Re: Blinds in difficult terrain

I think it's duplication.

You could give a Blind in Indian File a double bonus (i.e. -2 penalty off each dice rolled for movement) if you felt that you wanted to differentiate a normal and an IF Blind properly.

The September War #01: Chojnice

Re: Basing figures

My advice would be to minimise the amount of bases you have per squad. Most of my figures (15mm) are based individually as I like casualty removal and to have the figures conform to the terrain they are in. They look really good, but are a real pain to move around, especially in the heat of battle. ...

Re: IABSM handbooks - any use to CoC players?

I think they are marvellous, incredibly useful for CoC, and could only be improved by the addition of a cover-mounted bacon sandwich! But seriously, they are designed to be complementary, with Big Rich and I often sharing our research. As IABSM models a platoon without necessarily including every me...
