Re: Medic question

I’ve given Soviets the option of medics in campaign weekends. Don’t remember anyone ever taking one though.... :D

Re: Scottish Corridor Carrier option questions

Pretty sure the UC’s employing the Vickers to be fired mounted were only in armoured divisions, Vickers battalions within infantry divisions used the carriers as transport only

Re: How to stop battles degenerating into long-range shooting matches?

I think this is an issue that might occur more in pick up games than in campaigns. Protracted firefights are rarely any use to anyone in a campaign situation.

Re: Targeting Tanks with ATG's of Bazookas

[quote="Truscott Trotter" post_id=80962 time=1578099663 Personally I consider AFV's a lialiability rather than an asset considering you are likely to lose a JL as well as a support team when it brews up.

Re: Unit Facing

So the right way to read it is that figures within the same unit should be able to shoot provided the figure has a clear line of sight even if the gap is smaller than 2". Pretty much. I allow 2 ranks within a team for 28mm figures given base sizes/groundscale etc, but if turning in place to a flank...

Re: Unit Facing

It is relevant.
A unit turns 180 to fire at a unit to its rear. Fine.
It doesn’t then get to turn back to its original facing, if that were the case it would simply be worded as infantry have a 360 arc of fire. They don’t, they have a 180 but are allowed to turn.

Re: Ongoing Rule Clarification Thread

Put it another way: Why would they not be allowed to deploy into any level?
Deployment isn’t movement.

Re: How do you attack in this game?

It’s cropped up once or twice...I think we’ve just rolled separately. Another of those situations where it doesn’t really matter what you do as long as it’s applied to both sides consistently.

Re: Recce Troop

One thought on this and it’s something I’ve been meaning to ask the Lardies ever since I saw reports of Nick’s recce scenario. Would you play the deployment restriction of one vehicle per phase or would you give this type of unit an exception? I can’t imagine in Nick’s airborne recce scenario this ...

Re: A15 Crusader II CS?

Didn’t ASL have a rather clever rarity factor iirc?
