Re: Japanese Minis

The ground scale works well with 15mm figures and a lot depends what size your existing scenery is - it’s why I went with 15mm for my 1940 East Africa project, as a lot of my Sudan stuff was reusable. On the other hand, you don’t need that much armour for the typical game of CoC, so go with whicheve...

Re: Stuka Shock

The Shock does have a much greater effect on small teams, like the BEF, rather than larger ones (eg, French, Belgian or Poles), which does seem irrational.

Re: 1/72 French minis for 1940 campaign — recommendations?

contrarius, I’ve not got any of the Lancer French (yet!) but the Brits I have are quite compatible with Blitz, probably a bit ‘chunkier’ but I’m not so worried about minor differences in size/bulk.

Re: 1/72 French minis for 1940 campaign — recommendations?

Again, don’t know whether they will be large enough for you, but both Battlefield Miniatures (in their Blitz Range) and Lancer Miniatures offer 20mm French 1940 figures.

Re: French Dromedary Corps - Egypt

As John suggests, better to treat them as Dismounted infantry from the start of the game and just use the camels as part of the deployment point. If you really want to treat them more like Dragoons, able to move mounted on the table, they should be severely penalised in Fisticuffs if caught mounted ...

Re: Just started playing Sharp Practice

Mfarl, Agree with you on the change to BTH for the Natives. Need to give some thoughts on how to represent Counting Coup though my understanding is that it was much less prevalent during the 1870’s, as the Natives’ attitude towards warfare changed in response to that of the US forces? Why do you sug...

Re: SP “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon” time

Baron, Munin, much appreciated - wherever possible I want to make any rule tweaks consistent with existing TFL mechanisms and these definitely are. You may have seen my suggestions for ‘Skirmish Trained’ as a new unit characteristic for Line Infantry during the 1865-95 period, in my article in the 2...

Re: SP “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon” time

Interesting thought, Captain Reid. On reflection, I think allowing most infantry and dismounted cavalry to be treated as Skirmish Troops will, with a few tweaks, adequately reflect the tactics and use of cover you describe. I’ve already drafted some rules for MGs (published in the 2019 Special) and ...
