An Officer Answers

01:14:45 – Mr Taylor asks “What elements make for a good North Africa board? I noticed in the DAK book that BF had a lot of rocky, hilly, close terrain. While it looks good in a picture, would it make for a good board? What’s your favourite piece of North Africa terrain?”

01:19:30 – Petter asks “Why oh why must we wait until may to get the bulge German book?”

01:21:15 –  Roy asks “Couple of questions.
1. Sell me on the Chaffee.
2. I struggle to make the US ARP effective, especially in Mid War where if they go anywhere they struggle to dig in and for a big unit don’t actually have that many stands that can assault.”

01:24:45 – Geoff asks “For the historical minded list builder. Would you prefer in bigger games (100pt+ and larger than the standard 6×4 table) to double up light tank formations so you would have two companies/squadrons of light tanks OR sprinkle in more medium/heavy tank options within the formation/force? This isn’t about overwhelming a tournament opponent with a lot of AT5-7 and FP4/5. Think your friendly Barn games.”

01:28:45 – Kyle Stop-Person asks “Why does the TOG 2*, the longest of the tanks, not simply eat the other tanks? If a pack of them wandered into my shopping cart and onto my painting table, how do I use such a slow glass cannon effectively?”

01:32:10 – Joel asks “I recently shredded my opponents M60A1 force with ATGM from my BMP-2 motor rifle battalion. Are BMPs the most under-appreciated unit for Soviet or Pact players? or are M60s just that bad?”

01:34:43 – Scott asks “So who among you three is the better player? How about among the entire BTA staff?”

Events

01:38:38 – We talk upcoming events and look forward to DAK! DAK GOES FOURTH!

Shoot and Scoot (and Hidden Track)

01:53:05 – We make like the Old Gang and call it a day.  Will we Shoot and Scoot.
