I'm not sure how many people here are HMGS members but I was really excited to see games featuring the British 6th Airborne at Normandy being run. I already signed up for the Saturday afternoon Red Devils game.

Not sure when the items will be on sale but can't wait.


For more info about the games being run at Fall In, go to www.fall-in.org and select the PEL link on the left. The link to the list is on that page. The list, of course, is of all games being run. Just search for SMG.

Makes me wonder if that is a test run of some new soldiers/minis or just theme and scenario by using the existing 101st and calling them the British.

I can't imagine LBG doing a game where they use the Americans and call them British. To me they are better than that. I know it has been hinted at and hopefully soon they will be here.

We know that:
1. LBG owns the miniatures line of figs that they use.
2. The have many more molds of figs than what they use in SMG. Including Brits.
3. They have mucho painters on retainer/staff

I would hazard that you will in fact see British troops painted as such and not repainted US figs.

This is the real deal. Actual British Airborne troops. New miniatures, paint schemes, weapons and all new card art.

Oh man! You have no idea how hard it has been not to let this out of the bag.

This is just half of what #5 was. Do I have your permission to let the other half out of the bag?

Please. Please. Please.

And the people rejoiced!!

I know I have heard a few things from people at conventions but was asked not to say anything so I too wonder what other things are in store for us.

So if we're getting more Allied troops in the form of British Paras, will we be getting new figures for the Germans as well?

With Equipment and Tactics coming up, will there be dedicated scout sculpts?

I don't want to detract from the awesomeness of the Red Devils landing, but I'm curious what constitutes a Scout or a Skirmisher? I assume they are to enhance/enable the weapons and tactics. But will they be equipped different from other troopers? Or will they have special/enhance abilities or stats? Such as a longer sighting or shooting range?

There should be some German paras to put against the British. There must have been some instance where the two met, that would make a great Christmas release for SMG....

It's later yet, but some 12th SS or something might be interesting. When vehicles are introduced then PANZER MEYER!

Jeff has mentioned that there will be Fallschirmjäger to face off against the 82nd in a future release (Causeway?). IIRC, the British Para's would be facing line infantry.

With La Fiere Bridge, Snipers, Skirmishers, etc. There is certainly enough content that could be released between now and Christmas to keep us busy. Not to mention Causeway, additional terrain, Solider registry or Tactics and Equipment. It could be a very exciting 4th quarter.

At Cold Wars this past spring (when I bought in, in a big way) one of the SMG guys told me that they had plans for British troops down the way, set in Italy. So news of the British Paras is a pleasant surprise, though for the present I'll be disciplining myself to stay with the Americans.

I thought "Causeway" might be offered at "Fall In," but it sounds as though that will not be the case. Perhaps they'll take pre-orders.

I'm hoping for La Fiere Bridge, since pre-release copies were distributed at WBC.

Anyone know if there will be a Pegasus Bridge scenario or expansion now that we are getting British Paras?

Anyone hear if LBG will still be attending Fall-In?

Not much activity here. I hope they weathered Sandy safely!

And still planning on attending Fall-In.
