Re: DO WE HAVE A SMOKE PROBLEM?

I suspect the issue isn’t the rule but rather a misunderstanding of the fire from the LMG. This fire isn’t firing in the sense of Fire Resolution as per the rules. This is firing that is subsumed into the Hand to Hand combat. Hand to Hand includes point blank firing, fists, Clubbed weapons, Knives, ...

Re: DO WE HAVE A SMOKE PROBLEM?

‘Based on Richard’s ruling back in 2013 (mentioned in a previous post) I am confident that smoke will not block LOS for Close Combat. This will allow LMGs to fire their 4D6 when in arc + attackers can use smoke to screen the approaches and right onto a position’. Exactly how i see it. The Close Comb...

Re: Pre Game Sequence

It’s not just the timing of Stuka attacks, but more generally significant field defences (wire, minefields, roadblocks?, and in some PSC scenarios terrain features, such as marshes). These need to be declared by the defender before the attacker selects support, and it always seems to make sense if ...

15mm Mini recommendations?

Hi
Ive got saxons and Romano British forces in 28mm but I’m considering creating forces in 15mm.
Apart from the Splintered Light miniatures would anyone care to offer a suggestion for a nice range in 15mm?

Re: Blitzkrieg 1940: Questions: Pioneer Squads

I’ve got real issues with the pioneer list. It’s ridiculously under priced (or over powered). A platoon of these guys can take three Flamethrowers for the princely sum of 3 support points whereas other platoons are forking over 9 support points!!!! As a support opting surely a pioneer squad should b...

Re: question in regards to 2" mortar smoke

I would have no problem firing it as the LOS is not blocked. John , even though the rest of the crew with the ammo are in smoke that blocks LOS, would not the crew not be able to find the shells and the loading breech? The smoke might block LOS to the gun but the troops within and in such close pro...

Re: Any one

I’ve played using Aussies in both Pacific and North Africa TOS. They play as good as any platoon. Play to their strengths, good Command and Control with the two Snr Leaders. The 2 inch mortar is a real asset. Ultimately however it comes down to the player,... The list for Nth Africa / Western Desert...

Re: At the risk of sounding like a d@#k,...

Hi Scott, I'd also be inclined to make the German Pioneer Platoon scenario specific and balance out the benefits by giving the opponent his pick of fixed defences, bunkers and the like for the Pioneers to practice their arts on. But not pick up games against regular defenders. :-) John I agree,... ...

Re: Starting out

Can I activate the section (because a 3 means I can activate the Jnr Leader & the SECTION) Strictly speaking a 3 means you activate just the Junior Leader. The JL can then use his initiatives to activate the section. The only command dice that activates a section directly is a 2. As I’ve suspected
