    my view is that (as I’ve said else where) CA is a few ideas short of completion :p

    but BRS v ground targets – see how many hex’s defending aircraft are away… thats how many turns go by before they turn up…half the turns (or turn 4 if not on the board) to turn up disadvantaged?

    VaS idea… transports are free but you get a % of the BA points…[Read more]

  • I would go with the attacking force choosing the game…

    IE if air units attack then its BRS (either airstrike or sqn v sqn)
    if sea unit then its VaS or CS…

    For VaS v transports I would see how many transports / proxies for them I have and then allocate BA army points to each transport with 10-20% allocated to convoy protection

    ie a 1K BA…[Read more]

    well… its official…. you only get 1 blue card …

    so yeah if you want to play VaS or CS in your campaign your iniative card deck gets bigger :
    & either VaS or CS was a later addition and someone forgot to alter the number of cards in the rulebook on the number of iniative cards you get ….

  • Its an optional rule for large games… I’ll just add that if you put them line astern unless both ships are destroyers you can be touching base and be over 4″ away!!!  … so you’ll find a house rule is if ships are touching base then they are at point blank range / in proximity irrespective of actual measurement.

    ps if you look in the ‘news…[Read more]

    When you flip the token over to be concealled you take the plastic model off… you auto generate a scout (blank) token so your army will be in one of two places at the end of the move.

    Totally agree with the 80% written, I feel its missed the mark on the campagin side as if you have more than 2 players (so pretty much every gaming group /club!)…[Read more]

  • Nat replied to the topic First Impressions in the forum Combined Arms 2 weeks ago

    So I have a question….how many of each type of iniative cards are you supposed to have?

  • Nat started the topic First Impressions in the forum Combined Arms 2 weeks ago

    Ok, received it yesterday… but I was at the club so not had a look at the rulebook – thats tonights mission :p

    But first impression is it looks good and robust, but limited to 2 players without some House Rules… will see if thats true or not!

    Is there any plans to have a Historical Sub-forum setup for Combined Arms?

    As its being delivered to direct customers if not today then this week….

  • @SteveT – I always have a bone of contention when people come in to a game specific group /page/ forum and then say play a different game instead…

    I mean I’m here because I play/ want to play X game so lets talk about X instead of telling me the Y is better!

    I have no idea….todays news letter says that skytrex has the official control of the ‘cruel seas’ brand….

    Hmmm…..

  • Nat replied to the topic Midway starter issues in the forum Blood Red Skies 4 weeks ago

    Going off patchy memory & 2nd hand info (from the BRS readyroom FB group ,that’s run by one of the beta group I think) but its not a seperate printing but rather corrections done during printing.

    I say i’m going off 2nd hand info because neither myself nor any of my local group actually have the midway starterbox!!!

  • Nat replied to the topic Midway starter issues in the forum Blood Red Skies 4 weeks ago

    The initial run of boxes did have several issues.. including the planes being put in to the wrong slots before being sealed which lead to large numbers of planes being broken in transit.  And IIRC yeah WL did acknowedge the connector size issues… if you let the CS guys know I’m sure they’ll replace them all for you.

    Sound like you got one of…[Read more]

    @ArtfulB….Albion Triumphant 2 pg 105 – KGL LINE have rifle mixed formation and are 40 pts

    The KGL light battalions also have the same rule BUT are equiped with rifles so is pointless & NOT charged (i’ve done a breakdown of the points… they are costed for having rifles across the board)

  • Nat replied to the topic Rules Question Thread in the forum Black Powder 1 month ago

    @Stefan – KGL have rifle mixed formation during the 100 days (Albion Triumphant 2) which is the extra point. (their skirmishers fire as rifles).  In the Peninsular (Albion Triumphant 1) they are the same cost as the British Red Coats.

  • Nat replied to the topic Struggling with play/stratagems in the forum Bolt Action 1 month ago

    Ideas /suggestions for how to deal with Japanese with Russians…

    1) heavy tanks – I like the IS2 or the ISU-152
    2) protect the tanks by taking out the suicide guys… if you lose a unit to kill them – oh well
    3) green inexp rifle squads sat near a Politruk (Stalingrad book) who’s out of LoS
    4) Tank riders and /or assault engineers as Vets with…[Read more]

  • Nat replied to the topic Questions for some topics. in the forum Victory At Sea 1 month ago

    1) RAW is unclear.  As the ship would still move the min 1″ as its not run aground or at anchor it can be argued that the ship is not stationary, however  I would play it as YES as the ship isnt sailing under control but drifting on the current and so can easily be tracked by the firing ship (hence the +1).

    2) Two schools of thought with this- i…[Read more]

    Ok something else I’d missed – the smugglers run campaign has been updated and included in this supplement.

  • @bobD – sorry not sure why they’re not showing anymore 🙁   I cant see them either…. will try and find the picture on FB again.

    I litterally have no more info that is in this thread…. all I do is post what I see on FB 🙁

    Its been a while since we last heard /seen anything about the warlord in house army builder that would cover all their systems…

    Now will this builder cover Cruel Seas if /when its released?
