US uniforms

A quick question regarding the jackets. The infantry initially wore the M41 Field Jacket commonly referred to as Parsons Jacket and later the M43 Field Jacket. The Paratroops initially wore the M42 Jump Jacket and later the M43 Jump Jacket. Now my question.. was the infantry M43 jacket and the M43 P...

Re: Early War Handbook Queries

Thanks Peter I see the error of my ways. I don't know why I compared the task roll for the placement of a charge to the trowing of a grenade. :oops:

So one activation with a command initiative = on roll on task roll and activation gone.

Re: Early War Handbook Queries

A demolition Team needs a certain task roll total to be met for the demolitions to be placed. So each time a team is activated it rolls a D6 which means to place a charge on a road or rail bridge the team will need to be activated 4 times minimum therefore 4 active phases rolling a 6 each time minim...

Re: Firing through members of the same unit

Ok now even Rich is doing blob firing! and not just that but he has the team hang back from the windows and has the entire section fire at a unit outside giving them light cover. Check Beasts of War Let's Play Chain of Command the collective pig farm game at about 31 minutes into the game. https://y...

What figures do\would you use?

In a section you have a rifle team which is made up of well guys with rifles so all figures would have rifles but for the mg team say with mg34 with three crew I would think to use a figure with an mg34 and one loading or one supporting the weapon over the shoulder or one carrying ammo box as his se...

Re: Firing through members of the same unit

I don't have an issue with the 2" rule that is perfect.Blob formation does not work for me either. I also understand one behind the other as in directly behind does not work because you can't draw a clear line to your target through your mates head but what if they form staggered similar to a bee hi...

Firing through members of the same unit

According to the RAW you are not allowed to fire through\past members of the same unit\team\squad. Lets say 6 man rifle team position in two rows one behind the other only the front 3 may shoot. In Bolt Action however all 6 would be allowed to shoot their reason being that during battle men are in c...
