  • Looks good Testguy,

    I’ll give it a try.  Right now I’ve just completed a map for Maleme Airfield in Crete which was a German Airborne Operation.  I’ll be testing it over the next month and will post afterwards.  The map uses 3" hexes and is overall 3 ft by 5 ft in size.  My game plan is 500 points on each side.


  • Hey have you tried my other scenarios?

  • I’m gonna give this one a shot.  I am short a couple pieces on each side but I have 4 cases enroute this week and next so I should be able to put it together by then.  I’ll post the AAR once I’m finished.  ~Youngstown

  • youngstown have you tried it yet?
