Historical Scenarios / Re: Operation Perch 1944
« Last post by Gary1946 on Today at 08:38:28 AM »
This looks really good. I am still working on Early & Middle War but hope to get into Late War this Year. A lot of things such as Infantry and Artillery cross all periods so Armour upgrades will do most of it.

Nice work.
Historical Scenarios / Operation Perch 1944
« Last post by Timstanks on Today at 04:04:43 AM »
I've started to create a scenario for the action  in the "Caumont Gap" leading up to the famous action at Villers-Bocage, between the 7th Armoured  and Panzer Lehr Divisions in June 1944.

This is a first attempt at a scenario so I've posted some work in progress which I'd appreciate any thoughts you chaps might have.

You can find this at

Many thanks in advance.

Maybe I misunderstood your question, I thought you wanted to know if you could fire on a unit with its front edge wholly outside a wood, and my answer was I game you can because you are not firing into a wood as such

Thanks fulhamfc, on what do you base the unit not being 'in the woods'. The only rules I can see that govern anything inside a terrain feature are those regarding difficult moves which state the footprint must be in the terrain, not the front edge.

I can provide the numbers in a PDF.  You are only the second person in the group that showed any interest.  Send me your private email and I will send the PDF along.

Sounds an interesting system- would it be rude to ask for the numbers you have assigned to individual commanders( and do they change with the date of conflict)?

Thanks very much, I am happy the scenario worked for you.

We played day 3 of the battle last night and I will send out an AR once I have it put together. I am hooping translate the scenario, I have written to a mini 3 day campaign.

As an aside I am hoping to put on your Kasserine Pass scenario next Saturday at a game day at our club. I am hoping to introduce some new players to Rommel.

My view in this is that the unit you want to fire upon is outside the wood, not in it as such, itís front edge is outside so you are not firing into a wood, did not look up the thread you mention, but this is how I game it
Historical Scenarios / Operation Compass

After a months break from gaming we are back to it.   Wavellís offensive against the unsuspecting Italians.  The game is bit demoralising for the Italians, as it was historically.  It will take a lot of luck for them to hold on for the full day [although it was turn 13 in our first play through before the Allies had four objectives and the Italians had no way of getting them back].  However, it is an opportunity to get a few of those early light tanks onto the table top.  And a good exercise in careful defensive resource management for the Italian player.

This will probably be my last desert scenario for a while.  My Deep-Cut Studio European fields mat with 6 inch square grid has arrived, so it is time for a few 1944/5 battles with my 1/200 scale Americans and Germans.
Rules Questions / Infantry fire into woods
« Last post by Reddog on January 17, 2018, 03:37:42 PM »
To me the rules seem crystal clear that a unit with its footprint in woods but it's front edge wholly outside the woods can fire.

It also seems to me that it's clear that an infantry unit directly in front may not fire at that unit as it is in woods and the text on pg 47 regarding obstruction seems to confirm this.."infantry fire may not pass through or into any woods or urban area. In other words: infantry may not fire at any unit that is in woods" (emphasis is mine)

I can find no indication that a unit is considered in a terrain only if the front edge is inside that terrain or the whole footprint is within the terrain etc.

However, this appears to be contradictory to what Sam has posted in a 2 year old thread (hence my new post).
