Italy it is a bit like gaming the desert War , everything sort of looks the same every timeand in Rapid fire a sure way to slow a game down is have lots of steep hills.

I think Italy would be interesting, some different units such as the Herman Goering Division, Elephants, lot's of turrets planted in bunkers etc. Not quite Italy but the SoGGy 2013 which was cancelled was going to be Operation Husky

Sicily is defeinetly on my radar. The conversation started off there but got deflected into a wider discussion of Italy, but my focus remains on Husky.

thx

Its all in one's imagination, historical knowledge, nd how such things are recreated.

Gentlemen (and Cardinal in particular)

Just wondering how I should treat LMG teams for Rapid Fire. In the Normandy OBs they aren't mentioned; I assume on the grounds that that are part of the "Rifle" head count. However, I would like to paint and field them for the look of the thing and also as intend to try other platoon level rules such as Chain of Command.

Would anyone object if I field my LMG teams as part of Rifle "companies".

Photos of my first two battalions (sans transport) later today.

thanks

yes The LMG is part of the rifle company. Germans of course get a plus 1 on the die roll everyday types with anMG 42 while Panzer grenadiers , and for the the comp, FJ , get a plus 2 on their die roll. fearsome thing the MG42

I'm going to give the rules a try for the first time very soon. Only got 6mm Germans and Russians to use, and need to come up with a bit more scenery, too. Although I'm slightly concerned about the scale, having a liking for 1 WW2 figure or tank = 1, but hoping this rules system works out well anyway.
