Re: Recce Troop

I see that Lardy Nick has produced an excellent article in the new Lard Mag about British Recce and how to represent it in CoC. Exactly what I was looking for, in fact!

Re: Lard Magazine

Just ordered a copy. Any publication that can describe Dr Brown, in the spirit of Christmas charity, as a 'housewife's favourite' deserves to be supported: bantz + some excellent looking scenarios!

Re: Recce Troop

Thanks for that Darren, I wonder how you (and others!) deal with the question of the JL 'section' commander exercising control over a team in a different vehicle? I can see the if they were not fitted with radio you could just go for proximity (6"?), ie keeping the two vehicles close together, but w...

Re: Recce Troop

Thanks for that Seret. I can see that approach would work well though of course it solves the question by turning ones 'recce platoon' into an infantry one with some bolt-ons. SteveC - that's the type of thing I had in mind. I've read the Brits often used the armoured & scout cars in pairs, eg a Dai...

Recce Troop

Just wondering whether any of you have put together orders of battle for reconnaissance units? I was thinking of something US or British for 1944 Normandy but you equally might have tried it with German or other armies. The number of troopers was usually small compared to an infantry platoon so one ...

Absolutely - the PIAT or bazooka was often left in a vehicle and the men used as runners or to top up another section, whatever. And indeed soldiers switched between sections. The rules do allow some reconfi...

Re: Germans for Kursk PSC (Recommendations)

Crusader are a good bet, as TT says, nb if you don't mind the larger weapons, though not quite as big as Artizan! The Assault Group seem fine to me for anything from 1943 onwards - they do have the ankle style boot, it's true https://theassaultgroup.co.uk/product/german-infantry-with-m98k-with-mixed...
