Henry and Colin came around for another day of Cruel Seas gaming. I wanted to give the Vospers an outing for a change, so we had two groups of 3 MTBs conducting a raid on a German coastal convoy. I took the convoy, which consisted of a merchantman and a tanker, escorted by a Vorpostenboot and a torpedo boat. The Germans also had the possibility of some air cover.

Try using 18 dice + 15 points of damage for torpedoes

That might work Joe, I'll try that out.

I've found an online suggestion for Critical Hits with torpedoes I'm going to give a go as well.

Good Luck- let us know how it works. I don't get enough torpedoes to actually hit to try out any rules.

Nice report! I'm wondering if torpedo hits should cause continuing flooding damage turn after turn unless a successful repair roll is made.

They should. It is in Crueler Seas if it ever comes out.

Waiting is making it Crueler!

Tell me about it. Think I will give them 1 or 2 more issues and then say forget it

Meaning you will publish it yourself?

Joe Legan19 May 2019 6:18 a.m. PST

Yes. I will hang it on wargame vault. Probably ask 50 cents and donate it to our local food bank. WI. Accepted it for publication though so hope they will publish it soon. Just hate "keeping it" from everyone as I think most people will really like most if not all of it

Joe, I'm really interested Crueler Seas and to be honest I'd rather download it directly rather than have to buy a magazine I otherwise don't want! I haven't bought a wargames mag in over 5 years, they always seemed to have 0ne thing I was interested in and the rest was blaa-blaa!

Is your blog Platoon Forward?
