Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 15 02 19)

I left my comments on your blog Mark but I forgot to add that the AAR further confirms my theory ( after trying to use it 4 or 5 times myself) that the 75mm inf gun is the biggest waste if points; even against troops in hard cover, you are better off with an additional squad or a MMG. PS The strawb...

Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign

So we kick off with the first scenario - Probe at Moditten. As the title says it's a probe scenario, a fairly standard scenario to commence a campaign. First outing for my Soviet SMG platoon and while they are not short of firepower the smaller platoon must last the distance across the campaign. Tim...

Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 15 02 19)

Not quite an AAR (yet) but a preamble before we embark on another campaign. This time, as the title says, it's the Westwind campaign that appeared in the Lardies Summer Special 2014. TT very kindly sent me a revised version of the campaign but we decided to be dull and boring and play the campaign a...

Westwind panzerfaust question

The campaign rules say: “The Soviets may use their Panzerfausts as anti􏰀 tank weapons, either issuing one per squad from List One, or as a dedicated Tank Killer Team from List Two. “ List one says: “One panzerfaust 60 per squad” Does this mean for one support point I can issue one panzerfaust to eac...

Re: Resources for campaign South Pacific Theatre

Definitely go with "At The Sharp End," as campaign play for CoC is fantastic. While it doesn't have character origins/backgrounds for the for the Japanese, you can easily cook something up that fits the bill (I did this for Italy, for instance). The Malaya 1942 campaign includes lists for Japanese ...

Re: Advice for first CoC game?

The problem with the patrol phase is that you don’t normally realise you’ve made a mess of it until you start playing. That’s when you discover the JoPs are too far forward, too far back, not mutually supporting etc. I’d try to get this point across to everyone, that is, the patrol phase is not a gi...

Re: CanCon Pacific terrain

My jungle terrain is much more modest yet I still find the odd Japanese or Australian tucked away amidst the undergrowth a few weeks later. I think TT has the ideal solution.

CanCon Pacific terrain

I took a load of pictures of John Bond's marvellous terrain for the CanCon tournament in Canberra. You can see them all here http://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/2019/01/cancon-and-chain-of-command.html.
