Malaya 42 20mm campaign game-4

Postby mluther » Thu Jun 02, 2016 2:54 am

William and I continued the Malaya 42 Chain of Command campaign from the latest TooFatlardies' Xmas special.
Game 4 was Scenario 3 -Attack on the Australian defense line.
I made the mistake of getting fixated on overrunning the Australian right when I should have just gone through the trees and hit his weak left. Another fun game that has us hankerin' for the next one.
20mm minis and Chain of Command rules.

Hey Mark!

Great looking game in ever respect! Good vehicle, terrain and figures.

I take it from the "I made the mistake..." line that the Australians came out on top?

What type is the Japanese tankette driving down the road, I love all early (and later for some countries) WW II tankettes!

How do you find CoC rules, I have the Lardies IABSM and TW&T rules if you've played them is CoC anything like them? I plan to play ETO games with up to 60 figures a side with them.

Cheers!

Did a quick net search is the Jap tankette a Type 95 Ha-Go?

Form Tank Encyclopaedia
http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2/jap/Type_95_Ha-Go.php
The Type 95 kyugo-shiki kei-sensha Ha-Go, also known as Ke-Go and Kyu-Go, was a rather small machine of seven tons. The crew consisted of three men, the commander, which served also the main 37 mm (1.46 in) gun, a machine-gunner, and the driver. The commander, who had multiple tasks, was overloaded, a fate similar to that of his peers in many other early tanks. The main gun was a medium-velocity Type 98 37 mm (1.46 in), 46 caliber long, Hotchkiss-inspired gun. It was reliable, had a muzzle velocity of 675 to 700 m/s, and was capable of penetrating 25 mm (0.98 in) of armor at 500 m, with its armor-piercing rounds.

When you click on the link to the Flickr set you can scroll through the AAR. each pic has a description under it. I think most of your questions will be answered
CoC is a different system for sure. Dice activated units and 18" is short range. Morale is affected by 'bad things happening' and cumulative
Thanks for the comments
Mark
