Re: Some dumb questions about fistifuffs

If you're charging unloaded it is indeed the impetus of your charge and the threat of naked cold steel that is important. Loaded or unloaded is no odds. It seems more than fair enough to me. Meeting an attack unloaded is a different kettle of kippers. Having a shot to fire into the face of an onrush...

Re: SP2 Hit Allocation and Saving Roll Situation

Nothing. But sometimes you have a situation where one group partially blocks another and the further group is the desired target. It just seems sensible to me to split hits in that sort of case.

Re: SP2 Hit Allocation and Saving Roll Situation

I'd play it as When the Formation fires, all groups share the hits When the single Group fires, it chooses the Unit it wishes to target. However if (and only if) that involves firing through another Unit then the hits would be shared. I don't think base to base contact enters into it at all. What do...

Re: Thin Red Line Question

It specifically says 'if loaded' so if you're loaded you fire and charge, otherwise you just charge. As you're getting 3 or 4 Actions for your card expenditure, I'd say asking my for another Action might be pushing it . . . There's also the fact that it says 'activate to . . .', which implies all ac...

Re: Thin Red Line Question

John's right. When it says 'with a Leader Activation', it means: You Activate the Leader Spend two cards Use the Leader to Activate the Unit using its TLR Characteristic. Nothing else really makes sense. Note that the Leader could use any other remaining CIs to do whatever he liked as usual.

Re: BIG Winter Wonder Lard - 29th Feb 2019 Bristol UK

Good to have you coming along, Mike.

We're up to seven games in each session now, so up to room for around 30 players.

There's bags of space at BIG so anyone wanting to run a game (either once or twice in the day) is very welcome to.

Re: Sharp Practice events?

I run some pure Sharp Practice events, generally French Indian War (1758-ish) or Peninsular War (1811-ish), mainly at Bristol Independent Gaming, but also elsewhere on occasion. These are usually weekends and increasingly based on 2 vs 2 games with around 16-30 players. 2 games each day, either scen...
