Re: Starting out

I believe the answer is that, if you use a 3 to activate the JL and he spends both his CIs on Concentrated Fire, the rifle team do nothing. I think the exception to this is at the point of Deployment where the rifles *do* get to fire because, at this time, they are under 'perfect control'.

Re: At the risk of sounding like a d@#k,...

I would personally prefer that costings for support options did not take into account "rarity"; I think that some of the published material sometimes applies that (eg: making the AVRE cheaper in Op Martlet because they were commonly available for that operation). That said, I do like the rule in the...

Re: EW Brit Platoons. Download v 1940 Handbook

I calculate the 1939 platoon from the book at -4 without taking into account the Force Morale track differences. The "Britain 1940" pdf download comes out at -3. So is that the 1939 Regulars you’ve calculated as -4? I’m guessing so as you’re not taking into account the new FM Tracker. Regardless it...

Re: Many Rivers to Cross AR

With the stats for the A9CS as shown in the Blitzkrieg 1940 book (Armour 2, AP 1, HE 4, etc.), I calculate that as a list 4 support: 2 + 1 + 4 + 3 (for the many MGs) = 10 pts = List 4. I can't remember if Average speed adds an extra point but it would still be List 4. If you were to remove the HE (s...

Re: Martlet Turns Limitation

Entirely anecdotal but ... ... The grandfather of a friend of mine was an AVRE commander and claimed that they came across a Tiger behind a hedge that hadn't spotted them and which they took out with the mortar. Now, probably more likely it was a PzIV, if true at all, but my vote goes for "enough AP...

Re: To the Viktor Line - Campaign

Very small comment because I've not looked at the campaign in any detail (but it looks good!). Re: the lack of cover for S1 - if the attackers advance along the length of the table, there is indeed a lot of open ground to cover. But this scenario is set up as a flank attack and, with the free moves ...
