Wounded leader markers for CoC

For some reason I'm determined to find the perfect solution for marking wounded leaders in my games. Those of you that know me or have followed the blog will know I have become borderline obsessive about this. Then again maybe I just like making stuff. Anyhow I think I've found a solution that is bo...

Re: Resistance / Partisans

I’ve given this some thought and it seems you can break down Partisan actions during the war into two main types. The first is what you might see in Western Europe and which is mainly about raids, assassination and sabotage. The second is that conducted by larger bodies organised along military line...

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign (updated 07 12 20)

Thanks, glad everyone enjoyed it. If nothing else it shows you can pack a good narrative in a four map campaign. I like the way there was a good variety in each scenario, it’s easy to think of a Far East campaign being about jungle, jungle and more jungle, but Mark B did a good job mixing things up ...

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign (updated 21 11 20)

The Japanese make a second attempt to take the Opium Factory, this is probably going to be their last chance. Failure will hand the doughty men of the Malay Regiment a campaign victory so we have everything to play for. The first Japanese attack ended rather badly, can they fare better this time? Fu...

Re: SCATTER TERRAIN # 9 CLOTHES LINES and HAY STACKS.

A friend and I were gaming recently and I was admiring some of his terrain, especially the attention to detail on his building interiors, and he said to me that sometimes he thinks what we do has more in common with dolls’ houses than wargaming. I think he’s right. That said, some lovely work there ...

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign (updated 21 11 20)

To get a sense of topography it is worth going in to Google maps and look up Pasir Panjang pillbox (it is still there), then do a street view from the pillbox (which can be hard to spot, it's surrounded by a green fence), despite modern development its easy to see how flat the surrounding area is an...

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign (updated 21 11 20)

I'd be inclined to avoid reading those maps too literally, they were created by the WSS artist for the magazine and you should allow for some artistic licence. I've been in touch with Mark Backhouse both prior and during the campaign and he's been following all the AARs and at no point has he mentio...
