A third post in 3 days! Sorry if it's annoying, but if I don't put it down now I'll forget what happened. Nathan did come over yesterday and we had a small game of CoWaCoC(stupid name 'innit!). By small I mean a small table, only 4' square, and a basic platoon with an under armoured vehicle each.
My Russians went first and promptly got 3 phases in a row. I managed to bring on 2 squads, one on each side of the table, plus my left flank was supported by a BMP-1.
All in all it played well. We both enjoyed it and it did it's job as a first playtest by showing that I needed to change a few things. The armour ratings of vehicles have gone up a bit, which means that light armour is still very fragile, but it might survive if hit. Also, I am going to try making assault rifles 2 dice instead of 3 within 18". I still gives the russians a firepower advantage at close range, but not 3 to 1. I am also playing about with a support list, so that should be up soon. All in all it was a succesful game and we will do another one soon.
I have spent today sorting out Gus' 6mm Napoleonics to put on eBay over the weekend. There are thousands of the little buggers, over 3800 infantry figures! Sadly 99.9% are unpainted as it was Gus' retirement plan to paint them all. Anyway, off now to do something less productive. Keep rolling those dice folks, you'll get a 6 eventually.
Back to the Brushes 132 - Another stand of 15mm Arabs awaits basing, this time it is bow armed skirmishers from Essex miniatures. Finally found a painting style that suits this scal...
