Re: Dividing Hits

The rule is on page 33, the text on p38 is within a box explaining how the rules work in one example and doesn't state the rule in full. You sometimes need to apply a little common sense and ask yourself what real life situation is being represented on the tabletop. If the rifle team was simply adva...

Re: 4Ground "Raw Models" a review

Correction, all your mates knew you were insane already, this is just further proof. :D
The buildings look really good though so you can have the last laugh.
Will we get to see these in all their glory at Deep Fried Lard?

Re: The blank card?

It's there to let you introduce any scenario specific or other special effect you might want to incorporate into a game.

Re: Another Close Combat question

I'd say that you move so that all your men come into physical contact with the enemy unit who would get extra combat dice because you were daft enough to roll 3 movement dice.
You can't avoid the Close Combat if your movement path brings you within 4" of the enemy.

Re: Russian Support List - Commissars

If you take a look at the CoC FAQ you will find Rich explains that as the role of Commissars changed over the period of the war the rules for them will be included in the relevant Army Lists going forward. In the meantime if you check out page 1 of the CoC FAQ thread you will find a suggestion for t...

Re: Another Close Combat question

Thanks for the clarification Rich. I think we all could see the validity of the point Monty was making, but as you say a line has to be drawn somewhere if rules are to work as intended. I think it is one of the most valuable elements of this Forum, and the Yahoo Group, that we can have these discuss...

Re: Single discrete Infantry Team under fire

Hi Alf, It's yes to both questions, see section 8.3 on page 33 of the rules. The teams do not have to be part of the same section. So this is a good way to help protect your possibly smaller support teams by having some mates in close proximity who can absorb some of the enemy fire. It also stops pl...

Re: Two interesting 'Chain of Command Dice' moments

the enemy and no enemy troops with any hope of getting there in the next phase or two. My rules gaffe has somewhat clouded what was intended to be an "Oooh! Cool!" aspect of the rules representing and rewarding the idea of seizing a fleeting battlefield opportunity and throwing the enemy off balanc...

Re: Another Close Combat question

Hi Richard, Thanks for explaining your logic and as I said before I can see where you are coming from. However, I think you are stretching the logic to breaking point in this case, because I think you are focussing on distance rather than time. I also agree that it can help in visualising the situat...

Re: Lard at Carronade

Yes a very evocative table and young Monty was doing a grand job explaining the rules when I passed by. It says something both for the quality of the rules and that of Monty's teaching that the poor Russian player was still smiling and positively engaged as one of his sections got ripped apart, brok...
