I was wondering if there is anyone out there who has converted the excellent Skirmish Campaigns books for use in Mein Panzer?Maybe make squads a platoon and platoon HQs company HQs?Keep vehicles at 1:1 or 1 = a section?I am sure someone has done this!?!

"assault section,"Our group has used the "Ghosts at Smolensk" campaign, and one of our group members, Sacha, is using the 7th Panzer in France '40 campaign. They work fine, although you are right they must be scaled up at least one level, preferably two. For example, a half-squad in SkirmishCampaign is usually a platoon in MP. Even then, there are fewer "pieces" on the board then the scenarios call for. Also, the scale for the maps is 100-150yds=1ft, which is considerably smaller than the standard MP scale. In most of these games we use the upcoming Meine Truppen scale of 1"=25yds, so that 1ft=300yds. Since the scenarios tend to be more infantry-oriented, this works well. We try to keep the relative proportion of forces equivalent, and always use the Morale & Command rules for balance.There were a few adapted scenarios from the SC series in the "MMG" section of the Download Library. All are unfortunately now missing?!?Gregory

Check the broken links section in the administrator, Gregory. They may still be there but not linked.
