Re: Movement and Linear Obstacles

I agree with Chris - I would think it quite reasonable that those over would hold or move only so far as to maintain the cohesion of the unit.

Re: Leaders on campaign

Good suggestion John - it was more about having a mix of regular and conscript, and the 2 groups of Voltigeurs in Line would do that nicely! Thanks for feedback.

Leaders on campaign

When describing a force for a campaign, is it OK to list multiple leaders across multiple units (eg. as per the colour coding below), and allow the player to determine which leaders will lead which units when it comes to specific actions? Capitaine Valéry Batteux, Status III [Senior Commander] Lt. C...

Re: Interrupts

Can you use command cards to interrupt your own activation, for example to activate a unit to move it out of the way of the one you are activating next on a commanders card? I think the answer is YES, though it's probably not an "interrupt" as such (which I think only applies to an opponent's activ...

Re: SP/ECW folk horror

You might want to think about using some of the fractious Puritan splinter religious groups who often had some extreme religious beliefs that spilled into radical politics too, and attributed some diabolical characteristics to their opponents (mostly linked to the Antichrist). Groups like the Fifth ...

Re: SP AWI Escort Duty AAR

Really enjoyable account. Its always remarkable when one of your smaller skirmish units does the tough work while the larger unit that you felt would be your champion ends up a bit of a shambles. Its a fairly common experience in my wargaming :?

Re: To the Viktor Line - Campaign

What sources did you use for picking the table terrain? Or was that creative license? I always have fun trying to match AARs to historical maps and then to current maps. I used the GSGS 1:50000 series Larino map and that allowed me to piece together a likely or at least plausible British route up t...

Re: Do I need a Dremel?

The common binding resin in MDF has definitely been classified in the UK and EU as a carcinogen, and wood dust has also been classified as a health risk. The following link provides handy information and tips on safer use: http://www.hse.gov.uk/woodworking/faq-mdf.htm

Re: Is moving not really an option in CoC?

I can absolutely attest to the "what not to do's" noted above, that are very much what a less experienced player tends to do (and I put myself in that boat), but I'd also encourage new players to read some of the AARs to get a sense of both how an attacker can use movement to their advantage, but li...
