Re: Using Bolt Action lists and points to build CoC forces?

Ooh boy, this is a fun one! Seret's posted some great resources already: between the CoCulator, the Consolidated Arsenal, and I'll add the Big Chain of Command rules (free from here: https://toofatlardies.co.uk/blog/?p=3013 ) you can put together pretty much any force. So to help you out with some s...

Re: Suggestions for US Marine special rules

One curious rule idea, not sure if applicable here: When a Junior Leader uses two or more of their Command Initiatives, they may activate one Team that is not part of their squad. The weapon teams attached to the company appear to have worked very close with the squads. That's a cool idea! It's pro...

Re: Suggestions for US Marine special rules

My thoughts on it in regards to CoC was the emphasis on scouting in a jungle environment, firepower at the squad & platoon level, and the ability of leaders to affect the battle. The first point is naturally present in the existing US National Characteristic. The second point is reflected in the pl...

Re: Fog...not of war, but of visibility

I don't know if a "visibility range" is going to add much to Chain of Command, as the table represents a fairly small area and opposing Jump-Off Points will often be within two average run moves of each other anyway. Perhaps apply a level of cover to anything beyond close range? I grew up on the edg...

Re: Support Section/Squad - Bad Things Happen

We play it as the "Support Unit Killed" roll replaces the "last" Bad Things Happen roll caused for wiping the unit out. So for your examples: 1: A Team from a Support Squad is Wiped Out - Team Wiped Out (as normal) 2: The last Team from a Support Squad is Wiped Out - Support Unit Killed (instead of ...

Re: Hyperthetical Fourth Afghan War, 1924 ish

That sounds like a fun project! Chain of Command suits the Interwar period just fine! The 2014 Winter Special has minor rules modifications for Chain of Command in the Great War era that should suit, as well as 1917 and 1918 British platoons. The Spanish Civil War lists could be used for Bolshevik r...

Re: Suggestions for US Marine special rules

I suspect that given how quickly word spread about Japanese treatment of prisoners, that stubborn would be widespread. Yeah, I'd rate most units (Allied and Japanese) in the island campaigns as Stubborn from 1942 on, because neither retreat nor surrender was really an option. Don't know enough abou...

Re: Suggestions for US Marine special rules

I know this might be heresy in some quarters, but were marine troops really that much more effective than the average grunt? (the aggressive/stubborn thing is quite powerful). I wore the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor for a while and it isn't heresy to me. Stubborn is probably appropriate to reflect the ...
