Re: Close assault question, Operation Martlet

TT, Yes a section can be split by terrain. But in the examples above that might not be the case. In these examples the teams are within 4" so they can support each other when considering shock + the JL can command them both (ordering either to move/respond etc). Your assertion that a path only appli...

Re: Close assault question, Operation Martlet

Hi all, I think this is another case of balancing what is said in different parts of the rules. In this case the differences are on P 59 of the rules. Firstly it says: "Close Combat happens when one infantry force moves to within 4” of an enemy which it can see and to which it has a clear path. Troo...

Re: Calculating Casualties within At The Sharp End

Thanks guys for the responses. It seems that Seret's idea of applying FM reductions proportionally might work best. Archdukek's guidance on support casualties and Men's Opinion should not be too hard to apply. Cos as noted by MLB we do need to keep this simple. My example is not that extreme, as I u...

Re: Calculating Casualties within At The Sharp End

However, a number of us take the view that while that may be the case for most support units, you should treat taking casualties to a supporting infantry section differently and count casualties to it when assessing the impact on the Men's Opinion. I kinda like this myself. For the same reasons. An...

Re: Calculating Casualties within At The Sharp End

I've encountered the same conundrum. We treated support as separate in our campaign, but it opens the door to pretty gamey BS in my opinion. Thanks Gaff ... I feel that most players within the "Lardiesphere" would be playing this in the right spirit. Which is why I am keen to hear how it is being d...

Calculating Casualties within At The Sharp End

I am wondering what is "Best Practice" in dealing with casualties with At The Sharp end (ATSE). There are a couple of ways to approach the calculation of casualties as part of the post game tracking. This starts at end of your game when you need to declare how many men you have lost “Killed”. Winner...

Re: HE vs Buildings

Seret, I agree with you that the main tactical considerations within CoC for buildings are the fields of fire from windows and how to access the buildings. However, by treating each building differently (as modelled) does NOT diminish the role of HE in reducing them to rubble as you suggested. What ...

Re: HE vs Buildings

Hi all, Here is my 2 cents worth. Though I can understand why people would say treat these buildings as single structures (easy of play, scale etc). I would like to suggest that is NOT necessary. One of the interesting features within CoC is overcoming the tactical problems sent to us as players. Wh...

Re: number of units deploying from JOP in1 Phase?

John, I would agree with the others on the limits for Infantry coming onto the table. Space and Dice would be the main limiter. However, it seems vehicles might be different. See p51 of the rules. There are two parts that are relevant in 11.5. HOW DO I DEPLOY VEHICLES ONTO THE TABLE? * Where a singl...
