Re: Which one and why

I seem to have unfairly tarred Fuller (weirdo though he undoubtedly was) with the same brush as Liddell Hart. Mea culpa! Interesting comment by Urban that the 1920s was the only time that the British were the world leaders in military thought. I suppose in fairness, it followed on from the only time...

Re: Which one and why

Painting up WW2 French or Italians is much like Naps Spanish. A necessary, but ultimately pointless exercise Dutch are quite good when defending an airfield, or similar target of an FJ mission. And they have some really wonderful Heath Robinson vehicles. Belgians....er.....not so much. That's not a...

Re: Which one and why

Actually, there were no tanks - they arrived after the cavalry had charged an infantry unit and been shot up at Krojanty on day one of the attack on Poland.

Re: Which one and why

Another vote for the BK flamers - early war is, as others have said, fascinating. Not just because it's the only time in WW2 when the Allies had the best tanks, but also because almost everyone's philosophy on how to use armour was (a) different from everybody else's, and (b) looked like it had been...

Re: What are people buying?

All existing periods, as I already have SP2 Napoleonic/AWI, and SAGA2 forces - just providing them with more scenery and opponents.
