Re: CONCERNS WITH SINGLE-TEAM SQUADS

If the 2 team section is moving or firing as an entire section on a command die of 2 or a 3 it applies the shock exactly the same as a single section would, not by individual team. If moving/firing by team then apply the shock effect by team. That is how I have always played it. Interesting discuss...

Re: CONCERNS WITH SINGLE-TEAM SQUADS

An interesting idea, although it perhaps contradicts 4.5.7 as written. Admittedly, it isn't a rule I've seen used often, but it is used occasionally for good in game reasons (in the same way that multi-team squads don't generally split up unless there are good reasons). Maybe amend it to say they mu...

Re: Leader breaking with unit

I read 4.5.8 as meaning a SL is attached to any unit he is within 4" of - given that it says he detaches by moving more than 4" away. RAW then imply that if either unit breaks, he goes with them. Having said that, I would give the owning player the choice as to whether he goes with the breaking unit...

Re: Fisticuffs

From the FAQ, first item under Fisticuffs, 'As long as one man in a group makes contact, the whole group will fight.'

If you want to house-rule it in your games to account for numbers of figures in range, etc. feel free, but Rich's intention is clear, and very simple.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Jim

Re: looking for anyone wanting to sell 1:300 RAF decals

Hi, If it's 1:300 you're after, then I-94 do a set, and minibits carry them in the UK. There's also a company called Flight Deck Decals that do them, although apparently not a mixed single sheet. https://www.flightdeckdecals2400.com/1-300-raf-roundels Also, Tumbling Dice sometimes have Dom's Decals ...

Re: Eleven Questions that arise in the last games:

Hi, My answers:- 1. As per 4.5.8, being within 4" is the definition of being attached, so yes he can be. And yes, he is at risk of being hit if any of them take casualties. 2. The format for any crewed weapon is <name if weapon>< total number of crew>, regardless of the size or type of weapon. The e...

Re: Normandy Roads?

The French term for cobbled roads is pave. There used to be a lot of them, especially in the north of the country, but most of them were replaced (or just tarmaced over) post war. For some detailed discussion of surviving sections in English, you want to look at cycling news/forums, since the Tour d...

Only when Rich has been overindulging in the cooking lager - which is probably most of the time, come to think of it! :D

Re: Counting Leaders of Aggressive Troops

Remember, it's not '2d6 for a JL and 3d6 for a SL', it's 1d6 per CI - so if wounds have reduced their CI they contribute fewer dice. You would then have to word it as '1d6 per figure, plus 1d6 per CI after the first for each leader'. Apart from this one question, I would say that the way it is worde...

Wor Lard fit the fifth

Hi, I will be running Wor Lard again this year at Durham Wargames Group. It will once again be the Saturday after Salute, for those who remember things that way, or April 13th if you use a calendar. No details on games yet, I will post updates as I confirm them. Rich Clarke has confirmed he will be ...
