Re: AAR: 5th Solo CoC, 12 Nov 13

German brief It's time to counter attack. For Hauptman Gunter, that means you're looking for a gap in the American formation and hitting it hard. Division has a panzergrenadier platoon on your route, use them as needed to knock down the American resistance. If you can develop the gap there's a kamp...

Re: TCHAE: ACW at Shiloh, 13 Nov 13

This will be an up close and person fight: in TCHAE, smooth-bore (SB) muskets have a range of 4". As far as I can determine, both sides were armed in this manner at this battle.

Re: TCHAE: ACW at Shiloh, 13 Nov 13

I started with only Cleburne's brigade of Confederates, but as I laid them out I found that I have the whole "Corps" for Hardee.

Or Ruggles, since a more than curious glance at the battle shows it was Pond's brigade that Wallace ran into initially, not Cleburne's.

Re: AAR: LFS at Desert Dune, 22 Oct 13

LFS did it for me. I have this bit of older (1960s) Scrubys painted/based and Napoleon's Battles and Empire laying around and never did much with them. Going through the tables solo was insanely annoying so they got put away. Then I ran across LFS which has the detail I want, the solo playability ne...

Re: AAR: Solo IABSM, 24 Oct 13

Started out slow, moving the blinds on 1 dice to get back into the grove of the game. On Turn 6 all the line platoons were spotted and deployed in columns of squads in line (due the size of the table). From the top of the table with the Japanese on the left they laid out 3rd, 2nd in the middle and 1...
