Re: Step out question

Gentlemen,

Thanks for the responses. I am inclined to not allow the step out plus other card-driven added movement characteristics as well.

I appreciate the prompt and cogent replies.

Step out question

Just a quick question on step out -- can it be combined with Ambuscade, Tally Ho!, and the free action of skirmishers to add an extra d6 of movement? In the case of Tally Ho!, a unit of, say British Light Dragoons, could (at the gallop) cover 5d6 + 9, on average more than two feet. This is quite sig...

Re: Turn 4-Von Luck Campaign

My understanding of places like Monte Cassino is not so much that the rubble provides equal to or better cover but rather it increased the potency of the defenders. For a large building complex like the monastery, reducing it to rubble makes the entire area defensible, not just along the perimeter. ...

Re: Turn 4-Von Luck Campaign

I had indeed planned this out before the game. It is hard enough to hit the veteran paras so I wanted to reduce cover if possible. If I recall, Rich counted destroyed buildings as light cover in one of the 1940 Beasts of War games. My assumption that one can target buildings comes from 10.3.6: "A bu...

Re: Gendarmes d'Espagne - Peninsular war french

I have often thought that the list should include foot gendarmes who are not dismounted cavalry. When the gendarmerie for the Army of Spain were formed in January/February in 1810, there were 20 squadrons composed of about 40% cavalry and 60% infantry... as I recall they were draw from a cadre of ge...

Issue with an Order

I hope this is the appropriate board for this... I placed an order (#21654) for the new Lardie Dice and a set of SP2 tokens (never seem to have enough of those uncontrolled tokens) through the web store. I soon received an email saying my order was complete and within a week a package arrived with t...
