Re: Capturing Caesars Camp - New PSC

The 51st had the new organisation (11/section) in place before Abbeville and was known to be 'overstrength' while it was at the Maginot.

Re: Excess shock but winning combat.

Any withdrawal from combat by a warrior group caused by excess shock will trigger a roll on the BTH table. The errata removed the words “by defeat” from the 3rd line in the BTH table. Also as per the FAQ, in a drawn combat where both sides have excess shock, then both withdraw and by virtue of the ...

Re: Handling casualties in "At The Sharp End" campaigns

I almost hate to ask - but has anyone ever actually won this campaign as the Scots? I'm not sure but there are a few video logs for the Scottish Corridor and a few Blog AARs. It's one we started last year but we never really got a chance to take it very far. Scott's CYL: https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Re: Handling casualties in "At The Sharp End" campaigns

Sounds more like sometimes you are the pigeon and sometimes you are the shotgun! The Scots seem to have got the rough end of the pineapple throughout WW2., from Abbeville and St Valery right through to the Martlet and the Scottish corridor. IIRC they got hammered in nth Africa and Far East too. :cr...

Re: Handling casualties in "At The Sharp End" campaigns

The Scottish Corridor is a real tough PITA for the Brits to win. It can be done though. I'd suggest fighting it twice, switching sides. My own opinion on ATSE casualties is that you deduct for any FM difference, then work out the Dead/Wounded/Return and then use those numbers for the Men's Opinion. ...

Re: VEHICLES IN A MORTAR BARRAGE

Yeah I'm with TT on this. Pinned is is an effect that happens to infantry and similar infantry support units. Armoured vehicles deal with shock markers differently in CoC and eventually bail out rather than being pinned. The one restriction I might place is to limit their movement to 1D6 since their...

Re: Saipan PSC obstacle question

Late to the party....again. I should visit this forum more frequently. Needless to say I am always interested in feedback for this PSC (and any of my other ones). They're never truly finished until the talking stops. Having 'finished' the new PSC fot Travis and his TTCP channel, I was thinking about...

Re: Saipan PSC obstacle question

Excellent! I did look at doing a followup using the 27th Division. The situation the 27th found themselves in and the task they were given means it's difficult to get a campaign out of it. It's a real meat grinder and it's hardly surprising they lacked enthusiasm for it. There's a game in there some...

Re: Saipan PSC obstacle question

Hi Peter, Apologies, I dont tend to check this forum very often these days. It's quicker to check the evil FB. The hedge you're talking about is the one that runs along the light railway in scenario 4? The picture shows the hedge that was there which is about 8 feet tall so it would block line of si...
