Nat gave the right answer. The problem came from the original organisation.
A Prussian Brigade had a Line Regiment of 3 Battalions (2 Musketeer / 1 Fusilier), a Reserve regiment of 3 Battalions and a Landwehrregiment of 3 – 4 Battalions.
Regimental CO was a Lt. Colonel but often a Major was doing the job.
Brigade CO was a…[Read more]0
The ca. 100 men at the Beijing Radio Station in Italian concession under Lt. Cmdr. Baldassarre had been a mix from army and navy. The Navy officers and OR wore white naval tropical dress, the OR had a Khaki drill one that some may have worn. The army guys wore the standard tropical khaki uniform . They had only light arms.

Well, not enjoying modelling and painting is a big problem for a gamer. Some just buy ready made armies, a question of money.
Something I would never do, for me that is 3/4 of the fun. Esp. some converions. I just finished my Blitzkrieg and Pionier sprues (the same, just extra metal parts) from two boxes. I did them in groups of 8 – 12.…[Read more]0
My base of choice is high enough to give a good grip option. Not making the guys touch the miniature. Much less breaking or bending.
It is also easier to paint with such a handle. Clear plastic is no option for me. It is not invisible. And my big guns are far too heavy, my 21 cm mortar would break clear plastic.
My material is cheap…[Read more]0
Hmm, that RM project looks like a peasant’s cart, not a military one.
Why are peoples not using the superb Warlord one?
New stuff? I would be much more happy with a field kitchen or the German amo cart.0

Officers and NCO should lead, not kill 😉0
Hmm, “to use it to carry a mortar/MMG Team” sounds like you intent to use it as troop transport like a lorry. It was None. The Heeresfeldwagen carried some amo and the baggage. Sometimes some footsore Or hitched a ride but and it was not allowed to travel on it if the feet are OK.
It was no vehicle that would be seen in first line. Just in r…[Read more]0
Oh you young peopes, old gamers like me started in pre internet time and got nothing but books. (And had to walk 15 miles through snow to school 😉 )
The Schweres Maschinengewehr Lafette had some high settings to offer best arc of fire and cover combination. So the Warlord Version is not unusual.
I tried to take an explaining pic from my…[Read more]0
I did nothing extra, so yes, it fell into position.0
Hmmm, I did the Blitzkrieg one at it had the correct angle.0
There was near to no chance to see a submerged mine. Even the contact mine was deep enough to be invisible. So normally S-Boote and MTB could pass contact mine fields without risk.
The magnetic, pressure or sound mines are very difficult to clear. There are settings that made them immune to the first contacts in a given time, so a Sperrbrecher…[Read more]0
The best sourches are original items and contemporary Color drwings.
You find them for example in the classic Japanese language book Imperial Japanese Army and Navy Uniforms and Equipment. Sold in UK by Arms & Armour Press in 1975.

We are concerned with the era 1770 – 1830. So a any action of 1741 is …. . My old German university teachers woud have said: “Thema verfehlt, Setzen . Sechs.” (Wrong Topic, sit down, worst note possible) And same those at my Oxford time.
Worse. It was a siege. Intended to win a town. Fought at the coast and in harbor. It was not…[Read more]0
Hmm, the Sturmtiger was designed for street fighting, but was rarely used in that role. The only true one was in Warsaw uprising.
Two from Sturm Mörser Kompanie 100 being part of Kampfgruppe SS-Ogruf. von dem Bach (Abt. Ia Tgb-Nr. 110/4/44 g)

Over size or real world?0
Seems the rule is not mich used????
I got questions about the gun in background. It’s a 21 cm Mörser 18, the main heavy gun of Wehrmacht. More than 700 made and in front use.
The metal model is from a German maker. Some 30+ years old and very rare today. It was long on my wishing list. The maker only delivered it assembled and so th…[Read more]0
I just painted the guy with the camera, it was long n my boxes but last week I did a gun and needed a miniature for showig the size.
Hs anyone used the War correspondent rules from Campaign Battle of France p. 96?0
Well, hmmmm. The problem is Action dress. The slung pelisse cave some protection against sword cuts as did the busby and Tschako.
So many Hussars came to the dance without but put them on directly before action.
But doing the classic hussar work – scouting? Riding for hours in heat and dust?0
PM sent. 😉
Yes, the original Light Dragoons had Hussar Dress in Peninsula. Before there was a slow Change from light draggon Dress in 1st and 2nd. The 3rd Regiment was the first to appear completely in hussar fashion, as its colonel Johann Georg v. Reden procured fur to add to the pelisse, introduced the fur cap and allowed the wearing of…[Read more]0
Well,in that fun game the obvious weapon is missing at all – The hand grenade.
Even if not shooting you find no full cover in real world. trench, dug out, a room in a ruin….. all not very comfortable if someone lobs a grenade inside.
The writers sometimes forgot that. The Standard rifleman should be able to hit targets at short ranges even in…[Read more]0
