Oh, and i got my copy this morning...nearly missed the train cos of it but it's here. On first impressions i'm happy. Things look more balanced, the style is a nice combo of the WAW book and the old one - i do miss the colour myself. Am hoping to get a game in on Saturday to see how it works on the ...

lol missprint.. all i say is rub your chin and ponder at the technical !!!! why is a gun with (fxf) missprint more exspensive than the same gun with 360 !!!!!! Not a misprint - if you add a second MG to a Technical, the two weapons become greater than the sum of their parts (a Technical with 2 MGs ...

I like this idea, it has a good feel to it. Could make a good advanced rule.

Anything that contributes to fog of war without being OTT is good IMO.

Cheers, guys. I will give it a try at some point as i have the mini's.

I can see the logic in it's ommision but it could be useful to represent historic formations or a bit points shaving.

Thanks for the answers :)

.30 Cal MG's [WAW]

Might be a stupid question (not being an arms expert) but 30.cals are not in the armory section for US infantry. I thought they were very prominent in WW2. Is it a deliberate omission?

Great review! Think it really showed the spirit of the game well and recognised it's aims. Also with fair comments on the past without really laying into mongoose. Shall keep my eyes open for the battle report it mentions.

Yeah, totally know what you mean with the rep issues. I've ordered the book and got some 1/72 WW2 stuff around and one willing opponent from my group. We plan to have a game next game day and see if people will be more interested when they see the game working. I've not mentioned it on purpose gener...

I've run a few games in the past based on an idea inthe Avalon Hill game "Patton's Best". Reading WW2 action reports from Normandy it soon becomes apparent that Allied troops often misidentified enemy tanks as Tigers and AT guns as 88s whereas in most cases they were less lethal PzIVs and 75s or wo...

So effectively mongoose have no quality control over these liecenced and logo'ed supplements? That is a bit disapointing. I realise of course that some of these will be works of absolute genius but then inevitably some will not. They will be reknowned for not being right but then it depends. Lot's ...

I'm playing devil's advocate here. But if two books exist covering exactly the same material is that going to cause issues to new gamers? If you get the 'wrong' one will you want to fork out again for a slightly better version of it. Does the concept of there being a 'better' version do any harm? W...

It will reward those who get organised quickest. I you take eight months to write your desert war supplement and the other guy takes six, then you're stuffed. Competition is only equal if they are released at the same time. But is it the best business approach to have people effectively re-writing ...

To be fair it's a long way from the worst games cover i've seen and far from the worst art mongoose has published. That said, yeah not stunning. My fav WW2 rule set "Rules of engagement" by Great escape games has a horrible cover but the inside of teh book is excellent. No dodgy drawings inside just...

Until I see an errata, I'd play it like it is.

I love this idea! My group often plays games with occasional members turning up without an army and enlisting with another player. It's also how we bring in new players to a game. It would be cool if there was a proper process for this. In one of the ancient games we play players need runners to com...

Does anyone remember the Computer game by Westwood? (i think)

I LOVED that game. All these years later it still pops into my head every now and then.

First game i ever owned that had 4 CD's. I think i'll hit google about it and find me some nostalgia.
