Re: French Resistance list

The classic resistance didn't (rarely) took the field against regular occupying formations. I don't want to pour cold water on the suggestion, but things like cloak and dagger, demolitions, spying and smuggling downed airmen rarely fit with regular Army Vs Army wargame rules. You'll find more joy wi...

Re: Jump-Off Point placement

Dead ground behind the hill fits well with the "Covered approach to JOP location" ethos.

Re: Figures or Rules?

It' a chicken and egg question but I'd plump for rules first.

Find a set of rules that look like fun and fit your tabletop and figure budget.
Different rules have different basing standards.
Trust me, you don't want to go re-basing 6mm figures.

Both Baccus and TFL are great companies to deal with.

Re: How to play CoC solo?

CoC looks like the sort of game where a player can "change ends at the break" and play both sides. It doesn't have too many issues with second guessing the enemy. Those which there are might be abstracted by noting likely options and letting the dice decide. Examples that spring to mind. *...

Re: Japanese Jump-Off Point Models

The Jump off points represent frontline positions determined during scouting. I've always wondered how much military kit (assuming scouts travelling light) would get dumped at the JOP location. Alternatively one could portray the JOP with various leavings of units that deployed through it. But, what...

Re: CoC Lesser Powers

What's in a title.

I read CoC as Call of Cthulhu (It's Christmas, Eggnogg had been taken ...).

The major power is clearly the Great Old Ones.
Lesser powers probably involve the Satisfactory Middle-aged Ones?

Re: "Cult of Lard"

Who wrote that, and when is their tarring and feathering scheduled? (Angry Emoji).... Back in serious mode. Hobbies attract all types, and forums (fora?) / social media can often focus the worst into little groupthink mobs. Perfectly normal hobbyists can end up adjacent to such types without doing a...

Re: British carrier section?

Wikipedia (Not necessarily 100% accurate) claims The Universal Carrier's weapons could be fired from in- or outside the carrier. (Paragraph before the table) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Carrier#United_Kingdom I searched for supporting photographs and found nothing definitive. The closest...
