Q13: I Did See A Putty Cat!

At this year’s Salute I purchased a bargain pack of mdf sci-fi terrain from TT Combat and have spent the last couple of months building it. It was now time to get some figures onto the table and actually use the damn thing! The scenario was to be a simple attacker/defender game, with the Hauk (sci-f...

IABSM at Market Larden

My second game at this year’s Operation Market Larden (the Evesham Lardy day) was a rather exciting game of I Ain’t Been Shot, Mum. The scenario, written and umpired by Mike Whitaker, involved a clash between British and German reconnaissance forces somewhere in Italy in around 1943. https://www.vis...

Re: Anzio, mistake in cards for Scenario 19?

Hi Dan
I think I probably got that bit wrong: proofing the cards for every scenario is always very tedious and I don't think I was using the amazing Mr Hodge at the time.
Give the Americans a Co HQ, and delete the Mortar Bonus for the Germans.
Looking forward to the AAR!
Cheers

Re: Questions, night fighting

Hi Dan 1) Let common sense apply. I would say that most vehicles could shine a light if they want to...but, as you say, why would they want to? A bit suicidal! 2) Yes 3) IIRC there's no mention of artillery and mortars and Big Men firing illumination rounds during that encounter. The two sides liter...

Re: SP AA and fire actions

I think he would say that of course the vehicle can move and fire...but that it won't hit anything with any effect as the multiple gun isn't designed to be moved and fired...so fire away as much as you like, but you haven't done anything to the enemy.

Re: IABSM basics?

Plenty of AAR to read (over 500!) on www.vislardica.com.

They should give you an idea of how the game plays out.

Re: SP AA and fire actions

No. I wouldn't let it move and fire. Wasn't designed for that, and the rules state MMG/HMGs can't do so.
