Re: Halftracks and Passengers

I wonder if the confusion over their use is because it changed a number of times over the course of the war. I'm speculating that they were used as primarily transports in Poland and France because they were unknown technology and had limited numbers. Then in mid-war, their abilities were more known...

Re: German Anti-tank Rifles

The Boys I could see justifying a 1 rather than a 2. There were some poor design choices made in it in comparison to its peers.

Re: Limbers and clutter ?

Yup, I turn the muzzle towards the enemy for unlimbered and away for limbered. Limbers are essentially eye-candy, which you can indulge or not according to your fancy.

Re: Patches of Snow

What about using white Styrofoam mounds and melt/seal them with a heat gun to represent these as snow? The one thing I find about heavily melted snow is that it tends to look "dirty" with all kinds of bits on it, so I'd be wary about using pure white. Even non-melted snow rapidly loses that pristine...

Re: Visibility into building

Yes, there are all kinds of house rules that we could apply. I have no doubt that some of them are very good.

Re: Visibility into building

I'm not disagreeing that the effect is historical, it's just that the mechanics of it lead to unhistorical behaviour. I'm also not sure it was an absolute attack stopper, though that would be the most probable outcome. As I said, my hope is that the medium mortar rules would be revisited to make the...

Re: Visibility into building

In real life, the FOO would not be anywhere near his own front-line troops and would also avoid obvious observation points where possible ("The Quiet Gunner At War" provides interesting information from an actual FOO). Their best defense was to not be observed. In CoC, you really can't do that with ...

Re: Do my support teams wear my uniform?

There's no point, which is the point, other than there is also a certain amount of obsessive-compulsive behaviour being demonstrated as well.

Re: Do my support teams wear my uniform?

People do strange things when they get caught up. I ended up painting hands on 2mm figures. I'm unable to explain why except that I must have some OCD in me.
