Re: Armored Platoon Command Dice

I've had one tank on the table and not been able to activate it every turn. Though adjusting the number of die for tanks without radios might be a good idea. Peter In big CoC you can have a separate tank platoon with its own set of 5 dice and a senior leader, with no additional support units to wor...

Re: Armored Platoon Command Dice

Yes, but if you don’t roll 3,s you are rolling something else...1s and 2’s make 3’s and 4’s. By all means try it it with 5 dice for a 3 tank platoon, and keep an eye out for how many phases you get where the platoon is prevented from doing whatever activations it desires. Trust me, there won’t be ma...

Re: Armored Platoon Command Dice

Yes it’s 5. However.... Generally speaking if you have a 3 or even 4 tank platoon, 1 of which is a senior leader, and you have 5 dice, then it’s an extremely rare set of 5 dice which won’t allow you to do pretty much exactly what you wish every phase. What I do these days is give a tank platoon the ...

Re: clarification request on 9.1.1 hits on leaders and forward observers

There is no rule mechanic which enables you to share hits between an AFV and and infantry target.
Therefore you target one or the other.

Re: 3", 80mm, 81mm Mortars, are they over powered?

I played a similar variable beaten zone idea but ditched it in the end because it just extended the “hugging” point by 6” and wasn’t really worth the extra fiddle. The only house rules I’ve used is upping the SP cost to 5sp, but also kept in a smaller barrage (12 x12”) at 4 SP to represent a 2 tube ...

Re: Advancing in Open Order

In the rules or not, play what looks good. Two inches apart always works for me. The more natural look of the top photo or the Napoleonic battle style of the bottom one. I know which i prefer :roll: https://i.imgur.com/YY4J4sf.jpg https://i.imgur.com/rnmh6Wn.jpg Except with 28mm figures it bears no...

Re: Shabby Nazi Tricks Off Table MG

I use off table MGs and ATGs all the time as a support option for all nationalities. It’s where they should be most of the time.

Re: Are Panzerschrecks too powerful?

I don’t have much of a problem as is. Once late war AFVs have got infantry within 100metres of them they should be vulnerable, and in an infantry game, infantry should be king

Re: Ambush with tank destroyers

I’ve done this an option for a panzerjaeger in a big CoC game. If they chose the pzrjgr as support, the defending Germans had the following deployment options prior to the game. Deploy the AFV in question as normal on a road with a command die roll of 3 OR Deploy as an ambusher as per the ambush rul...
