Readers will know that we Bart and I are very keen on Blitzkrieg Commander, after two successful games. Both were tactically interesting, fast to play and with some funny moments. What more do you want?
The problem is that it seems to work best in a small scale. This is not a problem, actually, but good sense. For the price of one tank in 15mm (5 pounds or 8 euros) you can buy about 15 little 1:300 beasts. I’m quite fond of my 15mm 1940 material, so I’ll hang onto them and play PBI 2 or something with them.
I will sell my 1944 British (anyone interested? 40 or so infantry, 6 Cromwells, 2 Challengers, 2 Stuarts, 1 17iber with tow, 2 6lbers, 1 Daimler a/c). Nicely painted and based (of course ;)
So for 6mm or 1:300. Kurt has gone berserk and ordered some GHQ Yanks. A slightly eccentric choice (sorry, Dave). But interesting. He will have, of course, to be encouraged to get some 1944 Boche as well as an opponent.
Bart has reclaimed his desert stuff and is desperate to do 1940.
I am torn between all these things and also Russia 1941-43…
It seems a bit daft to do 1940 in both 6mm and 15mm.
The desert war is an interesting theatre, could maybe do O’Connor and the Italians, ie the fun before the beastly Rommel came along and spoiled things
If I sell my 15mm 1944, then that might also be an option, as the Brit stuff is quite fun at this stage and there are plenty of interesting actions. And in 6mm we can play in a big scale
