  1. I had a LCpl like that - we'd send him off to the NAAFI for the section pie run at 0945 and by 1045 we'd be starving giving it 'Where the f@*! is LCpl X?' He'd usually roll back at about 1100 and explain that he'd been collared by a number of staff officers on the way to the NAAFI and on the way back and done odd jobs for them. LCpl X was 'moved on' a few months later...
  2. Of course - I made them with what was the 'trench' tile in CMSF-1 which would be cancelled out as you say. You've come up with a clever fix, have a like.
  3. Presumably by filling them with a shallow ford tile? I've not tried it, but conceptually that is how I would see it being done. Grateful if you could confirm that this was your solution.
  4. Nice work but, Hescos are filled with sand, rocks and dirt generally so to make your models more realistic I would change the colour of the tops of your Hesco models to a colour that best reflects those materials.
  5. A literal translation of 'Hammertime' into German = 'Hammerzeit' so from memory it is essentially the same scenario but with those pesky Germans vice the original Americans as the Blue Force. @George MCwill be able to confirm.
  6. I see my Qarmat Ali map is getting a good workout - quite flattered that my maps are being used to test @Aquila-CM's awesome work and @37mm's Heaven and Earth / Vietnam project.
  7. So who's going to be first to convert one of the amphibious vehicles to one of these bad boys then …
  8. That ship is a thing of beauty - very interested to see how that was done.
  9. Which is kinda why it took me about 30 tests to get the original scenario playable … so good luck with your endeavours 😉
  10. I just tweaked it my friend - the original CMSF 1 scenario, AI, map and concept was by @MarkEzra - The changes I made were fairly minor such as making the map look a little more realistic, some changes to the narrative and briefings, adding a couple of units to the Red force, thinning out the British support assets a bit and tweaking the AI to make use of the targeting command which didn't previously exist in CMSF 1. I regard it as more his work than mine but thanks for the compliment anyway - have a like and really pleased that you enjoyed it.
  11. No just easy-peasy - I recognised the compound straight away, I lost count of the number of times I tested that mission before kicking it out of the doors.
  12. I've looked into this too and got one map done and it would make a cracking campaign with a bit of historical licence - I don't think there's much need to Mod for this one but you have to live with the fact that you can't pick Italians after September 1943 so if you want them as co-belligerents then you have to use a scenario date selection that does not reflect the actual date. Here are some interweb research links that I delved into while thinking about doing this as a campaign: https://www.feldgrau.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2714 http://www.ww2wrecks.com/portfolio/the-battles-for-kos-and-leros-1943-the-new-edition-of-churchills-folly/ https://www.rapid-fire-uk.com/free-downloads/ http://www.kingsownmuseum.com/ww2-1ko-leros-01.htm https://www.leros.gr/it/informazioni-turistiche/the-detailed-history-of-leros-island.html https://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=75&t=170900 http://battleofleros.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-battle-of-leros-and-italian-coastal.html http://www.fireandfury.com/scenarios/scenleroslanding.pdf http://www.leros.org/battle_leros_eng/the_battle_of_leros.html http://fliphtml5.com/yaln/mzci https://lerosisland.gr/en/listing-category/historical-tourism-en/italians-builds-en/ http://www.wlb-stuttgart.de/seekrieg/43-11.htm https://www.dodecaneso.org/content/la-rete-dallarme-antiaereo-dellisola-di-leros/ http://www.leros.org/lerostouristhttp/roadleros.pdf http://www.iprom.co.uk/archives/caithness/Dodecanese.html http://nzetc.victoria.ac.nz/tm/scholarly/tei-WH2-1Epi-c4-WH2-1Epi-l-3.html http://testofbattle.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=429&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0&sid=7fe1e84a20d6f7429c5c5ed5dc75a6b0 https://www.historisches-marinearchiv.de/projekte/landungsfahrzeuge/beschreibung.php https://www.feldgrau.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12828 https://www.asisbiz.com/Luftwaffe-Units.html https://www.axishistory.com/books/366-germany-kriegsmarine/kriegsmarine-sicherungsstreitkraefte/6759-21-unterseebootsjagdflottille http://www.rerumromanarum.com/2017/12/portolago.html https://www.facebook.com/battleofleros/ http://www.academia.edu/13231745/THE_EVENTS_ON_KOS_IN_OCTOBER_1943 http://www.academia.edu/9129648/German_Special_Forces_of_World_War_II https://durhamlightinfantry1920-46.weebly.com/kos-1943.html
  13. Another one of mine I reckon - Green 9 per chance?
  14. At least they were wearing helmets though … 😉
