Re: Reforming Skirmisher and Fog of War

Since I don’t use Fog of War cards this situation has never arisen. For what it’s worth my take would be that since skirmishers can only reform behind a friendly close order unit, you would need to place that unit on the table from its Fog of War card when the skirmishers fall back behind it. They c...

Re: Activations vs. Uncontrolled

A unit always requires to be activated to fire effective Controlled or Uncontrolled Volleys. So if the Leader uses his Command Initiative to do something else other than activate the unit to bring it back under Control, the unit is considered to be still firing uncontrolled but it’s fire is ineffect...

Re: Cold War rules shown on twitter

There is a FaceBook Group set up to playtest a Chain of Command Up Over the Rhine variant for the Cold War. That might be what the Twitter discussion was about. Here’s a link:

Re: Smoke

Smoke from mortar shells completely blocks line of sight. Smoke from smoke grenades is a -1 penalty to hit. See the Errata/FAQ where this change for grenades was introduced.

Re: 2" mortar smoke?

3” same as a smoke grenade, though I think that’s generous for the latter. See section 9.4.1 top of second column, page 43.

Re: Rich’s New game video and big question

To answer your question on ground scale Waterhouse, in Chain of Command it is 12”:40 yards, in Sharp Practice it is 12”:50 yards. There is no stated ground scale in Infamy, Infamy! Right! Thanks I knew Chain of Command was 12”:40 yards, I've not played enough Sharp Practice to question it personall...

Re: Rich’s New game video and big question

Fascinating discussion on how little we know about how a Roman Legion really operated. To answer your question on ground scale Waterhouse, in Chain of Command it is 12”:40 yards, in Sharp Practice it is 12”:50 yards. There is no stated ground scale in Infamy, Infamy! and I don’t recall Rich enlighte...

Re: United States Platoon built-in mortar squads out of ammo

Id say that the simplest solution would be to allow the squad to use their personal weapons if they run out of ammo. It’s not likely to happen with any frequency.

Re: NWF lists for SP2?

Yes the rules stop at 1865..... I thought I read somewhere that Big Rich was into the Austro-Prussian War of 1866 and had used them for that? Rich is certainly very interested in the Austro-Prussian War of 1866 I believe. Whether he has used the current SP rules for that period I couldn’t say. Ther...
