Re: German Anti-tank Rifles

Yep I cant find any reference to them not being issued and the captured Polish ones were put out fast. German. Tungsten ammo production copied from the Polish didnt take long to begin production. It fact everything points to a "we need these" rather than we wont bother "their useless" Poland demons...

Re: Leader activating 'twice'?

The important bit to understand is that there are some things that are activations and some things that aren't. Shooting and moving are activations, using a CI to remove a point of shock isn't. So if your leader has moved or shot along with the unit when it moves or shoots, then he's had his activa...

Re: Which support options have you never used?

What is cheesy about having squads from other platoons? Without them the attacker is always at 1 to 1? We do count them as casualties for the men's and CO's opinion however. Other support troops like MMG, IG do not count as causalities either. Mainly that they would notionally be drawn from your ot...

Re: Which support options have you never used?

For personnel I haven't used additional infantry squads, as I find them kind of "cheesy" in campaigns, although I have used specialist squads like motorcycle troops. Also haven't ever had a use for mine-clearance and wire-cutting teams. Weapon and vehicle-wise I've used (or have immediate plans to u...

Re: French Flamethrowers in WW2

Huh, I'd never really thought about it, but I haven't ever seen a WWII French flamethrower model either. Very interesting info. What we see here is everyone trying to get flamethrowers for their support units because they are an über-weapon in CoC. CoC is the most flamethrower-heavy game I've seen. ...

Re: Scenario Win Conditions

That would be worth losing in that way just to be able to tell the story. "Blah blah blah and the I rolled another 1 ....and BANG! I lost the game!" 😊 What I mean is the defender would actually still win. They usually don't keep the ground on that scenario in campaigns, and have to fall back even i...

Re: At the Comrade End?

From my reading, many units still had a territorial character at the start of Barbarossa, and the first months of desperate fighting actually reinforced this, as local militia and volunteer units were amalgamated with regular formations. Obviously as the war progressed there would be a lot of churn.

Re: Scenario Win Conditions

There are a couple of scenarios where, even if the defender routs, the attacker still loses if their force morale is 3 or less. In the Blitzkrieg book it would be possible for the defender to win Going with a Bang, but have the detonation inflict a morale hit that caused them to rout at the same time.

28mm WWII Danish Kickstarter

As its the 80th anniversary of the invasion of Denmark, Great Escape Games just started a kickstarter for WWII Danish Infantry and motorcyclists. I've been looking for such figures for a long time, and I'm sure several of you have been as well: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1165095497/april-9...
