Re: Close Combat - clear path

Doesn't the rule about clear path just give the attacker the choice about entering into close combat? Otherwise, it is required whenever the two sides get within 4". In this case, the 2nd German squad clearly wants to join in and so it can. Clear path is really about whether the two sides can direct...

Re: Getting started with Chain of Command

The key piece of advice I have to all new players is to not be in a rush to deploy all of your units. Undeployed units are your reserve, and unlike many rules, they can swing the battle decisively with a key deployment. Additionally, when you deploy all of your units, often times you don't have enou...

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

I have a tonne of 6mm figures ready for action, so I'm very interested in these rules. I haven't found a good set of rule so far, but I'm hoping and optimistic that these will do the job.

Re: rules for boats?

Maybe equate each position to a team for BTH rolls and for pinning and routing? Routing would mean leaving the position and sheltering somewhere on the boat rather than abandoning ship.

Re: House rules for double moves and single sixes.

I think that's a perfectly reasonable suggestion, but there are some bookkeeping details that would need to be hammered out. For instance, would add the caveat that the adoption of that Tactical stance should happen at the end of the phase. Otherwise, you'd only ever get one unit's shot off at an e...

Re: House rules for double moves and single sixes.

One possibility that might work is to allow a unit after receiving fire in the first phase of a double phase to adopt a tactical stance in subsequent phases. This represents them looking for cover under sustained fire. If a unit was not shot at in first phase, it cannot go tactical in the second. Pl...

Re: M10 Tank Destroyer and Ramming
