Re: Hard copy or PDF

Both.

PDF for reference work, reading in bed, taking on holidays, while designing scenarios etc.

Hard copy at the table while playing.

i.e. what Mike W said!!

Re: FO team caught in own barrage - what happens?

There's nothing stopping the FOO under the barrage to activate and call to stop the barrage. I wouldn't allow the FOO to "walk" the barrage away from him though as he has no line of site and it's cheesy! As the FOO is a "team" shouldn't he roll far casualties separately and if there are, then dice t...

Re: Walking a Smoke Barrage!

Hi guys, It was a leading question because of a gamey tactic I faced in one of my early games for the probe scenario. My opponent put down a smoke barrage and walked it to the table edge AFTER he had driven a tank into the smokescreen and then moved the tank inside the smoke barrage so I couldn't se...

Walking a Smoke Barrage!

Here’s a question!

You call a mortar smoke barrage and cover an area 18” x 18”. If the spotter then walks the smoke barrage 6”, does the area still just cover 18” x 18” or, as it is smoke which doesn’t disperse till the turn end, does it now measure 18” x 24”?!

Gotta hand it to the pilot of the Camel - you couldn't pay me to go up in that string bag powered by a faulty lawnmower engine!

I don’t think we should be posting links to the electronic rules on open forum!

Re: Patrol Markers query

Gamey but potentially very stupid, because as soon as you have an inkling what he is trying to do, you should close up a free patrol marker to the locked down friendly marker, so that the 2 closest markers he has to choose from give him only one line of deployment. Secondly as the defender playing t...

Re: shock markers

I use the markers made by Warbases in the UK - either with or without casualties! I prefer the smaller 30mm marker as this is less obtrusive on the table. The numbers run from 1-12.

Re: Firing through members of the same unit

Surely there is a difference between “cannot be seen” and “cannot be hit”?! If a section is on a hedge line with some members within 4” but back from the hedge line but out of LoS then they could be hit by applying the within 4” rule. However if the split was half of the section behind a house and h...
