Hi Guys! I am the author of the consolidated rules that you are using. I am interested in your thoughts as you play. With a game of this size, it is impossible to extensively play-test any rules revisions, so any observations or insights that you have are welcome. Here are some thoughts from me and the others who participated in last year's playing at the Texas Team Tournament: The NOBA was too strong. The American BB and CA NOBA fire was rubbling the German positions easily and too quickly. During game play, we dropped the number of black cards in the NOBA decks from 4 (NRBH, but I think that is correct) to 2. Also, we felt that way too many AFVs were on the beach. Historically, most of the AFVs in the first wave were disembarked in DD mode well off shore and had to swim in, with most being lost. I am working on a rules tweak to this. We felt that each German OBA module except the rocket OBA should be allowed a preregistered hex. Lastly, I neglected to create rules for counterbattery NOBA fire against the German OBA. What do you think about this? Thank you, John
Hello. Im preparing Omaha West for a 3 days event in Normandy in November. Currently, I try to decipher the above rules concerning Tobruk :Ohhh we have many,

TOBRUK/PANZERSTELLUNG: Two additional type of new Pillbox counters [...] The solid ring around the "SW" notation indicates that the LOS of SW beneath the Tobruk is not restricted in any portion of their CA (i.e., their Field-of-Fire is 360°).
Just looking at that damned seawall gives me a cold sweat (and I was the Germans)!
