Re: French Groupe Frac Motorise' de Cavalerie

Realistically, whatever you and your opponent agree on. Mounted troops are interesting to use, but in Chain of Command they're unlikely to remain mounted for very long after they deploy. You could definitely get by with just a token or a single motorcycle alongside the foot figures to indicate it fo...

Re: Using Flames of War’s Hit the Beach

That looks great actually - really like the round bases for the weapons teams. Also agree on the empty battlefield look, works for me (I’m doing O Group in 6mm partly for that reason). Can I ask where you get your trees and telegraph poles? Yeah, wanted to make sure I could pick out weapons teams. ...

Re: Using Flames of War’s Hit the Beach

These are my 15mm Soviets, a mix of manufacturers. I base the crewed weapons so that they stand out easily. No different bases for leaders, but try to use pointing poses. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E3vHjOTUUAMv5_8?format=jpg&name=4096x4096 And in action. You can really see how 15mm gives the "empty...

Re: Using Flames of War’s Hit the Beach

I have that kit! Don't play Americans, so don't know how the pieces line up, but the Germans worked just fine.

My recommendation is to use metal washers of your preferred base size, so that the figures will stick to magnetic sheet for transport and have at least a little heft.

Re: Where do you get your models?

I most recently gone all in with 28mm Offensive Miniatures. I could not be more pleased. At the present I have US Airborne, FJR and SS platoons, and am just adding their British Airborne. They are along the lines of 1/56, so are not quite a big as figures such as Artizan. They are very well proport...

Re: How well does CoC handle historical scenarios?

A good way to think of it is that the figures placed on the table are only those located by the enemy. Until actually placed on the table, concealed units or those in reserve are abstracted by the jump-off points, with the patrol phase determining where they can get to before being spotted. If the d...

Re: Running a campaign

A third recommendation for At the Sharp End . It covers all of the basics, and is used for most of the published Pint-Sized Campaigns. A brief overview of what's in there: The standard campaign framework is a "ladder" of individual maps & scenarios that the attacker is trying to fight along, with th...

Re: Ways to run soviet commisars?

Through 1941 and the first half of 1942 they are co-commanders, and I treat them as an additional Senior Leader (sometimes an Inferior one with only two CI). They are removed from that role in August of '42 and from then on would essentially be an Adjutant in game terms unless your scenario calls fo...

Re: Differing Cover and Crewed Weapons with a Shield

I'd apply it at the same time as cover, it is their (portable) cover.
