ok, im thinking Double Deuce for the bazooka, and SDR for an M1 - the two best shooting guys not in command 

Thompsons for me and BC

M1s for everyone else

Stagger or Mirth for the BAR

Crap.  I didn't realize I was the best shot apart from the NCOs.  I can take the BAR if needed.

Are you going to be doing this on a VASSAL module or just take pictures of the actual game or ?

Yeah, there's a VASSAL module. I'll use it because it's easier than taking pics of the boardgame.

... can the BAR guy have a thompson and if he can get to the BAR drop the thompson and pick the BAR up?

Yes. Each soldier can jump with (or without) a weapon, then make his way to the weapon canister and change weapons with something that's inside.

since I cant play I hope you cant reach the bazooka and a Panther shows up.   >:(

even better if that Panther comes out of a fog bank.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Panthers, in fog?

I'll believe it when I see it.

Anyway, no need to worry since I'm taking a jar of pickled onions with me. One good exhalation down the into the turret and 'der panzer ist Kaput'.

Is that good enough, Barth, or do you need Soldier-by-Soldier point spending breakdowns?

Gotcha. I'll give it a shot (subject to our Squad Leader's approval of course).

Star: your ass is most certainly going to be in at some point. This game gets bloodier than mirth at a tampon convention.

Okay, I think we need to re-think the loadout, UCG.

I recall going through this before; this mission is agonizing as you want to take so much but you can only take SO much. We, I think, have to eschew either the Bazooka or the BAR. I recommend not bringing the BAR because if you and I each have an SMG, we have some good auto-weapon support, and it saves us a buttload of points. You and I each get an SMG, and each squaddie (including DD) gets an M-1.

The Container will get a Bazooka and three rounds of Bazooka ammo. Why do it this way? It's kind of pointless to drop DD with a bazooka and nothing else (you can only drop with one weapon port). You can't drop with Bazooka ammo so it's a real leap of faith to assume that damn container won't float into the middle of an SS party. It's much better to have everyone able to hit the ground able to fight immediately instead of groping in the dark for containers or French bewbs.

The points we save means everyone gets plenty of ammo and we can even distribute six grenades as well.

I've created an Excel spreadsheet but I can't figure out how to attach the file - I've seen others do that in this forum but strangely for the life of me I can't find a function to do that. If someone knows, please share that info with me. Meanwhile I'll have to share a screenshot instead:



Only reason I didn't assign grenades to bawb and JD is because of their -1 WS, but we can reallocate if you want. It might be the only way they can kill something.  :2funny:

Speaking of, SDR should probably get that extra grenade.
