The Hundred Days / Page 8 clarification please
« Last post by trailape on November 21, 2017, 10:43:43 PM »
Ok
So we’re playing a battle and the French deploy with a large Corps within a single central square.
The allies have units in all the other five squares.

AFA
AAA

The French army breaks and can’t exit from its original central position as the allies have two Brigades off table directly to their (French rear).
The French have two infantry units with a toe (half a base DEPTH) in one allied square.
Is this sufficient for them (the French) to retreat their Corps from this avoiding annihilation?
The 100 Day ‘rules’ state on page 8:
‘A defeated army retreats from all the battlefield Squares,.....
and those columns may retreat to any map Squares that are open and WERE ADJACENT TO ANY MAP SQUARES WHERE HE HAD UNITS’.
Define ‘where he had units’?
Is half a base depth sufficient to say “I have units in that square’?
Thoughts?

Thank you, I am glad to provide the service! The bases are the same size as the Honour Cards from the 100 Days set, or 3.5" x 2". You can get them from Sally 4th, as part of their Blucher specific base range.

This is brilliant!  I've been looking for some inspirational eye candy, and you've offered a ton here.  May i ask what size bases you're using?

Finally got my mountains finished for my North Africa tanks battles using Rommel. I am happy how they came out, but I need 10 more from looking at the scenarios that are coming out for North Africa. More at http://fuentesdeonoro.blogspot.com/2017/11/terrain-for-6mm-wargaming-mountains.html.

I finally have enough troops painted up to trial the ruleset using the Operation Brevity scenario. Should have some photos up soon.

Historical Scenarios / Re: Tebaga Gap, Tunisia 1943

Thanks to Fred and armstp for the replies.

The massed AT looks particularly good for North Africa where the Germans can lure the Allies onto their PaK fronts. Looks to be a good rule without overburdening the player with detail.

I will look forward to playing the scenario.

From a Prussian point of view those are the only ones worth recording.

Historical Scenarios / Re: Tebaga Gap, Tunisia 1943

Yes, as Fred noted the anti-tank refers to the optional rule. I quite like this rule as it very nicely depicts the ability of units with ample anti-tank guns to hold their own against tanks in the open.  It also enables me to place some of my anti-tank guns on the table as I can attach them to the relevant infantry stands to represent the fact that they have this ability. 

The tanks having a better defence rating was on the same basis as the infantry.  There were a handful of Italian units involved in the Tebaga defence with better training and morale, they could hold a position quite well but were much less effective when they tried to attack.   Whilst I am not certain about the Tebaga fighting elsewhere in Tunisia the Italian light tanks supporting infantry could be quite difficult to move when defending but were quickly knocked out if they moved.
