Re: 20mm German SS Oakleaf - Opinions sought

They're nice figures in the picture but look more like Autumn to me. Far too orange a look for the summer oakleaf.

20mm German SS Oakleaf - Opinions sought

Looking for some opinions on whether these look OK. 20mm Xan miniatures bought through Empress. I'm trying to do Summer Oakleaf as the majority of the time these will be used they'll be in Normandy I think (need to work through both the Martlet and Scottish Corridor PSC), but I'm just not convinced....

Re: How do you attack in this game?

Thanks Seret. Interesting that you'd attack through the wheat field - I was concerned about going that way and getting carved up. However it would likely have been no worse than going through the hedges and orchards given the cover is the same (although in reality I'd rather have the chance of a tre...

Re: How do you attack in this game?

I deployed into the orchard. His troops in the entrenchment and the building shot me. (We had made the ruling that you could see 12" into or in orchards. They don't generally have a fringe of underbush at the edges in my experience like a wood does.) Granted I can see mistakes with our interpretatio...

Re: How do you attack in this game?

On the subject of support points, as said, these are games to try to get a feel for all types, and we're limited with support options atm due to not having requisite figures. Also in spirit of "play the period not the rules", maybe the Platoon commander wasn't given the option of what he had? I very...

Re: How do you attack in this game?

Many thanks for the replies chaps. I wrote my post last night on my phone, I'm now on my PC so can post some pictures to illustrate the situation. But first to reply to pertinent points. So you now use your other squad, and the infantry gun and SFMG that you bought with all your extra support points...

How do you attack in this game?

First let me say I really like CoC, it's mechanisms, it's scale and whatnot. I get it. But. Every game we have played, the attackers just get mown down. Granted Matt could roll a 6 on a D4 so there is an inherent dice luck issue, but even so... Do people just roll phase dice and deploy nothing until...

Re: DO WE HAVE A SMOKE PROBLEM?

Just out of interest does smoke in this fashion stop hits being spread between the rifle team and the obscured MG team?

Re: Refreshing my memory questions

I think I will keep it simple and just make it a 45 degree shooting arc. Easy to adjudicate and understand.

We were playing bocage as blocking LoS unless at the obstacle and in a firing position. But of course if you are there you can see the other side.
