The minefields. barbed wire, etc. are already there it is the patrol phase that finds them so they have to be put out AFTER the patrol phase. Dick Bryant

Re: Bloody Bucket patrol phases

As I understand it, if the scenario in a mini campaign doesn't tell you to use the set up in the rule book but substitutes its own - then you use the set up of the campaign. So only the US gets the 1/2 D6 move the Germans get NONE.

Re: Pint-sized campaigns with 4 players?

We routinely play 3/side games that are not Big CoC games. I run them at conventions as well. I see no reason why it couldn't work for a campaign. Each side has a commander who plans out the mission and assigns tasks to himself and his 'subordinates'. He assigns the forces and supports to each playe...

BLOODY BUCKET

Setting Up The Campaign (BLOODY BUCKET) "The US Player will have 6 platoons, one on each map!" OK. So my platoon on Map 2 lost as my opponent was able to probe the position behind me (which, by the way, was in a direction off to the NW -assuming the top of the map is N-near the single red house on t...

20mm JOPs

I need to replace lost or stolen JOPs (too many participation games at conventions) and would like more of what I had been using. These wee bought in 2014 or 2015 and had several versions! I have searched everywhere! - well not everywhere as I couldn't find them. Any suggestions would be greatly app...

Covering Fire

Covering fire markers are placed on terrain, not on troops according to the rules. My troops were in a building that was under covering fire - the covering fire markers were up against the building. The troops ran out of the building toward the enemy but well outside the placement of the covering fi...

Re: What are you modelling?

Both the figures and the terrain. Any items needed to keep track of the situation should look like part of the terrain too or so hard to see that one has to know where to look. Absolutely refuse to play with unpainted and unterrained bases but stop short of not using British troops with Belgic shako...

Re: How do you indicate special individual weapons?

I use small colored beads on the stands from arms length they are not visible bur are when close up. I use a larger stand for officers but the ranking and weapon are still indicated. Engineers use hexagonal stands. I use 20mm figures.
