I decided to get hold of the Third Edition of Contemptible Little Armies and the corresponding Back of Beyond supplement yesterday. I've put off doing so until now as the old Second Edition is perfectly good. However, as it's now out of print it is about time I investigated the latest version, if only to try them out.
This means that I now have at least three derivatives of the original rules including Setting the East Ablaze, so there's plenty of scope to expand my Back of Beyond project and try out some different rules in the process. I'll write up a comparative review when the rules arrive in the post tomorrow.
Got 2nd & 3rd ed's myself. 3rd has a roll to hit (tactical rating of target) AND roll to kill - which I prefer TBH. Also clarifies shooting over troops which was a big problem in our gameReplyDelete
Look forward to trying them out when your Whites are ready for a game.ReplyDelete
You're on! Doing my HMGs & field gun right nowReplyDelete
Going to get these as well as I have read that they are an improvement over 2nd edition. We'll have to test them.ReplyDelete
