  1. Thanks for all your responses chaps ( especially Harry and Dandelions fulsome comments )from what folks are saying it would seem that the pictures I've seen were almost certainly SS or some kind of security troops. Another thing to ask the guys at Battlefront to include in the next edition of CM..... I've always been kind of interested in the use of captured weapons etc. It's only when you start delving into it that you realise just how much stuff was actually used - like I said it'd be nice to see that reflected in future editions of the game somehow. Couple of interesting looking b
  2. Had a great time as usual, but due to a logistical cockup ( left camera on table at home - doh ! )took no piccies. In addition spent far to much money on books ( also as usual ) mostly in the Barbarossa books tent but in a variety of other places as well. Managed to cater to my nerdish tendencies by finding a back issue of Tankograd gazette with an article about armoured trains in it
  3. Admiral, Sorry to hear about the site ( though no need for you to apologise ) I've had many hours fine gaming courtesy of the SD, and your hard work is much appreciated. Lets hope you rise phoenix like from the ashes. ps Best of luck with the new job !
  4. Not sure if this should be on the CMBO forum ( mods feel free to move )I was reading a couple of accounts of the Dragoon landings and the general impression I got was that German troops in that theatre were second line troops ie: lots of foreign troops ( Ukrainians etc ) with in some cases a rather ragbag assortment of equipment. For example the Czech ZB lmg's seem to have been fairly common, I've seen pictures of what appear to be old Austrian Schwarlose mmg's and even what looks like a Madsen lmg. Artillery also seems to have been hodge podge. Basically can someone point me in the dire
  5. I appreciate this really belongs on the CMBO forum but things are very slooooooow over there. I have run a search with nada results. So..can anybody recommend any decent books or sources about the use of captured weapons by the German forces in France and the low countries. I've got the 3 or 4 little volumes by Schiffer about captured equipment but they tend to speak in the most general of terms, and I was wondering if people had any more suggestions either online or book form. I mention this mostly out of curiousity....the Germans had a lot of improvised SPG's in Normandy that never got in
  6. Stop being lazy or cheap Ian Hogg's German artillery of world war two has several pictures
  7. I see references to it everywhere. Can someone tell me what it actually is ?
  8. As someone else observed the black population of Great Britain was much lower then than now, but I'm not sure how many folks from the West Indies volunteered for service and what capacities they served in. EDIT: stopped being a lazy bugger and did a bit of searching and found this.... http://www.mgtrust.org/index.htm Which is all about the contribution made by the West Indies,Africa and India to Britains war effort in WWII. Suffice it to say they made a major contribution ranging from combat roles through to logistics.
  9. Also useful against bunkers if you can get close enough.
  10. ...during the battle of Normandy and beyond ? Any suggestions folks ? [ October 06, 2004, 09:24 AM: Message edited by: Agentorange ]
  11. Two things really: 1] Each vehicle or artillery piece actually has it's own model. That is no more sharing of models by vehicles that actually looked radically different to each other. British armoured cars in CMAK being my personal hate here. 2] a wider variety of building models ie terraces for towns, variety of farmhouses in different shapes, barns etc, wider variety of bridges etc, greater variety of bunkers with different weapons etc. Oh yes and tall walls and fences ( perhaps with some way to add a 'loopholes' function ? )
  12. Cheers guys, I did choose clear as my weather option ( should have mentioned that ) I think as Kingfish said nipping over to the tech forum is going to be my best bet, so I shall do so forthwith.
  13. can't seem to find what I'm after. Here's the thing, after playing for ages I've decided to have a go at some scenarios. Got my map underway: July 1944, daytime but..... all I get for the sky is a rather gloomy green colour, is this right ? I'm after blazing sunshine ! Is it meant to do this ( ie default ) or have I made a cods up somewhere ? Any suggestions gratefully received.
