Re: Shabby Nazi Tricks

Civilians and Nuns with Guns are very useful when attacking to force the defender to deploy to deal with them at little risk to your troops. I usually bluff with them personally, but mixing in a concealed infantry team now and again will keep your opponents guessing. The figures are also reusable fo...

Re: Gegbirgsjäger/Highlanders

One of the video batreps I watched used a piper to represent the "Drinks Cabinet" support choice from the 1940 Handbook.

Re: How do you attack in this game?

What are the general approaches to wheat? Do they block LOS after a distance or just provide cover regardless of distance? The PSC I have seemed to suggest the latter so that's what we played. TT, yes, as I said we decided that the visibility in the orchards per RAW didn't appear to reflect our own...

If you're eyeing Italians consider Gaddis Gaming as well, they have a nice selection of poses.

Re: DO WE HAVE A SMOKE PROBLEM?

I believe the one time we had an assault go into a smoke cloud, we treated the defenders as being in light cover because of it. Usually it's used to isolate the target from other supporting units instead.

Re: Effect of Hand Grenades on troops in hard cover.

I was under the impression that the hits caused by thrown grenades rolled for effect as if the defender was in the open, regardless of the level of cover they would have had against other shooting.

Re: Many Rivers to Cross - Stuka Support Question

Hmm...I'm playing through it right now but haven't taken that option. I could see you applying all, some, or none of the effect. The Stukas can't be destroyed, obviously, but the pre-game barrage effect does end at the end of a Game Turn, so unless the Game Turn never ended in your first game I'd sk...

Re: A few CoC queries - mostly Early War

Welcome! After a Big Coc game we played this weekend, I'd been musing over incorporating an armored platoon into the next one, and had a similar thought to your "move on a 1" idea. I think keeping the activation of vehicles attached to an infantry platoon restricted is a good idea for the standard g...

Re: Anomalies when apportioning casualties to LMGs and Leaders

If there are more casualty results than remaining non-leader figures (situation #3), I skip the roll to see if a leader was hit and just apply the leftovers to leaders (randomly, if there is more than one), rolling for the level of wound for each as normal. If there are multiple leaders with a unit ...
