    Did we do this right--ATG and gully and crest status

    OK the scenario was FISH TO FRY from the Schwerpunkt people Wayne Boudreaux, my opponent, placed a 45LL ATG HIP, in a WOODS hex (totally legit so far) that was in a gully (again legit) and placed him in CREST status (not so legitimate) I say the CREST status is a NO GO. Wadi rules talk about...

    RED DEVILS from the recent FORGOTTEN WAR

    Played this as the CPVA vs. Jeff De Young and the US Army. I WILL NOTE.....I think Jeff lost for 2 reasons. 1-his perimeter was too close to the guns 2-He gave in to the temptation of firing the guns at my onboard forces, giving me a VP each time. He did this 4 times. TWO of the guns I...

    Did we do this right? CC and Melee edition

    Ok in 32 years of ASL....a unique one. In the scenario CRICKETS IN SPRING I was playing David Ginnard. He had a Panther break his MA, then roll a 6, recall. I then IMMOBed the tank in a Melee because I wanted the CVPs. I then argued that the crew has to bail because it already was...

    German motorcycle troops question

    Ok so early in World War 2, the Germans had units that were equipped with motorcycles, essentially dragoons if you think Napoleonics. Did they keep that up thru the entire war? Or at what point did they stop using them? And for what reason ie cost? Maintenance? Change from blitzkrieg to...

    BFP 27 Chapei Chopblock

    Played this one last night vs. Wayne Boudreaux. I was the IJA, and it was a hoot! I lost a good two thirds of my force but in turn destroyed the Chinese force to a man. He did one mistake in his setup--the Chinese guns since they are small targets CAN be in bldgs. He should have had 1...

    Between Rockets and a Hard Place pre game

    WEll I have done a Russian setup Looks tough on both sides, but tougher on the Soviets. Like the SSR that lets the Soviets put their tanks in Rubble AND get them as tanks that are dug in. It's gonna be ugly that's for sure.......

    There's no crying in Stalingrad

    Just like there's no crying in baseball, there's no crying in Stalingrad. I played Jeff DY in SANDBANKS OF THE VOLGA today (from the last DISPATCHES) and that was his great quote before we started rolling dice. He needed it too, b/c his dice sucked. He conceded turn 4 when his last unit...
