Re: JOP clarification

Like TT I have always played it that an enemy unit needs to remain on the JOP until the Turn ends for it to be captured. So no moving on then off again.

Re: Bloody Bucket Platoon force ratings

OK, what about the rifle platoon which is -2. Still just 12? Yes, it says explicitly on page 19 that all German attacks get 12 support points on the first time of playing on any specific battlefield. There is no mention that I can see of an adjustment depending on the type of platoon they field. Th...

Re: Artillery priority targets

I don't think it is gamey when it requires the allocation of an ADC to each battery to make it happen. To my mind that represents the Commanding General determining where the artillery are to focus their efforts that turn and issuing orders to the battery commanders to ensure his wishes are carried ...

Re: Bloody Bucket Platoon force ratings

Hi Greg,
No, the difference in Force Ratings is already factored in to the support points available to each side in Pint Sized Campaign scenarios.

Re: SP Ancients?

John - please do some late medieval - 100 Years War, War of the Roses etc - definitely a gap in the market for that period. Will watch for developments eagerly! :D Nick, There's already a Wars of the Roses variant of SP being developed. See this earlier thread: https://toofatlardies.co.uk/forum/vie...

Re: Multi-sided SP?

Potentially 36 Leaders would be a very big game and I think you would have no option but to play it as you suggest with each faction having a set of Command cards. Basically operating as Munin suggested in this earlier post.

Re: Multi-sided SP?

It's relatively easy to run multi-faction games if you use differently coloured poker chips for your Leaders. However, the usual advice for larger games still applies, having more than 4 players and too many leaders can mean long delays in players getting to act. If the factions are generally indepe...

Re: Artillery priority targets

I'd agree with PL, although unless each battery had an ADC attached the target unit would need to be a priority for one of them.

Re: Covering Fire

Yes, if they move out of the area of terrain covered then covering fire no longer applies to the unit. The enemy JL would need to order it to cover their new position.

Re: Rifleman - but what gun?

As has been said the German lists assume that the rifleman is equipped with a KAR 98. Assault rifles were relatively rare in Heer units. If I recall correctly there is a list in one of the PSCs or other scenario article which allows the possibility of a platoon choosing a couple of Assault rifles fo...
