Re: 1939-era Polish cavalry

Bumping this thread as it never really came to a satisfactory conclusion. Just wondered if anyone’s been playing CoC with Polish cav on the tabletop. Would be nice to see a working Force List for them, one that acknowledges the high concentration of NCOs and support weapons compared to Polish infant...

Re: Panzer iii ausf e

Panzer III A-C were early prototypes but some saw action in Poland. The E was the first version that had a production run of more than a few tens of vehicles and all were made in 1939. The Consolidated Arsenal has the D, E and early Fs all with 1 better armour but the same support cost as the A-C v...

I noticed that there are two Waterloo scenarios listed.
Not two but three:

Sambre, Hougoumont and Plancenoit.

Re: Transffering troops

I did warn that amalgamations might be ‘gamed’ to avoid taking morale tests. I suppose they’re better suited to solo games than more competitive play. As for shock, I thought it was a given that you transfer it along with the figure you are transferring just as in Sharp Practice. Personally, I would...

It’s like the final survivors catching their breath, re-arming, and regrouping for that “one final push”.
All two of them..... 8-)
With an MG42 and JL to control fire. Yes.

Re: New Player Queries

Cavalry is not really going to work on a 4’ by 4’ table, at least not to its full historical advantage. Otherwise I’d agree with @Counterpane that 4’ by 4’ is plenty in dense or urban scenery. As always, try a few games to see if the rules work for you before making any major investment.

Lovely stuff. I can just imagine them facing a few massive Celtic Warbands!

Re: Transffering troops

In Sharp Practice you can consolidate Groups — the cost being the equivalent of one C.I. This is certainly to your advantage, especially when you redistribute shock across the surviving groups in a more even way. You don’t need to throw for loss of a Group. Doesn’t make logical sense to me that orde...

Foederati: I do them all in mail and some with roman style helmets, and mainly with swords as well as spears. Personally I think they'd revert to tribal patterns on their shields but I can see arguments either way. There seems to be evidence that what you call the tribal patterns were influenced by...

I have been wargaming since the 1960s and have almost completed a representation of Legio VI Victrix and some supporting Auxilia at about 1:20 figure scale in 28mm size figures based on the units that left their identity on or near the Antonine Wall. Oooh, that would be amazing to see. Do you have ...
