Re: Basing

I would add that I use this 3-2-1 system rather than singles on sabots partially because I use 20mm figures, which, when mounted on both base and sabot, tend to look like they are standing on a raised stage. Yes, not a fan of the raised stage look but I do find sabots very handy. I use my Dremel to...

Re: Defense of Pokhlebin (CoC)

From TacticalPainter's posts I also learned not to deploy to quickly when defending. This worked but my decision to deploy the senior leader before the rest of the platoon had been deployed almost backfired because of a fast flanking move by the Soviets, annihilating a German team in close combat. ...

Re: Defense of Pokhlebin (CoC)

Great AAR’s, how are you finding the campaign without using “at the sharp end”? I’m still working my way towards getting the Germans ready for this. Love the the use of Pokémon coin for a damage counter. Has anyone else used at the sharp end for winter storm and if so how? Winterstorm was written b...

Re: CoC Bloody Bucket campaign (updated 30 05 21)

A fair call and a well-fought victory. As you yourself have noted, it does look like a tough campaign for the Germans to win, though I suspect if they are lucky with an early victory they may prove harder to stop. I would be interested if you can share any of Dave's thoughts/reflections on playing ...

Re: CoC Bloody Bucket campaign (updated 30 05 21)

After a bit of deliberation we've decided to call an American victory on the campaign and call it a day. We've played ten games across eight campaign turns, making this the longest campaign we have played to date, so I think we've given it a fair shot. Having won the previous scenario the Americans ...

Re: CoC Bloody Bucket campaign (updated 30 05 21)

I think the campaign has certainly produced that narrative. There is much to like about it, my only misgivings are that the Germans have a very tough task and the scenarios can end up feeling a bit repetitive ie the Americans defend a cluster of buildings and the Germans advance across open terrain ...

Re: CoC Bloody Bucket campaign (updated 16 05 21)

The Germans return to Holzthum Village for the second attack of campaign turn 8. This will be their third attempt to drive the Americans from the village. The question is, will they be any more successful this time? Full AAR is here: http://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/2021/05/bloody-bucket-campa...

Re: New to the game. Entrenchments: Markers or Terrain Pieces?

I’ve taken a couple of different approaches which you can find here http://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/ ... -aids.html

Re: Boycot of TMP

I just look at new product news occasionally and no longer read any message baords ....except TMP talk 🙂 TMP doesn't do product news, it just does adverts labelled as news. And TMP Talk is well worth reading for the laughs. Funny, I continue to post stuff there but I never look at boards like TMP T...
