    How could KGP have achieved more?

    Just finished my 3rd reading of Time for Trumpets, an excellent book. One question I keep coming back to is how could KGP have achieved more than they did? High water mark in the area of Stoumont Station, neat Stoumont. I'm asking what could KGP themselves, 1st SS panzer etc done differently -...

    CtR HASL Map Question

    The way the building in DD22 is drawn suggests that the rubble in CC22 was most likely part of the same building. If so, then I would assume that DD22 should have a bigger center dot, signifying presence of a level 1 location?

    Ctr HASL Map terrain question

    The CtR HASL map appears to have cliff hexsides (black) on some elevated level hexsides, such as V27-V28, V29/V30, and Y29-Z29. However, there are some hexsides around Crockett Ravine that appear very slightly lighter, suggesting hillside hedges - such as MM30-NN30, OO31-PP31, and KK30-LL31 ---...

    Another slope rule conundrum

    Slope rules (referencing Ctr 6.3) says ""barring other obstructions to LOS, an up-slope unit - even if not in a hill crest line hex - can trace a LOS across an up-slope hexside of its hex to a lower elevation (i.e. across a hill crest line)…" The rule doesn't mention how many crest lines or...

    Slope rule conundrum

    Situation: I'm playing one of the Corrigedor scenarios. A HS with a MTR is on Level 1 of a building (hex KK12.1) that happens to have upslope hexsides around 3 hexsides of its hex. The base level of the building is on Level 1. An enemy unit is moving at Level 0 11 hexes away (hex Z14), with the...

    G1.424 DC Hero question

    A hex contains a HIP Tank Hunter Hero and a squad with a DC. In the Japanese MPh, can the squad transfer the DC to the THH and thereby make it into a DC Hero that may then make its own charge? I can't find anything preventing this. The DC hero paragraphs discuss creating the DC hero from...

    CtR Terrain questions

    The CtR rules make it clear that Brush is Brush (not Bamboo). Totally clear, but for G.2 purposes (Fortification HIP in daytime scenarios) is the Brush considered to act like bamboo? Or is the only HIP fortification terrain on the map the light jungle? Also, just to be clear, the Topside...

    Red Factories rules for RB scenarios

    Getting ready to play scenario RB13 (Sandbanks of the Volga). Rule 0.2 states: "Unless noted otherwise, all Chapter O rules and all RF SSR apply in all RF scenarios = both RB and RO CG and non-CG types" Do you think this means that all of the CG SSRs apply as well? (2 sniper counters per side...
