Kübelwagen Command Cars = Troop 20 ?? Sun, 10 June 2012 22:57
Just to speculate ,,, for something to do while waiting for the Equipment Pack release.

Do you think the Kübelwagen Command Cars is Troop 20 ??
If so, what special rule would be a good one for a command car?

1. re-roll attack dice for the accompanying unit ?
2. Extra movement,, a extra attack Die ?
3. Something to do with a card(s) ?
4. Something better than the Lame ideas above !!!!


And there is the number of Summary cards included !?
Does there seem to be more cards than figures types ?

Maybe they function in a similar way to the leaders in C&C: Ancients.

Which is...? I'm afraid Memoir '44 is the only Richard Borg game I've played. Confused

I haven't played ir, but from what I could quickly see when browsing the rulebook was that they can move from unit to unit, and they let unit's hit on helmet icons. Probably equvalent to stars on the m'44 die. Didn't see any more about what they do.
Kinda like a moveable Heroic Leader that you can attach and detach to various units.

Hmmm, interesting. This brings up a fact that I've known for a while but that I've simply been ignoring...I really need to get some of the other Richard Borg games! Laughing Razz

I enjoy Memoir '44 so much, I'm sure I would like his other C&C games! Cool

Sorry, back to the mystery at hand...so a movable Heroic Leader...sounds cool. Are there any other rules that are exact replicas from his other games? Rolling Eyes

Ohhhh, ya gotta get the Ancient version.
I'm one of those that think its the best version of C&C.
The C&C 'game engine'(I think you call it) really shines with Ancient combat.

Haven't tried the Nappy version yet.

So many games so little money......

But 6 heroic leaders? Thats the amount that came with this set. So it seems logic they come in pairs or with 3 on a tile.

thats possible Smile I do like the idea of some leader with some extra's. maybe they are leaders, but come in pairs on a tile..

BTW, sorry for my worse typing Laughing I was typing it on my Phone but it has some difficulties understanding what I type (he wants to transelate it into strange dutch words) Anyway, most of you understood what I said, but this is the right message.
