Re: Hard copy or PDF

When I can, I pretty much prefer a hard copy of the rule book. I like the PDF as a bonus, and it can be useful at times, but hard copies 1) Tends to be more handy [pun intended]. 2) Do not require hardware to use (tablet, iPhone, desktop computer, laptop, and so on.) 3) No batteries required. 4) For...

I finally picked up the Blitzkrieg 1940 book. Something to make a note of is the use of a red die as outlined on page 15.

Re: What scale and suppliers do you prefer?

For Chain of Command, my gaming group likes using 28mm (1;56) scale. Most of my 28mm WW2 collection is plastic, so the figures are from Warlord, Perry Miniatures, Rubicon Models, and Italeri. The great thing about WW2 miniature gaming is that you are not locked into one rule set. You can use your fi...

You're right that Rich is here less often than he would like, but I do check on his behalf at least once a day and alert him to issues, so just shout if there is anything major you need help with and I will pass it on. There's so much traffic, it is sometimes hard to spot the issues so a gentle pro...

Re: Green Troops and 4 Command Dice - A quick and easy solution to balance 6's rolled with 4, 5 or 6 command dice.

Does Richard Clarke check these forums from time to time? I ask because we were hoping to hear from the designer himself about what his thoughts are on using the " Green Troops and Four Command Dice " rule in conjunction with the " Elite Troops and the Sixth Command Dice " rule. From our testing, th...

Re: Green Troops and 4 Command Dice - A quick and easy solution to balance 6's rolled with 4, 5 or 6 command dice.

TT, yes, I agree with you 100%. The modifier links force moral to training and/or experience level. That being said, on many occasions Rich (designer of CoC) has commented after a player rolls Force Morale that this also reflects how motivated or not motivated they are for battle. In short, it all g...

Re: Green Troops and 4 Command Dice - A quick and easy solution to balance 6's rolled with 4, 5 or 6 command dice.

I like what everyone is suggesting - Combat Experience, Level of Training, and Level of Motivation. Lots of rule books incorporate these factors in one form or another. I think CoC pretty much has all this built in as it stands. Motivation is covered by Force Morale, and command dice generally cover...

Re: Green Troops and 4 Command Dice - A quick and easy solution to balance 6's rolled with 4, 5 or 6 command dice.

The rules does state, “The number of Command Dice rolled at the start of each Phase is determined by the quality of the force.” But it does not specify or give details, and as such it could easily apply to both troop quality and leadership quality. The way I see it, the number of command dice is jus...

Re: Green Troops and 4 Command Dice - A quick and easy solution to balance 6's rolled with 4, 5 or 6 command dice.

Looking through the army lists, there are only a couple of lists that limit Green troops to four dice. Majority of the Green troops in the army lists roll five command dice. Maybe the easiest solution here is to allow all Green troops five command dice.
