Re: Patrol Markers query

I guess I fall on the other side of this - I don't think it's "gamey" because it's part of the process. "Pinching" potential deployment zones is absolutely a valid (and sometimes necessary) tactic. Had you thrown a second patrol marker on top of your first locked one (like he did), then he's screwed...

Re: New Player; Interrupt Question

I'm not sure it's specified explicitly in the rules, and I've seen it done both ways. Our house rule is that you can only activate a single position in the tank (like an "uncommanded vehicle") because using an Interrupt specifically does not let you activate a leader, and vehicles normally activate ...

Re: Poland 1939: The Narew Crossing

Wow, tense game! These are always the best.

Out of curiosity, are these all separate actions, or are they linked in some way? Do the results of one battle have any effects on the others, either in terms of casualties or position?

Re: Pulling the chain

One way to handle this in a campaign scenario might be to do it as a wildcard: The defender uses this option in lieu of fighting a battle. When played, resolve 4 hits on each unit in each player's Core Platoon for the purposes of determining casualties sustained in the bombardment for this Campaign ...

Re: Force support

Yup, that's correct. The German platoon is much larger than the British platoon, which accounts for the big difference in Force Rating. Just be careful taking too much armor as the British, as it will skew things heavily because the Germans have nothing in their core platoon that can deal with it.

Re: 25 Pounders in Chain of Command

The main book lists the L28.8 25 pdr gun as AP 8, HE 7. The CoCulator/Consolidated Arsenal puts it at List 5. I know these weapons were pressed into service as anti-tank guns, and especially in the Western Desert campaigns there are numerous accounts of them engaging enemy tanks over open sights. Th...

Re: GREEN ARMY

It depends on the army list. Some get more/fewer Command Dice, others don't. It usually specifies in the army list. For instance, the 1939-40 Soviet list states "5 when Regular. 4 when Green." EDIT: In general, the game works better (more smoothly, anyway) when everyone is using 5 dice. If I need to...

Re: Beginner

OK, let's break this down into steps: The first thing you'll need to settle on is a scale. Ask any 10 wargamers, "What's the best scale for CoC" and you'll get 12 answers. It really is a matter of personal taste. CoC is relatively scale-agnostic, but at 15mm you're playing at the scale where the fig...
