Re: Early War Handbook Queries

Blitzkrieg 1940 book. Page 71, French AFVs. The Renault R35 and R39/R40 get ‘low profile’ but the Hotchkiss H35 and H39 don’t. These were pretty much the same tank, some made by Renault, some by Hotchkiss. Some small differences but pretty much the same thing. But most importantly, they were all the...

Re: Low Profile

In my gaming I've issued the Low Profile advantage to all vehicles which are lower than 220 cm. That way the Stug III gets the advantage which historically was significant compared to the T-34 for example. Thanks, that makes sense. Both the R35 and the H35 were the same height 2.133m, they should b...

Low Profile

I’ve not played yet but have the main rule book, and building up some French and German forces. So I have just bought the Blitzkrieg book and one thing has me a little puzzled. The French R35 is counted as Low Profile but the H35 isn’t. My understanding is that these were essentially the same tank, ...

Jump Off Points

Not played yet, but have the rule book which I have been skimming through. Trying to work out how many patrol markers and jump off points there should be. The rules are quite vague, just saying that it is determined by the scenario. Had a look at the scenarios in the back and it still isn’t 100% cle...

Beginner Question - Basing

Hi, I have purchased the rules and 20mm metal miniatures for 1940 French and German army lists. I have a couple of questions about basing. 1 - What sizes are best to use. I'm sure I could take a guess but wondering if there is an establish norm or information to save me trying to guess 2 - What mate...

Re: Basing Units Like AT Guns

Thanks for the replies. Seems the answer is to do what you prefer. I like the idea of separate figures as it does away with markers. But on the other hand if you have a well sculpted animated crew that go with the weapon it's nice to show them in the correct positions rather than disjointed. What's ...

Basing Units Like AT Guns

How do you go about basing things like anti-tank guns, mortars, HMGs. Lets take a typical AT gun which might be described as having 5 crew and a junior leader. When I collect my figures together I might end up with Gun model with three specific figures (like gunner and loader), maybe some ammo crate...

How Many Crew Figues

I'm new to CoC and I am a little unsure of the number of crew figures for a support weapon. For example, from the German 1940 army list PAK 36 anti tank gun with five crew and junior leader. I know it sounds obvious but does that mean Six Crew or Five Crew, one of which is junior leader Cheers, Nigel

German 1940 Army List

Very new to CoC so apologies if this is obvious. In the German 1940 Army list, the Panzer IV appears twice as follows List Four - Panzer IV A-C List Five - Panzer IV B-C Why is this. Surely the List Four available range covers the List Five range. Why would you spend 5 points when you can get the sa...
