Re: Multiple Bad Things Happen

Hi guys:

Thanks for the quick responses.

I completely missed or forgot the distinction between breaking and routing. In our case, the German would only have to roll for the section breaking. Now noted.

Thanks again.

Kent

Multiple Bad Things Happen

I have recently introduced CoC to the group of gamers with whom I play. To my surprise and delight a number of the guys who do not usually play historical games are now busy building and painting their CoC platoon and asking me to set up a game. Is CoC the "gateway drug" of wargaming? First, CoC ,th...

MRB British Platoon Support List 5

Greetings all. Have just started getting into CoC and so far love the rules. I am busy reorganizing and rebasing alot of my old FoW figures into usable platoons and support. I imagine this has been asked before but after a search couldn't find anything. Anyway, List 5 Support allows " Recce Section ...

Reinforcing melee in BUA

In our current game we have a small town represented by two adjacent BUA. Both BUA are garrisoned by a British battalion. The French have charged the BUA on the British right with a result of a further round of melee. Can the British battalion in the adjacent BUA reinforce the melee? Thanks for the ...

Re: In which order?

So, just to be clear, the lead unit may halt its retire/retreat/rout move behind a support unit that was "driven back" as a result of the same charge?

Re: 100 Days - Battle of Gilly

We just played the Gilly scenario this past Saturday and had a great game. Everyone enjoyed the game and more importantly, really liked the rules. We completed all 10 turns in just over three hours with the Prussians handily fending off the French attacks. The French had absolutely diabolical die ro...

Re: Terrain and Combat

I wondered about the unformed too but that would create even more problems as an unformed unit can't charge so it would be almost impossible to dislodge an enemy holding the river/stream bank.

My inclination is to penalize the attacker during the Melee phase with the loss of 1CD.

Terrain and Combat

As I continue to peruse the rules in preparation for our next game, I was surprised to note that terrain has little impact on combat. Close order infantry fire on the inferior table but there is no combat bonus, either in the charge or melee phase, for have a superior position whether that be uphill...

Re: Corps commander optional rules and independent brigades

Hi Nick: Game got postponed until this evening. Real life got in the way. Fortunately, we have no time restraints as I can leave my table set up. Will try and remember to take some pics and figure out how to post them. I think the rules would work for large games as long as the players are both fami...

Re: Corps commander optional rules and independent brigades

Hi John et al. Thank you for your response. It was what I was expecting, more or less. How would you handle a multi Corps game with say Napoleon present with a couple of Corps and the Guard? Would you treat the Emperor as a Corps Commander and allow him distribute his 4 ADC to his Corps Commanders w...
