Re: Colonial house for Singapore for Chain of Command

Great work. What did you make your base, garden / compound walls, and wrought iron fence from? CarlL Thanks. The base is cut from MDF and textured with PVA glue and sand. The walls were made from cork floor tiles. The wrought iron fence was part of a set from eBay (model railway scenery - one of th...

Re: Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign

We are back for scenario 2 in the campaign. The Japanese push on towards Singapore. We reach the small village of Buena Vista where the Malay Regiment will conduct a delaying action to try to stall the advance.

Re: SOME GENERIC SPECIAL RULES

I think much also depends on the expected response to the loss of the LMG crew. The rules assume that the squad leader ensures the gun is always operated by someone. In a two team squad the junior leader can spend a CI to assign men from the rifle team, so it’s technically possible to keep the LMG t...

Re: Colonial house for Singapore for Chain of Command

Indeed. Pull out the palm trees and cover the holes with some clump foliage and it will be back in Europe in no time 😉 Or alternatively leave the palm trees and refight the initial "Riviera" days of Operation Dragoon ;) (Lovely work as always!) Now there’s a thought, all we need is for someone to w...

Fab.
Like the idea of having different bases for terrain so you can use it for different areas of the world.

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...
