Re: Germans for Kursk PSC (Recommendations)

Thanks guys. I appreciate the detailed replies. I think Crusader may be the best bet, or perhaps risking BTD. As has been said in the thread, Artizan have large weapons, and my Soviets being Artizan I think other ranges with larger weapons will be ideal. I find that the sizes of the figures differin...

Germans for Kursk PSC (Recommendations)

Hi all, I've recently finished painting up my Soviet rifle platoon plus various support options, and am now looking to do a German force so that I can host games to spread the Lard and also, well, play with myself if it comes down to it. :D Anyway, my Soviet force is made up primarily of Artizan Des...

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE

News that Ancients SP will happen and Dux Brit will be getting some attention is quite a good birthday pressie. Especially as I read it after pouring a nice birthday beer. :D

Re: War of the roses, SP v2

A friend and I have played a few games of this now. It's really very good! We're currently looking at ways to tone down the archers though as we've yet to have a game where the rate of fire of archers has not decided the entire battle. We've only got units into melee once so far and that was because...

Re: CONCERNS WITH SINGLE-TEAM SQUADS

As someone who mostly plays as the Soviets in Chain of Command, I have to say the single team aspect of their platoon sections is definitely a challenge. The cons outweigh the pros, I've found. Allowing for the fact that they're already at a disadvantage by having me in command, the platoon having s...

Re: Force Composition - Please advise a novice

Hello Bev! We've found that groups of 8 works quite well for lighter infantry with line being 10 (and therefore having a bit more staying power). As for colours, we have even just stuck a colour bearer with groups here and there for the nice atmosphere, with him having no effect on shooting or even ...

Re: CoC - What scale do you play?

I bought platoons in 28mm for Chain of Command, but have decided to resell them and stick with 15mm. For one thing, my 15mm stuff is already based individually for IaBSM anyway so they will be perfect. Secondly, I can't see myself painting the same thing in two scales - not to mention the terrain re...

Re: Forum vs Yahoo Grooup

I've tried to get into it but the Yahoo format is ****ing terrible. It's the forum or nothing for me, which is a shame because I like the Lard community and LOVE the Lardy rules philosophy.
