Re: Do any Pint-Sized Campaigns contain lists with STG44s?

Bloody Bucket has the Assault Platoon for the Germans. 2 squads all with assault rifles, and a third squad with 2 LMG’s.

WSS Magazine-3 new campaigns!

The latest issue, Issue 100 of Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy has 3 campaigns for fallschirmjagers using CoC, and a 4th scenario easily adapted. Crete, Norway and Monte Cassino. The 4th is late war, using Battlegroup rules, would make for a good Big CoC game. Well worth a look!

Re: Random thought/s on close combat

On a different tack, grenading that officer may have been better. You don’t have to see your target to chuck grenades at them. You could stay out of sight and toss them in. Of course, he might toss some back!

Re: Why is the Sherman List 8?

Re: AP against Bunkers

This somewhat depends upon your definition of a bunker. I am doing research on D-Day in preparation of gaming parts for the upcoming 75th anniversary. Most of the D-Day bunkers were classed as type B, with walls and roofs 2 meters thick. They were engineered to withstand the naval guns, so any AP fr...

Re: New guy with a squad strength (dice) question

Never get in static fire fight with any opponent. It is a waste of your men and of your abilities. Many have already posted British tactics already. If you are using Americans, you have to make the most use of American special abilities and weaponry. The Americans have superior movement capabilities...

Re: Walls for battle in Carentan

Walls in northern France are usually dressed stone construction. Mostly light grey and tans (with the occasional darker/browner stones) with lots of mold and moss. I wouldn't worry about mortar as the afore-mentioned mold darkens it to a black/green/blackish-green. Many walls are also plastered/whit...
