Re: Advancing in Open Order

In the rules or not, play what looks good. Two inches apart always works for me. The more natural look of the top photo or the Napoleonic battle style of the bottom one. I know which i prefer :roll: https://i.imgur.com/YY4J4sf.jpg https://i.imgur.com/rnmh6Wn.jpg Except with 28mm figures it bears no...

Re: Shabby Nazi Tricks Off Table MG

I use off table MGs and ATGs all the time as a support option for all nationalities. It’s where they should be most of the time.

Re: Are Panzerschrecks too powerful?

I don’t have much of a problem as is. Once late war AFVs have got infantry within 100metres of them they should be vulnerable, and in an infantry game, infantry should be king

Re: Ambush with tank destroyers

I’ve done this an option for a panzerjaeger in a big CoC game. If they chose the pzrjgr as support, the defending Germans had the following deployment options prior to the game. Deploy the AFV in question as normal on a road with a command die roll of 3 OR Deploy as an ambusher as per the ambush rul...

Re: French Flamethrowers in WW2

Then neither side get them. Two patrols meeting by chance are not going to be lugging flamethrowers around! Exactly, or even a probe. Ft’s get dished out for set piece attacks... and very few units had them as even battalion assets. They didn’t just happen to be knocking about. There is an exceptio...

Re: French Flamethrowers in WW2

I have put up my house rules for them before, but they seem to work quite well. First off I don’t make them available at all unless the scenario requires it, so defenders will never get to see one, and attackers only if they are up against a dug in defence/town assault. Other than that: Can’t be use...

Re: French Flamethrowers in WW2

Even the Germans don’t have huge amounts, even late war. Looking at equipment returns for Normandy most infantry divisions might have between zero and 6 weapons. Occasional divisions get a few more (352nd had 20). Even in the panzer formations their availability is patchy: 21st panzer and 2nd SS app...

Re: Which support options have you never used?

Well, I guess there is an argument for a bit of “support creep” as the war progresses. A tank common in 1940 might only be 4 or 5 SP, while a similar average vehicle in 1944 will be 6 or7. Same sort of increases for AT weapons. You could up SP values even for pick up games by +1 or + 2 for late war....

Re: Visibility into building

Which is why no trained observer would be looking out of a window. He’d have removed a tile from the roof or an air brick or some such and be looking through that. If he was there a little while he’d have camouflaged the small aperture he had made. If he was observing through a window he’d keep 6 fe...
