Re: WWI Russian Platoon Organisation.

Have you checked out Chris Stoesen’s supplement for Easter Front actions using Through the Mud and Blood rules? “From Empire to Revolution” is available to buy from the TFL website and contains information on both the Russian and Austrian armies in WW1. https://toofatlardies.co.uk/product/from-empir...

Re: Sharp Practice 2nd edition and So Far From God supplement

Hi Pete, Yes you are correct, the “So Far from God” supplement was written for version 1 of Sharp Practice which included a Bonus Deck which was triggered by a player rolling more ones than sixes. This was replaced by the Random Events Tables in version 2. The “Grasp the Nettle” cards are a more col...

Re: Command Hierarchy

Hi Marc, As Ian said, using Command Flags simply increases the Command Initiatives available to the Level I Leader, it does not increase his Status or rank so control of the Formation is unaffected. Also note that a formation is commanded by the Leader who outranks any other attached leader. Being t...

Re: Charging units that charged?

Hi Phil, If you haven’t already done so can I recommend downloading the GDA FAQ/Errata from TFL’s Lard Island News blog where you will find the answer to your questions. Basically a non-phasing unit which is the target of a charge may not declare its own charge on the phasing chargers or any other u...

Re: Bad Reputation

Hi Jim,

There’s no way for a Character or Gang to recover from a Bad Reputation in the course of a game or campaign. It’s too short a time and people have long memories. All you can do is saddle up and move on to another town where no one knows who you are. :)

Re: A few Questions

Here’s my take on your questions: 1) No units cannot voluntarily leave the table during a game. If you want to avoid a damaged unit routing and triggering a BTH roll you will need to find somewhere in cover to hide out of line of sight of the enemy. Units will only withdraw via a Jump Off Point usin...

Re: What to do with wallahs?

Since they can never operate in Formations I think Wallahs are best portrayed as a disorganised mob rather than a formed unit. So I’d go with 3 ranks and preferably on an irregular sabot tray such as those sold by Warbases in their Dux Brit/Zombie range. https://warbases.co.uk/product/dux-britzombie...

Re: Bayonets

In terms of the effect the Native Lance option is the equivalent to using a Bowie Knife in a brawl. (P59) So you would be treating the bayonet effectively as a Bowie Knife with a better hit chance. Not sure it warrants that.
