Re: Questions on "Pinned"

I'm surprised at that FAQ entry, and will almost certainly disregard it, at least for AFVs. Pinned infantry are deriving protection from their posture, and any movement would compromise that protection, but a vehicle can't "hug the dirt" in place like a person can. The amount of repositioning a vehi...

Re: 28mm mdf buildings

Can heartily recommend TT Combat, Warbases, Sarissa, and 4Ground.

Re: Shock on Armoured Vehicle

you could I guess make it closer to infantry fire and reduce the number of dice but keep the to hit roll the same This is how I'd do it - drop [-1 dice / 2 Shock] when firing on infantry (with either an MG or with HE), apply the [-1 mod/Shock] when firing AT. AT and grenades are the only firing rol...

Re: Cavalry base sizes?

I'm a heathen who individually bases 28mm cavalry on 40mm circles for skirmish games. I think units look much more organic like that, as you can have the horses and riders look more fluid and in motion.

Re: French Resistance list

Something to consider support-wise is that, while you're not going to have much access to heavy equipment, there are a number of abstract support options whose game effects would still fit for a resistance force. I recommend looking at the various new options in Blitzkrieg 1940 especially, as Franc-...

Re: New player question: Modifying lists?

Thanks for the help! I heard from another thread that you can skip forming a mortar team entirely and have one just allocated to the platoon, to be used like a panzerfaust. So it would take a CI (command initiative?) to get any two men to fire it? How often do you think I would be able to choose al...

Re: New player question: Modifying lists?

Various nations airborne or other specialist units tend to stretch the force list system a bit because they tend to have so much equipment available to them that what they field in game terms could vary a lot in practice. Some lists handle this by allowing you to purchase individual weapons (without...

Re: Command Staff Armament? (esp. Dragoons)

That's a good thought! Sharpe's always got a rifle, and Harper his volley gun, etc. I'm focusing on the guerrilla war in Spain, so I planned on some variation already to make them feel raggedy. What is the regulation issue, though? Is the enlisted infantry with swords mostly a French thing, as a leg...

Command Staff Armament? (esp. Dragoons)

As I begin my foray into Napoleonics by assembling some (very nice) Perry French Dragoons and Victrix Infantry, I've come up with a couple of questions about modelling the armament of various command characters. This is purely a historical/modelling question, the rulebook is clear as to how Leaders ...
