Re: SYW Russian Special Rules

While I understand that Stoic Serfs is taken 'as is' from the Napoleonic list, I like Captain Fortier's idea that it should be automatic. However I think it should only apply to units of Line Infantry. So perhaps: Stoic Serfs: Any Unit of Line Infantry ignores the first point of Shock taken from Sho...

Re: Fisticuffs

I think it's important to recognise that just because one man in a Group makes contact, if he is part of a Formation that doesn't mean every Group in the Formation will fight, only that his Group will (and may be supported by adjacent Groups who are themselves not directly fighting). There's no need...

Re: Converting the WSS campaign to CoC

A platoon would probably be something around 450 points. However I think you'd be better to start with each available German force being a platoon and balancing from there rather than trying to build CoC forces to try and match a BA points system because a 'normal' game of BA is 1000 points and a 'n...

Re: WSS Magazine-3 new campaigns!

It's due basically now. I think Christmas delays the January issue a bit. Normally they're released on about the 30th of the preceding month,

Re: WSS Magazine-3 new campaigns!

Road to Dombås and Eyrie of the Green Devils are written for CoC. Gates of Heraklion is written a bit more generically written but the forces are presented pretty much in CoC terms and it is essentially CoC-based. Dombås needs the '40 Handbook for some of the rules and a scenario set up found therein.

Re: WSS Magazine-3 new campaigns!

Road to Dombas is a 7 game 'sudden death' campaign over three maps.
Gates of Heraklion is two linked scenarios.
Eyrie of the Green Devils is a single game.

Re: Highland Garrons and OoB's...

Pale buff laced white would do for the facings of Cholmondeley's Regiment of Foot (Falkirk) and was a fairly common facing so wouldn't restrict you to just them.
