At a minimum, any 'new/improved ' Free French counters should have an increased broken morale level, i.e., the same as that on the unbroken side.I just hope they redesign the French OOB to make the Free French represented by their own counters and not a wacky mix like we have now.
The way I see it, originally it was a cost cutting measure for something they probably though would have few scenarios, so the effort wasn't worth it. Now I think things are different, so hopefully it is changed for the next release.
Free French infantry are represented by British counters anyway, so there is no need for such a change.At a minimum, any 'new/improved ' Free French counters should have an increased broken morale level, i.e., the same as that on the unbroken side.
The combat record of Free French forces in North Africa, Italy, France 1944 would certainly seem to support this change.
Excellent avatar BTW.
Thank you, I'm aware of A25.5.Free French infantry are represented by British counters anyway, so there is no need for such a change.
Those were the points that I was underlining in my question.You want the Free French to have a higher broken morale than British counters? Sounds unlikely to me (pending yet-to-be-cited historical evidence to the contrary, of course).
If you want them to have higher broken morale than regular French counters, then with a wave of my magic wand, I declare that to be already and always true. Free French don't use French infantry counters. A25.5 is not the rule that you need to be aware of, it's A25.53. All the details are there.
Depends on the color chosen. I personally would like to see them have their own nationality color.Those were the points that I was underlining in my question.
I don't see why Free French should have better broken morale than British.
About having Free French in another colour than British tan, it could be anoying when they are opposing Vichy units (in Syria, for example).
When did I ever say that?You want the Free French to have a higher broken morale than British counters?
This!I'd rather keep the set of "official" counter colors at its current level - my tower of Raaco boxes is high enough as it is (the ASL gear lies in a spare bedroom, and I have to explain the thing to each incredulous guest that stays home for a night or two).
So, I'm perfectly happy with the Free French using British counters. I did buy BFP's Poland in Flames, but I'd be even happier with it if it had just used the standard Allied Minor color scheme for the Poles. More of the same isn't what I'm after, even to represent my own nation's Free French.
Almost all of the Provence Pack, for 1.One could conceive two tone Free French counters : blue in the center, tan on the border.
That way, they could use British equipement and would be distinguished from the Vichy French.
One thing that I don't quite understand in the present CdG mix, are the American green coloured vehicles.
I would make them tan, as I don't recall any Free French infantry using American infantry units.
BTW, I don't seem to remember any scenario with those green coloured French vehicles ever being used...
