  1. Thanks everyone, i am aware of Hard Cat rules, i probably should of mentioned as i use them and Frankos rules for Infantry. For me though there is still this gap when it comes to Armour/Infantry Cooperation. I also use the rule that armour can only target enemies it has contact with, or enemies that a friendly unit has 'pointed out' (same action square, tracer, etc) i am more looking for some rules on cooperation, and how messages would be passed realistically. I'll continue to work on my ruleset. Thanks for replying regards slippy
  2. Hi all Something i have been unhappy with for some time is the interaction between Tanks and Infantry, especially in the WW2 titles. With the 'gods eye' view of the player its possible to have a single tank track halfway across the battlefield to help an infantry section, which seems highly unrealistic. I have done a little digging around, and there are some quite good resources available (mainly from the British and American point of view). A good one here covers the Canadians at Operation Charnwood, the British would be following the same procedures. https://scholars.wl
  3. Thanks Repsol for clearing things up for me, no mate would not try and use a Corps in one scenario, i think my computer would blow up! 😉 regards slippy
  4. I realise you can use a master map to cut up for scenarios, but can you do the reverse? Can you take two maps and 'stitch' them together to make one larger map? Also is there any limit to the amount of units you can hold in the 'core units file' for a campaign? Could you in theory have a Corps for each side? Thanks for any replies slippy
  5. Great Information Ithikial_AU would be interested in any other paperwork you have on the Normandy Campaign please mate regards slippy
  6. wondering if there is a master map for this campaign available please? Failing that are there any other master maps covering this area? cheers all slippy
  7. Ok cheers gents for your replies, i will take a look at Colossal Cracks, and who knows maybe one day even venture into the mission builder regards slippy
  8. Hi all Are there any scenarios, or even better, campaigns, covering Operation Goodwood please? If not does anyone know of any master maps of the area? Cheers slippy
  9. Yes, thanks Lucky_Strike, i do have a few Stackpole books, so know what you mean about the quality sometimes. cheers mate
  10. Thanks Lucky Strike and Andrew, i was looking on Amazon, didn't notice that review sorry. Confusing with three different names for the same thing. I have the Battleground Europe, pen and sword edition so i guess i will give it a miss. Find it surprising though that this is the same, as the pen and sword book is more of a battlefield guide, wouldn't have thought there was enough content for a stackpole book. Thanks for the info though, saved me paying for something i already have regards slippy
  11. Andrew Thanks for the reply, but the first book you have highlighted above is part of the 'Battleground Europe Series' and is this book I know these are different. I am specifically talking about the two books in my first post. cheers slippy
  12. Hi all Does anyone know if this book is a reprint, or the same as this one please? I have the 'Over The Battlefield' book but was wondering if it is worth getting the Stackpole version. If not the same book are they sufficiently different to warrant purchasing? Cheers all slippy
  13. Thanks for your replies everyone, i will take a look at your suggestions. yes i have some effects mods loaded, but none seem to address the Tank fires im on about. regards slippy
  14. Thanks Sgt Joch and Swant, from the readme at FGM it mentions this so are all these changes just to address the suppression model? Or just tweaks/additions etc? Thanks all
