Re: Lessons from the Far East

I agree, but I think that it's supposed to be pretty desperate feeling. Your suggestion is not a bad compromise, though. Would you suggest that in place of the existing reinforcements or in addition to them? I could see it either way, but I like the idea of having them as additional, but you only ca...

Re: Lessons from the Far East

Mark, this is really good stuff. I wish everyone, including myself, put this much thought into their games, let alone the context that they are played in. I really enjoy following your campaigns and I am eagerly awaiting the start of the next one. One thing that I thought of that may justify a poten...

Re: US Army in the Pacific

Not trying to be hard on my own branch, haha. I was referencing the USMC list when making that suggestion. Something to think about, if we can confirm that this was not uncommon outside the 81st, we should include it in the list. That said, I think that a force should be based around the TO&E and th...

Gunnar's Pacific Adventure

So, with the news that Rich is working on the Far East supplement for Chain of Command, I've decided to finally take the plunge and make my Pacific forces. Right now the plan is just for Japanese, USMC, and US Army, with British troops planned for when Warlord replaces their British plastics, which ...

Re: US Army in the Pacific

In that case, it looks like we could assume the island hopping units for sure would have the ability to purchase an extra SMG per squad at 1pt each.

For the BAR's maybe the same thing?

Re: Dux Arda: Lard of the Rings

Some good stuff there John. Real life has really been messing with my plans for campaigns at the moment, but the hospital visits should be over at this point, so I should be able to get down to work.

US Army in the Pacific

Does anyone know if the US Army platoon was any different for the Pacific Theatre? I could see CBI or the Island Hopping being drastically different from Europe, but the Army being the Army, I could absolutely see them keeping it exactly standard across the board.

Re: Engineers in the coculator

If you really want them to be considered, you could always look at the standard support list and then the player would have to pay the price to exchange 3 riflemen for the 3 engineers/men with appropriate equipment.

Re: Where IS Lard Island

Somewhere off the coast of St. Albans, I believe. Or so the legends say.

Re: Mashing COC with TW&T

Well, you'll probably want to mash CoC and TW&T in the privacy of your bedroom... But seriously though, CoC should be able to handle the actual game play mechanics pretty well for the period, you would just have to find/write some stats for vehicles and run some force lists through the CoCulator. At...
