Re: Retreat?

Hi Darren, A Retreating unit halts at the end of its retreat move and remains in that position until it Rallies as under 4h when the Brigade secures an Obey Orders result in the subsequent Command Phase. At that point it becomes an Unformed unit and will need to remain stationary during the Movement...

Re: Too Many Rivers...

I agree with Munin. The passage you quote does not preclude the selection of fixed defences as a support choice. If that were the case it will normally specifically say so in the scenario notes, although sometimes this might be inferred if the notes say that the scenario is to be played according to...

Re: firing at teams in different cover

I think there are situations where a team in hard cover would qualify as the "better target" than one in light cover. For example, if an LMG team in hard cover were down to one man, with the rifle team still stronger and in light cover. I'd say the rule certainly allows targeting the LMG team. It's...

Re: firing at teams in different cover

Strictly speaking if the team in hard cover are selected as the target then any hits will be spread onto both rifle teams, not just one since both are within 4" of the target team. You would have to target the right hand rifle team to limit any spread of hits to it and the team in hard cover. Nor ca...

Re: Panzerbüchse 38/39 missing from 1940 Handbook

The Fallschrimjager Support list on page 103 of the Blitzkreig 1940 Handbook includes the Panzerbuchse 38 as a List 2 option as does the Luftlande Glider Platoon on page 104. As per the rule on page 83 of the Handbook, other German platoons can buy support from those lists for 1 point more. So it wo...

Re: Too Many Rivers...

"Consolidating defences" has a specific meaning in terms of ATSE. Like Chris I would allow the selection of fixed defences as support choices unless the scenario or campaign expressly excludes that option. I haven't checked Many Rivers to Cross to see if the latter is the case.

Re: JOP clarification

Agreed However, if you capture a JOP and then move off leaving no troops within 4" I see no reason rhat JOP cannot be used before the turn ends. You are not locking a dungeon door its just a peice of terrain. . The O group may not even know its captured at this point. I assume the end of turn is su...

Re: JOP clarification

I agree with Seret.
Moving within 4" does not allow the enemy to capture a JOP merely block its use, so why should moving within 4" allow a captured JOP to be recaptured? Makes no sense. Contact with the JOP is needed in both cases.

Re: Getting started with Chain of Command

I would use the Scenario 3 in the book and give your friend the defenders Good advice there from TT. If you don't want to have too much support in a first game either decide beforehand on a total or use Scenario 2 Probe. Most of the PSCs will have examples of these 2 scenarios if you're looking for...
