Re: We will build a city!

That is indeed mighty impressive, and clearly a mighty impressive effort! Would love to read an AAR on battles played out in such a setting. Thank you! I'm not convinced I actually want to fight over this. I suspect a full CoC game in this urban mess would end up confined to one street or a couple ...

Re: Question re the negative effect of taking "bad" shots

Using the ADC's to give the Assault Fire effect to the artillery was a no brainer (and very effective) with little downside. There's an opportunity cost to assault fire. If you are using ADCs for this, you cannot use them for other tasks. It's been my experience (albeit in limit number of games) th...

Re: CONCERNS WITH SINGLE-TEAM SQUADS

This just leaves the issue of the well protected LMG in the single-team squad. Related to this is the invalidating of the British doctrine special rule "Concentrated Fire". These issues still concern me. Perhaps we need to designate a 3 or 4 man LMG group within the single-team squad solely for the...

Re: Trotter's greenhouse

Just needs a little sign over the door saying "Trotter's Greenhouse" (probably nailed off kilter) :)

Re: Blitzkrieg 1940: Questions: Pioneer Squads

but I can see the argument for the guys accompanying the flamethrower to do so and obviously the rest of the squad will and so can protect their colleagues. John But it might be easier to think of the "meat shields" as providing the equivalent of covering fire and just let their effectiveness as be...

Re: Flame thrower teams, Close combat

For me, Pioneers doing engineery things should be treated as engineers and Pioneers doing shooty things should be treated as ordinary soldiers. That basically goes for all engineers, sappers, etc. And there's no switching roles during a game so the wire cutting teams don't become rifle teams the mom...

Re: British Parachute Rifle Section.

So pick how many pairs of riflemen you want to use for 2" mortar duty and either leave them attached to their sections (so a section becomes: JL, 3-man Bren team, 4-man rifle team, 2-man 2" mortar team) or attach them to HQ. Hmm, you wouldn't treat it like a panzerfaust and just have it allocated t...

Re: Demoralisation levels

How about every time you lose a skirmish stand, any units contributing to the skirmish screen take a casualty (or two)? So that 85th with 8 casualties goes to 9 (or 10) when the screen loses a stand. Eventually, that unit is going to disperse if the screen keeps losing stands even if it keeps gettin...
