Have the same issue with Avast blocking the website. I've lodged a false positive report to them, but I don't know if it will do any good. I have to use my work laptop (uses Norton/Symantec AV) to get to the site now.

Just tried again, comes up with the same thing THREAT HAS BEEN DETECTED, so it either hates me, or its something to do with new windows which has been a pain in the bum since I loaded it :banghead:

Just tried it on my phone, and that worked, so I need to find a way of stopping it being blocked on my laptop.

I am absolutely no expert, but this might work. I'm still running Windows 8.1, so not sure that it is the same in Windows 10.

Right click on your browser's short-cut and choose 'Properties'.

Then choose the 'Compatibility' tab. Under that there is an option called 'Compatibility Mode' which allows you to run the program as if it was running under an earlier version of Windows. If that doesn't work there is also 'Compatibility Troubleshooter' option under the same tab.

Fingers crossed.

Only works if I turn off Avast. Actually even with Avast shields turned off it still blocks. Doesn't block on android.

I'm still waiting on my rule books to arrive, however i do have a question about how the battlegroups are built here.

Army builders for other WW2 games i play tell me how many models are needed for squads etc. This doesn't appear to do that. Am i correct in thinking that the books pre-define a squad?

Like a pz grenadier squad may be made up of 10 men including a LMG section? Or a russian rifle squad is 12 men?

Any pre information appreciated.

Thank you, i'm taking this to mean things are "pre-ordained" of sorts. Some games i've played define the squad while others allow you to monkey around with it. Found a link to some battlereps where forces were laid out showing us newcomers kind of how things work. Considering i've already Painted 3 boxes of german and Soviet Infantry along with 2 boxes each of Heavy Weapons compliments for them i'm relatively sure i've more than enough models for any games i wish to play. I've panthers, Mark IV, IIIs, Stugs, T34s galore, T70s, most everything.

Based upon my "300pt" lists, i'm heading to my hobby shop today to pick up some gaz jeeps and a couple other things i saw i didn't have.

It's not like for example Bolt Action where you buy a basic squad then add various bits to it. Organisation reflects real world TO&E. The two you cite are German squad 5 man rifle team and 3 man LMG, Russian 8 man squad including LMG.

Thank you, this makes sense to me according to the models in the boxes. I've actually a 4th box of russian and german guys i've not painted yet all from PSC. Something about their models i've really liked over the years. Each sprue has a different base finish so i could build and identify each sqaud in game. Each box of 3 sprues were used to build a 3 single squads for me, so this will translate well into this game as well.

I see escentially what is going on via the print out from battlegroup builder. So for instance if i select a soviet rifle platoon i'm going to have 4 squads made as the book describes along with a defined command squad. More or less like that.

I believe i'm understanding how this will resemble. I'm worse than a kid in a candy store, swear it i do.

I downloaded the Dispatches from Facebook. I now have an inside look at how your system seems to be working in so far as models. It also makes more sense to me what i'm looking at on the army builder. I really appreciate you all.

I'm very excited to play this now, and even more so since grabbing the PDF. I want to expose the local gaming group to this prior to christmas if at all possible. Looks amazing, and the pics of the hardbacks look like they rival the bolt action books or maybe better.

Just wondering if the author of this site is still around, and if so are the two lists from the new rule book going to be added?

I've been using this app and find it really helpful.

Thanks.
