An Officer Answers
01:18:50 – Mike asks “Doing a lot of work with terrain for desert at the moment with the BIG table. In 15mm what kind of cool features make for memorable boards? Have you got any boards you have played on that you remember fondly?”
01:21:45 – Chris asks “What do you perceive to be the most cost effective version of the M1?”
01:23:45 – Luke asks “Do you think the non Soviet Warsaw pact armies will get any new gear or rules? In the face of these new American and British books I don’t think Polish or East German forces are a good match anymore.”
01:26:30 – William White asks “MLRS thoughts? Since you are re-rolling misses (who takes less than 3?) but have a FP of 5+ do you take this because with the salvo template you’re bound to have a bunch of FP rolls and will make some or do you take this for the 2 mine fields and the fact that you’re pretty much guaranteed to hit and pin Infantry.”
01:29:00 – Steven asks “I’ve been steadily reducing my pile of shame,. What items have been in your piles for ages?”
01:32:00 – Brent asks “what are your thoughts on how the Firestorm Gazala campaign went, and do you have other campaign plans in the works? Market Garden has been mentioned a couple of times now.”
