    CMBN British Campaign: For King and Country

    But, I've just taken a kicking on "The Ridge" so the campaign terminated early as a "Draw". Ho hum. I'll take another crack at it sometime in the future.

    Newbie DAR/AAR: ncc1701e vs JoMc67D

    Rab C. sits slumped at the bar of The Clansman with about an inch of lager left in his glass. Then all of a sudden he sits bolt upright. "Eey Jamesie, will youse liisshen to this pish. Hes doesnae knowse the difference between "Scot" and "Scott". "Aye, yer right there, Rab. Who would yer have in an army full of Scotts?" ........ So let's answer his question. Sir Walter Scott, who would go into battle dressed as Ivanhoe on a white charger, and promptly get shot . Terry Scott, who would refuse to go into battle unless Joon Whitfield was holding his hand. Cpt. Robert Falcon Scott, a man so stupid that he tried to reach the South Pole using pit ponies instead of huskies. And, Sir Peter Scott who whenever given the binoculars to study the Jerries positions, would shout "Father, father, there's a falcon!" Only to be told, "That's me, you Stupid Boy".

    CMBN British Campaign: For King and Country

    A year and a half later, and I've finally upgraded to v.4. And this campaign is my first port of call. "Gold Beach" was a great mission, bunkers to bust, walls and buildings to knock down aplenty. I loved it. Although the Germans did throw in the towel before I could destroy the church.
  4. I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes.
  5. Are "coffee cops" policemen who beat up anyone they see drinking tea?

    CM:BN Screenshot Thread #2

    The look on his face as something very hot passes between his legs.
  7. I get the same problem in CMBN on v.4. But it doesn't occur with Final Blitzkrieg.
  8. And also, if we get "Early War" CM, maps like your will be perfect for May '40.
  9. Yes, my mistake. I was thinking of where the bulk of the fighting took place in '44. I'd forgotten this....

    A Thought Offered for Discussion

    If I had wet dreams like his, I'd be seeing my GP pretty damn sharpish. In the meantime I hope that BFC don't waste their time on this flight of fancy. They've got enough on their plate as it is.
  11. It is a decent piece of map making. But I think that your "Black Mountain" looks more like a slagheap from the Borinage, than a natural feature in the Ardennes.
  12. Of course, if you happened to be Prime Minister of Prussia, Speaker of the Reichstag, head of the Luftwaffe, etc etc then you were exempted from wearing a pink triangle. Although it was optional when you were playing dress up with yer mates... allegedly.
  13. It was used for all people whom the Nazis considered to be sex offenders, including heterosexual male rapists.
  14. When it comes to rambling, you really can't beat "Oh, didn't he ramble" by Jelly Roll Morton and Sidney Bechet from 1939.
  15. Zig Zag roads do look ugly. Although not as bad as the wart on my chin.
  16. Getting a headache with that Spike stuck through it.

    Improvement suggestions

    No, the End or Destination Point is linear. Three AS for a full squad. Two AS for a squad that has detached a Scout or AT Team. And there are NO intervening way points.
  18. I can't help but find the thought of this auction being help on November 11th somewhat distasteful. Hopefully there will be a minutes silence sometime during the proceedings.

    Improvement suggestions

    Try giving them a linear end point with the AS's.in a row along the wall, fence etc, that is on the same side as their start point. It seems to work for me even in v.4.

    Great shoots for us to feat our eyes on.
  21. You might want to give "Gog and Magog" or "Carius at Malinova" a try if you want to play with some Heavies. You could even makes us some videos to enjoy.

    Liberation of Milan, April 25, 1945

    I think you are right. Perhaps the girl in the white stole that one as well.

    Mortars with squad or not

    Paddy looks up from his pint of black, and turns to Monty. "For the love of Mary, Joseph, and the Baby Jeezus. Will yerz go down there Field Marshall, and tell that fecker to stop keep calling me a "Brit" ".
  24. You can't beat playing a demo, and watching the Armchair General vids to give you a feel for how much has changed.
