Hi Guys, I'm missing BFP pages 3-5. What was on them? I've got the Japanese Paratrooper rules (pages 1&2) and then the B&J Aircraft rules (pages 6+). What comes between them? Thanks.

They were in BtB2 & Operation Cobra, specific rules to those sets (terrain, aircraft, etc.)

Recommend a Sticky to this for at least 90 days.
Given it's in a low traffic forum (there's a thread on page 1 with a last post in August), I'm guessing a Sticky isn't really mandatory, is it?

Kudos on the quick recognition & dispersal of errata BTW...

Was looking at the 1/2" sheet and saw two dm'd AT counters, German grey on the front and SS black on the back. Are those replacements from something previous?

Replacements for the dm Raketenwerfer 43 counters provided in Operation Cobra (BFP2). The original ones are 5/8".

They are replacements for the 5/8" dm Püppchen counters in BFP2 "Operation Cobra". The 8.8 cm Püppchen was included as both blue and black 5/8" ordinance versions. As ordinance the non-dm versions were correctly done in 5/8", but the dm version should have been 1/2". As everything else on the single counter sheet was 5/8", it would have been difficult/almost-impossible to just have 2 1/2" counters so the 5/8" were done to get players by until a product with 1/2" counters came out.

I think I found one more small errata.

In BFP55 the Japanese balance has the US replacing 4 666 squads with 4 667's and the US balance has 4 666 squads replaced by 4 546's - I'm guessing this should be the opposite.

Very good, thanks. I shall presently add the 5/8" versions to my jar of purple Germans.
LOL. I have one of those! The only thing that sucks about it is that there's a unique AFV not found anywhere else.

Ohh, this sounds like I'm approaching mortal sin territory. I relegated all the purple people to the jar. That's bad? But, I left the lid off so they can breathe.

Do what I did: keep the vehicles in, put the infantry in the "retired" jar (box in my case) with the blue Finns and errataed counters. You really don't need any more 467s, I'm sure.

I have found some more errata! In "Curly & The Brigadier" BFP-62 the Brit reinforcements of T4 are supposed to enter on the east edge of board 32. This cannot be as it is in the middle of the playing area.

I also do not understand why one turn was removed from the playing time of this scenario! I've played this one from TT and the Brit player ran out of time even when it was 8 turns long. The Brit has got a lot of searching to do to find the pillboxes; this all takes time.

The direction arrow on BFP 62 should be pointing to the left instead at the top of the page. It should also have 8 turns instead of 7. If you download this sticky errata dated 20100128, there is an update for the arrow that you can put onto that scenario card and an updated turn record.

Remember for the US Letter-sized pdf, print on Avery 5265 with scaling and resizing turned off.

Even though this isn't listed on the terrain charts, I am assuming that hexes for example like BFP G D9, BFP DW-1b R14, and BFP DW-1a L4 are lumberyard hexes, yes?

Yes. You are correct. They are lumberyards.
