Not excited about skirmishers

I like the looks of these rules — except for how they model skirmishers. Skirmishers are not just smaller faster crappier formed units. (That's a problem with almost all rule sets.) Fire against skirmishers is much too effective. Even if you assume that skirmishers had a density of 1/10 that of form...

My favorite unit because of the bell bottoms and platform shoes.

Civilian Mob, Barricades, and Street Fighting?

Re: Trying to adapt CoC to the Vietnam Conflict

Lots of discussion of American concerns - not so much for the Vietnamese. The elephant in the room, of course, is that if things are not going well, the US strategy is just to hunker down and wait for support, whole for the VC it's just to fade away and fight another day. Neither of those make for i...

Re: Trying to adapt CoC to the Vietnam Conflict

CoC is not designed for asymmetrical warfare. You might be able to do something with Special Forces attacks, but that's about it.

Re: Panzer II - 1939 List

Re: Fire on forward observers

Then there is no reason to have them on the board at all. Just replace them with a die roll.

Re: Fire on forward observers

I assume they could always be in Tactical mode, but it seems to me that targetting them could be abused.
