Re: Feedback wanted: Introductory campaign set during Battle of the Bulge

I for one appreciate it! I'm just getting into COC and was looking for something EXACTLY like this to get going. Not much feedback except I like how you limit the support options. I wonder if we could even take it one step further and specify support options in the later scenarios, plus page numbers...

Re: Strudelheim Wunderwaffe on Beasts of War

I would love to see the force rosters for each of the armies used in the video. Were they ever posted anywhere? (I found the Bavarian army list to build my own but if the actual lists exist then I can just use them as my shopping list :D )

Re: Cancon 2017 in Canberra, Australia - Post Tourney Analys

Great report - thanks for posting it. Also, I learned that pinned units stay pinned until the end of the Turn -- really? I missed that, too (but I also haven't managed to play a game yet as I'm in the middle of a house move and haven't really gotten to study the game as much as I'd like). I wouldn't...

Re: Pickett's Charge Game Four

Those are 15mm?!?!? Bloody 'ell, they're gorgeous. I play in all scales but I would have sworn those were 28s. I've never been very interested in ACW but seeing this...well done, sir, and well done getting your son into playing!

Re: Youtube

Hi guys, Given Richard's recent loss of his mother-in-law, I don't think this is likely to get done anytime soon. I'm assuming you have read the battle reports from Lard Island News? http://toofatlardies.co.uk/blog/?cat=3 I never played the 1st edition and these battle reports convinced me I wouldn'...

At the start of the following turn, the smoke expands to its full diameter 3. On the turn after that, remove the smoke CoC has a more variable tim...

Re: Congratulations Rich and Crew

Bravo! Looks like a fun game - I'd love to see details or hear from people who played in the game. It looks like the Royal Navy was acting in support?

Somehow, no matter what the game is, adding a boat standing off in the water just makes it inherently better to me. :-)

Re: Sharp Practice Deployment Point Competition launched

Well, I just got word from Shapeways that the pieces I created for mine are in the mail -- 7 days later than promised. :-/ Assuming they actually arrive on time that will give me about 6 hours from receipt to deadline. I don't think I will make it for the contest but I'm dang sure going to post them...
