Re: What does it cost for leaders?

Welcome to Sharp Practice. You will find the answer to your question as to Leader costs in the Generic Support Table on page 80 of the rules. Captain Reid has neatly summarised these for you in his answer. I would share his advice on the use of Status IV Leaders, best used with caution and only in s...

Re: What does it cost for leaders?

Greetings In scenarios you get the leaders for your chosen platoon as standard and then additional leaders from the support lists. So, p.83 gives a German infantry platoon with its senior leader and 3 junior leaders. P.85 gives the support list where another senior leader is on list two ie costs 2 ...

Excellent news, I will seek the out.

Out of interest, are the any high level details out there on Infamy, Infamy.

I have a load of victrix plastic Romans and Celts that might fit the bill.
Check out the Lard Island News Blog for some high level stuff on “Infamy, Infamy!”.

Re: Tactical stance

It’s still Hard Cover. The Tactical stance cancels out the heavy weapon cover reduction. There has been much debate about this in the past, but the conclusion was it was simplest to let the pluses and minuses cancel each other out then adjust the final cover by the outcome. I think it is now in the ...

Re: Lard Games at Shows

I would expect that the Lardies will be showcasing their forthcoming “Infamy, Infamy!” Ancient rules at the shows they are attending. Certainly John Savage has posted about his game of it at Vapnartak on Sunday.

Re: Visibility in woods

It’s as Allan says a reflection that the edges of many woods have denser cover because the higher light levels encourage more undergrowth around the trees. Once under the canopy the light is blocked so undergrowth is less and visibility better. That’s the principle, the reality can vary depending on...

Re: Cavalry narrow frontage

Hi Ricky, My understanding is that the -1 malus represents the smaller frontage unit being nervous about having to hold off possible flanking moves by the attacker. So I wouldn’t be too bothered about including a supporting unit which was on the flank but slightly to the rear of the main unit if it ...

Re: Tank kills

Re: Modifiers to Spotting, confusion

Thanks for the reply Jim. I can see that argument and it certainly keeps life simple. However, I think I’ll stick to how I play it which I think is more “realistic” if slightly more complicated. As I said in reply to Dan on Facebook, one of the joys of IABSM is the freedom to interpret the rules as ...
