Re: Faltering Brigade and ADCs.

Hi Lowdice,
Yes you can allocate a second ADC to gain a Brigade Command test reroll and I would always recommend that you do so for a Brigade facing a Falter Test.

Re: What rank is my forward observor

TBH the term 'FOO' in the army lists creates a slightly mistaken impression, suggesting the sort of commissioned officer that would be cueing in brigade, divisional and who knows what other fires (AGRA anyone ;) ?!) EC To be fair all the Chain of Command lists I know of refer to him as a “Forward O...

Re: LMG against vehicles

Are there any special rules for firing LMGs vs wheeled armoured cars? Can’t recall seeing any. Short answer is No there are no special rules for such circumstances. Probably an unnecessary level of granularity and better to keep it simple and the same for all AFVs. An armoured car is more likely to...

Re: le.ig 18 use against vehicles

Thanks all for the input. I shall proceed happily in the knowledge that the gun team are not going to give the infantry's senior leader a blank, incredulous stare next time he suggests it...! For what it’s worth, should you ever need chapter and verse, the definition of an Infantry Gun on page 45 i...

Re: Outcome of multiple charges on a target

Hi Ricky,
I would say Yes to both questions, both attacking units benefit from from the higher charge score dice roll and result. As it says you just ignore the lower dice score.

Re: Question on Firing with infantry

What I would do is adjust the number of actions available to fire as if the squad only contained the number of men with line of sight. This will vary with the quality of the unit concerned. So in your example it might reduce the dice available from 3 to 1 or even 0. You can still use the squads othe...

Re: Big men activating other big men

Actually IABSM does allow a Company Commander to use all of his actions to activate a single subordinate Big Man if he is on a radio net or static telephone line. See end of section 1.1 on page 15. It will specify in the Army lists which, if any, platoons are on a radio net and this will vary across...

Re: LMG against vehicles

Hi Simon, You can fire an LMG against an armoured vehicle in an attempt to drive it off but the mechanics are completely different to normal fire. Basically the vehicles owner rolls a number of dice equal to the AFV armour rating looking for at least 1 save, ie roll a 5 or 6. If successful then the ...

Re: BUA Multiple Battalion Melee

Hi Rob, If you haven’t found it yet you might like to check out the General D’Armee FAQ which confirms that in Multiple Unit Melees the winner is the side that inflicts the most combined casualties. It may also answer some of your other newby questions, but if not just ask. You will find it here: ht...

Re: BUA Multiple Battalion Melee

Hi Rob,
For what it’s worth I would treat a second round of Melee in a BUA as a single fight and compare the total casualty dice for each side to determine the winner with the final result affecting all the participants on the losing side.
