld. I’m a big fan of Battlegroup but play in 15mm. Seeing your 6mm is really inspiring! I have 6mm ACW and have often thought of 6mm WWII but get easily corrupted by friends…
On the need for supplements, I wouldn’t let that put one off. There are such disparities between different periods and theatres that it would be very difficult to contain in a single set. Some, like Blitzkrieg Commander have gone about this through different army lists for each period/theatre. In essence, this is what BG does, but has a lot more detail for each unit due to the level of the game. For me, I have armies suitable for the 43-45 period in Western Europe (incl. Italy). Buying a supplement for an earlier theatre/period would be a luxury rather than a necessity as playing it would involve whole new armies.
I’ve played the Overlord lists and Fall of the Reich, using Western allies vs Germans. I also own the Torch lists, and the Bulge and Market Garden supplements. The difference in feel between each theatre is palpable, with the chits also different for Fall of the Reich.
