Usually the gunner is responsible for firing the turret MG and the main gun, so I'd allow firing one or the other in a phase but not both. Essentially, you can activate a position only once per phase so you can activate the gunner to fire the main gun or you can activate him to fire the coaxial MG. ...

Re: Brigade skirmish screen stands for Reservists battalions?

Re: Ongoing Rule Clarification Thread

Personally, I'd rate it like any other vehicle MG: 6D6.

If you know a vehicle has a certain weapon, and your opponent is agreeable, I don't see any problem with overriding the arsenal.

Re: Help Painting late WW2 tanks.

US vehicles are pretty much universally olive drab, but note that with different batches and with exposure, the actual colour could vary a bit. Add in layers of dust and dirt, and you have some opportunity to change from vehicle to vehicle. No camo scheme except that there are a few pix showing blac...

Re: Prussian oob hundred days

Plus after a long hard march, they probably wouldn't quite the same headcount as they started out with in the morning (or whenever the last headcount occurred).

Re: Dealing with Spam

Ugh, the spamming seems to be getting worse. It might be worth getting a few more moderators to zap the spam and ban the posters. I'm happy to volunteer as a West Coaster in North America.

Re: MMG's on a Truck

While there is a commander of the gun team, he might not be a JL in CoC terms (and I'd be inclined to say no, similar to MMGs don't have JLs).

Re: Learning and discovering: scales question

Time scale and distance scale are useful tools to help ground any set of rules with reality, but a game really needs to feel right and play well.
