Re: Do Vehicles count as a Team when trying to win a "Probe" game ?

Yes, I'd count a vehicle as a team for the purposes of winning the Probe scenario. It's the foundation of the Blitzkrieg: driving an armoured force through the enemy to get to the rear areas without stopping to mop up. If anything, an armoured car or tank rampaging through the rear areas is even mor...

Re: PACIFIC WAR BAG THE HUN

Capt Fortier, the white liquid is for sanitizing your exterior while the brown liquid is for sanitizing your interior. Of course, this does not explain why he is getting the two mixed up.

Re: clarification request on 9.1.1 hits on leaders and forward observers

Why is it no? Because of the Lardy motto: playing the period, not the rules. I don't think it is detailed in the rules or FAQ. It is likely that Rich did not think it necessary to spell out in the rules because distinguishing between these two types seemed obvious to him. I suppose that left to thei...

Re: clarification request on 9.1.1 hits on leaders and forward observers

TT is right. There's a difference between trying to target one man amongst a group of similar sized men and shooting at a man or a very large metal box.

Re: Horse Artillery

I think there was effectively no real difference between horse artillery and foot artillery in the American Civil War.

Re: Withdrawing at the end of the turn?

I think historically that AT guns were very vulnerable once they had been discovered. Their primary way of surviving was to either ambush and knock their opponents out quickly or to be in such numbers that they would overwhelm the tanks (a la Kursk). It the scenario above, the PAK was already in tro...

Re: Question - The Lone Leader

I think TT, Monty, and myself (my post omitted any mention visibility because I was assuming that the section was visible (because I overlooked the mention that the Germans could not see the section)) are all saying the same thing essentially: If the rifle section is visible and in cover AND the lea...

Re: Question - The Lone Leader

While I can see a strong argument for allowing the targeting of the JL, I'd like to present its counter. By custom, most players have a leader dice for a hit even if he cannot be seen or even targeted by the enemy on the thinking that the JL figure represents the centre of his general location and t...

Re: Battalion level WW2 Now called "O" Group or the story of "Oooooh"

I have 6mm and 15mm. Of course I will use both, just not at the same time.
