Re: Out of my depth

Of course the 17/21st Lancers are a different story. 2 regiments amalgamated. Don't ask for consistency in the British army.

Re: Turn 4-Von Luck Campaign

If he came on with an order of 'level all the builsings' then I have no problem with him doing just that. Though if he changes to shooting at targets of opportunity before he has finished the task, I'd feel he was taking the mick.

Re: Turn 4-Von Luck Campaign

I don't have the rules to hand, but once a building has collapsed, it would be rubble, so still providing cover (consider Cassino as an example of this).

Re: Op Martlet - Splitting Panzer Grenadier Support

Re: About Leaders

I run a house rule that leader's status and rank are not necessarily linked. So you might get a Status 1 ensign with a trusty status 3 sergeant, for example. In which case the senior ranked (not status) leader would control the formation. And while the senior ranked leader in the force can order any...
