Two quick SP2 Questions...

Ladies and Gentlemen, Two questions arising from a game the other night: 1) We had a lone Leader remaining as the sole (lightly wounded) survivor of a round of fisticuffs. What happens to him/her? Does he/she withdraw as per the terms of the combat result? 2) Cavalry in fisticuffs. In the same meleé...

Re: What scale and suppliers do you prefer?

I game WW2 in 28mm, with as many vehicles in 1/48 as I can. 1/56 vehicles are just too small for the most popular modern 28mm ranges. If I had my time again I'd probably have gone with 20mm for many of the reasons mentioned in earlier posts, but I'm too far invested in 28s now. However, for a North ...

Re: Early War Handbook Queries

G'day gentlefolk:

Quick question, how does one know how many Jump-off Points are required in each of the scenarios in the 1940 Handbook? It's probably blindingly obvious but I couldn't see any reference in the book.

Any help appreciated.

Cheers

Re: Tricksy Sniper Shenanigans

I would suggest that the existing rules for spotting snipers - i.e. they are hard to spot - imply that the sniper is already following reasonable fieldcraft and firing from a relatively concealed position (e.g. within a room rather than at the window through which he or she is firing). Thus I would ...

Artillery crew weapons

Hi folks, Rather than SP2 in particular, this is more a query for Napoleonics in general. Can anyone enlighten me on what, if any, personal weapons were carried by artillery crews of the era, in particular the various forces of the Peninsular War? This includes edged weapons as well as any firearms....
