Re: Hard copy or PDF

Played for a year with just a PDF...no problem, but, one day I decided I wanted a copy...love them both. The search facility on the PDF is extremely useful

Re: We will build a city!

That is a fabulous looking array of buildings, even if you don’t fight over it in its entirety at least you now have all your options covered. In a recent big CoC mini-campaign I set up one of the scenarios to be a push into the outskirts of a town- so not quite as complete or dense as the set up yo...

Re: Barbarossa eye candy

If it is these style of fields you mean, then yes, they are dead simple: https://ibb.co/album/gPtfgF Just pieces of 2mm MDF, cut to size, edges chamfered with a block plane. Sealed and balanced with weak PVA. Then a mix of equal parts bitter Chocolate exterior paint, PVA and sawdust. Mixed up to a t...

Re: What scale and suppliers do you prefer?

I have lots of both 20’s and 28s! (Why is a long story). I think you need to be very picky with Britannia figures in 20mm and west wind in 28mm, and some metal figures from Warlord. Some of these figures are fine, some are less so. 1st Corps 28s I won’t bother with. Milicast are indeed 1/72, and are...

Re: Sensible (armour) platoons in Big CoC?

We have been playing it that the infantry are affected by tank losses from tank platoons, with the caveat that the infantry platoon has to see the relevant AFV copping it. Bear in mind this tends to be in large games (3 inf/1 tank platoon) and on a large-ish table (normally 9 or 12 x6). Also, we hav...

Re: Sensible (armour) platoons in Big CoC?

Other than the roll for friendly platoon going away, how does the loss of tanks and their leaders affect the infantry platoons? We usually forget/don't use the BTH roll for losing friendly platoons anyway... Friendly platoons should test each time an AFV is lost from the armoured platoon and when/i...

Re: FAQ/Errata Question re grenades

Ummmm
I don’t think so.
I always read it as 3 in total, be they smoke or fragmentation
Hence in the 1940 supplement German pioneers are specifically given 3 frag and 3 smoke as an exception. If it were normally 3 of each for all units why mention it otherwise?
