  1. Very well, you Faux Internationalist Git. Mind you, the cat hates it when I chase him and he can't get any purchase. It's just like in the cartoons with him going all sideways and bouncing off walls. Noba. Oi! When did you peek into my house?
  2. After many years of CM games with Fred, I finally got to meet him at his home on Long Island back in July. We had a good day and I found out he was a true gentleman. Another one gone, but not forgotten. Noba.
  3. Oh it's not that bad... I haven't seen a crocodile up close for about three years, or so. Mind you, I was out walking along a bush track yesterday and two kangaroos looked a bit miffed that I interrupted their late afternoon grazing. One actually snorted at me as he hopped away and he was a bit taller than me as well! Big bad claws on their hind feet! Noba.
  4. I'm still amazed he got that flamethrower through customs. Noba.
  5. It's a pity that you are on the West Side of your country, I will be in NYC, Washington DC and Las Vegas in July.... I would like to throw rocks at you as well. Best laid plans, and all that. Noba.
  6. C'mon... you know it turns you on. (Are you still in Reading? - I'm over that way in late June - I could throw some rocks as I pass the paddock). Noba.
  7. You would be referring to the Paddock Pony, obviously. But he has not been around since he caught a bad dose of Thistle Rot. It does terrible things to Donkeys' eyesight as well as the usual hide rot. Noba.
  8. I'm not sure how to respond other than maybe you can go play a game that you can afford, if money is your primary concern. But - If the quality is what you are looking for in respect to depth of play, and yes, value for your money, then the whole family of games or just one is well worth your investment. Hours of enjoyment if WW2 tactical games are your passion. As for the modding, a search of the forum will probably lead to you finding out that there are solid reasons that the game engine is not able to be changed by users. Regards. Noba.
  9. You obviously haven't been around that blowhard, Shaw after he's been on the turps! Noba.
  10. No. Go away and leave us in peace... let The MBT rot; such as yourselves. Noba.
  11. Not "maybe Boo". That describes both this thread and Boo. Boo, I'm back, send a turn - your punishment must continue. Noba.

    Italian Grenades?

    In the Australian Official History of the Second World War, volume 1 - "To Benghazi" by Gavin Long; there are two references to the ineffectiveness of Italian explosive fillers, one concerning grenades and then Italian weapons in general. "The Australians considered that nearly every sort of Italian weapon compared unfavourably to their own... ... the red-painted, thin skinned grenade was far less lethal than the British equivalent." There is a reference to a grenade exploding almost between a soldiers legs, wounding him only slightly. Regarding field guns: "...were of all sizes, shapes and vintages; shell fragmentation seemed poor and many men blown off their feet got up again." "Major Macfarlane was blown over twice by shells bursting four or five yards away but was not injured." If this level of detail is included in the game then perhaps yes, Italian grenades are reasonably well represented with peripheral damage possible but not penetrating enough to cause destruction.

    2015 Christmas Bones

    You are entitled to your opinion as much as anyone else who posts here. Your opinion is that the content should be free, because it’s a mod. Another poster disagrees with you and you try and stop the ‘discussion’ by saying “…it’s a mod…end of?” Sort of childish in a way to try and end discussion like that, no different to your ‘childish name calling’ comment? I’m sure you have looked at the price and decided you won’t buy the base game and by extension, any follow up modules or packs. Complaining about the price and then name calling about the person doing most of the work by calling him “grubby” is in my view a slur on someone you have (probably) never met or know anything about. An apology would be appropriate. Noba.
  15. I've told you too many times, you have to stop overcooking the meat, or go and buy the more expensive cuts. Cheapskate. Noba.
