Yesterday I received the Maxim Gorki module. Inside it there are reinforcement group charts for a CG. However I cannot find the rules for the CG. Things like CG length, VC and set up are not stated. Was this ever published? I'm wondering if it was left out of my module by accident.

Thankyou. I have got 12 pages of rules - non of them actually lay out the CG and so I guess the CG reinforcement group chart is for a design your own CG. Which would be typical of CH.

I believe that some of the scenarios use the charts to add units to the scenario. See scenario #3, rule 5.

Yes the big scenario (number 9) does too. But the charts also have a CG max column.

There is no mention of a CG included. It does include the charts though.

Contact Mark Porterfield as he is the designer and ask.

Hi Honza

There is a VASL map! - Thanks to Pete - Happy to play one with you (played two before and both were about how to use "massive" and I mean Massive Arty !!!)

It is true there was no CG (I dont play CGs but I did notice that this first edition was missing it) - The Chaps that designed it likely are still developing it

Cheers

Rob :)

I could be totally wrong but I have some vague memory that a CG would be in one of the future CH mags?

With regards to the Maxim Gorky historical package. The Rules for the CG are on scenario MG #9 Maxim Effort, it lays out the purchase schedule, points etc for the CG. Of course you could also use the CG rules pack to set up your own.
