Ambush Rule Query

My panzerschrek teams uses a CoC dice to employ the ambush rule and brews his Sherman... But he's got another Sherman on overwatch that gives me the good news - it's 3 points of shock so they're pinned. So do the schrek team leave the table, having done their ambush turn or are they literally pinned...

Re: Hornblower / Aubrey type antics

just adding a quick note - yes I often talk to myself :lol: the 2017 Xmas Special has a very good little SP2 campaign 'Lion de Mer', about a French invasion of Sussex, which has some interesting rules in it. Though of course the 'tribes' in this scenario are French sailors ashore rather than British...

Re: Hornblower / Aubrey type antics

Baron ! you are erudite as always, even if answering question I didn't ask ;) Yes indeed other infantry types could indeed be put ashore, and I have bought a couple of dozen Perry figures in round hats in the hope I can land them somewhere in the Mediterranean or Caribbean. The scope for possible ac...

Re: Hornblower / Aubrey type antics

Nice one Capt Reid - very useful. That 32lb Carronade looks like a bit of a Death Star!

Hornblower / Aubrey type antics

Hi guys, I'm aiming to do some SP games in the 1790s or early 1800s featuring landing actions by RN/RM forces against enemy held coasts - storming a battery, rescuing a prisoner or burning down stores, that type of thing. I'm planning initially to pit my troops against revolutionary French. Searchin...

Re: Are Panzerschrecks too powerful?

Seret, good news and bad news - I am retreating from my view that those German hand held anti-tank weapons are too powerful, but not because of your interesting explanations! I am five games in to the Bremen campaign during which my opponent has fired about six panzershreck rounds and eight or nine ...

Re: 28mm MDF Buildings for Normandy

Hi Ed, I would recommend you look at Empires at War https://empiresatwar.co.uk They've got some very nice buildings, reasonably priced, can be supplied pre-painted (and indeed pre-assembled), and the service is excellent. If you want wrecked buildings he also does wrecked versions of most of his int...
