Re: HCon 2018 Lard?

So I have to tell you a couple of things. On Saturday I played the absolute best games I have ever played in all my 30 years of wargaming and both were CoC. One was SCW and the other Russia 1942. Great opponents and very challenging situations Greg, You've made my day! Thank you! I was really happy...

Re: HCon 2018 Lard?

How can you tell from the PEL whether a game is full or not? Inquiring minds would like to know.. (especially for my own games!)

Re: Late War Finnish Platoon - Continuation War

Who does best Continuation War Finns in 28mm? Who else besides Warlord does them?

Since Romanians and Hungarians have recently had quality figure lines released by Tsuba & Great Escape, I'd love to get some Finns to round out the Eastern Front "other guys".

Thanks!

Re: Testing Platoon Level rules (CoC, BA and TMP dumpster fires)

I keep thinking VVV has to be purposely misunderstanding things. And if it lives under a bridge like that, it just might be a troll... :shock:

Re: Testing Platoon Level rules (CoC, BA and TMP dumpster fires)

Mortar, That's an interesting little scenario! I have BG:K and haven't ever given that one a try, but sounds like it would be a great intro to BG. However, I think it's probably a little Vehicle/gun heavy for this test. Not all rules sets can handle it all and there might be an emphasis on the armor...

Re: Testing Platoon Level rules (CoC, BA and TMP dumpster fires)

Yes, I think you should keep it simple and just use basic ingredients that will be common to all rulesets...why not something ubiquitous like, say...a tiger 1 taking on 3 Sherman’s in a completely fictional and unlikely fashion? ".......... I’ll get me coat........ :? Ha! I have a similar thread to...

Re: Testing Platoon Level rules (CoC, BA and TMP dumpster fires)

After reading that TMP thread and Rich's thoughtful responses, I've decided that CoC and other Lardie products are of interest to me. More relevant to the OP, I like the idea of a standard test scenario for evaluating rules. I think the trick will be keeping the scenario broad enough (and keeping a...

Re: Testing Platoon Level rules (CoC, BA and TMP dumpster fires)

Personally I would stick to two basic infantry platoons with some supports for a comparative scenario, rather than introduce additional elements like Pionier and Partisan squads which complicate the issue and game flow. For a straightforward comparison between rules I think it best to stick with re...

Re: Testing Platoon Level rules (CoC, BA and TMP dumpster fires)

TT, Thanks for the feedback! I'm honestly going back and forth on the Mortars but was looking for a way to highlight how different rules sets deal with offboard artillery assets. Could up it to 105mm support which would abstract out to a pre-game bombardment it I'm not sure that's better. What to pu...

Posted this on the new Warlord forum and it got instantly locked... I don't have high hopes for them!
