Re: Flamethrowers in forests

There are rules for flamethrowers setting wooden buildings on fire, it wouldn't be too hard to do the same to woods.

Re: When can you fire on buildings

If you're playing with the optional rule for spotting in buildings, you probably shouldn't allow HE fire against unspotted troops. If you still want to allow HE fire against buildings, you could have the player secretly designate the building they plan to destroy pre-game, so that they can't react t...

Re: use of Panzerfausts

The thing is, neither 9.3.2 nor the FAQ response actually describe the firing of an infantry squad's disposable AT weapon at a vehicle, only 4.5.3 does that (by using a CI). Although the example in the FAQ references panzerfausts, it does so in the context of a "Panzerfaust Team", which sounds like ...

Re: use of Panzerfausts

As already mentioned, should the junior leader die or be unable to use his CI, a senior leader can issue orders to fire the remaining panzerfaust using his CI He can indeed but you only need a Leader to order a panzerfaust to be fired at a non-vehicle target. If firing at a vehicle it needs no spec...

Re: Questions after a game

Archdukek's got your answers! Just have one follow-up note: As a general rule infantry Senior Leaders cannot order AFVs since they are not within the chain of command so when an LVT is pretending to be a tank then I would say the answer is no. However, when it’s being used to transport infantry then...

Re: Crossing the Atlantic with War of 1812

North Star Military Figures have a small 1812 range (I'm eyeing their US Militia to add variety to my Spanish volunteers). The Perrys surprisingly don't, but do have Portugese (I don't know enough about the uniforms to comment on their suitability).

Re: Crossing the Atlantic with War of 1812

Awesome that you're making an effort to meet him in the middle on gaming periods! There's a War of 1812 Campaign Guide available in the Sharp Practice section. Short on uniform images, but there are likely other sources, and many Peninsular regiments embarked directly for the American continent from...

Re: Battalion level WW2 Now called "O" Group or the story of "Oooooh"

Ah, yep, makes sense they wouldn't want to convert if they already have some 15s. It's hard to balance the project you most want to do with the project you will be able to get the most games with. I love these 6mm, but rarely get to play with them, and wouldn't at all if I wasn't providing both side...
