Re: Help needed with 'Old Hickory' map symbols

Rocks or duck ponds would effectively be the same in game play, unless the rocks are big enough to hide behind or the pond is over 5 feet deep.

Re: Stare-Vinobrady (Austerlitz) - Cover

Thank you for the clarification. While the distinction between 'hard' and 'soft' cover with regard to firing, is now relegated to the history bin. I still think a hit is a hit. Being behind a leaf presents less protection than behind a wall - I know where I would feel safer. CP Sure, I'd prefer to ...

Re: Stare-Vinobrady (Austerlitz) - Cover

Vines provide no more protection against muskets than they would for shot or canister. What they do provide is uncertainty about where the targets are and that is no different for musket shots or ball or canister. Sure, you shoot canister at a guy skirmishing behind some vines, but maybe he is just ...

Re: Covering Fire against troops in buildings

I'd agree. Cover fire supposed to be against a point of terrain (although I allow it against a particular unit as well) and I'd say that cover fire does not apply if the terrain is out of LOS, which it would be in your case.

Re: Multiple Phases

I believe that TT's solution was that a unit can only shoot once, no matter how many phases you have in your run.

Re: Ongoing Rule Clarification Thread

It's best to think of CoC snipers as more like designated marksmen, who are there to harass the enemy through potential and continuous threat rather than to pick off a single high-value target and then withdraw. Actual snipers as we now think of them would be very rare.

Re: WW2 6mm Hex terrain and Lard games

I based my 6mm figures on steel and then I lined my carrier with magnetic sheets. My figures stay in place and don't bang into anything. It also gives the bases some heft. If you base using plastic or don't base at all, protecting the paint and any thin pointy bits is a big problem. I painted the ba...

Re: 15mm measurement

The answer is that the terrain will dictate whether the 4x4 is too small. With plenty of LOS blocking terrain, it should be plenty big enough.

Re: Rifle Grenades Vs Armour

Rifle AT grenades should be a significant downgrade from bazookas, 'shreks, fausts, and even PIATs. They are a step above satchel charges, sticky bombs, and molotov cocktails, but only because you don't have to be nearly as close to the tank to attack it. If they were any good, there would have been...

Re: Cleaning oxidised figures

There are better alternatives to dettol out there. I've used acetone with a toothbrush with good results. I've heard that neat rubbing alcohol also works.
