Rules Questions / Attack Broken Up / Rapid reinforcements
« Last post by Peter Clarke on Today at 05:36:00 AM »
You can only allocate one artillery unit and one tactic per unit participating in the combat.
1) If the defender plays "Attack broken up" does that limit the amount of artillery and tactics played?
2) If you play rapid reinforcements as a tactic, can you add another artillery unit and a tactic for that new unit?

I think that the sequence of events is such that you choose artillery, then tactics, then reveal all, so I suspect these two options don't affect the amount of support/tactics played.  But I'm not sure.

General Discussion and Announcements / Barbarossa list
« Last post by Rupert of Hentzau on Today at 02:47:35 AM »
Hi folks,

I have been reading the rules on and off for a while, and just started to look at my first list.
Looking at Russian Mechanised Corps for Barbarossa.

Using the Early Russian list, if I use a Motor Rifle Brigade as my first building block, is this one of the three elements required? Or would two of these including a Tank Battalion attachment each make up a Motor Rifle Division, which would be the element.
At 6 infantry battalions, 2 tank battalions and two artillery battalions its 30 points so I assume the total is the element?

Also, how would I portray the Recon battalion, is this assumed to be dispersed or do I show ir as a unit attached to the parent?

Ant help appreciated

Thatīs a typical question in wargames. To rate units is a controversial theme and you can find opinions for a decission and the opposite.
And if you read for example books of historicians of differente countries, the rating could be impossible mission...

If the defender withdraws, do any attacker’s tactics still count as used?

Yes.

As I understand it, tactics are played simultaneously, therefore all tactics selected for that combat by both sides are paid for and used, even if they are wasted because the enemy has run away.

Historical Scenarios / Re: Hannut 1940
« Last post by Gary1946 on June 15, 2018, 11:03:04 AM »
I ran Hannut Saturday at Bayou Wars. We used the modified OPS sheets with 6 German and 3 French starting OPS. using the historical set-up. We started with 9 players but added nothing to OPS or extra OP sheets. One person dropped out during the first turn.

I will say up front that we had to many new players. The first two turns took an hour to get through. Considering the noise of the convention and only a few players had even heard of 'Rommel'  it went well. Everyone had fun. By the forth turn most people were playing on their own. Most of the time was taken as players discussed what they should do.

We did not get through the first day and things were to close to call a winner. The Germans said they were winning and  so did the French. As everyone enjoyed the game, I call it a success. Isn't the point to have fun.

I suggest that four players would have been a better number of players but the interest was greater than I anticipated. Every one that wanted to play was allowed to. It was to hectic (loud) to actually make an AAR but I will try to get a few pics up when I can.
