Re: Mortar barrage against buildings

Hi Rob,
The rule in 10.3.6 is for using direct fire HE weapons like tank guns against buildings. I don't believe it applies to indirect mortar barrages.
If it did my view is that it should be calculated from the dice rolled against a single Team to be consistent. So option 1 as you played it.

Where in the rules is this stated?
It isn't explicitly stated as such because the rules define when a unit is in cover which depends on the unit's own location. Troops in the open are not in cover when being engaged by troops firing from within a wood.

I'm still a novice. The terms and conditions were read out aloud by my opponent (a veteran COC player). So I plead... It's His Own Bloody Fault!
Fair enough! Stopping Aussies going onto the attack is well nigh impossible anyway! :D

Re: Blitzkreig German support lists

TT,
I'd just use standard Heer figures but pay the higher price to reflect the apparent "lack of availability" of the AT rifle. If anyone asks "it fell off the back of a passing SS lorry." :lol:

Re: Hodges Gets a Gong (CoC AAR)

Very enjoyable AAR, loved the photo format! Thanks for this.

Just one thing, I thought the Aussies were defending? In the Probe scenario it's the attacker who wins by getting a team off the opponent's table edge not the defender.
Looks like someone forgot to tell Lt.Hodges.

Re: Points

You don't use lists or points. Just field historic formations set a mission and go for it. There's no such thing as balance in aerial combat. :-) Seriously it takes a bit of trial and error to work through. Pilot quality is more important than numbers of aircraft a lot of the time. Things get a bit ...

Search on here will find several queries re the AT rifle my info and arguments (and others) for them and references. But it has been not heeded so if you want AT rifles you have to play SS or FJ 😝
Or buy them from those support lists at an additional cost of 1 SP.

As far as I recall there are no points values.

Re: Artillery supporting fire

That's a good point and a fair argument Tony. However, I can see it being argued that the restrictive wording on page 39 supercedes the normal Priority Target rules in this particular case. I don't think it should but I can see that argument being advanced when a player is faced with fire from a 12p...
