Re: Retreat?

No Darren I don't believe so. 4c will apply as long as the unit has a Retreat status marker on it. If its parent Brigade fails its Command Test and becomes Hesitant then the Retreating unit cannot Rally and will lose a casualty as well. (See definition of Hesitant on page 35, seventh bullet point.) ...

Re: Deployment - Overwatch

Irrespective of whether the troops are deploying into a building or not, the act of deployment does not constitute movement and does not trigger Overwatch fire. Deployment also represents troops previously hidden revealing their presence. This has been clarified by the author countless times and is ...

Re: Leaders and Force selection

Hi Bertrand, 1. Leaders cost 3 points per Status Level, thus a Level II Leader costs 6 points. See the Generic Support Table on page 80. I usually recommend spending around one third of the available points on Leaders, that works out as 1 Status Level per 6 points of troops. It helps avoid poorer qu...

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.
