    Alberta Assault Replacement

    Gents, We had one player drop out due to family and grad school issues. If you know someone who would like a free entry courtesy of Mike W we have two games to play in two weeks. The scenarios are all short and low density so should go quickly. Round 2 kicks off tomorrow. First come first...

    Round One: 238 - Audacity (CdG 2) Good morning all. Edit: With seven of the eight games reported I thought I would post the results before sending out the card and vsav file for Round Two. We have five German and three French wins which seems to be in line with close to the ROAR and ASL...

    #40: (Live) Black Day in Hatten

    I would second the use of Opp Fire and HS and would add: Dave could have made more use Inf Smoke. If a squad had 1 or 2 MF factor left over after a move or aslt mv placing smoke in their own or adjacent hex may have helped screen other squads. If used with care the crew Smoke from the M18s may...

    advance into a rubble hex carrying a mantled 50 Mtr

    And then the issue of portaging the dismantled mantlepiece across the map to the VC building and then "re-mantling" the mantle.

    Night & Freedom of Movement

    There again I believe we refer to E1.21. An SMC that "...is allowed to move in its MPh, any unit that begins the MPh with it, in the same stack, is allowed to move also..." Stacks do not have to remain together once released. Note that a vehicle with radio can be released if any other vehicle...

    Night & Freedom of Movement

    E1.21 states that any unit in the hex with an SMC that grants FoM is thus released. That said, if it's an SSR that prohibits FoM on T1 I would suggest this overrides the RB (as SSRs often do). Otherwise one simply stacks the best SMC with the tank thus invalidating the intent of the SSR. The...

    advance into a rubble hex carrying a mantled 50 Mtr

    Aww, c'mon Michael. We used 'mantled/dismantled' for years (in fun). :p Don't be such a Purist :whistle:

    Dinant CG (Dennis Brothers)

    Yup,... In our game Lee had to rely on the Pz IVs for Smoke as the artillery was not provided with smoke rounds for this battle. The Germans need to use care with their own 81* mortars as they are more exposed and vulnerable than one might think. For the French force preservation is they key to...

    burning rubble

    Oh, mahn,... that was a guffaw moment. Yes, had burning falling rubble a few time over the years. Most recently in VotG. Note also that you can get building collapse due to Gusts if an (upper level) building Location is possesses a Blaze.
