England and Wales voted to drag us out of the EU so that we could be a sovereign nation ... this is what sovereignty looks like. We are a foreign nation and are being treated as such. I can't believe anyone is surprised.

However, this is a wargames forum not a political one and I suggest this has run far enough and propose the thread be locked.

Isn't there one lass in the States who charges a fair bit more than that ?
Mind you, the ones that I've seen aren't really 'toy soldiers'..more like pieces of fine art.

Quote from: John Cook on 10 June 2024, 11:45:59 AMThese are not tourists, they are troops of another NATO country.  There used to be something called the Status of Forces Agreement as I remember, and in 25 years in the army prior to 1993 I was involved in exercises in Canada, Kenya and Oman and not once do I remember being asked to queue to show my passport and have my photo taken at some temporary border post.  The Soviets used to do it when you transited the Berlin corridor though. This, it seems to me, was the French being French and has all the appearance of an intended slight.

They never asked for passports in 1944-'45.

Cold War Commander / Re: Question about a Blunder
Last post by Big Insect - 10 June 2024, 01:44:53 PM
QuoteI find the idea that a Blunder is defined as a successful order is really odd. Surely it's a failed order. And if you want to excluded a unit being given an order by the CO after a blunder, then just have this as an exception to the CO re-order rule.

After a unit has blundered you can't give it another order (that turn).

Not quite sure what is meant by bonus here. If you mean rolling a double 1 so getting a second bonus order, then yes you can order the unit again.


It is a rules 'mechanism' folks.

I am sure I could come up with some sort of complex wording that covers when an order (successful or otherwise) is received and acted upon (whether correctly or incorrectly) but TBF I really don't think it is worth the effort.
This rule has been in place since the very first launch of BKC way (way, way) back at the dawn of 'Commander' time.
As far as the unit is concerned, it has received an order and acted upon it. The fact that it may have misunderstood that order ("send two & fourpence, we are going to a dance") resulting in catastrophic consequences, is irrelevant.

A score of 12 means that a unit has Blundered, which also means it cannot be re-ordered that game-turn by a more senior officer, under any circumstance.
That's it ... no arguments (please)  I thank you :D

Mine are line units in neat formations, skirmishers on scatter bases.
Like so

Further question.

Rules were written with larger scales in mind, I believe. They state each figure represents 1-5 men. I'm thinking in 10mm I could actually put 3 men on a base (because 30 in a bag - I can get 10 bases for one bag). For the game it is the BASE not number of figures.

How do you see the game - regimented lines, or skirmish a bit all over the place (a la a certain rifleman)?

Down side is 3x cost, 3x the painting.
