Re: CoC Pacific Book

Your Chinese platoon looks great, even got a bog sword bloke. Where did you get the figures or are they kit bashed? Are they 28mm?

Re: CoC Pacific Book

Richard is doing the final print layout as we speak. British & Commonwealth forces are being done first with others to follow. As he has said, this is going to be a fairly large book with Pacific, Burma-India and China all covered; so not a quick process. The terrain rules are all settled as far as ...

Re: Chain of Command Malaya 1942 PSC Scenario One AAR The Pictures!

Enjoyed watching the game. Your scenario played out like the ambush at Gemas by B Coy, with the Japanese getting badly shot up. Very nice looking table as well. By the way, are you playing 15mm or 20mm (1/72)? Look forward to more.
Cheers,
Len

Re: Nomonhan / Khalkin Gol scenario

It also coincided with a significant reorganisation of company & platoon TO&E within the IJA. This changed the platoon from four 12-man Rifl...

Re: Share your favourite house rules

Here's another one regarding tank machineguns. AFV MACHINE GUN RATINGS: Bow MG: These things were situated low to the ground (giving them a poor view), had a very restricted field of fire, were not stable and could only be aimed by fall of shot (limiting their effective range). Their marginal utilit...

Re: Share your favourite house rules

You asked for it!! As an inveterate rules tinkerer and someone infatuated with minutia, I cannot resist making house rules to reflect my research and understanding. I'll try and avoid spamming this thread. To start with, for those of us who have models of 3"/81mm mortar teams and would like to use t...

Re: French Airborne 1940. Uniforms?
