Re: Malaya!

Hi Len. Thanks for the info! Its a very flavourful campaign with each loss being very painful having just the one platoon. Id not played against a IJA platoon and as per the campaign design and echo of the real thing its a shock..... a lot of the conventional CoC wisdom has to be set aside. I've kep...

Re: UHRAAAAH! Russian National Characteristic

Don't forget that the Germans will get 1D6 per D6 of movement, so that could be +4D6 for every Russian unit that manages to get within 4" of the German, possibly also multiplied as well. That charge could really end up being Pyrric despite the piling on. I dunno, It just says 1d6 for each dice of m...

Re: Malaya!

Hi Len Cheers for the reply. I'm waiting to complete the campaign then will do a write up. A few questions from today have come up: 1) Is there a way to voluntarily to replace the original Platoon just before we start game 6? I'm having to call for the new chaps now and even then will barely scrape ...

Re: Bloody Bucket

1) Yes, I assumed that they are using the flanking movement, I don't see any reason you need to process down the road and its not mentioned. 2) No, but I fancied I was on for a draw! Don't send your green troops to do ANYTHING, I think the key to the BB is using support and just use the squads as pa...

Re: More Sniper Questions

I agree!
12" range AP2 limited to 2 per squad or something....

BUT you will get lots of debate over relative values and some should be better etc.

Re: More Sniper Questions

I agree and do thing there is scope for AT rifle grenades, this has been discussed before.

Re: Help with Forward Observers

I asked ages ago if calling in fire counted as 'firing' for the purposes of being spotted as per the advanced building rules with mixed responses. I think the best bet is to deploy them wisely, use tactical and cover where ever possible and buddy them up within 4". Deploying so as to give you LOS to...
