Re: Question about removing shock

I'm with Seret. To take the rules to mean you cannot give your lads a pep talk before moving the section to the next hedge is in my view being obtuse. If you're burning two dice and no unit is being activated twice I see no reason that it shouldn't be the case. Would you allow a 3 and then a 2 to re...

Re: Medium Mortar Batteries

1) Yes 18" sides 2) Yes, a team under the barrage can be killed. 3) yes, 6" is guaranteed. 4) a barrage that is activated roles for casualties. A barrage that is not activated does not but it continues to be there until the FO is killed or the FO stops the barrage. And yes, It's massively powerful w...

Re: Questions

The rules make it quite clear to me that you're aware of anything on the table. So if the models are there you know about it. The rules also talk about deploy and may fire. Not fire, then deploy. So I'm with MLB on this one.

Some more post-game questions

Last night we finished our game from last week, with the result being a bloodbath for both sides and neither set of players feeling like they could do anything further. The Germans had lost 14 men and the British 11 but the force morale had been barely impacted. We called it as it had ended being a ...

Re: 20mm German SS Oakleaf - Opinions sought

Re: 20mm German SS Oakleaf - Opinions sought

They're nice figures in the picture but look more like Autumn to me. Far too orange a look for the summer oakleaf.

20mm German SS Oakleaf - Opinions sought

Looking for some opinions on whether these look OK. 20mm Xan miniatures bought through Empress. I'm trying to do Summer Oakleaf as the majority of the time these will be used they'll be in Normandy I think (need to work through both the Martlet and Scottish Corridor PSC), but I'm just not convinced....
