Re: Selecting British Airborne Section with 2 LMGs from Support list?

It just be me being a grumpy old man (or pre-operation anxiety becoming manifest, as I go under the knife yet again tomorrow), but I'm finding this whole conversation appearing gamier and gamer every time I return to it. I'm running US Armored at MOAB in a bit over two weeks' time, and I will defini...

NCOs in Colonial units in most armies were bi-lingual (in Australian units this would be English and Profanity).

But if your leaning out of a window it may be a bit hard to drop it at your own feet. :D
You've never met TT in real life, huh? ;) He has a talent for making the seemingly impossible possible.

Re: How do you attack in this game?

My level of tactical acumen is considerably less than many of those who have already engaged you here, but my one minor contribution to the conversation is to highlight the use of patience and feints. As has been already noted, your opponent deployed a lot of static elements on his left flank, which...

Re: Flame Throwers and Intervening Cover

So it has to be fired in a much higher arc. So the wall's not likely to get in the way. And even if it does, a jet of fuel burning at around 1000 degrees C passing inches overhead, shedding droplets of burning fuel onto you and sucking all oxygen out of the air is likely to lead to all sorts of med...

Re: Help with Forward Observers

I do not play it that enemy figures block LOS only friendly ones. Yes. I have noted in Bolt Action that figures are used as cover but I have never done that either in CoC. Yes. If you can see the FOO you can shoot him. Nothing says you have to shoot the closest enemy. Absolutely. The tendency towar...

Re: Help me decide my next platoon

I am just going to start the Soviets with some basic infantry.... I won't be using Black Tree unless I pick some up second-hand, as the last order took 6 months for the bulk of it to arrive, and nine months later, I still haven't received the complete order. I can relate to this. I have an order wi...

Re: Minefield deployment

I think "hahaha, we booby-trapped the hell out of that house/barn/ruin so those tossers couldn't use it as a base of fire" is totally fair game. Keep in mind that minefields and wire are both a) quite small, and b) limited in the number you can take. If you require them to be put on the table prior...
