    Trying to get my head around the rules and a question…

    If you have a platoon of Soviets (or 1917 British) where there are no Teams, just whole sections, what do you do when you roll a 1 on a command die?  If you don’t have any attached weapons teams, are 1’s just wasted?


    It is highly likely I have not researched this enough…  Thanks for bearing with

    “…I have not researched this enough…”

    Nor I, but just off the cuff: The main application would be in adding it to another die to make a useful result.  This is, admittedly, a poor answer to the problem, but I interpret it to reflect on the poor command ability/structure within the Soviet platoon?  dunno, really…tbh, I’m looking for ways to avoid yardwork

    Jozis TinMan:

    Yup, if you have no teams or choose to ignore them on a go, then add the ones to other ones, twos and threes to make higher level command dice combo orders. Stray ones may occasionally have to be ignored if you cannot productively add them to some other command numbers, but that’s just life I guess. You can’t make fives or sixes by adding command dice numbers. Enjoy the gaming. Are you playing WWI with CoC? That’s very cool.

    Cheers, be well and good gaming.

    What sort of bourgeois counterrevolutionary doesn’t spend support points on a team?

    A commissar will be along to instruct you on proper revolutionary thinking.

    Hey guys!  I am an idgit.  I have owned the rules since they came out but never played them!  I have never, ever noticed that you can add die pips together to make other dice…

    I want to give it a swing with my 10mm WW1 and I also have 10mm Korean War I want to try it with, I am organizing the NKPA and CVF’s like Russians.  The US Army is a little different from WW2 as you have 9 man rifle squads instead of 12 and a integral LMG team in the weapons squad.  Plus you’ll probably have an attached 57mm Recoiless rifle.  I have been reading the 1949 version of the FM on the Rifle Company and platoon…

    I’ll post more as I get in to it.
