All I know is that when WiF comes out, I expect a public and very entertaining AAR.

Happy to - I really enjoyed doing my first AAR's for CTGW. An AAR for MWIF would be a much more time consuming exercise - but good fun as there is SOOOO much to the game.

Quite apart from anything else that was going on in the world on June 22, 1941...

So when is Gary Grigsby's Western (and African?) Front coming out?

THE FIRST SILLY WARSPITE1-NEWBLETTE AAR WILL READ AS SUCH-


quote:

"September 1939; Sortied HMS Warspite out to escort a convoy to Malta. Italian naval & bomber forces ambushed us in the Western Med. HMS Warspite went to the bottom after barely waking up from a nights hot-pink ballyhoo bath-house party. Ship lost with all hands aboard. Game over. Seaman Silly Warspite1-Newblette MIA. The End."

Teensy-Weensy problem SLAAK ol' fruit. The image you have posted is of an Italian merchant that was bombed by its own side. The Italian aircraft missed of course, but the crew scuttled the ship in panic anyway, thanks to your lousy leadership skills.

HMS Warspite meanwhile was safely back in Alexandra in time for tea and medals - hussah!!

Game over. warspite1 is the victor.

SILLY WARSPITE1-NEWBLETTE, THAT IMAGE IS NOT ITALIAN. THAT OUTLINE WAS ALL THAT WAS LEFT OF YOUR BELOVED HMS WARSPITE. THE STORY ABOUT AN ITALIAN VESSEL BEING SUNK BY FRIENDLY FIRE, WELL THAT WAS MERELY CAMOUFLAGE THAT YOUR INTEL SWALLOWED HOOK LINE & SINKER!

Yes, you are right of course - the image looks just like the Warspite. How silly of me not to notice.....

I think not. History records that Warspite foundered en route to the breakers yards post war. An ignominious end for a great lady but it was Mother Nature that got her, not the Italians. Slaakman is once again a victim of his own propaganda.

Blame the Illuminati? No, we had nothing to do with it. The idea was considered at our meeting in Q1/41 but it was discarded in favor of assisting Adolph's plan for the secret base in Antarctica. We are powerful but there are limits to how many projects we can keep going at one time.

Silly Greyshaft-Newblette, you mustve been in the outhouse during the battle. The HMS Warspite is resting comfortably on the bottom of the Western Med with the rest of the British fleet. Silly Warspite1-Newblette himself is a POW in one of our fish tanks so he can enjoy intimate moments with dolphin-love & octopus grope.

I KNEW IT!!! Someone had to be responsible for Steve Guttenberg.... Now we know. I always assumed it was a fiendish Illuminati plot.

On April 8 1977 the punk band The Clash's debut album The Clash is released in the UK on CBS Records. Sales were acceptable and by August the potential for an identity change looked good. You work it out from here ...

Nope. I will simply put the 43rd Wessex Division on the Egyptian / Libyan border. They will be flanked by HMS Warspite sitting off the coast; her polished 15-inchers gleaming in the Mediterranean sun. As soon as SLAAKMAN's barmy army head into range a devastating barrage from the Grand Old Lady, combined with a well timed volley from the West Countrymen will see Rommel and his girlfriend Graziani quickly heading back to Tripoli. The British will soon be in Benghazi - just in time for tea and medals etc etc.

OH YEAH GOOD IDEA SILLY-WARSPITE1-NEWBLETTE, THAT'LL WORK JUST FINE JUST LIKE THAT TACTIC IN WWI WHERE THE INFANTRY CHARGED OVER OPEN GROUND AS BARREN AS THE DESERT INTO THE GUNFIRE!! OH WAIT CYRENAICA IS THE DESERT. DUH. THEN GOOD OL' HMS WARSPITE SHOULD HAVE NO TROUBLE ZEROING THOSE 15'S INTO THEIR TARGETS SINCE YOUR SPOTTERS CAN SEE THROUGH THE SMOKE BELLOWING FROM THE MOON-SIZED CRATERS WHERE STUKA BOMBS PENETRATED AND BLASTED THE FRAME TO BITS. SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD OL' WAR WINNER TO ME!
