"Anybody who bought the French OB have pics? Thinking about buying a set since my AH era French are looking pretty worn down."--Gunner Scott

For those of you attending the NIASL gameday at Joe's place this coming Saturday, know that I will be bringing with me Broken Ground Counter sheets for sale. You'll at least save on shipping.

What the heck of vehicle is that?! 28 MG factors?

von Marwitz
Fiat 2000, a WW1 design that might have see some combat service in Libya post WW1. It was armed with a 65/17 howitzer and 7 HMG, 1 on each corner and 1 in the middle of each side and rear with a crew of 10. Originally it was to have 10 MG (!!!). Only 2 built. Try entering into CCV with that.

A slide show:

EDIT: I think footsteps got it pretty spot on, though the field of fire diagram for the MGs would be both amusing and complex. It's more like an old sailing ship of the line, "Give 'em a broadside, my hearties!".

There was a gaggle of orders over the weekend, yours included, which wiped out what was left. ;)

I've finished creating the 1/2" counters for Japanese, GMD, USMC, and PA, and hope to have them laid out for proofing in the next few weeks. The 5/8" counters are going to be extra work.
