Chaco War (1932-35)

Gents, I am considering a Chaco War project for CoC. The German influence in Bolivia is obvious but the French (I believe) influenced the Paraguayans AFAIK...can anyone confirm? I guess the next question is what manuals would be the most relevant? Given the war was from ‘32-‘35 then how recent would...

The Abyssinian Crisis - 1939: Italians vs Franco-Abysinnia

Gents, An AAR by a guest poster, our own Pedevire, using The Abyssinian Crisis war theme as their backdrop. A nice brief battle report with some lovely eye candy. It's yet another nice variation using the same figures in an exotic setting based on the interwar hotspot in the Horn of Africa...nice wo...

Re: The Abyssinian Crisis - project blog

If you have Spanish Civil War Morrocans then these can sub in quite nicely for dismounted Meharistes. A few camels laying about sets the scene. I've used my Morrocans for this... These minis dropped in help improve the look somewhat https://abyssiniancrisis.wordpress.com/2016/02/18/figurs-for-french...

Re: The Abyssinian Crisis - project blog

The details of how they used in the game are given there and in the end reflect a fairly standard support level choice for most armies of this time. Be sure to post an after action report as we always like to see some acti...

Re: Sharp Practice - Darkest Africa!...the Masai!

Gents,

I've popped up some thoughts on using Darkest Africa Explorers in Sharp Practice.

I'm sure there is any idea or two you may be able to use...hope it's of some benefit.

Re: Sharp Practice - Darkest Africa!

Gents, ..the Masai in Sharp Practice! This post in this small series looks at portraying the Masai using the new version of Sharp Practice by Two Fat Lardies. It incorporates the new concepts of deployment points, ‘national’ characteristics and other unique elements of the Masai people and how Sharp...

Re: Sharp Practice - Darkest Africa!

Hi Vlad, To your points. 1. Consider smaller unit sizes for well-armed "Imperials" (not hard too imagine under-strength squads in these climates); perhaps units of 4 or 6 men for regulars instead of 8. 2. as mentioned on other threads, firing deductions for smoke for units that simply stay in place ...
