Re: British intervention force

Germane to this topic, I just picked up an interesting book titled "A World on Fire: Britain's Critical Role in the American Civil War" by Amanda Foreman. I need to finish the Chickamauga trilogy I'm currently chewing my way through before I'll have a chance to dive into it in depth, but I wanted to...

Re: Supply convoy ambushes scenario ideas

Sometimes wildly asymmetric scenarios can be a ton of fun. The trick is just in deciding what the victory conditions for each side are going to be. We're play-testing what I hope will eventually become a "Totensonntag" PSC right now which pits a German armored platoon against a bunch of South Africa...

Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 18 04 19)

Fantastic! Great use of Covering Fire and smoke grenades. This one played out as an almost textbook case of both layered defense as well as find, fix, & flank. It's so cool to see these kinds of tactics well represented on the tabletop.

Really fun AAR. Sounds like things were hotly contested all around!

Re: Blitzkrieg scenario in 1940 Handbook

I played this mission with my 8-year-old son using plastic army men, with him as the attacker. He was racking up CoC pips at a furious pace and took a fiendish kind of glee in stripping pips off my total every time I was getting close to the 2 full dice needed to win the scenario. The little scamp. :)

Re: Greetings and a Pair of Questions

1. I don't know about this, but if you are savvy about the way you do it, you can expand the game to many more than 4 players without introducing any extra complexity in the turn sequence. What you should NOT do is just dump more leader chips/cards into the bag, as this generally produces very poor ...

Re: Leader breaking with unit

So a JL detaches himself from a broken section that eventually routs so he is solitary and then he moves to within 4" of a section that lost its leader he can now assume command?? I don't think so!! "Attached" does not necessarily mean "in command." If a solo JL whose squad is wiped out wants to ru...

Re: Any Big CoC campaigns?

I wrote one for Kasserine Pass. PM me your e-mail address and I'll shoot you a copy. When we played it, it was an Italian Infantry platoon and German Tank platoon versus an American Infantry platoon and a British Tank platoon. But the rules are flexible enough to allow you to mix-and-match as you se...

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

Yeah, I think this game really highlights how well CoC handles the tension of maneuver-to-contact and the "empty battlefield." Creeping forward, creeping forward, creeping forward, fearing something is about to happen, creeping forward, then suddenly all hell breaks loose! There's a short, sharp eng...
