Re: 10mm figure basing?

"...I doubt any of the base depth / width oddities would be critical especially as the rules specify no basing whatsoever. I am however more concerned about footprint / play area issues ." That is my reasoning towards making the stands as small as possible (both representationally and mechanically)...

Re: 10mm figure basing?

...but will be either over (if using in line) or under (if using the 2 front / 1 back method) the suggested (I recall having read) 100mm frontage in an assault. I have no concern about the 'under' issue because stands can simply be spread out a tad on the tabletop, can't they?...I don't recall the ...

Re: A barrage of questions about barrages

"That crazy Mulligan is droppin' 'em all over the place!" We have been thinking about making the beaten zone more random to make it less predictable. Along those lines, I've rolled for four, separate impact zones (6" dia circles, iirc...maybe 9"?) for a barrage - each one having its own deviation r...

Re: Frothers Discussion

A) No

B) Considering the rampant impersonation/trolling occurring at present, the identity of the OP should be assigned with more than the usual scepticism.

Re: Bloody Bucket

"You could add some restrictions as they are not part of the platoon and are not familiar with its commanders." An option I'm considering for a similar situation is to reduce the command range for such troops to 3" to reflect that they aren't always looking to the (strange) leader for commands, but...

Re: Support Squads

Am thinking of making a fixed pool of support troops for future campaigns I'm currently trying to set up just that for a 'mini-Bucket'(-a pint?) campaign. In prepping for "Bloody Bucket" I noticed that getting two German platoons and three support squads painted put me very close to a full company,...

Re: Why don't MMG teams have a Junior Leader

...in real life a platoon of infantry would not usually be supported by an MMG, an MMG being more of a company -level support. Thus we could say that during the battle some of your platoon's MMG support's time is spent supporting other friendly platoons fighting off-table, which is why they shoot s...

Re: Questions from tonight’s game…

Can an infantry Senior Leader issue a command initiative order to a tank (a’la Audie Murphy and the intercom on the back)? I allow it in scenario-specific conditions when the infantry has had training in cooperative operations with a specific armor unit - an example would be the US in Cobra, as rel...

Re: Crew bails out question

If the choice is between unit killed or unit routed I would choose the latter since the crew is seen has having bailed out.
