I think I get it now Ian, I read my team Yankee rulebook and it doesn’t make any difference, just the chance that half of your force may run away if it fails it’s formation check.

I have a didgital copy of Charlie don’t surf and have been tempted to try it out, I’ll give Nam a run first see how it plays. The previous version was hardcore with infantry battles, heavy slogging stuff.

I may get more Hueys but may not need them, have 5 the now and 2 of each,loach,cobras and hogs (hogs didn’t make the new rulebook, shame as I prefer the look of them than cobras, still getting used though)

When I have the last unit painted I will arrange a game.

I`m up for both`Nam` and `Charlie Don`t Surf`, just name the day, I`ll be there with my beer and my surfboard.

If you fancy some `Team Yankee` then give us a shout, got both sides in 6mm, as God himself intended TY to be played. :twisted:

Cheers, Ian

Oh aye, I’ll try out Team Yankee in god scale.
It’s not a genre I have ever taken much notice in, Vietnam being the closest I’ve gamed to modern. But I did enjoy the Arab Israeli games we played.

I have to be honest I think Nam plays well in 15mm, the lack of tanks and dense terrain makes weapon range more acceptable.

I am planning to get through to the club in March so stay tuned.

Here's another one - if you're interested in Nam this is a pretty decent blog. It's platoon level based on Chain of Command but there's a pile of usable collateral for other stuff in there as well. He also does stuff for Mogadishu.

Interesting, will give this a more detailed look.

Ha, the Arab Israeli game was a hoot. I destroyed loadsa tanks and still lost- story of my FoW career, dangnabbit! :D

I`ll be at both March meetings so if I know your coming I`ll bring a list of what`s available for TY USA, USSR, and UK (almost everything infact), and we can arrange a game at the club or elsewhere wherever.

I don`t know if you`ve tried `I Ain`t Been Shot Mum`in 15mm or any other scale, but Steve has taken me through it and it has a lot of plus points. `Charlie Don`t Surf` being the Nam version.

But I`m certainly up for both `Nam` and `Team Yankee`. ;)

I think it may be more than team Yankee in God scale now, my favourite 6mm manufacturer has done this

Oh dear, wallet burst again.

I have some Panzers that could have a nice wee how-do-you-do with your Shermans.
And Team Yankee in the ONE TRUE SCALE of 6mm.
And I`ve bit the bullet and bought the `Nam rules, so when you finish both armies, I`m up for it.

But when are we both going to find the time, he who is called Russ?
May is a total bust for me, weekends-wise.
Too many games, not enough time AAAAAAARGH! :o

:lol:
May is a no go for me too, booked up to my eyeballs.

Nam guys almost finished, just a few stands left, maybe something in June or July.

Working away on some scatter terrain to give it more of a Nam feel, lots of little bases of dense foliage.

I wont start on ww2 god scale until after Claymore, then I will be skint.

What are these games that you speak of? They seem but a distant memory to me know :D

Keep planning a return and then fate rolls double one again :lol:
