Re: IABSM: Izdeshkovo (3rd time!)

Hi Carl K picked up the rules very quickly. Once you have the concept of Actions understood, everything else is really just a matter of common sense (e.g. don't get caught in the open if you're going to be shot at) and a bit of technical knowledge (this tank is stronger than that tank in terms of gu...

IABSM: Izdeshkovo (3rd time!)

I’ve decided to play through the Vyazma or Bust! early war eastern front campaign with K., Daughter #1’s boyfriend, trapped with us for the duration but now an avid wargamer. I was looking forward to this game, especially as K. had been happy to let me have the Soviets. Unfortunately, it was to be o...

Re: Continuing close combat

I discount the movement but maintain the terrain.

Re: Measuring movement distance blind

As long as you keep the orientation of the Blind the same and measure from the same point, then it doesn't matter.

Sneaky people, and you know who you are, have been known to change the orientation of a Blind during its movement to gain or lose a few inches!

Re: Can a blind go on overwatch??

Not specifically mentioned in the rules.

So up to you.

Generally I allow it for stationary Blinds but not moving Blinds: the latter supposedly representing a unit of men formed for quick marching rather than a group of men hunkering down behind cover.

Re: Di di mau card

Yes.

And I think it badly named. Di di mau means to leave quickly or, in some contexts, hurry up.

I prefer to use Fade suggesting the unit melts back into the undergrowth, hence the extra Blind.

Re: IABSM version 2 or 3?

HI To Add to what John has said, I would say that the only thing version 3 omits is Force Morale rules i.e. a mechanism that allows you to judge that a battle is ended rather than having the losing side always fight it out to the last man. Fortunately that has been taken care of in one of the Specia...

Re: close combat

Yes: you can lead more than one squad into Close Combat: any unit roughly within 4" of contact.
No: you just use their level.
No: anytime they are in combat.
Big Men can charge on their own if they want to!
