TWW(GDW) and Fleet Series Mashup

Argghhhhh, I just crashed the comment generator and lost all the text. I will start again. I will write it in Word and paste here.

Further to what I already posted, I don’t believe there is anything much needed for additional rules, the only interaction between the two systems are the political rules and rules about naval movement of supply and land units.

I’ll look up some info on the ships mentioned in the Fleet games.   I don’t know yet if many of the Soviet ships in the…

End of 2019, Start of 2020

I have some Line of Departure news. As you might have noticed, I published an issue in the spring, and have been working on the next one ever since. Issue 83 is a work in active progress, and currently I'm working on a second review for it, this one on Jack W Greene's Togo. The one on The Day of Waterloo, from Against the Odds, is already done and ready to insert.

2018 was a terrible year for a lot of reasons, including and especially getting anything done on Line of Departure.…

COIN system

Just discovered the joys of the COIN system games from GMT stable.

Ran shy of these as did not seem to be 'proper' wargames and the fact that they were generally 4 player but after acquiring Fire In The Lake, and being pleasantly surprised that they generate a good 2 player experience, I am now a firm believer (cue Monkees song) having not been this enthused by a game system/series since Combat Commander ! 

What a heady mix  of combat, politics, resource management, events,…

Bagration June 27

I got through the June 27 Operations Phase and 11th Guards Army's 2nd Guards Tank Corps, and 5th Guards Tank Army was exploiting beyond the Drut River and historically ran head long into the arriving 5th Panzer Division with the 505th Heavy Panzer Battalion between Berezino and Krupki.

News, and It's Not Good

I have some news for Line of Departure subscribers especially. Unfortunately it's not good. Today I got a bad diagnosis at a doctor's office, and my driving will be curtailed for the foreseeable future. No, it's not a DUI, nor is it connected with substance abuse. It's my heart, and it's been malfunctioning in a frightening manner. I have to get on the schedule with my invasive cardiologist, yes that's a…

End of June 22nd, 1944

And at the end of June 22nd, only 2nd and 3rd Belorussian Front attacked (1st Belo presence felt on the 23rd). Here is the first and only breakthrough made in the 49th Army area of operations. The Germans made local counter attacks and a successful barrage (78th Sturm Division's Nebelwerfer unit)…

Bagration Project

Recently I have been able to replicate the 1st Belorussian Front's encirclement of Bobruisk.  Photo has 3rd Army's 9th Tank Corps breaking out into the open.  System is derived from the old GMT title Lost Victory.
