Posted this on FB, but I'll repeat here:

The Archer (the Brit 17pdr on a valentine chassis).

For Luke, you didn't get this from me: http://www.scribd.com/doc/48156121/WWII-744th-Light-Tank-Battalion

(skip ahead to the 25 December entry)

Great episode guys, I completely agree about the Pacific being a letdown, but I don't think it was a letdown just because of Band of Brothers being awesome. The Pacific felt completely disjointed, the timeline was way to large in scope - and despite only having less than a dozen episodes they still managed to cram some pretty dull "home front'ish" episodes that were all about R&R and no combat.

It did have 1-2 really good episodes, and a couple of great moments in the rest of the episodes but it just felt unfocused, dull, I didn't even know the name of any character except for the 2-3 "main guys". The cast and characters were pretty forgettable and uncharismatic.

As for Pacific gaming, we've talked about it in my game group as well when playing 28mm Weird-WW2. It would be cool, but it would also require a LOT of completely new terrain. Lots of jungle, huts and stuff you can't mix with any other theater of war. My friend Calle went ahead and bought some 28mm Japanese and will use them for Secrets of the Third Reich but we will just play them with some mockup history twist so that they take part in Europe or whatever.

Question... Can HQ assets like HMGs be used in ambush?

indierockclimber said...

Negative. They deploy at the same time as independent teams, and thus cant be in reserve or ambush!

Of course they can ambush if they are attached to a platoon that is placed in ambush, but I know that wasn't your question!

Basecoat101 said...

Thank you Sir. You are the Man.

Stormtrooper said...

totally agree about Pacific

Basecoat101 said...

Agreed Pacific was a weak series. I lost interest and did not finish the watching the last few.

Dirty Jon said...

@Base: I did the same thing -- I was pretty excited about it, but didn't even finish watching it.

Anatoli said...

It did have some nice combat footage, though the best scene, imo, was this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0o1MQN-SJU

Too bad the series lacked a focused story to tie the characters and the battle together more coherently.
