Re: Lion Rampant

Lion Rampant and Dragon Rampant are okay. They're not the slightest bit highbrow or anything but then: the author doesn't make any such claim. They're just a fun medieval miniatures game and provide a good excuse to put your figures on the table with some nice terrain.

Re: First CoC for 2020

The rules state "Only Leaders may instruct a Team or Section to put down Covering Fire" ... since the tank crew is neither a Team nor a Section it seems to me that covering fire is not possible. Play the period. I’m pretty sure this has been discussed here and elsewhere. Forget the precise wording,...

First CoC for 2020

We had a bit of a hiatus over the Festive Season and, because of some wargaming detours during the start of 2020, we've only just managed to get a game in over the past weekend. We had a platoon of fresh faced GI's against some hardened veterans of the HG Division ( which I finished painting towards...

Re: My first go at Sharp Practice

That was a phenomenal number of random events in a single game. Can I ask if you were using cards or chips for activation. One of the drawbacks of using cards is the difficulty of getting a truly random shuffle which means that cards can remain in sequence over Turn Ends. John Chips. Although I'm n...

My first go at Sharp Practice

I took the time to do a massive re-basing project. A Napoleonic French division and A Prussian brigade(+). Now that the glue has dried and the mdf has been flocked I got to put the troops on the table on their first SP outing. I really enjoyed the game and look forward to many more. Please have a re...

Very nice table. What is the mat?
Hi Milo, The basic mat is a cheap grey fleece blanket painted with acrylic paints (using a big house painting brush). The other pieces are teddy bear fur, trimmed and painted in the same manner.

Re: 29 Let's Go! Video Series- updated- Game 3- Delaying Action at Arthenay

Great videos. They are very inspiring for our planned PSC next year. But... You've gotta remember to re-roll those 1's with the M1. You're cheating yourself out of dozens of potential hits every game.

Ville de Montagne - Tommy Brings it On!

Another game of CoC - I still haven't played as many games as I'd like but I'm getting more under my belt and getting to better know the rules. Slowly but surely, we're getting there. This is a basic scenario I wrote up for a club game today in Melbourne. Please have a look and a read on my blog at:...

Here Come the Dogfaces - An AAR

Another game of COC. I'm still new at it but this is my 4th game now. Another very enjoyable game this time with US Rifle Platoon v's German Infantry, somewhere in France. The first time on the table for my new US troops & I also got to use my nice new table mat that I made just the day before, too....
