00:06:20 – Eddie has been painting… nothing.  But he has been building and also sourced a British Commonwealth blister, the swine!


BR768 – Cock in hand

00:11:00 – Lee is painting the best gun of the war!  Or at least its crew.

An Officer Answers

02:04:15 – Chris asks “My question is about the T27 Xylophone Rocket Launcher Battery. I have never used these….are they similar to the nebelwerfer and are they worth the points? Looking to pick up the new box set when its released”

02:08:50 – Jacob asks “Will Jumbo’s be worth the points? And how best would they be used?”

02:10:10 – Maximal Fire asks “There is a rumour I love the Corsair maniple in Titanicus. Assuming this rumour is true help me work out whichever flames of war army is the most like a Corsair maniple?”

02:11:30 – Geesi Aitchqueue asks “We are willing to support your betting proclivities, Duncan, in exchange for some information. Where, precisely, can one find these Iranian Cobras of which you speak so highly? (Our mathematical analysis tells us that Eddie, as a logical rational actor, will finish all the items one day before the UK rejoins the EU)
Eddie, Flying Fezs have been spotted near Gatwick. We are on to you. Do tell us when you might have some new designs available.
Lee. Lee, Lee, Lee, Lee Lee. We haven’t a question for you, for we already know the answer… (insert creepy smiley wink here)
Since we have heard all about the American’s Bulge, and we are prone to moving on to the next thing, please share which model release each of you are most looking forward to having in your hands when you get a hold of the German’s Bulge.”

02:17:40 – Battleraizer asks “How do I play a Basij only army for a win?”

02:19:25 – Brent asks “Are there units or equipment in this book that are cover elements of Market Garden, or does this book jump past all that and focus exclusively on Battle of the Bulge?”

02:20:00 – Ryan asks “Are there special rules for the Jumbos like the one from V3 “Jumbos Lead the Way”? Perhaps a new version that makes it easier to move shots to the Jumbo with mistaken target?”

02:21:00 – Xander asks “In the previous edition the easy 8 shermans had further bonuses over regular shermans to firing on the move due to their smooth ride and stabilizers. Are there any rules in this edition that are similar?
Also, should I bother painting up my Pershings?”

02:21:30 – William asks “Do you think there will be rules for super green Infantry companies or even the v3 Perimeter Defense Companies with a bunch of fortifications? After reading the excellent book “Death of a Division” I have always found the 106th Infantry Division interesting.”

02:22:15 – Petter asks “No V3 shenanigans I hope? Like the “all hits go on the Jumbo”?”

02:22:20 – Ollie asks “How many Jackson turrets do I need to paint up to interchange with my M10s from DDay 🙂”

02:22:45 – Cilla asks “Can I make use of my warrior teams from band of brothers?”

02:23:00 – Berkay asks “What formations does the book contain?
An overview of the units would be nice.
Some interesting card options if you have them.
Hell spoil the whole release if you can! But I’ll be happy with these for now.”

02:23:15 – Duncan asks… wait, he’s one of us!  None the less he asks how we feel about the book.

  1. Fan of the recce section mortar reporting in! I’ve had good luck with them pinning AT guns and towed artillery, and picking off the occasional AT infantry stand. The real joy of them is how disruptive a single jeep can be to your enemy when they fail those rally checks at the most inconvenient times. I’ve run the armored recon command card in a 60pt game and being able to fling templates in all directions was great, even with re-rolling hits,
