Too Fat Lardies – Talking Tactics


I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago…

Just in case you haven’t noticed, Rich Clarke posted a series of articles on the Too Fat Lardies Blog: Lard Island News, at the start of November.

These articles were all about small unit infantry tactics, and how these tactics can be applied in a game of Chain of Command. As such, these are articles about tactics, rather than rules and so they can be applied to whatever game you play, whether it’s Chain of Command, Bolt Action or any other platoon level game (and indeed, not just WW2, but moderns and sci-fi too)

Part 1: Introduction

Part 2: The Patrol Phase

Part 3: Deployment for the Attacker

Part 4: Deployment for the Defender

Part 5: Fire & Movement

Part 6: Resource Placement

Part 7: Fish & Chips

These really are a great set of articles – highly recommended for any Platoon Commander, no matter what your experience.
