    A concise report but otherwise pretty good. The ANZACs look pretty modern! M. Nisbet knows his stuff about the ANZACs, he has the info on that for you to field in the game 😉

  • recce103c says:

    Nice terrain set up, with something for every vehicle type .

    Again good factual AAR and maybe you could ‘link’ the pictures by giving them just a turn number”

    @ finally, looks like you ‘optimised ‘a bit to much – AA is a necessity here in Europe

    recommended for the effort and the down under support!!!

  • recce103c says:

    @ M. Nisbet: I’d be interested in your ANZAC/Australian PDF 🙂 and we’re not asking Commonwealth to turn coats are we?? 😉

  • Victor says:

    Looks like the Krokodile took this one, any reason for your lack of AA?

  • M. Nisbet says:

    Joker, did you get my message about the pdf? You seem to be a little confused on your list. The 6pt British Mechanized platoons are the territorial army choices, not the ANZAC brigade. Use the basic mechanized list from Iron Maiden to field your force. Or better, make a profile for the British faction and come talk to us.
