Re: New player with a solo question

I'm interested to hear how you get on. I bought a copy of the IABSM rules nigh on ten years ago, but never got around to doing anything with them. My situation is now that solo play is practically the only option. I have a bunch of 1/72nd scale 8th Army & DAK figures and am looking at some sort of ...

Re: Guard v Guard casulties/moral difference

Hi R, Elite units can never be classed as "small" under the rules. See NB on page 14. So those British Life Guards will have to lose their elite status or be merged with someone else. Alternatively you might want to take up the option on page 13 to split your French cavalry unit into 2 battalions wh...

Re: Lard America Reps

If you are looking for some video guides on how Sharp Practice and Chain of Command plays then I would recommend checking out Travis Hiett's Tabletop CP YouTube channel. Travis is someone who has also discovered TFL's rules recently and he has done an excellent job of capturing his progress in the v...

Re: 1939 Poles errata

There is an element of generic listing in the support lists rather than going into the detail in every case. Rich Clarke would be the first to say that if your research shows something different then adjust the lists to suit, that's part of the flexibility of the system. Just make sure that your opp...

Re: Possible Barrage House Rules

TT, Troops in entrenchments only count as light cover in the first phase of a mortar stonk in CoC. After that being pinned cancels out the reduces cover effect of the HE so they are back to being in hard cover for subsequent phases. I've always interpreted that as troops being surprised and caught n...

Re: 1939 Poles errata

Fascinating stuff! And pity the poor rules designer trying to convert all of this mix of varying and evolving practices into a coherent and comprehensive whole without drowning us in minute detail and special rules. Plenty of potential here for tinkering to our hearts content in our own games. Meant...

Re: Possible Barrage House Rules

Thanks Andy. I generally use the mortar rules as they are, but I have made use of some of the suggestions I made to Iorweth when required to placate others. Main house rule of mine is to always require a ranging shot since most mortars in CoC are being called in there and then and are not pre-regist...

Re: >> Sorauren scenario of Welly Victories

Hi Michele, I don't know the scenario but for what they are worth my thoughts are as follows. Steep Slopes/Rough Terrain - according to the GDA rules on page 61 steep hills count as rough terrain and any Close Order Infantry firing do so as Inferior volleys. However, I suppose you could assume that ...

Sounds like my 12" minimum movement limit isn't justified after all! One lives and learns. :-)

Re: Early British Platoon Video

The Pre-Dunkirk platoons that had WO 3's in charge didn't have servants on their strength. We don't include them, yet that one fought and was sent off after the action was over. Likewise we ignore that the idea of a ten-man section was to have eight for actual battle. It was the same for the Americ...
