Re: Question on Culverts in Gembloux PSC

I’ve watched half an hour of the Lardies play through but as usual they miss so many rules I’m not inclined to take anything there as definitive. Fair comment! But other than the generic Blitzkrieg 1940 Scenario 2 reference, why is a "small culvert" the equivalent of a "small fortification" (Task R...

Re: Question on Culverts in Gembloux PSC

I think the way they played it on LardTV they were both small culverts. So saying, the Blitzkrieg 1940 demolition rules (pp. 23-24) are potentially ambiguous on the size of culverts, so unless the scenario states otherwise (as is the case with the generic Blitzkrieg 1940 Scenario 2, p. 120) I'd trea...

Re: Off Table Machine Guns

Similar question re pre-game barrage. Does an off table machine gun have to roll when it is first activated to shoot? It's not deploying on the table so RAW no. But it's a later addition and presumably not that far away so should still be affected by the barrage? Yes it's a later addition to the ru...

Re: Gembloux Gap Reinforcements

I can't find any reference in the PSC to any additional German reinforcements, so I think the implication that there is one additional set of reinforcements for the Germans (at some stage alongside their opportunity to introduce two fresh platoons) is a typo.

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 05 10 19)

That is a very salient observation Baron - the real time sense of a campaign is easy to forget and hard to demonstrate or describe given the way nearly all of us tend to write up these encounters (game by game rather than at the end of the campaign); and lets not forget that in fact there were Germa...

Re: Sharp Practice lists for Marlboroughs Wars 1700-1709

The Summer Special 2017 has an article on "Using Field of Glory Renaissance Armies in Sharp Practice" which provides some rosters for War of the Grand Alliance/League of Augsburg units (1688-1697) which might usefully serve as a starting point. As the author of that article points out, skirmishers w...

Re: Gembloux Gap campaign (updated 05 10 19)

WOW! Another great account and terrific fight. With that oh-so-effective pre-game barrage, I think all of us felt that the Germans had this in the bag, but it does show how a cool-headed, never-say-die defence can claw back victory (so ably represented in the recovery of that broken LMG team). As fr...
