Re: Close combat issues (13.1 + 13.1.2)

KISS Principles should always be applied. That, and the concept of playing the period rather than the rules.

Re: Random thought/s on close combat

As the rules stand the only time you get one side breaking off without a bloodbath is when this applies - pretty rare Total up the number of dice to be rolled by each side. If one side has four or more times as many dice as their opponent, then the side with fewer dice Routs immediately. You've obv...

I posted it on Facebook. RAF Ground vehicles in the Far East were generally overpainted SCC 13 "Jungle Green" a dark drab green darker- than US Olive Drab.
Yup. Andy spoke, I followed his suggestion. (Many thanks, mate.)

Re: RAF Ground Support Vehicle Camo Schemes?

When are we going to see piccies of this airfield to inspire us? You will be disappointed, and definitely not inspired. Remember how everything balances out in this life? Well I am the inverse/ counter balance in terms of talent and vision of John Bond. ;) I still have 3 planes, 7 buildings & lots ...

Re: RAF Ground Support Vehicle Camo Schemes?

Someone somewhere (and I think it was Seret on Facebook) suggested that the best colour would be Brown Violet with a wash, which was done just shy of two weeks ago. But thanks for all the input here - it is still greatly appreciated.

Re: close combat question again

OK John. The confusion arose when MLB asked "Where does the 4” jungle line of sight come from? In the Malaya campaign it’s much longer than that, is this something specific for Cancon?", and you replied, "No Mark". The implication was that this is not a Cancon specific rule, whereas it is (and the p...

Re: Including teams as targets.

How it is done now or in recent memory is not how it was done in WWII, especially given the truncated training periods introduced shortly after it started. CLAP was something you caught and GRIT was what got in your boot. ;) Excellent post. CLAP was something you caught when you thought that the on...

Re: Far East, Far East? Jungle terrain? Oddcast perk up

"Jungle, jungle, jungle" is a myth. While there is undoubtedly quite a bit, most fights "in a jungle" were actually done in the clearings inevitably found throughout such areas, and a lot of the major battles in Burma were fought out in the "dry zone" which occupies the middle third of Myanmar, and ...
