New M44 scenario - Defense of Meiktila - from Game Trade Magazine #95 Sun, 24 February 2008 19:24
As some of you might have been aware, there was a Battlelore scenario that was suppose to be a M44 scenario in Game Trade Magazine #94. Well it looks like #95 has that scenario.

The Defense of Meiktila scenario uses Airpack and Pacific Theatre expansions.

Thus here is a link to that scenario (created using the M44 scenario editor) :

In case any wonder the validity of the scenario, here is a link
from Game Trade Magazine of the above scenario :

What are the Germans doing in Burma?!
Razz

Ran across this one by accident myself a couple of days ago and made mention on my site.

Looks interesting.

Because I cannot tell the difference between brown and green on the type of paper used in the magazine. Now they are the proper color, k? Smile

Dear Caboose,
Played this scenario twice and enjoyed it. Found that airpower was really involved in both games. Thanks for your efforts in producing and researching this battle. You can read up on my efforts in the AAR.

I'm confused. Confused I thought the battle was first produced in that magazine and Caboose just copied it into the Scenario Editor for everyone. Not that I'm saying that wasn't a nice thing to do, but we should probably give credit to the person who did the research and creation of the scenario.

But maybe I'm wrong. If so, thanks Caboose. It looks fun.

I'm pretty sure this is a Richard Borg scenario. I think that Caboose has just done a recreation for the general benefit of everyone here.

Dear folks,
Don't want to give undue credit to the wrong fellow! To whomever produced this scenario - Thanks! By the way, in the scenario, the Allied player is allowed to reinforce at the airfield with a DFH card if the airfield is vacant. Do all three airfield hexes have to be vacant or just any one hex?

Found the answer on TERRAIN PACK RULES p.9
"If indicated in the Special Rules of the scenario, a player may
land reinforcements on an airfield hex when there are no
ENEMY units on ANY of the airfield HEXES. When a Direct from
HQ command card is played, for one order, one infantry unit
is placed on an airfield hex. The unit may not move or battle the turn it lands".

Clarification - I got the scenario from GTM and that is why I put that info at the bottom of the scenario..so no, I did not create it. I just copied the info from the magazine over. Since I suspect there are some people (i.e. non Americans) who probably don't get the magazine.

Thus I didn't create it - just copied it over. Obviously I would have give the person(s) who did create it their proper credit, but that info isn't there.

As for the scenario, definitely looks fun to play. Not a lot of units either although those allies sure look pretty good with 3 artillery pieces on the border lines between center/left or center/right. Of course if the allied person gets a lot of right cc cards, could be a long day for them! (but the plus side is they can keep that aircraft up a long time though since the runway is on that side!!)

Stevens, if you read the scenario notes, it also stated that as well under the Special Rules sections - 2nd item in the list.

Obviously doesn't list if the unit can move or battle BUT does state that all the airfield hexes have to be not occupied. Although the note could been clarified more by saying not occupied BY THE ENEMY though <G>

Dear Caboose,
You are correct in that it did not say vacant "by the enemy" which was my sticking point. Thanks!
