So far I'm planning to have an SL (maybe 2) with 2-3 sections of 1 Daimler armoured car and 1 Dingo sco...

Reserved action

Hi All, I admit to not understanding how reserved actions work. I'm prepared to concede I missed something in the rules. I understand that an Infantry section, weapons team or gun on overwatch has its actions reserved for spotting or firing. An AFV with an engage order also has its actions reserved....

Re: What a tanker house rules

Our last four games have been in 15mm, we used inches with no problems at all. We've played on 6x4 and 6x6 table. We use 15mm as I have masses of models from my FOW days. Our games were 1940 Italian v British; 1941; British v Afrika Corp; 1943 Russians v Germans; 1944 Germans v BrItish. Regards Darren
