COI was great! Much better than my memory.
Exactly. White on black just oozes cool. I use them often too.I like 'em. I use 'em. It's an extra tray among many - big whoop. Don't always dig 'em out, but sometimes I do because they look cool. Yeah, I said it. Sue me.
All right,buddy, you called for it...Somethings just look good in black, like Batman or Orc armies. Unfortunately the SS do too. Remember, don't take life too seriously.
The reason Batman in the comics and film turned darker later, was to distance itself from the campy show of the 60's.All right,buddy, you called for it...
Even Batman's attire had more of the German blueish grey to it in the original comics (and movies) I believe. Batman turned black only later.
I'm not a scenario master, but aren't there several that include both French and Allied Minor (either Belgian or Norwegian) forces together? Kinda handy to know at a glance whether the 'allied forces' rule is applicable without having to check a side record of counter IDs.With reference to the "and What Not" portion of this thread, one must realize that if you fault black SS counters for "unnecessary duplication" then the same logic would call for tossing out the Allied Minors who are essentially French by numbers and nature, or toss out the French who are essentially Allied Minors by numbers and nature, not to mention all those duplicative terrain overlays.
Yes, I've played several of those scenarios (Journal #3 had plenty). Not once did the "allied forces" rule come into play. The allied forces were always far enough apart to avoid "sharing" leaders. It could have come up, and a side note is never welcome, but all things considered the "allied forces" rule is rarely invoked. In fact, in my entire 40-year ASL career I recall using that rule twice, once with Germans and Italians and once with Germans and Romanians.I'm not a scenario master, but aren't there several that include both French and Allied Minor (either Belgian or Norwegian) forces together?
