Re: The Scottish Corridor

Yep, I got thoroughly done over in that last game. That's probably fair though, the Germans had been on top for most of the fighting. Stealing a win in the last game would have been well cheeky! I've got to say, it's a touch campaign for the British, but I think I enjoyed playing Scottish Corridor m...

Re: 1940 Going with a Bang scenario - demolition question

I would treat this exactly like the "Task" rules in SP2, meaning that each team working on a task would get to roll its die and add it to the accumulated total. 6 men can wire a bridge faster than 3 men. Bringing more engineers is absolutely worth doing. Agreed, assuming you're only using small num...

Re: 1940 Going with a Bang scenario - demolition question

Just resurrecting this one after watching the GWB video on BoW Rich blew the culvert automatically when the setting task was complete, but according to the BK book p.24 <snip> I would always go with the book over a BoW video. IIRC Rich has said that the brief for recording those videos is "even if ...

Re: Eleven Questions that arise in the last games:

Hi there. In the last games there were some issues with the rules, maybe some could help a little bit 8-) . No worries, I'll see if I can help. 1.) Can a Senior Leader be attached to two different sections/teams/units at the same time if he is in 4" of each of them (that means if all units he is at...

Re: The Scottish Corridor

Well, remember this campaign? I've been sitting on the final battle report for far too long, so without further ado here it is. The final battle in our Scottish Corridor campaign. The Jocks won the last battle, if they lose this one they can claim a draw, but if they can manage to beat the Germans t...

Re: Normandy Roads

I suspect cobbles would only be in the very centre of villages, and it is very unusual for them to be anywhere outside of a town/village. If it is a road passing a few buildings it is likely to be tarmac/asphalt or dirt. Save your cobbles for churches, town halls etc. ^ This. Dirt roads were pretty...

Re: Draft list for Polish Home Army 1944

Maybe treat the mortars as off board and in the same way as Brit mortars in the desert with a smaller zone or as in BEF where they have less tubes? I would be inclined to treat them as a direct fire weapon. As gebhk points out, they didn't have the comms or training to allow indirect fire. I've use...

Re: Draft list for Polish Home Army 1944

Big thanks to TT for this as a player of the AK I go a lot of flak from some guys on this forum when I posted asking for help with the Polish Home Army AK To be fair, you got no "flak". You asked if there was a list. People said that as an irregular force it wasn't really a case where there would b...

Re: Draft list for Polish Home Army 1944

In a game where the 76.2mm gets 7 dice having an armour of only 9 means you have a reasonable chance of brewing up with a single shot I reckon "reasonable chance" might be a bit generous, make a few rolls. The gun will just bounce off or cause trivial damage almost every time. My general rule of th...
