    Korean war engagement Not bad for a PS1 game If you are like me and became hooked on PANZER FRONT you probably asked the good lord at night to protect your family and to inspire the makers to bring out a version for the PS2 Though maybe not in that order Well our prayers have been answered its here its in the shops and its better than ever This time the combat is directed to one period of time and the vehicles are only those that were available at the time The period is the early Western Desert campaign Who would have thought it You can forget your MEDAL OF HONOUR S and your CALL OF DUTIE S Now you can fight O Conners drive through the desert and the early engagements with the Africa Korp Straight from the beginning you can select either to be Germans Italians or British During the training game to learn the Controls I chose British and found myself leading my squadron of A13 cruisers yes I did just write A13 cruisers against Panzer 3 s and 2 s You learn pretty quickly not to go charging in The 2pdr is pretty crap against frontal armour and your armour is none to good either If you want some thing a bit tougher then you can change to a Matilda 2 or if you are a masochist you can select the Mk VI light tank if you win in this vehicle you are cheating The graphics are up to the standard we now expect to see in a game and the vehicles are beautifully accurate The research that has gone into this game is their for all to see The recreated battlefields are exactly as they were historically At the moment I m still trying to

    obviously the most devastating volley is at close range and gets worse the further away the target Volleys have to be timed perfectly loading takes a while so timing is crucial terrain effects are well represented within the game swamps marshes slow troops down but they can also extinguish the fuses on cannon balls stopping the ball from exploding Hills increase the range of both musketry and cannon so high ground can prove useful to say the least Graphics are very good and have improved since the original game trees sway in the win ect infact a would say they are as good if not better than those on Blitzkreig burning Horizons and those who have played the original games will find the gameplay familiar yet also in some ways different either way I do suggest playing through the tutorials a couple of times before playing a skirmish Battle Campaign or online It does take a bit of getting used to but you pick up the nitty gritty along the way but also the tutorials can be fun There are quite a number of Napoleonic Battles to have a crack at and although I ve not tried one yet only had the game two weeks I am looking forward to pitting my wits against the computer or net players in refights when I think I m good enough that is There is also a nice little campaign system to have a go at movement is done by plotting on a map units can be bought and cities fortified this would be an excellent item to try via network with your mates diplomacy is available to each player so alliances can be made or broken Battles are fought in the normal way on screen and the victor taking or keeping the

    the four levels of the carrousel one piece is so obviously the bottom with the lazy jenny on the bottom and one the top with various size holes for your brushes count em 16 I don t own that many brushes The other two well its imagination time There are also 6 plastic tubes 3 X 3inch and 3 X 4inch and 5metal rods The main reason for all these bits because as you can tell there are too many is you can have the carrousel set at different levels from approx 15 inch to 18 inch total height and with a base diameter of 11 5 inch it doesn t take up too much room Construction This is an easy product to assemble the instructions are easy to follow really only giving you four different set up options The main thing to get right is the strengthening bar that goes through the middle I had to attempt it twice before I got them together but even then I don t think it took more than about five minutes to assemble and it looks impressive Now for the real test Before and After Well the picture speaks a thousand words Not only is it keeping my paints in check it even inspired me to clean my work bench up that takes some doing This gives your work area a more professional look and I actually found some models that I forgot I had people coming into the shop were impressed too unfortunately it inspired one gent to try and buy my paints which I suppose could be another use Conclusion Well what can I say without gushing too much its impressive to look at versatile and functional holds between 64 and 120 paints it has the ability to hold up

    can be wiped off quite easily All the pieces come on two sheets which are slightly bigger than an A4 sheet of paper and which have been pre cut and just need to be punched out a simple exercise which is no bother what so ever How does it work Well simple you have a couple of options which spring to mind the first of which is by using a bit of low tack masking tape at the ends of each section it is quite easy to join the pieces together or you can lay the sections out without tacking them which ever way is easiest for you Obviously the none joining method would be better used on a flat surface rather than textured boards All in all I reckon that these should come in handy like I said to all gamers and especially in the case where gamers use various scale minis as as I have already mentioned the sections become rivers or streams dependent on the scale minis used Price well that comes in at 17 50 Euros which at a rough estimate of exchange to the Euro works out at 12 00 Check current exchange rates to get the proper price which for the quality of the item and the amount you get combined with the multiple uses I feel is quite reasonable Postage rates are 2 50 Euros for Europe 3 50 Euros for the rest of the world How can you get hold of them Well you can get your sets via the following methods First of all you can order via the following email address info walrecht nl by phone on 31 33 4755 543 Or by snail mail at Rob Walrecht Fuutstraat 6 3815 JP Amersfoort The Netherlands Rob accepts payment via VISA

    book Peter Antill gives a competent re telling of a familiar tale according to the usual Osprey Campaign format without really adding any new perspectives to the literature of the battle It contains all that you might expect strategic background a coherent narrative and adequate if not over detailed Orders of Battle The eight colour maps are really excellent and the black and white photographs are well chosen containing a particularly interesting selection from the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington New Zealand As usual however the specially commissioned paintings really add little to the book and I wonder why Osprey continue to bother with them in this series The final chapter on the battlefield today is rather disappointing amounting to little more that a description of the various military cemeteries In fact there is still a lot worth seeing on Crete and the hire of a car can give an interesting touch of variety to a beach holiday on the island The Maleme sector is well worth a visit as is the road over the mountains to Sfakia watch out for the hand painted signs down a side road to a private military museum where the elderly owner a teenager

    there has been no study of the significant errors that Napoleon made himself which though apparently trivial at the time proved to be major factors in his downfall Digby Smith tracks his rise to power his stewardship of France from 1804 15 through to his exile He highlights his military mistakes such as his unwillingness to appoint an effective overall supremo in the Peninsular and the invasion of Russia while the Spanish situation was spiralling out of control Smith also scrutinises naval mistakes notably Napoleon s inability to comprehend the intricacies of naval operations his impatience with his admirals and his failure to invest ships and men Smith also tracks diplomatic and political errors highlighting his inability to conclude lasting peaces and to compromise Smith finally addresses domestic and economic blunders such as the establishing and maintenance of the Continental System across Europe the imposition of a ban on direct trade with Russia which led to France paying higher prices for naval stores of Russian origin after they passed through the hands of German middlemen and the cost of creating various kingdoms and principalities and deposing incumbent rulers to place his relatives on their thrones Digby Smith is a respected
