Scouts and Smoke screens

Post by Simon141 » Mon Mar 18, 2019 8:49 pm

Just come back to Mud & Blood after a few years and was using a scenario from Stout Hearts where for the Brits one of the squads has a couple of scouts.

After reading the scouts rules in section 5.2.2 what actually is the point of scouts? They have to stay within command radius of the Big Man seems very limiting. Can they not act independently and be used to reveal enemy Blinds etc?

Grateful for any thought on using them?

Does anyone use smoke screens and what are the rules?

Thanks
