Re: Number of Bases

I suppose what I'm trying to get at, is the organisation on how to represent it on the table. If I went for 1 base per squadron, how would that compare to the infantry. as a standard sized battalion is 6 bases, when deployed in line vs the cavalry in line, should they be roughly equal in breadth? or...

Number of Bases

As a person who has just bought the rules, the basing element seems to be a bit lacking in detail ..... As we are settled on using 4/6/8 bases for infantry battalion sizes, what would you recommend for cavalry regiments. Should it be 1 base per squadron, or 2 bases per squadron, this is based on som...

Re: Targeting Tanks with ATG's of Bazookas

I almost feel embarrassed to ask this ...... but does a squad of infantry skirmishing out in front of the AFV give the AFV an "Obscured" target benefit? ie a low hedge gives this benift to the AFV, it doesnt seem that outlandish that a squad moving about ... laying down cover fire, grenades going of...

Re: Target Definition

I'm not sure that I agree with the statement: "Therefore only the leading squad will take hits, even if the following squad(s) are within 4”. This is important, as it stops a player from say, deploying his entire platoon and supports into say a 6” x 6” area, shoulder to shoulder, and claiming hits d...

Re: Targeting Tanks with ATG's of Bazookas

Thanks for the replys. I also agree about AFV's being more of a liability (especially against the Germans as their infantry AT capability is so good), and I agree that this is primarily an infantry game. But in this game I was the umpire. Theirs not much more that could have been done for the Sherma...

Targeting Tanks with ATG's of Bazookas

We had a question come up the other night around targeting enemy tanks when there is intervening enemy infantry between them Typically if an infantry team is say 6" in front of another infantry team, you have to shoot at the first team. If a AT Gun wants to target an enemy tank, but there is an enem...

Re: Takin gembloux gap part 6

I enjoyed watching the game, and I know that there were mistakes made but clarifications can always be sought on the forums here if necessary. I was wondering why Nicks HMG went behind the wall, where it looked like he could have manned the hedge row instead, and been a few inchs further back so tha...

Re: Tanks discharging Smoke

Thanks for the clarification OldNick, how do we know which AFVs have smoke dischargers .... is that the column on the Consolidated Arsenal table (smEDNA) and is the number the number of times it can deploy smoke?

Re: Tanks discharging Smoke

hand grenade smoke doesnt block los, it just makes it harder to hit infantry with rifle/mg fire

Tanks discharging Smoke

I have searched the forum, and found a few things on Smoke and tanks, but not the answer to the question I have. This is nothing to do with Smoke rounds that a tank could fire from its main gun, but where some tanks are fitted with Smoke dischargers for close in protection. We have a disagreement in...
