    Cheers, I am glad you enjoyed the video. I am surprised that it took me this long to play a KS, I guess it was just no chance previously. It really gives you a completely different view on tabletop gaming and an appreciation of the smaller actions that are part of military operations. Looking forward to my next one!

    Not a problem Mark, they are surprisingly easy to do, but that said my first attempts using pollyfilla were complete write off, so I went with this method instead.

    Cheers, yeah it’s a bit of a minefield when starting out and can be quite intimidating. Especially when all the videos I’ve seen have been by people who know exactly what they are doing so they miss out the absolute starter stuff. I saw one recently where someone was doing it for the first time, but they were with someone who knew how to use one, so it was a slight cheat as they would have had instructions from off camera, we all don’t have that luxury…

    Cheers, I am glad you found them useful. Yeah, there is a lot more manoeuvre, and the action switches about, depending on where you are issuing orders and where things are hotting up. I think the Panther being better is due to the more abstracted rules for firing with tanks. In CoC there are quite a few outcomes which can lead to a tank being KOed, like jamming the wheels/turrets, crew suffering shock, etc. As these are representing multiple tanks, the firing effect is less granular, so they are either shocked, damaged or KOed. In hindsight, I should have used smoke to get three of the Shermans behind the Panther and then would have had a better chance at brewing it up. Lessons learned…

    Yay! Finally! I noticed on a couple of my more recent videos that the closed caption was working. Perhaps it just needed to recognise my accent? Maybe worth going back and checking if they work for you as well?

    The SU-85 didn’t reach front line units until August ’43, but late for this game, I’m afraid. I was also trying to have a balanced defence, but if I were to try this again I would certainly put more Soviet tanks on the table. I thought they’d take out a couple of German tanks at least.
