oops, will fix. What do you think of the campaign, worth playing? What is missing that you would like to see?

I thought up an allied bonus, any battles that is within 4 hexes of the coast the Allied player gets free offshore bombardments, AT 5 FP 2+, and a single observer.

I expect the Axis to lose in the campaign.

Yeah, I've read about Biazza Ridge. The one where the Paratrooper held out against the german armour and prevented them (Herman Goering Div?) from reaching the beach.

The Fearless part is not it question. I guess the yard stick would be the Rangers, who will never get "Fearless Vet" status because of casualties.
I don't think there as any way (and probably will never be anyway) to take Veteran Rangers.

I mean, even the Big Red One are CT in midwar. You have to go to Italy before you can get Italy veterans.

If BF says they're FV's then, I guess they're FV's.

I bet a guy could do the math, and make a Fearless Trained Paratrooper force. (Same equation for making Luftwaffe FeldDivision)

I have an American Mech Inf and Armor Battalion that I could contribute to the game. If the game is played past September, I will be able to commit an Airborne Company with some limited attachments (i.e. mortars & such)

We havn't decided all of that yet.

I can play as Italian or German or both if needed.

Evan has Germans and Soviets.
Richard has Germans.
Ben has Italian Para
Bill has US.
David has US Rangers or Airborne and other stuff maybe even Brits.
Terry has everything but hasn't been able to play in awhile.
Sean Curl has Germans.
Taber has Americans and Germans including Airborne for both.
Corbin has US.

There are quite a few others that just don't play that often that have other forces.

Taber,

but are they painted? I knew you of all people would buy the Brit Airborne. Since they also have a MW writeup they are worth it.

They have a mid war write up? I didnt include them in the campaign because I thought there was not a midwar version of them available?

Sean,

Somewhere there is an official pdf MW list. I will look for it. I think I have it on the hard drive somewhere.
