Fab.
Like the idea of having different bases for terrain so you can use it for different areas of the world.
Indeed. Pull out the palm trees and cover the holes with some
clump foliage and it will be back in Europe in no time 😉

Colonial house for Singapore for Chain of Command

I'm playing a Chain of Command campaign set in Singapore in 20mm and need to represent a house belonging to a rubber plantation owner. I have one of the 20mm Sarissa colonial houses and I've done some work on that to make it suitable for the Far East. You can see how I did those modifications in a l...

Re: Japanese purchases for lists for 1943-onward?

The basic IJA infantry regiment structure remained much the same throughout the war. You are looking at a four squad platoon, with three rifle squads and one grenade discharger squad. As the war progressed and casualties were not replaced men were often re-assigned from the grenade discharger squad ...

Re: Convoy to Kotelnikovo (CoC)

I've looked at Winter Storm and the first sub-campaign looks very good and workable. I think the second involved mainly tanks and seemed much less interesting as CoC is not much of a tank game. The third had T-34s on autopilot driving up and down streets which seemed weird to say the least. The kit...

Re: The Falaise Pocket: a Chain of Command Solo AAR

Here’s a comparison of the same Gembloux Gap tables in 20mm and 28mm. Note how the wheat fields and open spaces differ in size. In the TFL videos Rich’s Germans crossed these in a single phase of movement (although in one case he went at the double which shouldn’t be allowed on broken ground but hey...

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign

I haven’t seen the new EWM figures to make the comparison. I’m not a big fan of EWM figures as a rule. That said the quality is improving and so I wouldn’t want to be too hasty judging the new figures. Generally they match up with AB in terms of size but are a long way off in quality.

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign

Yes, Rich is working on the Far East Handbook at the moment. It’s turned into a bigger task than expected as he’s been trying to dig up information on the less well known allied units like the African regiments. Not sure when it’s due but probably not this side of Christmas (but I could be wrong). O...

Thoroughly enjoyable.
Defending against a probe on a wide table is a hard ask.
Indeed, even more so when it’s the Japanese using Jungle Fighters and a Ruse. Blink and they are on top of you.
