Re: Early War Handbook Queries

I've been looking forward to this handbook for quite some time. I very much like the new detail that it has brought to the game as well as the introduction of extra historical elements. So much depth! And the extra new scenarios! I'll look forward to seeing some campaigns (from TFL or other players)...

Re: Initiative draw

If D6s are giving too many ties, why not use D12s instead?
Add +2 for each banked die, ace, or whatever

Re: Gun Strike Ratings

Where would the French 1940 47mm gun be on there - a 5 (alongside the 50mm)? (nod) (nod) The 47mm SA35 L32 was a beast of a gun, penetrating 39mm of armour at 100m at 30-degrees. It's rated as a 5 on the Somua S35 and Char B1 bis The later SA37/39 mounted on the Laffly and firing APCBC could go thr...

Re: Giving cocaine to kids or: how to entice people to play CoC

As a "gateway drug" option, consider running some games of What a Tanker. Some pix from my game a few weeks ago. https://toofatlardies.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=9274 It's super lightweight, has lot of visual appeal, and only runs for a couple of hours. I have observed that novice CoC gamers t...

Re: Old Hickory campaign advice.

My group played Old Hickory but we adapted it. Instead of Germans attacking Americans in 1944, it was Germans attacking French in 1940 (with an armoured incursion instead of an air strike). It transitioned very well and the campaign ran to the full 8 games with a nail-biting German victory squeaked ...

Re: Old Hickory campaign advice.

Another question. So a MMG team from my fixed support was wiped out. Is it gone from the rest of the game? Or can I reconstitute it and take those casualties from the rifle squad? I know AT guns are lost...which really hurts, but do I lose that MMG since we had to flee the field and the team had be...

Re: 28mm Jeeps

I have a Warlord Panzer II in 1/56 and it's tiny. It's only slightly larger than an SdKfz 222 and much smaller than a Panzer III. It looks pretty much "in scale" to me. At 1/56, a 4.81m Panzer II model should be about 86mm long. My Warlord model measures out at 93mm. Set it next to a Panzer III or ...

Re: 28mm Jeeps

I went with the purist approach and bought the British airborne Warlord jeeps. They come with rider figures and those seem about right. I do understand your caution about relative scale though, as the Warlord Panzer II is definitely too large for 28mm / 56th-scale.
