Re: Death isn't shocking?

Don't forget that "dead" might not mean killed. It could also represent guys who have run off with no chance of rallying. The remaining men might represent a cadre still feeling confident thus no shock (and they might not even be aware yet of the runners).

My solution: create a blog and post your pix to it. Right click your pic from your blog to get its URL and use that URL...

Re: First Game Questions

When activating a squad to fire, and some of them can't see the target (obstructions or whatever) do they roll their dice too? Usually, what I do is ask the player whether they intend for the figure to be firing or out of LOS when they move the figure into position. We'll even nudge the figure one ...

Re: Vehicle Notes

I'd say an vehicle is open turreted if the open area is 1/2 or less of the overall vehicle area and it is armoured in some way on all sides. It doesn't matter whether the vehicle has an actual turret. Over that amount or it has an open side, call it open top.

Re: Carry On, Gaming

Infamy Infamy is far more memorable to a modern person than the “Disciplina et Virtus” title.

Re: What Scale for Infamy

This may no longer be accurate, but I read somewhere a long time ago that the average Roman soldier was 5 foot 2 and the average German warrior was 5 foot 7.

Re: Sherman Flail/other mine clearing additions

The more relevant question might be whether the tank crew believed it was possible.

Re: Sherman Flail/other mine clearing additions

Probably no shooting through the front arc while the thing is flailing. I'd be tempted to not allow any shooting at all while the flail is operating as the commander will be busy concentrating on directing the driver where to go. The driver would likely be completely blinded by the dust and flying d...
