Thanks for the reply. That's how we decided to play it also. I was just wondering if there is an "official" read or insight on the issue.
I don’t recall seeing an official ruling on this, but we have always played the firing in such a case as being simultaneous.

Re: Infantry in half tracks, MG use

Very interesting about the rear mount on the SdKfz 251/1 being for anti-aircraft fire. Didn’t know that. I suspect it could be used for firing a cheeky “Parthian Shot” against ground targets as the Hanomag retreated, though the gunner would be exposing himself more than his mate manning the forward...

Re: IABSM handbooks - any use to CoC players?

I’d endorse Robert Avery’s “modest” statement as to the usefulness of the IABSM supplements to CoC players. The various Blitzkreig Handbooks for example provide lots of extra background material in a single volume for each participant and provide a context to the lists in the CoC Blitzkreig 1940 sup...

Re: Eastern Front WW1

We have used “If the Lord Spares Us” on numerous occasions to fight both Russian Civil War and Soviet-Polish War actions without any problems. We also use them for fights in East Africa using the amendments in an article in the WW1 Compendium. I have also used for battalion actions on the Western Fr...

Re: Tactical stance

Hi Erik, I think you have the older FAQ which did indeed say that. The latest November 2017 version is different. It should be stickied somewhere. You will find the answer on page 16, namely: A: The answer here, after some reflection, is to add up all the plus factors in favour of the target and the...

Re: Scottish Corridor Carrier option questions

Late War Universal Carriers usually had 4 men, one of whom was the driver, so option A is your answer. Generally when dismounted the driver remained with the vehicle while the other two men crewed the Bren under the direction of the JL. The option in the support list for Scottish Corridor is for the...

Re: What does it cost for leaders?

Welcome to Sharp Practice. You will find the answer to your question as to Leader costs in the Generic Support Table on page 80 of the rules. Captain Reid has neatly summarised these for you in his answer. I would share his advice on the use of Status IV Leaders, best used with caution and only in s...

Re: What does it cost for leaders?

Greetings In scenarios you get the leaders for your chosen platoon as standard and then additional leaders from the support lists. So, p.83 gives a German infantry platoon with its senior leader and 3 junior leaders. P.85 gives the support list where another senior leader is on list two ie costs 2 ...

Excellent news, I will seek the out.

Out of interest, are the any high level details out there on Infamy, Infamy.

I have a load of victrix plastic Romans and Celts that might fit the bill.
Check out the Lard Island News Blog for some high level stuff on “Infamy, Infamy!”.
