Awesome! Unfortunately, both Red House and Lingevres need to be edited (grammar, omissions, etc.) as there is some ambiguity and confusion in their current state. Is there supposed to be panther platoon in Lingevres?

sorry about the errors, sometimes the dyslexia takes over. there are two panther platoons in Lingevres with one tank each in the german list.

i will go back through them when i get a chance and have my wife edit them ;)

lastly i wanted to point out that I had made a mistake on the narew river crossing, in follow up research i found that the 499th was not part of the 352nd at the time of the crossing because, well... the 352nd wasnt formed until 1943. whoops

Thats ok! They look like a lot of fun :D

i hope they are, i find my self always being short one or two things to be able to play so i have been painting like mad to prep for them

Having all the right units is definitely the hard part! That said, the coolness value of the scenarios makes up for all the work assembling the correct lists. It really is a great alternative to standard "tournament style" play :)

i just picked up german cavalry from peter pig to play the narew scenario and just looking at the figures is awesome, i am also having a lot of fun putting together scenarios from primary sources and battle reports. its pretty cool researching the history and coming up with a game based on those actions not points
