Is the campaign system easily transferable? I'm thinking of different WW2 settings, or other rule sets, or even other historical periods? Any insight would be must appreciated. TIA.
I think it should be. It's designed for platoon level skirmish. Each campaign will give you.....
Thank you TP, that is a huge help. Thanks for such a detailed reply and for the links, I will be checking them out.

The British now move further down the road to Bremen, but what awaits them? Fierce resistance or meek surrender? Perhaps the thunderous blast of a Kriegsmarine supermine? Or then again, some German farmers quietly going about their business? Lots of suspense for both players as the campaign continues to unfold.

Great pics, thanx for posting.... 8-)

I couldn’t help but notice the “refreshments” in the background of the 3rd pic.... :D
Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes in the wind, and sometimes against it, but sail we must, and not drift nor lie at anchor.

LOL, well spotted, not sure if you ever watched Blackadder, but I’ve always joked that it’s General Haig’s drinks cabinet still slowly edging its way to Berlin.......

The British now must make a second attempt to dislodge the Fallschirmjager, but this time they can draw on more support from the main column. Would it be enough to force the Germans from the table? With the clock ticking the British need to press hard to keep the campaign on schedule. The full AAR is here https://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com ... d-two.html

The appearance of any of your AARs always causes an immediate stop in whatever I'm doing and then I'll just sit riveted for the next twenty minutes going over the blow-by-blow replay and in-depth tactical commentary. Absolutely fabulous stuff!

We managed to just find time to squeeze in one more game before work takes me away for a couple of weeks. The British have swanned across two maps and are now able to manage a schedule that makes victory a tantalising possibility. First they need to clear Map 7 and then, if necessary take the final map in a single turn. So what or who was waiting for them at Map 7?

Love these campaigns, and your reports.
Given me all sorts of ideas for something similar too.
