Pacific Theater Scenario Idea

Unread post by curtm1911 » Thu Jan 14, 2016 5:45 pm

Tinkering with a Pacific theater Idea. Any Comments/Thoughts/Howling Laughter is welcomed.

Aerial Recon shows a mass of hills to the west. High Command wants them cleared. Unfortunately, Aerial photos fail to show what is under the trees & hidden in them thar hills....thanks to dano for the trenches. I have statted them like Pillboxes, Cover Terrain & a +1 to cover rolls.

Also my thanks to the Secret Santa of the Forumini for the Japanese Trucks that will be used in this scenario. Working up the builds now, so far I am looking at about 350 pts. of Japanese Banzai Fun!!! I will post the builds when I have them figured out.

Map Configuration:
Charlie 2/upper left corner, name in lower left corner
Able 2/upper right corner, name in lower left corner
Able 1/lower left corner, name in upper right corner
Baker 2/lower right corner, name in upper right corner

3/29/2016: Map Able 1 replaces Dog 2 in lower left corner, pics later

...to be continued

I'm still working on this. It will be a compilation of several battles in the PTO & some hypothetical. Japan has Transport units & some captured French vehicles. Dano's trenches & the Caves & Tunnels houserule from Polish Cavalryman on the forumini will also be incorporated into this "A little bit of everything in the PTO". It is also developing into a 2 part scenario.

Stay tuned, it's getting interesting

Quick Update:

The couple playtests so far have shown an imbalance US to Japanese forces. I looked in the Forumini Marketplace & found some brave Sons of Nippon to add to the Japanese Order of Battle. :D

Also, I am making good use of Formations to create both armies. The point savings by doing this allows for some interesting & seldom used units to be included. They might be purchased as Formations but deployment will not be as Formations. It is simply a point saving measure.

Anyway, when the additional forces arrive, more playtesting & then posting this scenario.

to be continued...

Nothing wrong with formations, we still allow their use.

Most of them not only save points, many include obscure units that rarely if ever see play. I think they add to a player's options & make you think instead of just making Power Builds & crushing everything in sight :D

Here is a Formation from Set II of the formations that has an "Obscure" piece that might never see play, the 75MM Recoilless Rifle. I got 2 of these formations for this scenario :D but not just for this unit

US Assault Detachment:
1x RDC
1x Flamethrower
1x 75MM Recoilless
1x Thompson
1x Jeep
1x M1 Garand
as formation, 24 pts. Seperate 33 pts.

I am also using some Infantry Platoons for the US from the Expanded Rules. Same for Japan with formations from both sets. (a big thanks to Dennis from the forumini for set 2)
