Squadron Forward!


I saw this on the Toofatlardies site and thought it would be worth getting hold of a copy for use with Bag The Hun. I have a good selection of 1/300th scale aircraft for WW2 aerial gaming including RAF and Luftwaffe for the Battle of Britain, Italian and German stuff for North Africa, together with  a handful of late war RAF planes for NW Europe. However, I've only managed half a dozen games at the club as interest is fairly limited.

I'd like to have another crack at BTH, either at the club or solo, so this looks like a good way to roll up an ad hoc but linked set of scenarios that might appeal to some of the chaps who've dabbled before. It's also not tied to any one campaign, so I can use my North Africa or late war NW Europe kit as a starting point. It would also give me an incentive to paint up the 'other half' for these theatres and, needless to say, I have plenty of little lead planes to start with.

I might make this an up and coming project, moving other things to one side for the moment such as the SAGA Vikings and the Normandy Firefight project. I haven't resolved the scale issue for Adventures in Jimland, so that can also be moved to waiting list until I make up my mind. This all depends on whether or not I can drum up some interest at the club and if I can spare the time before the summer holidays next month but it's worth a thought..

  1. I got a copy of Platoon Forward and really enjoyed it - it was also very adaptable to a wide range of campaigns and time periods. I think this will be similarly useful for exactly the type of gaming you describe, plus you can have a range of opponents as you play your own Lads
