    Missing Counter?

    Some nations have 'static' MG mounts (AA versions) as ordnance counters -- What would a water-cooled M2 .50 cal be? 10-16? The original photo claimed is was a USMC weapon on Guadalcanal.

    OK, here's another SSR:

    Premise: minor objectives controlled can be used to gain DRMs to modify reinforcement roll. Rule as I am wording it now: : 4) For each of buildings 76H5 and 76M3 controlled by the partisan player at the end of each game turns 1-3, he receives one DRM point. Each DRM point is exchanged for...

    US 2nd Infantry Division in Normandy

    I have recently read several sources claiming that the US 23rd (and possibly 38th) Infantry Regiments of 2 ID landed at D +1 equipped with Springfield 1903 bolt-action rifles rather than M1 Garands. Apparently the Col in command did not like the ammo usage on the M1. (a 6+1 for sure) The GIs...

    Scenario Designer's bucket list

    Let's start with Beyond Valor and Yanks: Are there any vehicles/ gun counters which have yet to be included in a scenario? Official vs TPP? Any of you uber-geeks keeping track of this on a spreadsheet or some other method? I'll see if I can work them in to some of my current projects :)

    How many 'encircled' counters in the game?

    Question for the armory geeks: How many 'encircled' markers came with Beyond Valor? Did any come with other core modules or official HASLs? Thanks

    Got a sneak-preview of this one tonight. Verdict: If you like the 3-D technology, this one is worth a couple extra bucks. If you like strong plot and characters, see Star Wars again instead. (in fact, they borrowed so much, I thought I was watching Darth Vader and OBi-Wan Kenobi...

    HBO's "The Pacfic"

    I can't bring myself to subscribe to HBO just for this. The DVD set will likely top my Christmas list, however. One old local jarhead doesn't want to wait:

    Change the foxhole rule? (B27.4)

    Should rule B27.4 be changed to make foxhole movement consistent with routing from a foxhole? (extra MP to enter/exit foxhole is combined with COT to allow unit cover of the FH throughout the entire one-hex movement.) Should this be allowed for all movement, or just Assault-moving units?

    Michael Moore at it again...

    Just in time for election season, with a new target: Sicko is Socko | TIME The only one of his movies I've actually seen is Bowling for Columbine. I found the assessment of American gun culture interesting, but he lost me when he went off that into more general criticisms. With that, the...
