Re: Recce Troop

I did a list for Late War German recce platoons. The easiest way to get these forces into CoC is to use the infantry component of the formation. So for the Germans they end up being very similar to Panzer Grenadiers but with lots of armoured cars for support and the shorty 250 halftracks. I've also ...

Re: Going tactical on deployment

I agree. The same rationale is given for the cover boost from being pinned as the one for going tactical ("making the best use of available cover"). So if you're pinned you're already getting the same benefit tactical gives.

It's not clear in the rules but I would only apply the penalty to a permanently immobilized vehicle.
Me too.

Re: Going tactical on deployment

I have always looked at tactical as movement activation I can see why, because you can combine tactical and movement. But you can also adopt tactical while making no movement (section 4.4). So tactical and movement are two different things. So yes, you can totally deploy in tactical. But if you don...

It appears the rules have been changed, please refer to Scott Driscoll post on FB.
I'm not seeing anything from Scott that could be called a change of the rules? He posted something about getting clarification on snipers and smoke, but I don't think there was anything novel in it.

Re: Ambush and Overwatch fire results

1 No 2 No (keep it simple) 3 They can't move, so they can't escape. Works for me too. If the ambushing team do disappear off-table they're assumed to have broken contact and gone to the platoon's rear. So having them auto-rally seems pretty sensible. They're out of the firing line, get to take a li...

Re: Going Tactical

So can someone clarify for me then. If going tactical is a move, then you can't deploy into a tactical stance, as you can't deploy and move? (wheeled vehicles aside..) Going tactical can either be done on the move or stationary. Doing either counts as an activation. Check out "Section and Team Acti...

If grading a platoon 'Diehard' is there a cost on the co-calculator? I've looked back but it's an awfully long strand!
No, that one's not covered. To be honest it's such a massive boost that I would only use it in very special scenarios. It's not something you'd want to use for a casual game.

Roll 5 or 6 they dont come on
Soviet barrage roll 4,5 or 6 and they don't come on
No rerolls for units that failed their attempt that phase.
No using a failed dice for another unit.

1-3 they don't come on
4-6 they do

Vs Soviets:
1-4 they don't come on
5-6 they do

Re: Starting in CoC, looking for help on 15mm vs 20mm

I would collect the scale that most of my likely opponents play in. This ^ You want to avoid having to do everything yourself, you'll get burnt out. Find the people who you'll be playing with and do what they do. I went for 28mm largely because my club already had a certain amount of terrain, and t...
