Re: Clarification on support team sizes

I have also operated under the assumption that JL commanding support options cannot command any other troops. Is this explicitly stated anywhere? That's correct, support JL only command its own teams. Chain of command... That's the case for all JLs, they can only command the men in their section or...

Re: Question about "Ambush"

No, I'd say that being Pinned means that they cannot now withdraw. They are stuck and vulnerable to further enemy attacks. Seems an appropriate penalty for trying to undertake an ambush in an area which the enemy has covered by an overwatching team.

Re: General Campaign Questions

I'd agree with TT about combining platoons. There is no hard and fast rule it varies in PSCs. For example, in Kampfgruppe Von Luck there is no minimum level of dead required to amalgamate two platoons but if you do so you reduce your ability to rotatine platoons. Any surplus men are still held at Co...

Re: General Campaign Questions

I would expect it to say in the campaign notes what happens to any excess men. Certainly in Operation Citadel it does. There the additional men are held as a reserve by the Company to replace future losses. However, in that case a platoon has to suffer 12 men dead as permanent losses before it can b...

Re: Breaking under a Barrage

My understanding is that they still run away in a blind panic barrage or no barrage.

Re: CoC FAQ

Only the Junior Leader can activate the other crew positions in the tank by spending one of his Command Initiatives when he is activated on a Command a dice roll of '3'. If the JL is killed or knocked out then the tank becomes Uncommanded and can then activate a single crew position on a CD roll of ...

Re: Step out question

I'd say no you can't combine it with other card driven characteristics. Yes to skirmishers adding it to their usual movement allowance.

Re: Official CoCulator

TT, Rich has commented before to the effect that the difference between the red dice in Blitzkreig and the 6th dice for elite units as amended in the errata is intentional. The truly elite units keep their ability to generate a Chain of Command dice quicker. Such units should be rare, however, and I...

Re: Help for a newbie at Fall In!

My understanding is that the Lard America guys are seeking to create the equivalent of the UK's Lardy games days, but adapted to the American context. One of the fundamental principles of a Lardy Games Day is that newcomers are very welcome to join in and learn the rules to a game they might never h...
