Re: Any Big CoC campaigns?

My group has played a lot of multiplayer games. We use Big CoC as a basis, but have made a few changes, mainly to speed game play, and keep all the players involved. Here’s what we do: A. Ban Preliminary Bombardment. If both sides take it, the first hour of your game will slow to a crawl. B. Only th...

Re: Do any Pint-Sized Campaigns contain lists with STG44s?

WSS Magazine-3 new campaigns!

The latest issue, Issue 100 of Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy has 3 campaigns for fallschirmjagers using CoC, and a 4th scenario easily adapted. Crete, Norway and Monte Cassino. The 4th is late war, using Battlegroup rules, would make for a good Big CoC game. Well worth a look!

Re: Random thought/s on close combat

On a different tack, grenading that officer may have been better. You don’t have to see your target to chuck grenades at them. You could stay out of sight and toss them in. Of course, he might toss some back!

Re: AP against Bunkers

This somewhat depends upon your definition of a bunker. I am doing research on D-Day in preparation of gaming parts for the upcoming 75th anniversary. Most of the D-Day bunkers were classed as type B, with walls and roofs 2 meters thick. They were engineered to withstand the naval guns, so any AP fr...

Re: New guy with a squad strength (dice) question

Never get in static fire fight with any opponent. It is a waste of your men and of your abilities. Many have already posted British tactics already. If you are using Americans, you have to make the most use of American special abilities and weaponry. The Americans have superior movement capabilities...
