Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 15 02 19)

Ahh righto. I have often thought we need a mousehole rule to allow troops that start deployed in a building on a defensive mission to mousehole a certain number of blank walls. It was quite common tactic even in 1940 and it took a short time with a pickaxe and crowbar to do - though not in a Norman ...

Re: Early War Handbook Queries

Yeah no worries I do not think it is a game breaker and it makes sense, I am just curious as to if there was a reason for only having teams as support choices? After all it is the only options (apart from Engineering teams and even they get the full section option) that give you a team without the c...

Re: CONCERNS WITH SINGLE-TEAM SQUADS

Ahhh OK I understand but then surely you have to make an artificial team allocation up? And as you said you would then have to allow transfers all to give a slightly higher chance of killing an LMG. I think it would be simpler to say every kill as well as having a chance of killing an officer could ...

Re: Westwind Königsberg CoC campaign (updated 15 02 19)

Good point Munin I was actually thinking about that when I was reading the AAR wondering why Dave was moving the gun so much.

I would like to see shock doubled or something for an HE hit into an enclosed space like a building or such?

Otherwise you are far better off with another squad than an IG.

Re: CONCERNS WITH SINGLE-TEAM SQUADS

John, You don't dice separately for moving both teams in a section on the same activation. They move together. What Jim is saying is that Shock is always applied to Teams so each team's movement is reduced by 5" in the example quoted not 10" as suggested. That makes 2 team squads more mobile. Len, ...

Re: White gloves worn by Japanese infantrymen.

Ahh I see the officers I could maybe understand but the othera are rather odd.

Re: Walking a Smoke Barrage!

Never heard of walking a smoke barrage in real life.

Have you got an example of one?

More likely they will drift with the wind and not in the direction you want.
