Re: British Infantry Countercharge, difference in wording

Never noticed that before. The general rule on page 46 allows the British to counter-charge an unformed attacker irrespective of the attackers formation which to my understanding accords with British tactical doctrine and that's how I've always played it. The optional rule on page 99 would seem to l...

Re: Crew - what can they do

Hi Brian, Just be aware that Nick's elegant suggestion when applied to an ad hoc team created during the game means that the Team must remain more than 4" from its parent squad or it will be absorbed back into its original structure. In a campaign the Platoon Commander is free to restructure the pla...

Re: Crew - what can they do

Hi Brian, The weapon crewmen are there to serve the weapon and essentially that's it. You normally would use the spare rifleman in most Panzergrenadier LMG teams for other things like throwing grenades or firing Panzerfausts. However, in Operation Martlet the platoon is under strength so in the abse...

Re: 100 Days scenarios - Arriving Off Table Reserves

Yes troops classified as "Off Table Reserves" need to be activated and brought on table through the tasking of 2 ADCs once they arrive off table. However, the ADCs associated with them are available from the outset of the game but only available on a 5 or 6. The total number of ADCs is a reflection ...

I'd be inclined to have them brass up the spot the AT team fired from with a bit of "covering fire".
Same.
Me too!

Re: 100 Days scenarios - Arriving Off Table Reserves

Hi Mart, Haven't checked the specific scenario, but the rule on Reinforcing Brigades on page 23 of the rulebook seems quite clear that scheduled reinforcements arrive automatically on the turn specified. They are not considered to be reserves but operate normally on arrival so you do not have to all...

Re: Movement

A unit can wheel, which means one flank corner remains stationary while the rest of the unit rotates/swivels around that fixed point at normal speed, to whatever angle it can achieve with its movement. This can be more than 45' and I suspect is what the Highlanders may have done in the video. Depend...

Re: Movement near the edge of a woods.

I suppose one could instruct the troops to "advance until you can just see out of the forest.". But I'd probably only allow it with a 1d6 movement, where they're taking their time and being cautious. No you can't do that under the rules. You can only declare the intention to stop at a specific reco...
