Senior leader with 2 wounds in campaign

From ATSE: Leaders who are wounded twice in any one game will be removed from play for the next campaign turn, returning on the following turn. Dead Leaders will, fairly obviously, be removed from play entirely. Junior Leaders will always be replaced, permanently if they are killed, or temporarily i...

Re: Effect of Hand Grenades on troops in hard cover.

OK cool so the effect of rhe grenade fired by rifle is different than the same grenade thrown? You learn something everyday. I suspect it is going to be confused At least the accounts I've read of grenades thrown through bunker firing slits, windows, etc are for thrown grenades, not rifle grenades....

Re: Armoured vehicle forced off table

Making the vehicle immune to the reversing effect when it hits the edge seems wrong. At a minimum I think it should be removed from the table and at least be forced to redeploy onto the table, probably within 6" of where it left. That way there is some effect from the requirement to reverse.

Re: Selecting British Airborne Section with 2 LMGs from Support list?

So how about for 1943 Soviets for the Kursk campaigns. Their platoons have 2 sections with 1 LMG and 2 sections with 2 LMG. Obviously the 2 LMG sections would seem the better option in general. (They're all 8 men plus JL sections.) I'd certainly go for one of each if buying 2 sections.

Re: T15 Armament - HMG

Note that an HMG also has an AP value of 1 while the MMG wouldn't have any AP.

Re: Panzer Grenadier Tactics 1944

I think that there should still be some allowance for mounted passengers to fire on the (at half effect probably) as I suggested above to reflect the German tactics. Adding that certainly wouldn't be a significant change to the rules and might even be implicitly allowed already. Allowing Panzergrena...

Re: Close Combat 4 x dice to enemy player

To summarize, my interpretation is that a "rout" is an action to move precipitously away from the enemy, e.g. the 6+2d6 when outnumbered 4-1 for dice in close combat or when a unit initially breaks, or leaving the table when a unit is broken and a turn end occurs. Broken is a troop state like pinned...

Re: Mg on halftrack

If you look at the entry on the arsenal table it says "Top mounted MMG or HMG". The MG on top of a Hanomag isn't an MMG, so it's no totally clear how many dice Rich intended it to have. Some people go for 6 like other vehicle MGs, others go for 8 like the same gun when it's dismounted. 10 doesn't s...

Re: Close Combat 4 x dice to enemy player

Looking through the rules for all the uses of "rout", it seems clear that "rout" is separate from broken. Broken troops that will rout at turn end are just one case where a rout can occur. Others are from close combat as discussed from previous posts and also vehicle crew if the vehicle accumalates ...

Panzer Grenadier Tactics 1944

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsTudthlCik is an interesting video on youtube discussing the German 1944 Panzergrenadier manual. Acording to the manual, the primary combat mode for Panzergrenadiers in halftracks (gepanzert) is mounted with dismounted combat secondary. Given this, it may be time to ...
