Re: Flame thrower teams, Close combat

Not sure what 4x means....4xd6 for each FT man? 8 points of shock, a 3 man team would rout! Sort of like Kamikaze teams or Berserkers even. At 3 points a pop, it might get out of control! John ps there was no plan for the FT tm to get in fisticuffs, this was just a what-if question. Clearly though t...

Re: Flame thrower teams, Close combat

Lots of good advice there. Which to go with, as just surrendering makes no sense?: Fight with 2 or 3 figures Not fight, and surrender if the grouping you are with loses the combat The 1940 Pioneer squad from the pioneer platoon at 7 points for a Schutzen platoon is a very powerful option. The gas ta...

Re: Flame thrower teams, Close combat

Yes this is going to be a tough one. I am big in to playing the RAW, but this makes little sense. I can see the differences in different armies when being approached by the enemy in respect to having to retreat or if being caught surrendering especially if isolated. This flamethrower team however wa...

Re: CONCERNS WITH SINGLE-TEAM SQUADS

14.3 SHOCK & MOVEMENT Any Team moving subtracts its current level of Shock from the total number of pips rolled for movement. A Section with two Teams, one with four points of Shock the other two points, that rolls a total of 12 for movement will only actually move 8” in open terrain if the player ...

SL activating from outside a bunker

I thought I would follow up Greg's Flame thrower question with a question about a SL activating a team within a bunker. We played it that a SL unless attached to the team (within 4") could not activate the MMG team within the bunker, I known I had played it this way in our first 2 1940 Belgian games...

Re: Flame thrower teams, Close combat

Good questions Greg, I really did not believe that I could move and fire with the FT team, but it seems you can. In respect to your question about the close combat here is the relative FAQ: A: Windows and closed doors constitute a clear path if the attacker wants them to do so. Open doors always con...

Re: Many Rivers to Cross AR

Thanks, I will have to see how it goes. Each camapign has multiple platoons especially the Bloody Bucket. I am hoping to be able to track things on my blog rather then use SS's as I have done things in the past but it may become a little confiusing.
