I spoke to Rich last week and he confirmed the entry should be read as Support Unit breaks not Support Unit Routs.

Now that seems perfectly logical, I have always wondered about why there was a difference roll for support units.

Re: Stuka for 1940

I think I made them all along the way;of course none were painted as well as yours. Great job! The Airfix new tool models are in a whole different league to those classic models of our youth. That said there are many of the old molds still in use. When I wanted to get their new Hurricane I bought w...

But If you've got a plastic one, why not convert it? May be easy.
My thoughts too, sounds like a fairly simple shape to make from a bit of spare sprue. The Zvezda figures are in early war uniforms aren’t they?

Re: Questions

Ok, but by that logic why can't you shoot at a deploying unit with overwatch fire BEFORE they fire on you? Presumably you know generally where they're coming from, right? I think that’s different. You can never fire first with Overwatch. It’s not a special activity that is associated with the use o...

Stuka for 1940

Now I know you don't require to represent the Stuka in a bombardment in the new Stuka Bombardment rules for CoC in the 1940 Handbook but I couldn't resist making one up to illustrate the pictures of the AARs in my blog. This is the new Airfix JU87. I've posted a blog post about it and also a bunch o...

Re: Questions

I’m inclined to agree and disagree. I see the logic, but this gives deployment a heightened status something similar to ambush while devaluing the use of a CoC die to interrupt. Surely the use of a CoC die to interrupt makes the interrupt something special and something that will only happen on the ...

Yes, I can’t wait to see his face when we unleash the new V weapons the Fuhrer has been promising, that’ll show them.....oh, hang on a minute, we’re four years too early for that...

Re: le Haut Perrier IABSM game in 6mm

If nothing else this convinces me that I should do IABSM in 6mm. I love the look of the empty battlefield and the space, it looks very atmospheric, all with some considerable help from that great terrain.
