Re: Turn 4-Von Luck Campaign

I am pretty confident Mike had planned this out, it was pretty clear that the CO gave him an order to take the buildings out and then advance! I thought it was pretty clever.

Re: Turn 4-Von Luck Campaign

Yes...there were no troops in any buildings.

Not much I can say now, we can discuss it going forward. It was more the the Mortar that killed me.

I think there is a rule somewhere that says rubble is soft cover.

Re: Turn 4-Von Luck Campaign

Thanks Peter, we played it as Light Cover but not blocking LOS.

My opponent, Mike, had a novel attack plan that worked quite well. More at https://fu...

Re: My first Napoleonic

There is no universal standard for basing with GdA. For 15mm AB figures, I put 4 infantry figures and 2 cavalry figures on each 25mm square base.

Re: My first Napoleonic

I use AB miniatures only for my Napoleonics. They are more expensive. I think Old Glory has deals on armies and are much less expensive. Minifigs have their own attractions but not to me. You need small, standard and large battalions/regiments. This equates for most of us as 4,6,8 bases respectively...

Re: Forests vs Orchards

Thanks everyone.

This is table 3 of the Von Luck campaign. There is s large orchard and forest with multiple 2 story houses. It is early June so trees are full.

So I think the edges only for both forests and orchards for targets being spotted by troops in 2nd story buildings.

Snipers under Barrage

Do they test like a team when caught under a barrage or are they in someway magical and disappear? Can they move, ie not pinned like other troops?

Re: Forests vs Orchards

Thanks interesting, I had not thought about the canopy effect. So generally if I have you right troops in a 2nd story could see a target within 4" of the edge in respect to forests and 6" in respect to orchards (exactly the same as on the ground). OR are you saying that troops in 2nd story building ...
