Re: Crossing Obstacle & Light Infantry

Assuming it's not a High or Wide obstacle which take a whole Turn to cross, I'd say yes. They could still use their free movement action either before or after crossing a Minor or Major obstacle.

Re: Disciplinary et Virtus plastic armies?

Warlord Games do hard plastic Romans and Celts for their Hail Caesar rules. They include starter sets which might give you all you need. Here's a link to the Invasion of Britain set. https://store.warlordgames.com/collections/early-imperial-romans/products/the-roman-invasion-of-britain There are als...

Re: Faltering Brigades

Hi Tony and Mark, Small point of clarification. In that last answer I think there is possibly a bit of mixing up PC and GdA procedures for counter charging cavalry. In GdA counter charging by cavalry is determined by the Charge Procedure and no prior declaration is needed by the defenders, but in PC...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 05 10 19)

Hi Doug,
The 3 squads in the German platoon is correct. You are fielding Schutzen platoons which only have 3 squads, see page 97 of the Blitzkreig 1940 supplement.
A regular German Heer platoon would have 4 squads as you say but they aren't involved.

Re: Question re Close Combat in woods.

To answer your first question, the defenders get the benefit of light cover since they can still hide behind a tree as the attackers move to close with them.

As to the Soviet example I would say no, the Broken Ground penalty limits the Uuraah bonus.

Re: Faltering Brigades

You played the melee correctly. All units involved in the melee on the losing side suffer the result and will retire whipped irrespective of whether they started as the lead unit or supports. See point 3 on page 42. The brigade would then be classed as Faltering and require to take a Falter Test. Wh...

Re: Respective differences

For that firm an adjudication you need the rules author Dave Brown to express a view. Meantime just agree between yourselves or toss a coin.

Re: Respective differences

I didn't say that you couldn't do it, as I said in my original reply there is nothing I can see in the rules to prevent it and I've never seen it done. As you point out the Regulating battalion rule might limit it but there is no obligation to designate the front battalion as the Regulating battalio...

Re: Respective differences

That reply is already very interesting? I am the other party in this debate. ;) As my friend says, its down to the word Respective. My interpretation is that all the units must stay in the same relative position to each other during the charge adjudication piece. Only once the Lead unit has passed ...

Re: Catawumptiously Chewed Up?

Hi siggian,

Check out below the Faltering Brigade Table on page 32 for the various effects of a Catawumptiously Chewed Up result which is rather more than the two items you've found.
