Please see link for the second battle of the Too Fat Lardies' Gembloux Gap 1940 campaign, as the German 3 Schutzen Regt tries again to take the forward positions of the 110 Infantry Regt, using the 'Farquhar Variant' of the WRG Modern Rules adapted for WW2 and 6mm figures.

Again, what is the "The Farquhar Variant" and where can I find it?

I am so sorry, did you ask before and I missed it? My apologies.

So…WRG released two WW2 battlegroup-level rules: Armour & Infantry 1925-50 (1973) with a second edition (1988); but it released three modern sets: 1950-1975 (1974), 1950-1985 (1979) and 1950-2000 (1993). The 'Farquhar' variant is the 'missing link' in WW2 rules, i.e. the 1979 Modern set reverse-engineered into an equivalent WW2 set. I know same gamers used something like this in the early 80s, with the target acquisition and 'actions' of the 1979 modern set bolted-on to the first edition of the 1925-50 set, although this variant has more to it than that. The rules aren't published yet, although one could ask for a playtest version…more details here: link
