Re: GE LMG Team Question

I note in some campaigns the German squad organisation is less than 10 men? Absolutely, squad sizes varied depending on the type of unit and period of the war. In general the squads shrank as the war went on. For example, the squad in infantry divisions dropped from ten to nine in '43 when they dro...

Re: Movement and Linear Obstacles

Situation 1: You've rolled a 5 for movement, which means that they guys on the far side of the obstacle can still move up to 5", but because you're dropping the high dice only men within 1" of the obstacle make it over. But there's nothing to stop the rest of them getting up to the obstacle, so that...

Re: Snipers under Barrage

Yeah, that does seem to be a case of just plucking a ruling out of the air. I can't really think of a good reason to treat a FOO and a sniper differently. They're essentially the same thing.

Re: Consolidated arsenal question

Interesting you mentioned "What a Tanker' should one use the 'Features list' as a reference to gauge if the vehicle is Low Profile or small? I wouldn't. Nick has applied a certain amount of "fudge factor" to the attributes in WaT. For example, the Hetzer is listed as "fast" even though it was woefu...

(It is a shame there aren't any - you've got AB and HaT in 20mm, but nothing in 28mm.)
The only suitable ones I've seen in 28mm are from Victory Force Miniatures, but postage costs from the US to Europe are nuts. I'm not paying more for the passengers than I did for the vehicle!

Re: Questions on Gerrman units

Sometimes you don't even need to do that. In 1940 Panzergrenadier Platoons from 1st to 4th Panzer Divisions have squads with just one MG34. But there aren't very many 251s around then anyway. Sure, but since the OP was referencing panzerschrecks and panzerfausts I think they're interested in late w...

Needs a L4 Big Man - Air Marshal Trumpstetter.
Except that you have to deploy him off table ("bone spurs") and he has no actual initiatives. Instead, whenever you draw his chit/card you have to make an actual Tweet about how badly the other side are doing.

Re: Why is Smoke Bullet Proof?

It blocks LOS yes, so you can't engage them with aimed fire. You could still put down covering fire to something you can still see or the smoke itself, or you could say your guys are firing but not roll any dice. It's a bit like the reduction in firepower dice you get from shock, your guys might be ...

Re: CoC 28mm British Halftrack

I agree, lovely work on the weathering there. Whats with the mudguard is that a field removed headlight? EDIT Must be my eyesight on the blog photos looks normal ;) IIRC the headlights on that kit are a pain in the *rse, I dropped one when doing mine and had to cover it up with a cam net. I also agr...
