Re: Daft Question

Crew do not fire their personal weapons. They are involved with servicing the gun to keep up its fire by running off to get more ammo, loading belts or magazines, getting another barrel ready for a swap, etc. In the case of an LMG, crew are working the weapon. Attached riflemen can fire their rifles...

Re: SP2 - too static?

The other factor to consider is the terrain. If the terrain makes it easy to defend, the game is more likely to devolve into a firefight. For example, if there's a large open area in the middle of the board, it takes some experience and nerve to still attack across it and win. It's often seems easie...

Re: link

Hello Jean,

We've been having a lot of problems with spammers recently. Perhaps you could introduce yourself and what rules that you use? Maybe a little information about that link would be a good idea as well.

Re: Vehicle permanently immobilized. Twice...

It's been KOed in effect, and that's good enough for me to call for a BTH roll.

Re: Wargame rules for tabletop soccer/football

I'm wondering if this wasn't very subtle clickbait. These are the only two posts by the OP.

Re: UHRAAAAH!

They might get that distance if there's no terrain for them to cross. If the board is really empty, it's likely that the JOPs will also be quite a distance apart (if they aren't back at the table edge). Additionally, the defender will be getting +4D6 per unit making contact in close combat (for dice...

Re: Starting in CoC, looking for help on 15mm vs 20mm

If you are planning to do 28mm Sharp Practice, then you should seriously consider 28mm WW2 as well. Hills, shrubbery, and trees don't change regardless of period so you will be able to use them for both games. Even some buildings might be able to do double duty. 28mm can get pretty expensive for veh...

Re: Starting in CoC, looking for help on 15mm vs 20mm

I think the primary consideration should be whether you have terrain in a scale. If so, play CoC in that scale. It looks and works equally great in any of the scales that you mentioned. I have 28mm figures (a company's worth of Germans and Soviets plus lots of support goodies), but if I was starting...

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE - INFAMY! INFAMY!

No real attachment to the Carry On films, but I will say that "Infamy, Infamy!" title is far more memorable than the other one (and easier to spell).

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

For infantry, I can really recommend Adler. Not only does Leon have the basic infantry covered, he's got engineers doing engineery things like cutting wires and detecting mines. Keep in mind that the picture is many times larger than the actual figures: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Sq92MlH6nQI/VASjMFq...
