Re: Blocking entry roads with mine fields

Please look at the map for Flanking St Germain-Du-Pert in 29, Lets Go. the road entry shows the road edge at less than 1" from the table edge and the center of the road 2". Being a retired engineer, I scale all the maps to get the layout correct. I also use the center line of the road as my measurem...

Re: Blocking entry roads with mine fields

Many Thanks Rich and John. I can now move to planning without having to spend all my supports on mine clearing teams! In his defense, my opponent is a lawyer by trade and a tournament player (FoW) - he sometimes has difficulty transitioning to the "Play the period, not the rules"!

Re: Blocking entry roads with mine fields

I am a member of "that august group" and searched for some answer to my query but no joy. I understand that a single minefield is only 6" wide and one could normally come on within 6" of the road. But if one peruses the map in 29, Lets Go for the Flanking St Germain du Peut, It can be seen that the ...

Blocking entry roads with mine fields

I know this has been covered but after about 1 1/2 hours on here and the yahoo site, I could not find anything (the search engine SH**Ts). My opponent is in a position to place two minefields on the table edge across the only entry road for my two (required) tanks. the 12" combine width does not all...

I had a dream........

Things are bad when you start dreaming about this game! I awoke to a very pleasant feeling that I had completely destroyed my opponent after a very frustrating campaign and then realized that it was just a dream. I had the initiative as attacker and rolled 1,4,5,6,6. I brought on my FO and a SLdr, t...

The Funnies

I note rules for the various "funnies" that modified tanks from about D Day on. But there is no cost for Up(?) grading one's tanks to a "funny" such as a flail tank. Nor do I see them mentioned in any of the Pint Size Campaign books. I have a perfect application (I think) in a 29 Lets Go campaign, a...

Pint Sized Campaign Question

What happens when the commanding officer's opinion reaches 12? A new commander is assigned starting over at 0? OR He can go no higher and only lower? OR what? Does his men retain the +3 support they acheived on the way to that exalted position?

Re: Close Combat Question

"Rich clarified some of this on the Yahoo group a while back. I'll see if I can find it."

That would be great, Thanks. y opponent will not accept any rulings except those by Rich himself!

Close Combat Question

After an hour's search of both the CoC files and the Yahoo group files I could not find ANY discussion of this situation. (NOTE: an improved search engine is required - entering "close combat" returned no results in the COC topics, yet there were several with that title when searched item to item)! ...
