Re: CoC 3D - looking for ideas.

... you can create ridge lines by placing fabric under a game cloth.
You can also create undulations/ridge lines on the table by putting pipe cleaners (either under or over the surface) on the table. They serve as definitive markers for where a cover or hulldown condition may exist.

Re: CoC compared to Crossfire

Like others, I do both - 15mm CoC and 6mm CF. They scratch different command/battle itches, so I don't see them as competing with each other. I also have IABSM, and have only held off play due to basing...stupid, admittedly, but that's where I sit (in my 50-deg F cellar) where I'm concentrating on g...

Re: Aircraft Record Sheets

If table space for the sheets may be an issue, consider printing a player's two sheets back-to-back (or just cut/fold) and slip into a 5x7 sheet protector -that's what I do with my aircombat sheets (same grease pencil use).

Re: Interupt Stalemates

It's possible to keep the number of CoC dice available to each side hidden by rolling command dice out of view of one's opponent (and, obviously, keeping the tracking of 5s rolled hidden as well...). Of course, wondering/worrying about what an opponent has 'up his sleeve' still exists, but it isn't ...

Re: Official sized jumpoff markers

" I'd love to see it at one end of the table..."

...and then see it moved 18" on a CoC die!

8th Army in Italy book recommendation

As the title says. Looking for suggestions on general history of campaign.
Nothing too basic ("The war in 24 pages") but not just about a single battle or unit - I'll get to those after I've learned the overall picture.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Casualty removal

Spin: Having the target/defending player pick may reflect the importance of the weapon rather than the man? If the LMG is critical, then a rifleman would drop his weapon and man the LMG? Same with SMG or rifle? I suppose a pause could be imposed (an acitvation to re-man?) but I don't interpret the t...

Re: 29 Let's Go Question

Remember the winner gets the difference in force morale back before casualties are calculated. So if the Americans wait until their force morale is 0, the Germans may get more men back immediately for the next game. The American has to be sure of killing more Germans than they lose themselves after...
