Two "must reads" from you now rather than just the one - keeping me busy in my retirement? Smiley

Definitely a must read for me as well. I'm focusing on Sinai & Palestine using ITLSU Smiley Thanks the help you have already given Michael

Michael, from my read of ITLSU I think the smallest unit is the company, made up of 3-4 bases each of 2 figures. In post 4 you say "The smallest unit was the platoon, comprising eight figures but more usually six."  Confused Confused

Thanks, Paul. There's a bit of text missing. I'll put it right. The platoon being the smallest unit is a reference to a base of two figs representing 40 (48) men being the smallest base unit. As you say, a Company of four bases is the smallest tactical unit.

New posts not showing up when I go to the blog  Sad

Can sort of get there via Blog Index but the numbering seems to be out post 4 is about rules, not "Why 10mm?"   Confused

A thought that occured while reading your post on basing; if your trenches are wide enough for infantry on 15mm deep bases fitting MGs on 25mm disc bases will be a bit tricky  Undecided

The commanders on 20mm disc will have similar but less pressing problems  Smiley

A very useful blog at just the right time for me

Thanks, Paul! On the page this is the same link but it might act better:

I'm not so worried about MGs and HQs. HQs can just be placed as tokens, MGs should have specific emplacements (or sit atop). Have you seen this photo? The difference between the MG position and the infantry trench would be nice to replicate.

Very interesting, Michael. I've always been interested in "Messpot" and the campaigns to Demascus and beyond.
