Airborne Assault - an appeal to reason

Airborne Assault - an appeal to reason

Postby Keef » 08 Aug 2017

Hi Piers and Warwick,

As a bona fide purchaser of the Tobruk supplement, could I appeal to you to make the airborne assault rules available to all interested Battlegroup players? Maybe a free download or whatever suits? These rules don't only apply to Crete - they could be used in Normandy, Holland 1940, etc, etc...

I won't gain from this as I already have the supplement, and I doubt putting these rules out will lose you many sales.

Thanks for listening.

Keith.

We may well do a slightly less destructive version... and put them in a Dispatches.

Those in the Tobruk are very much themed for the debacle on Crete.

Ah, Dispatches. Editions 1 and 2 seem to have disappeared off the internet.

I'm not sure the rules as presented are overly destructive for other theatres. Genuinely opposed airborne landings were always costly. But I've yet to play the rules, so I'd better reserve judgement..

They're in the files section of the Battlegroup Facebook page pending the new Ironfist website becoming available.

Not much use to me as I don't do Facebook, but then I'm in a minority to be sure.
