So we are looking at a 5-player PBEM. Teams and optionals to be confirmed.

Players

Team Sweden (Axis)
Orm ?
PeskPesk ?
GeneralAdvance (Italy)

Team England (Allies)
AllenK ?
warspite1 ?

We are looking to inject a faster pace to this multi-player. Although we will be in charge of our own designated powers, any player can give orders for his side if the owning player is unavailable.

Hopefully we can mitigate any falling out over 'pants' decisions by lots of comms so we all have some idea what our team mate(s) are thinking.

We shall see.....

My Preference is to play with Cruisers In Flames

I don't mind 1D10 (with Blitz) or 2D10

I don't like Forts - just more clutter without the benefit of having a sexy unit on the map.

Over to the others

Suggested Standing Order: Subs in major ports subjected to port attack are not included in combat.

Agreed.

Suggested Standing Order 2: No CAP - unless possible CAP use is mentioned beforehand - and only used at special and rare occasions

Sounds good to me.

Edit: House rule is only Strategic Bombing can be flown as a night mission.

Gents - I forgot about this. Can we please forget CAP. No one ever remembers it and, for some totally unknown reason, it REALLY annoys me What do you reckon?

That is ok with me.

It has been used a couple of times only during all the turns I've played like this. Although when it has been used it has been when it was fairly important.

I've sought to give the CW some range to their fighter arm - albeit these aircraft are pretty poor.

The French also get a decent bomber should they last sufficient time to buy one.

The US destroy what looks like a pile of poo (technically speaking). There are some ropey 3-3 TRS but I seem to recall Brian Brian saying don't get rid of Allied lift.... so.....

The set-up will take about 2 minutes as I have a wee while to put errors right.....

I won't bother posting a picture. The navy is split between Norfolk and San Diego and most air and land units are on the west coast.

Instead I'll post a picture from Norfolk, England... which is nowhere near Norfolk Virginia where the US Fleet are....

You lost me HOWEVER, for the avoidance of doubt, THIS is the main thread for this AAR. Apologies for the earlier confusion, I'm afraid there is a war on and it's impossible to get the staff.

Forgot to show the USSR set-up earlier.

2 GARRS are at Murmansk. CAV and ART at Minsk. The rest of the western forces are positioned in the south.

Man I am so out of practice playing the Allies!

The ART could have been scrapped but was saved by its movement allowance, which could be useful. I remove the lesser of the two land-based Swordfish, the Anson and they very worst carrier fighters - and there is a lot of competition....

I got 2 Nigerian and a South African TERR which is not helpful . I've set up the Royal Navy in 4 fleets - Home, Mediterranean and Force H. The large fleet in Bombay will be broken up and passed around to these three commands. A number of cruiser squadrons are also dotted around. Malta has an Infantry in place. TRS are set up to escort the BEF, while the Liners will hopefully be available to transport troops from all over the Empire to where needed.

The South African TERR is actually one of the best TERR CW can get. Because it is considered a Major Power unit. So no hassle in sending it to any other CW minor like Egypt, or Burma, and so on. And it can co-operate, if I recall correctly, with other CW minor units.

Although two Nigerian territorials seems.. well.. one to many. Although didn't they do a nice job in Italian East Africa?

There are ‘Europe’ (incl. Africa) & ‘Any Map’ TERR to draw, iirc. The South African TERRs are some of the best to draw.

Is best to scrap the 2-2 French ART (& older CW motorized ART as well), because the AT/AA units are the most valuable French pieces. So much so that I have come to feel that using the ‘Artillery’ optional units adds about a turn to the time required for Germany to beat France.
