Please see link for a refight of the first scenario in the Too Fat Lardies' Taking the Gembloux Gap pint-sized campaign set in 1940, using the "Farquhar Variant" rules and 6mm figures from a variety of manufacturers as the advancing Germans try to break through French positions in Belgium.

Beautiful table. You are really drawing me into 6mm.
Am not familiar with the threat generation system. Have you considered TFLs Platoon Forward to generate the opfor? Truth in lending I wrote it so I think it is pretty good.


Ps agree the french lmg should be treated as a bar.

Thanks Joe. I think I have a copy of Platoon Forward somewhere, will have a look at it

Great looking game and nice AAR.

See if it helps. If you use the patrol phase for CoC I wrote up an article in a lardy special on how to use PF with that phase.
Any questions let me know. It might not help you but it might be the ticket.
Again great table.
