I've not read City Fighting rules yet but other than that the scenario looks good.

The problem I have is the selector- I've just been looking at The Last Levy force selector and there is no way I can do a legal force as the mandatory infantry units are limited to Volkssturm squads, Hitler Youth squads and Kriegsmarine squads none of which I have the models for. Closest I can get is a generic platoon using only units from The Last Levy.
Warning: This post may contain sarcasm.
Current games & armies played- Gaslands: Idris. Full Thrust: NAC & NSL. Bolt Action: Late war German. Judge Dredd: Justice Dept & Renegade Robots. Kings of War: Dwarfs & Kingdoms of men.

We'll figure out sonething that works for you. I mean, you've had nearly 3 months to mention issues with the selector but still... ::)

As discussed on Monday night, we're still on for Sunday. We're going to try this with half the number of players we intended and see how it goes.

On that note, this is who I'm expecting to turn up. If there's any changes to this PLEASE let us know ASAP. We've had a couple of people who said they were interested in playing but haven't committed, if that's you then speak up now. Especially if you want to borrow miniatures from someone.

Rob - Russians
Dan - Germans
Alan - Germans
Martin - Americans
Grahame - British

We'll be using the club's and my Berlin/Stalingrad scenery, if anyone has any that they think would be suitable pleade bring it along. The more scenery we have for this, the better.

Hi Rob,

Great. Do you want us to cut down the points for the allies or is it still 2,000?

Same points value Martin, we've halved the number of players on both sides so it should work out.
