Re: Forum Heroes - The Red Knob

Guess im not long enough here to get the story Fridgeman finished looking at Feldgrau and turned his PC off and decided to go for a walk across the fields towards the old aircraft hanger and parked outside was a red Stuka with some strange attachments. Fridgemans first thought was "What the hell am...

Welcome back then!
Thanks, it is because I am working on my webpage, that I am delayed in writing the next part of this Forum Heroes story.

Cheers, Bill.

Re: Anyone still play Avalon Hill games?

The Panzerblitz add-ons were mostly in magazines and you had to cut the counters out and mount them on card yourself. Lots of added 1941 items like Pz I and 37mm AT guns etc. Late war helicopters and the Maus tank, are just a few. A lot of the "add-Ons" are available on the internet to print out and...

Re: Anyone still play Avalon Hill games?

The cats have the whole house and a large garden, but they prefer the "village" on my model railroad! :down: Yes there is nothing worse than stopping for a meal and planing your next moves in your head whilst eating, only to find a huge cat sitting on the map, spread out washing his balls!

Re: Anyone still play Avalon Hill games?

Hi Tom, I like Squad Leader, but I felt that it runs quicker and flows better without the AFVs added in "Cross of Iron". In the Stalingrad type battles you really feel it when you loose your HMGs. Although it is a great feeling when your engineers go in for an assault with flame throwers and the ene...

Anyone still play Avalon Hill games?

I find board games far more entertaining than PC games, which I cant really get into. This may be because I remember the time before we had computers. I gave a lot away during the last 40 or so years, but I kept my favorites.... Third Reich ( 3rd edition and Advanced edition) Guns of August (WW1) Pa...

Re: eisenbahninspektor ?????

The Reichsbahn (German State Railways) is my specialist field....although my answer is a bit late :wink:

Reichsbahninspektor is an official in pay group 7 and is about the same as an Oberleutnant.

Forum Heroes - The Red Knob

It was dark outside as the door opened very slowly, a figure as pale as a ghost walked into the even darker room. As the figure got closer David could see that it was Bill, returned from the dead after all these years! Bill tripped over a Forum Hero story that had been left on the floor by Tom. Davi...

A copy was sent to surrounded troops fighting on the French Atlantic coast, it was sent in by U-Boat, to build up the defenders morale. By U-Boot I do not know for sure, but the garrison of La Rochelle received a copy by plane (owing to KG 40) as they still had the Laleu airstrip nearby. It was jus...

@ Karltrowitz,

I have a copy of "Filmkurier" which shows Kampfgeschwader Lützow.
(I have the film on DVD, but can´t find it at the moment, I may have lent
it to someone).
