The British ones are mostly ruined for me because of the plum accents. Do you know any good British ones without the silly accent or where they are in the minority?Big Al wrote:Kelly's Heroes is always on! Great, fun film.
No, IronIvan are based in the US and do conventions there. We did a game at Triples a couple of years ago based on the Hallamshires during Epson, it being a local regiment here in Sheffield. A friend also ran a game a few weeks ago for the Society of Twentieth Century Wargamers. I was supposed to help him, but a family crisis stopped me attending. Whether or not there was a write up in their Journal, I couldn't tell you. I'm not a member.
I was looking for battle reports using the DH rules on youtube. Couldn't find anything. Will check and see if I can see anything about the Society of Twentieth Century Wargamers.
I have to agree with you about the films. I think that has more to do with Hollywood. They like to portray us Brits with that sort of accent and they also have a tendency to change history and don't have us doing the things in films that we did in life. However, there are still one or two old ones which are very good.
