Re: question in regards to 2" mortar smoke

I would have no problem firing it as the LOS is not blocked. John , even though the rest of the crew with the ammo are in smoke that blocks LOS, would not the crew not be able to find the shells and the loading breech? The smoke might block LOS to the gun but the troops within and in such close pro...

Re: Any one

I’ve played using Aussies in both Pacific and North Africa TOS. They play as good as any platoon. Play to their strengths, good Command and Control with the two Snr Leaders. The 2 inch mortar is a real asset. Ultimately however it comes down to the player,... The list for Nth Africa / Western Desert...

Re: At the risk of sounding like a d@#k,...

Hi Scott, I'd also be inclined to make the German Pioneer Platoon scenario specific and balance out the benefits by giving the opponent his pick of fixed defences, bunkers and the like for the Pioneers to practice their arts on. But not pick up games against regular defenders. :-) John I agree,... ...

Re: Starting out

Can I activate the section (because a 3 means I can activate the Jnr Leader & the SECTION) Strictly speaking a 3 means you activate just the Junior Leader. The JL can then use his initiatives to activate the section. The only command dice that activates a section directly is a 2. As I’ve suspected

Re: Starting out

I believe the answer is that, if you use a 3 to activate the JL and he spends both his CIs on Concentrated Fire, the rifle team do nothing. I think the exception to this is at the point of Deployment where the rifles *do* get to fire because, at this time, they are under 'perfect control'. Where do...

Re: Starting out

Question! I have a die roll of 3 which I wish to use to activate a British Section. Can I activate the section (because a 3 means I can activate the Jnr Leader & the SECTION) and subsequently use two command initiatives to invoke my National Characteristic ‘Concentrated Fire’ using the Jnr Leader (b...

Re: At the risk of sounding like a d@#k,...

I would personally prefer that costings for support options did not take into account "rarity"; I think that some of the published material sometimes applies that (eg: making the AVRE cheaper in Op Martlet because they were commonly available for that operation). That said, I do like the rule in th...

Re: At the risk of sounding like a d@#k,...

OK,.. So after reading through the thread provided by John, I’ve concluded I’m just going to ‘house rule / muddle through using my own research and best guesses. Some points of contention have what I consider ‘Obvious’ answers (1 not 4HE for a two pounder Tank gun) and others are just beyond me so w...
