Re: More newbie doubts

1. I house-ruled the use of a Stug by having the vehicle pay 1" per 15-deg of turn. Admittedly fiddly, and slowing things a bit (along with requiring a protractor, but us old model builders have plenty of unused tools lying about...) but in the case of the Stug (where facing is critical) it was a we...

Re: What are you modelling?

Vague subject, so apologies.

What I'm interested in discussing is what is being modelled on our tabletops.

Is it the action or the pieces/parts?

What are you modelling?

Figures?...
Equipment?...
Terrain?...

...or is it the action?

Do you game what happens, or what it looks like?

Re: Casualties

In a CoC campaign casualty figs were placed (after calculating KIA v wounded) for the first-time-in-combat Americans for the second and third time they tried to take the table from the Germans. When the fresh platoon(s) came upon the bodies in the field or along the hedge of those that had gone befo...

Re: CoC 3D - looking for ideas.

... you can create ridge lines by placing fabric under a game cloth.
You can also create undulations/ridge lines on the table by putting pipe cleaners (either under or over the surface) on the table. They serve as definitive markers for where a cover or hulldown condition may exist.

Re: CoC compared to Crossfire

Like others, I do both - 15mm CoC and 6mm CF. They scratch different command/battle itches, so I don't see them as competing with each other. I also have IABSM, and have only held off play due to basing...stupid, admittedly, but that's where I sit (in my 50-deg F cellar) where I'm concentrating on g...

Re: Aircraft Record Sheets

If table space for the sheets may be an issue, consider printing a player's two sheets back-to-back (or just cut/fold) and slip into a 5x7 sheet protector -that's what I do with my aircombat sheets (same grease pencil use).

Re: Interupt Stalemates

It's possible to keep the number of CoC dice available to each side hidden by rolling command dice out of view of one's opponent (and, obviously, keeping the tracking of 5s rolled hidden as well...). Of course, wondering/worrying about what an opponent has 'up his sleeve' still exists, but it isn't ...

Re: Official sized jumpoff markers

" I'd love to see it at one end of the table..."

...and then see it moved 18" on a CoC die!

8th Army in Italy book recommendation

As the title says. Looking for suggestions on general history of campaign.
Nothing too basic ("The war in 24 pages") but not just about a single battle or unit - I'll get to those after I've learned the overall picture.

Thanks in advance.
