Re: How many of my squad can fire, or how many figs per cm of front?

The larger the squad, the less appropriate a 'micro move' is - micro moves are not part of the game - and the more that proper moves according to the rules will be required. I'd still say don't overlap your bases, don't shoot through gaps that donlt exist, and choose your movement rate based on the ...

Re: How many of my squad can fire, or how many figs per cm of front?

Where it's not specified in the rules, and many players, judging by YouTube videos ignore it completely, I play mainy in 15mm and startd in 20mm, with figures that were group based. My riflemen in 15mm are single based. Back in the 1970s I receive quite a lot of British infantry training through the...

Re: Rolling 2s and 3s

Let's start with your second question. Teams are a lower level grouping than squads, used where the tactical doctrine treated a small group separately from the rest of the squad on occasion. So, for example, where a British section in attack would throw out the Been gun team to a flank to provide su...

Re: Multiple Bad Things Happen

Hi Kent, Fundamentally you've got it right. BTH rolls are taken for all bad things that happen, in the sequence they happen, as they happen. What I would say though is to check the exact wording in table 16. In CoC break and rout have slightly different meanings, both from each other and from other ...

Re: Mortar minimum ranges....not saying we should change the rules

MLB has it spot on. Allow for special cases like this in the rules, and wargamers will use them as typical. In this case, there are perfectly good rules for close combat, and the detailed mechanics are abstracted. In the and way we don't need to know which end of a rifle is used in close combat we d...

Re: FG42 on FSJ platoons?

This has been discussed a few times before, usually with the same conclusions being reached. A quick search on fg42 gives links to the previous discussions.

Re: Peagasus Bridge 1944

I’d suggest using the glider landing scenario in the Blitzkrieg book as the basis for the first phase. Be warned though, it was a company-sized action.

Re: Clear Basing?

The question I have always had is what do you do with the solid base supplied with the figures? Removing it would leave the figures only fixed by the soles of their boots, leaving it would leave a non-clear area on the centre of the base.
