Re: Green Troops and 4 Command Dice - A quick and easy solution to balance 6's rolled with 4, 5 or 6 command dice.

Although in fact the Germans in the recent 1940 BoW video get a red die, but ignore 5s and 6s, so does this further vary this rule? Hi Baron, Those Germans in the video are not Elites. The "Red Dice" rule in the 1940 Blitzkreig supplement is a similar but not identical rule mechanism to allow some ...

Re: 1940 Going with a Bang scenario - demolition question

I think they have just posted another Blitzkreig one but I haven’t checked it out.

Re: 1940 Going with a Bang scenario - demolition question

TT,
Rich has already confirmed elsewhere that he got that wrong during filming but as Seret says the BoW guys prefer it if they play on and keep the game flowing. So as ever go with what the rules say not what Rich does in a BoW video. :-)

Re: Fisticuffs

Hi Andy, Like Munin I do not ignore the rules on movement, but the rules on Fisticuffs are clear that if a Group makes contact with the enemy even by one figure then Fisticuffs occurs. As I said in my original reply I will sometimes move the other figures in the Group a little further if it helps cl...

Re: US Army in the Pacific

Hi Gunnar, I think you are being a little hard on the US Army, other lists allow you to add 2 SMGs to a platoon at a cost of 1 Support Point. Given Andy's reply I would be inclined to include the extra weapons into the platoon and recalculate the Force Rating. Substituting 2 SMGs in each of 3 squads...

Re: Under Command vs Attached

Hi Dave, That's not quite right, some attached assets with their own JL would only activate on a '3'. Basically in Chain of Command a Platoon commander as Senior Leader can command any men from their own battalion, essentially any infantry support weapons such as your Milan example, because they hav...

Re: SP2 Formats?

Hi Lee,
I don't believe that a tablet version was planned or released. The PDF version works fine on my iPad.

Re: Blinds...."for dummies"

Happy to help.
Once you've played the game the mechanics are straightforward and work very well., but initially they can take a little effort to get your head around if you are used to other rules.

Re: Fisticuffs

I agree with Munin. If one figure in a Group makes contact that's enough to initiate Fisticuffs between the units, I will sometimes move the rest of the figures forward into contact with the enemy to make it clear who is fighting who, but that's often not necessary. I think it's reasonable to assume...

Re: Blinds...."for dummies"

You don't start the game with the unit or Big Men markers/chits in the bag. They only go in when the unit/Big Man is deployed on table having been spotted or voluntarily deployed when firing or on Tea Break. The only thing on the table at the start will be the various Blinds for the attackers, basic...
