Does having 2 tea time cards in the deck hinder indirect fire? Since turns last longer do you need to adjust the arty? Anyone have any thoughts on this? No using 2 Tea Break cards doesn’t affect indirect fire. Turns aren’t necessarily lasting longer, it just seems that way. Using two cards simply i...
Interesting picture. Only the soldier on the left seems to have a gas mask in his bag given the classic goggle eyed shape. The others seem to be using them for carrying other stuff, one looks like a flask! Can’t be certain though.
I would say No you can’t move AND spot on an Altitude or Formation bonus card. The description of what you can do on those cards in 4.1 on page 9 is pretty specific, it’s move or spot. Section 6.1 is the general rule for handling spotting, but makes no mention of these bonus cards. I don’t think tha...
I don’t recall seeing an official ruling on this, but we have always played the firing in such a case as being simultaneous.

Very interesting about the rear mount on the SdKfz 251/1 being for anti-aircraft fire. Didn’t know that. I suspect it could be used for firing a cheeky “Parthian Shot” against ground targets as the Hanomag retreated, though the gunner would be exposing himself more than his mate manning the forward...

I’d endorse Robert Avery’s “modest” statement as to the usefulness of the IABSM supplements to CoC players. The various Blitzkreig Handbooks for example provide lots of extra background material in a single volume for each participant and provide a context to the lists in the CoC Blitzkreig 1940 sup...

We have used “If the Lord Spares Us” on numerous occasions to fight both Russian Civil War and Soviet-Polish War actions without any problems. We also use them for fights in East Africa using the amendments in an article in the WW1 Compendium. I have also used for battalion actions on the Western Fr...
Hi Erik, I think you have the older FAQ which did indeed say that. The latest November 2017 version is different. It should be stickied somewhere. You will find the answer on page 16, namely: A: The answer here, after some reflection, is to add up all the plus factors in favour of the target and the...

Late War Universal Carriers usually had 4 men, one of whom was the driver, so option A is your answer. Generally when dismounted the driver remained with the vehicle while the other two men crewed the Bren under the direction of the JL. The option in the support list for Scottish Corridor is for the...
