Re: First ever game questions

I have a slightly different interpretation of these... 1) the LMG squads should be treated like mini squads ie they move on the platoon card and fire with 2d6. The five men in the team make them very hard to get rid of! 2) now n/a 3) actually yes he can. Fire at him, calculate casualties, calculate ...

Re: Help with some questions please

1) Roll the dice as if both were out in the open and add 2 for having more than one target. Look at the fire table. Let's say it was an effective range shot, and you rolled a natural 10, upweighted to a 12 because of extra target unit. That would give you 5P for an great shot, and 1 for a poor shot....

Re: Support weapons in squads

Hi Jay I do this in two different ways. Sometimes I make the ML a company or platoon asset, and then attach it to the squad so it activates under their card. So a standard squad of 8 men would become an enhanced squad of 10 men. The squad has it's usual number of Actions (here for 8 men). The ML tea...

Re: Rules query regarding cover

I would roll the three dice, compare the numbers, and go somewhere in the middle. Or use an Okay shot. So, for example, if you rolled a total of 12 at 9-18", you get: Good: 5P Okay: 3P Poor: 1 So I would probably go for 3P as being in the middle of the two and an Okay shot. I'd further justify the P...

Re: Infantry close assault against AFVs

Hi I usually play that the squad's entire turn must be taken up with the close assault. That may involve using Actions to move into the 4" range, but the squad cannot do anything else except assault the AFV. It can seem very hard to actually do any damage, but remember that it is easier to penetrate...
