Re: Martian wars

Haven't had mine through yet, and will properly stat the sides once I get them, but tech level 0 for the humans and 2 for the Martians seems right to me. I'd differentiate between the Americans and the British with strike and armour values rather than tech level.

Re: basing for Q13

I base normal sized individual 15mm figures on 5p pieces, bigger ones on 1p pieces and twos or huge figures on 2p pieces. Otherwise I use pre-cut bases from all sorts of manufacturers: whatever fits what I want to do with the figures.

Bashnya or Bust! Scenario 2A: The Playtest

Taking advantage of the long weekend, my long-time opponent, Neil, and I decided to play-test another scenario from my forthcoming late war, eastern front scenario book for I Ain't Been Shot, Mum!: Bashnya or Bust! The Germans had lost the first encounter, scenario 01, so the next in the campaign wo...

Re: Split Fire

Count the number of figures firing in each direction, use that to see how many firing dice they have. So if you have unit whose Actions are as follows: 1-3 figs: 0 Actions 4-5 figs: 1 Action 6-7 figs: 2 Actions 8 figs: 3 Actions And you have four men firing in each direction, then each bit of the un...

Re: Scenario database??

As Derek says, I'm still writing Bashnya or Busy. Im on scenario 19 out of 31, so about a month away from release.

Re: Scenario database??

Which of the scenario books have you got? The Welsh Guards one has lots of armour in the later war games; as does Blenneville.

And,to wet your whistle, my new one, Bashnya or Bust! , late war eastern front, is also quite armour heavy.

Re: Close range shots, cards & getting clobbered

I think I'd allow the Blind to deploy in a 'sensible' fashion I.e. Nothing to game-y! As for the MG platoon caught unawares, well if they rolled poorly for spotting, it does mean that they were eating, sleeping, listening to the radio, playing footy etc. maybe even mistook the enemy for another Germ...

Re: Close range shots, cards & getting clobbered

If a Blind is close assaulted, deploy it immediately and fight as normal. As for the close-ness questions, I would certainly fight anything at 4" or less as a close assault, remembering that close assault doesn't necessarily mean hand-to-hand, just close...and for a rifleman, close is easily 4" or 2...
