Re: Ambush and Movement

Just so I've got this right, the main issue is armies with single unit sections (No teams.) so Russian and Japanese spring to mind. I think you just have to do what you think is right, play the period as the saying goes. Rather than deny a force the ability to ambush with its infantry forces, I thin...

Re: Ambush and Movement

Must admit I agree with Rich H, let others do the same if equipped for the job, at the expense of all other firing.

Re: ANTI‐TANK WEAPONS TEAM Resupply

I don't even see the need to move to another JOP, next time they activate they should be able to try again.
It's not that there are no more available, just that it's not got there yet. They are hanging around where it should be waiting for a re supply to come in.

Re: PTO Here we go!

I know it's not what you asked about, but I thought I'd ask here as it seemed as good a place as any.

Re: Firing Bazooka/shrek from a vehicle

I just can't see it being a viable option. Firstly it was not common practice during the period or we would think it the norm rather than an exception. Soft skins are vulnerable and infantry AT weapons valuable, so to risk both resources by dashing around seems an unwarranted waste. I'm not saying i...

Re: Dealing with Mortars 101

Just a couple of thoughts, if I'm right (though I rarely am.) barrages historically fell in a set patern called a sheaf? A patern to the shape of the barrage. These should I would have thought be square on to the players table edge, this prevents the placing of a template at odd angles just to get t...

Re: A couple of questions

Thanks for all the help and positive comments about the terrain, one last phone from the day. Brits set up in the garden of the lone house on the other side of the road. All my other photos are a bit blurry, the games only Half way through so if anything crops up next time. I'll be back with more qu...

Re: A couple of questions

The allied troops were in the row of houses with the Suze sign painted on the side. The ones who lobbed the grenades did so from the ground floor door on the house at the end ( the one that actually has the sign on it). The German were 6" away over the wall, but with no clear path they could have go...
