Non units on blinds

I get that while on a blind a platoon is under control and that the Big Men probably have little to do. But what if I have a forward observer on a blind, or to further complicate things is hidden. I can spot from a blind without revealing myself, but I can I request fire without being on table? (I'm...

Re: CDS Questions

Hi, thanks a lot for the detailed response. When I said the forum, I meant this area specifically. Clearly the newer rulesets are popular! From what you wrote, I'm clear on pretty much everything except a couple of issues around blinds and "spotted". Does a fire marker mean a unit is spotted or not?...

Re: CDS Questions

Thanks John. I had another go at posting on the Yahoo group and it seems to not have swallowed it this time. I hate Yahoo groups because they're so flaky and not very user friendly but there seems to be a large number of participants there that aren't here! Thanks for the pointer. My CDS was dated 2...

CDS Questions

Posting here in more hope than expectation given this forum seems dead. Tried posting to the Yahoo group but I can't see it despite it saying it had posted...? Last night we played our first Charlie Don’t Surf having played a bit of IABSM v3 and I was struck by some of the differences. (Some of thos...

Re: Covering Fire and Terrain

Agreed. I'd actually suggest that covering fire is a higher volume of fire overall than actually shooting and is definitely over a longer period.

Re: 20mm basing help

I tend to stick my 20mm figs to a penny with superglue, paint the figure, then liberally paint PVA on the coin to the height of the base, place coin in a tub of sand then sprinkle sand onto paint. Leave for a couple of minutes and then pick out, and leave to dry. Occasionally they need two coats of ...

Palm trees for sale

I have around 140 palm trees for sale. Suit 6/10/15mm ideally but I use them mixed in with others for 28mm without them looking too out of place. They're not exactly this type, but extremely close. If I can I will link to some images of them in use in my games, unfortunately it seems my website is d...

FNG and some questions

Having played a fair bit of Vietnam in 28mm at a skirmish level I've finally got enough troops to do some 15mm CDS. I'm looking through to rules in preparation for a introductory game and have some questions. 1) Since I don't have any civilians or buildings in scale yet I'm thinking of running a sma...

Re: Dead?

Ok. I see how you're doing it. I'm not sure I agree tho. 6 casualties = 3 "dead" on the table. We can all agree on that as does 3 casualties = 1 "dead" for the platoon. Ok. But then that means 3 casualties = 2 "dead" for the support section. I don't think you should be looking at the table more than...
