Re: rules for boats?

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...
