Bunched Target rule

Post by cornelius » Mon Dec 03, 2018 10:10 pm

I am not convinced by the Bunched Targets increasing the pips by 2 rule.
The rules state add +2 to an attack for each section/weapons team/crew within 2” of the target section for anti-personnel fire. This is crude. Why should a section with 4 remaining men plus a PIAT team of 2 take more casualties than a full section of 8?

My proposed solution is to count figures in target section/team plus any within 2” radius. For every five figures (rounding up to nearest 5) above ten, add 1 to total. (10 is about the largest normal section). An Umpire has an important role here to make adjustments according to circumstances.

Any thoughts?
