Re: Effect of pinning on a leader

Leaders don't take shock themselves, but the first line of 14.2 says that the results of shock do apply to attached leaders. To me that means they're pinned or broken when the unit they're attached to is pinned or broken. So a pinned leader can't move and contributes half dice to firing but can stil...

If you get a second one that causes a CI loss that is applied again even in the same phase.
Yep, and of course for a JL losing both CIs actually means he's dead.

Re: Multiple leaders potentially hit

Yes, if there are two kills (not hits) then a roll of a 1 or 2 means one leader has been hit. Then roll to see which leader it is.

Re: Questions

Those wheat fields give cover to anybody who isn't moving. Deploying is not moving, because you can fire when deploying. Deploying troops just means revealing them, they might have been there all along. Moving is actually the only thing you're not allowed to do when deploying. The only time the whea...

Re: Ambush Rule Query

Yep, agree pinned troops can't move so they're stuck there and can't withdraw. Another point of shock or a kill and they're done. 29 Lets Go? I agree with John, the interesting part is if they take 1 or 2 pts of shock and then leave the table, what happens to it? :roll: I'd say the shock is gone. Th...

Yeah, don't give him the Firefly, double magnet to AT rounds.
Which is exactly why platoon leaders tended not to ride in them in reality. They might be beloved by wargamers, but the 17pdr Sherman wasn't nearly as popular with actual tankers.

Re: Positioning of Minefields & Roadblocks

Putting your own life on the line to help make others safer is no small thing. Well, it was just one part of quite a varied role and to be honest we made sure the amount of "life on the line" was pretty negligible. EOD work looks perilous and exciting in the movies. In real life it's often 90% digg...

Re: Open topped/open turret vehicles

Officially no, but there are probably situations where it would make sense to do just that. Firing down from an upper storey into an open vehicle on the street below, for example.

Re: Positioning of Minefields & Roadblocks

Well, I was paid to know about that kind of thing in the past, so I'll take a crack. Yes, a very near impact from an artillery round would cause sympathetic detonation of any type of mine. That just goes for any type of explosive, set them off close together and they'll both go bang. However... In p...
