Big men activating other big men

Hello - trying to find an answer to this - can't see anything in the rules so I may have made it up or read it elsewhere - can the Company CO (Big Man) activate the Platoon commanders in his company? or is that daisy chaining and forbidden?

Thank you,

Re: Gembloux Gap Turn 1

Try digging a shell scrape in wood block after tabbing 15 miles. You won't be doing it in 10min, unless you literally mean a scrape and not a minimum 1 foot deep, that you can have two people lie down inside. Maybe 30-40 min in forgiving soil. As for a slit trench, absolutely no way you are doing it...

Re: Gembloux Gap Turn 1

Well I agree, it depends on your definition. A shell scrape or shallow foxhole dug in 10 min or less is quite different than a slit trench dug over say 2 hours.

Very nice! Really like the paint job on the hetzer. Happy to wait for 6mm buildings, still working on hedges and scatter pieces.

Medium or large mortars on table

Hello! Quick query I was perusing the rules and in the "recruiting your force" section under the British it mentions Mortar Platoon, with 6x 3in Mortars, 5 crew each. So far I had expected that other than small or light mortars (2in, 50/60mm) all others would be off table. Is that correct? Thank you...
