Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign (updated 13 11 20)

We now reach the final map of the campaign and a last ditch defence around the opium factory that gives the hill its name. While it may be backs-to-the-wall for the Malay Regiment this attack will be no pushover for the Japanese who have a lot to do. Quite a game in the end and you can read the full...

Re: Kirkenes Petsamo CoC game

It was so nice to get an in person game in. Jess and I played a CoC game on his back deck with my 15mm stuff. It was a Probe game set in the Kirkenes Petsamo campaign of 1944. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and weather likely turning, it will probably be the last game there this year. Anyone el...

Here we go again. The Japanese return to Map 3 after being rebuffed in no uncertain terms by the doughty Malays in the last game. The full AAR is here: https://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com ... 3-one.html

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign (updated 6 11 20)

Loving these AARs as much as all the others, but particularly poignant for me as my grandfather was captured by the Japanese in the campaign and did not survive the war. (Luckily for me, my mum, gran and aunt were safe in Australia.) Many thanks and keep up the fantastic work. Thanks for sharing th...

Re: Converting the Bremen PSC for US Forces

Sounds fine to me. In our experience the Kangaroos are too costly as supports anyway, there are more useful supports to call on. At CoC ranges and given the numbers of panzerfaust and panzerschreck you are not wanting to get too close with these, there’s too much to lose. The British found the 2” mo...

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign (updated 1 11 20)

The Japanese continue their drive on Singapore but now reach a tough defensive position held by the Malay Regiment for scenario 3. Is this where their offensive will stall, or can they push on through? Another gripping game in what is turning into a very enjoyable campaign, the full AAR is here: htt...

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign (updated 1 11 20)

Great report and unfolding narrative, and love the way your figures and images reflect key elements of the story as it develops - eg. that shot of your CO rushing across to the fork in the road to direct your right flank - he really looks like he is encouraging them on! The casualty figs are also a...
