Re: Area fire question ... is this right?

Many thanks for your detailed reply; makes perfect sense on both points. I'm only playing solo at present, so casualty assignment is easy :) I'm only just starting to play IABSM, having bought and read FoW, BA and BG (and ASL in the distant past) and I really like the mechanics. The card activation ...

Area fire question ... is this right?

Hi, I'm just starting with solo IABSM and decided to try the Christmas 2012 tank campaign for a but more speed. Here is the scenario: I have a platoon of Pz IVH tanks (with a level 2 leader) advancing toward a small walled Soviet farm (4” square wall around a wooden building) defended by an anti-tan...

City fighting

Anyone have an tips or custom rule mods they use when using IABSM in a dense city type scenario??

One thing that comes to mind is the 4" CC rule ... at 6mm streets are probably less than 4" wide! What about things like factories or lots of multi-level buildings etc?

Thanks,
James

Re: 50mm v 75mm area fire

I could be wrong, but only just ...
50mm
Miss 16.67%
Hit 66.67%
Crit 16.67%

75mm
Miss 30.56%
Hit 55.56%
Crit 19.23%

And the chances of an out-right miss are much higher.

Re: 50mm v 75mm area fire

You actually have more chance of missing with a 75mm than getting a great shot, because if you roll a 6 and a 1 or a 1 and 6, thats a miss but a 1 and an anything is a miss too :(

Re: 50mm v 75mm area fire

That's true, thanks John - just seems like a very small difference for a shell thats possibly 3 x the weight. Although I guess being a lighter shell, you may be able to fire more at the target in a turn.

50mm v 75mm area fire

A quick question regarding Area fire: a 50mm gun gets 1D6 and a 75mm gets 2D6. Roll a one and you miss. Now stats isn't my thing, but doesn't that make a 75 more likely to miss than a 50? More chance of rolling a 1 on 2 dice.

Thanks,
James

Re: Poker chip usage

I tried using cards, but shuffling 5 cards was a bit of a challenge, so I ordered some custom Likto counters which are rather nice.
