Re: French Resistance list

Something to consider support-wise is that, while you're not going to have much access to heavy equipment, there are a number of abstract support options whose game effects would still fit for a resistance force. I recommend looking at the various new options in Blitzkrieg 1940 especially, as Franc-...

Re: New player question: Modifying lists?

Thanks for the help! I heard from another thread that you can skip forming a mortar team entirely and have one just allocated to the platoon, to be used like a panzerfaust. So it would take a CI (command initiative?) to get any two men to fire it? How often do you think I would be able to choose al...

Re: New player question: Modifying lists?

Various nations airborne or other specialist units tend to stretch the force list system a bit because they tend to have so much equipment available to them that what they field in game terms could vary a lot in practice. Some lists handle this by allowing you to purchase individual weapons (without...

Re: Command Staff Armament? (esp. Dragoons)

That's a good thought! Sharpe's always got a rifle, and Harper his volley gun, etc. I'm focusing on the guerrilla war in Spain, so I planned on some variation already to make them feel raggedy. What is the regulation issue, though? Is the enlisted infantry with swords mostly a French thing, as a leg...

Command Staff Armament? (esp. Dragoons)

As I begin my foray into Napoleonics by assembling some (very nice) Perry French Dragoons and Victrix Infantry, I've come up with a couple of questions about modelling the armament of various command characters. This is purely a historical/modelling question, the rulebook is clear as to how Leaders ...

Re: Aventine EIR Archers

Metal figures, I presume? It often helps to score both surfaces with shallow cuts with a hobby knife, which gives the glue more surface area to grab ahold of. If nothing else, "pinning" them by drilling a small socket into both ends of the connection and gluing a short length of paperclip or metal r...

Re: Needed: German CO to pick supports

Seeing the table, I would definitely go with some entrenchments. Also a sniper team, even though it's command inefficient, because of how effective it is at countering the scout teams that will be a big threat here. An adjutant, a minefield or roadblock for the main road, and possibly a second minef...

Re: Needed: German CO to pick supports

Well I can't actually get to your blog at the moment (wordpress login issues), so I can't comment on the terrain, but I do have some thoughts on a unit breakdown. Since you've got essentially a full platoon but limited leadership, I'd organize the personnel one of two ways: If there's an obvious def...

Re: Western Desert Indian Army

A brief wikipedia search says it saw use in a wide variety of theaters, including N. Africa. Quite a large-caliber weapon for Chain of Command, but on the other hand one designed for flexibility. According to the article it was sometimes dismantled to be manually positioned in dense terrain, includi...
