Re: placing fixed stuff - entrenchments, minefields, roadblo

I was thinking that the placing of a minefield under an opponents JOP goes against the idea of what JOP'S represent. Rich has repeatedly said that the JOP is an area that your forces have a safe route to where they can deploy quickly and safely. The middle of a mine field does not seem to be a safe...

Re: placing fixed stuff - entrenchments, minefields, roadblo

My problem with placing road blocks anywhere on the table is that if they are placed on a road on the enemies side of the table it would mean they have a problem moving their vehicles onto the table wouldn't it? The same could be said for minefields, just load up the road with these obstacles and e...

Re: placing fixed stuff - entrenchments, minefields, roadblo

As was pointed out by someone in another thread it seems odd that you can place a minefield under a JOP? You could, but why would you other than as a means to protect your own JOP. A minefield is only 6" square and even green troops could still use the JoP to deploy outside the boundaries of the mi...

Re: Deploy and Activate?

Jump-Off points are a trade-off between playability and Fog of War - and represent your own rear area. If anything, having enemy troops that close to your rear area should disorganise YOU. I also don't like treating Jump-Off points as an artificial objective. I think they should displace as soon as...

Re: small arms fire vs soft skins

The To Hit rolls. If the firer is lucky it means that he may have hit something vital causing damage to the vehicle, otherwise its the occupants who suffer.

Re: Halftracks and mounting weapons.

The latter, but you should be able to use your CoC dice to invoke the "intercepting kestrel" rule.

Re: Getting Reinforcements Is it Impossible

Old Guy,
Rather than tweaking the battle results why not just allow the players to dice for a reinforcement unit during the winter! I doubt it will break the game.
Mind you I say that having had to cancel my first ever game of Dux last week, so ignore me if this is too heretical.

Re: small arms fire vs soft skins

No problem it's easily done, especially in the middle of a game.

Re: placing fixed stuff - entrenchments, minefields, roadblo

The problem isn't where but when. Could be nasty if they were placed after drop of points are placed. It's another missing rule, we just went with placing after placing terrain. Actually it isn't a missing rule, just one that hasn't been read. Take a look at page 81 which covers the placing of mine...

Re: small arms fire vs soft skins

Take a look at 9.1.4 which covers the situation you are referring to. If the infantry roll sufficient 6s to hit then you refer to the Soft-skins and jeeps table.
