Re: Abbeville 1940 PSC

The woods tend to go all the way to the bottom of the table. I'm fairly sure that was the way Travis set his table up. Yeah TT - the victory conditions are always a bit tough to gauge unless the campaign has been played a couple of times. The only thing I'd change would be to add an 8th turn to the ...

Gembloux PSC Twin MGs

Just a quickie. I see the German Pz1 and III are noted as having twin MGs in the arsenal table. I'm assuming that is 6+2 firepower (+2 for the extra barrel) rather than 12 FP dice.....

Abbeville 1940 PSC

Hi all, This has been floating around on Facebook for a while but I don't think Travis ever posted it here. So for all you non-facebook people here it is: The PSC can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3hytbal0bw4111w/abbeville%201940%20-%20pint%20sized%20campaign%20v2.4.pdf?dl=0 Travis and hi...

Re: 4 Flags

Thanks guys.

Contrarius - that's a damned fine idea :D (although marking cards does seem a little dodgy!).

4 Flags

I don't know about everyone else but I often find that the 4 Flag rule is too powerful and players tend to wait for the 4th card (me included) rather than spend them on something else such as a Crashing Volley, Step Out or Drill. The quality of troops in SP2 is also reflected in their ability to do ...

Re: AP against Bunkers

AP was used in Burma from M3 Lee/Grants to suppress Japanese bunkers. HE was used until the assaulting infantry was in close then AP was used to avoid friendly fire while continuing to suppress the target. Those were mainly earth and log affairs but many had tunnels and shelters built in. The idea w...

Re: Pint Size Campaign with Big coC

Hi Marco, We've played a few games as Big CoC including a small Pomeranian campaign and some scenarios from the Serafimovich PSC. Assuming both sides are using the same number of platoons, I'd adjust for the force ratings but wouldn't adjust the scenario support points. If you feel you need to add a...

Re: 29 Let's Go Counter-Attack Question

However, the US doesn't have the men's opinion, Well colour me orange and call me Captain Carrot! I've always missed the 'only Colonel Goode's opinion matters thing.... despite multiple running. However if you look at page 14&15 of ATSE, avoiding battle by giving up the ground without a fight means...

Re: 29 Let's Go Counter-Attack Question

Personally I'm not too concerned about this counterattack and leave thing.... I'm just struggling to see the benefit. All the Germans are doing is throwing the US a win for very little advantage. If the German wins a game and counterattacks they should have enough to make a decent game of it. If the...

Re: Firing through members of the same unit

Hi Greg, this is a common question on the forum and it's been debated at length. You'll get a few different answers for this I suspect (and theories, separation distances and so on). The answer to this was actually in the original FAQ, although it appears to have been missed off the updated one. See...
