Re: Firing through members of the same unit

Ok now even Rich is doing blob firing! and not just that but he has the team hang back from the windows and has the entire section fire at a unit outside giving them light cover. Check Beasts of War Let's Play Chain of Command the collective pig farm game at about 31 minutes into the game. https://y...

What figures do\would you use?

In a section you have a rifle team which is made up of well guys with rifles so all figures would have rifles but for the mg team say with mg34 with three crew I would think to use a figure with an mg34 and one loading or one supporting the weapon over the shoulder or one carrying ammo box as his se...

Re: Firing through members of the same unit

I don't have an issue with the 2" rule that is perfect.Blob formation does not work for me either. I also understand one behind the other as in directly behind does not work because you can't draw a clear line to your target through your mates head but what if they form staggered similar to a bee hi...

Weapon and Crew thing
