Re: Recce Troop

One thought on this and it’s something I’ve been meaning to ask the Lardies ever since I saw reports of Nick’s recce scenario. Would you play the deployment restriction of one vehicle per phase or would you give this type of unit an exception? I can’t imagine in Nick’s airborne recce scenario this ...

Re: Armoured vehicle forced off table

One simple solution to this involves the 6” deployment rule for vehicles.A regular vehicle deploys within 6” of the entry point. What does that actually mean? 6” in? What if you have , say, a Churchill that’s more than 6” long? If you deploy so the REAR of the vehicle is 6” on table, then the forced...

Re: Forests vs Orchards

The way I’ve played orchards in spring/summer: Don’t block LOS for troops on the ground within the orchard, but everywhere in orchards is light cover. Troops in vehicles can only see 12”( turret is at foliage level) Troops on higher levels can’t see into orchards period. I tend to cheat a little and...

Re: A Couple of Questions re Covering Fire

1: Yes.
2: section 4.5.4 the covering fire is linked to the terrain, so if the unit moved out of the area under covering fire it could fire without the minus but if it didn’t manage to it would take the minus...Difficult with only a D6 of movement. Not impossible, but unlikely.

Re: Feedback wanted: Introductory campaign set during Battle of the Bulge

There are a set of very detailed maps in existence for the Ardennes (made in 1947) which I accessed years ago through the royal geographic society in London. We used about 10 of them for a campaign A friend of mine may still have copies of them I think they were at least 1:25000 -very detailed

Re: Any Big CoC campaigns?

I’ve run lots of multi player Big CoC as 3 or 4 linked games overa weekend. dbsubashi makes some good points - one thing we always have is an umpire (me, normally), and this obviates a lot of potential issues, you can keep the game moving and the players focused, I think it could be that because the...
