Re: Possible Anti-Tank Rifle amendments

Part of the problem with getting AT Rifles right is the basic CoC armour model where the side armour protection is essentially a function of the frontal armour. While the frontal armour of the PzIIIs and PzIVs was increased over time, the hull side armour remained constant at about 30mm until the ad...

Re: Do Vehicles count as a Team when trying to win a "Probe" game ?

I think for the vanilla Probe scenario the requirement is to exit a unit off, not specifically a "team". For example, since a Soviet squad doesn't have teams, it would count to win a probe scenario by exiting the table? That seems highly dubious as an interpretation to me. I would exclude uncrewed t...

Re: Advancing in Open Order

If you want to encourage troops to operate in a loser order, the realistic way to achieve the effect would be to change the HE rules so that the effectiveness of HE increases against more tightly packed troops. Either adding additional He dice or perhaps modifyng the number required to get a hit wou...

Re: Vehicle Flame Throwers

For what it's worth, I played the Ustilug campaign with a friend and had great fun with it. we used the support availability table which makes many supports only have a chance for being available depending on how far away they are in the unit organization.

Re: PDF only Infamy, Infamy

Depending on who else in my gaming group is interested in playing it, at least one of us will buy the additional cards and maybe markers, etc. At this point it's worth seeing what level of interest there is inthe rules and for that the pdf will do fine.

OMG! You’re right! I hope they didn’t forget the mules mounted with the 88’s too.
Don't you know anything about ancient German artillery? Those should be 88's mounted on mule drawn carts with full 360 degree filed of fire and that can shoot overhead of all foot troops. ;-)

PDF only Infamy, Infamy

These days I prefer to buy most of my rules as pdf only dueto already owning too many books,rules, etc in hardcopy. IS there any plan to offer a PDF only version of Infamy, Infamy? I didn't see an obvious one in the shop, just the offer to send a pdf with the various pre-order bundles.(Also being in...

Re: Sherman Flail/other mine clearing additions

The easiest solution would be to reach an agreement with your potential opponents for how to cost it on top of the base vehicle cost. 1-2 points would seem reasonable IMHO.

Re: Vehicle questions

I tend to treat the 6" deployment limit for vehicles to the center of the turret/vehicle. Otherwise given the size of 1/48 and 1/56 vehicles, The vehicle size itself is a significant fraction of 6".
