First class range, now what rules...

As discussed when the range was a gleam in Leon's eye,  the rules that need less tweak are BKC .  Smiley

90% of the kit is WW2, and it fits the post war era as opposed to modern.  For me the dividing line is guided weapons.

Leon has already sussed a downloadable Korean supplement.  Thumbs up

A major tweak  may be  revision of the Sherman M4A3E8 over the much vaunted  T34/85, especially with well trained US crews.  It came out best in the tank v tank encounters.

Hi Alan (from Antrim ?)- the light order and WW2 small arms  of the South Koreans would fit early war ARVN- to a point.

These figures are to Phil's neat style and not as "bulky" as the Vietnam range, so with a lighter build, could well serve as a proxy for Vietnamese.

Looking forward to seeing the next batch of releases for this range Smiley

Me too! I'm looking at some scenario ideas, even Chinese Civil War.  For me, Korean War scenario(s) have to involve some sort of tanks.  Researching Canadians or British vs Chinese.

Are you saying you have to have tanks to be interested?  If so, here's some incentive.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDDU0ZDYic8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDDU0ZDYic8</a>

I would say that dependent upon the phase of the war tanks have a varied impact.

If you look at Pork Chop Hill for example, that was an almost entirely infantry battle. I think tank vs tank was not a great feature of Korea. Probably used more as mobile artillery / infantry support.

Whatever your taste, I think the Koran War can supply.


Sorry found this ... couldn't resist.

The early war was the era for tank v tank

From memory (its about 2 years since I researched it) the north entered the war with about 600 T34/85s.

There were approx. 119 tank v tank engagements.  The deployment was often in  penny packets - only 24 engagements involving more than three T34s !
Which makes for the table top  well suited to real life. 

The bad news for Stuart (fsn) was that the 8th (Royal Irish Hush Puppies ) only had 18 Cents. in total.  At wits' end

I rather suspect that you are referring to the Churchills which were the first tanks we sent. 1 Squadron would be roughly 18.

No Ian. I am referring to the 8th Royal Irish Hussars who arrived at Pusan on 14 Nov 1950.  With their shiny new Mk3s.

And yes, I stand corrected in that  three squadrons of the 8th were deployed, so that's what ? 18 x 3 = 54 Centurions in total ?  Smiley  

I was reading the war diary for the Compo valley and had  assumed one squadron was the deployment

Now the reccie platoon - they were equipped with Cromwells- and at least one got captured, and used against former owners !

IIRC the first battle the Centurions fought was against a captured Cromwell.

Centurion won.

Just got my first lot for the Korean War - some Summer Chinese (which does sound like a variety of petunia) - and they are absolutely, and I don't just say this, absolutely spiffing.

Well done Techno.

Thank you Leon & crew.
