Re: Thin Red Line Question

I agree with John and Captain Reid - TLR requires a Leader activation but “Sharp Practice” does not - it represents a unit that is faster than normal when firing/reloading.

Hybrid CoC with SP rather than IABSM (but never played the latter, so can’t say how similar the mechanisms are!)

Re: SP ancients at Partizan - info?

Yes, that was John Savage’s game - I’m sure he’ll be along shortly to elaborate.

Re: Barnsley Wargamers hybrid game

Hi Poiter What would you like to know? “The Trumpton Riots” was a serious simulation of a little-known episode in British history, conceived at OML6 (I blame Mike Whitaker and alcohol) and first played at OML7 this year. Partizan was its first public outing and we really appreciated the positive rea...

Re: German SdKfz 250 and 4 man Recon team.

Thinking about my experience of games at various TFL days, for introductory games of SP, I’d stick with 6x4 tables and 4 players, especially with a 3-4 hour time limit. But if you really need 6 players, 3 per side, might still be ‘do-able’ with the right scenario. Give the game a particular mission ...

Re: Shock and movement

No, whether or not you use one or two actions to move (or two plus the bonus movement action for Skirmishers), it’s still only only a single movement and therefore the deduction for Shock is only applied once.
