Re: Chaco War (1932-35)

"lack of figures" Well, the bulk of the infantry is available. Officers can be any SCW types and I have a plan for a very simple conversion of a few figures to carry a Madsen LMG instead of rifle...easy stuff. That pretty much gives you everything you need...so figures wise, it's quite doable. If a...

Re: Chaco War (1932-35)

Thanks for chipping in chaps @Truscott I have no knowledge or interest in the period but I think its great if people can adapt CoC for other periods that interest them like the SCW, RCW and this one.

It looks to the typical South American 35 man platoon organisation of this time. I designate these in my CoC lists as...

Re: Chaco War

Obscure but interesting. Yes. It is a bit. But we are very well served as wargamers with a few excellent titles that give us enough to flesh out what was going on in the Chaco in 1932-35. For a good online look check out...with translator... https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guerra_del_Chaco This is th...
