Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 08 04 19)

We reach Map 4 and the Signal Box at Seerappen with both platoons worn down with casualties. The Germans continue to push forward and the Russians really need to win a scenario to push the Germans off their schedule. Another tense and very interesting encounter in a great campaign. The full AAR is h...

Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 08 04 19)

Thanks. Against my own advice I went into this without much of a plan and suffered accordingly. Taking nothing away from Dave that was a good defence. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I’ve already refought this so much better in my head.

Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 01 04 19)

The Russians may have lost the last scenario but they managed to deal the Germans a very bloody nose in the process, so they decide to strike back immediately and see if they can take advantage of the situation. The campaign rolls on and I continue to test my decision to try this with a SMG platoon....

Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 01 04 19)

Thanks for the comments. I'm glad I managed to convey some of the tension because that was how it felt to play it. Best of all the tension worked both ways. The attacker was always unsure what was about to happen next but as the defender I was taking a gamble that I could strike at the most opportun...

Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 04 03 19)

The Germans continue their push to escape encirclement while I ponder my decision to select a SMG platoon to try to stop them. To be honest I'm enjoying the challenge it presents, despite their small squad size and limited range, in the right situation they have a lot of hitting power. I've tried my...

French war memorial

No self-respecting French village should be without one and with a France 1940 campaign somewhere on the horizon this was a logical terrain project. There's a step by step tutorial on my blog here https://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/2019/03/20mm-french-war-memorial.html Here's a 'before and afte...

Re: NWF COC

For the ‘disappearing’ units you could instead consider something like the Japanese Ruse move, allowing a surprise move of a JoP? Alternatively a rule from Force on Force which allows irregulars greater movement distances when they start and end their move out of LOS of the enemy. They could move wi...

Re: Japanese tank hunters

I believe the Russian term for them was ‘smertniki’, which pretty much translates as ‘suicide bomber’.

Re: My take on hedgerows

Great hedgerows. I was just waiting for the zombies to emerge from the haunted mansion and take out that PzIV ;=)
