    3rd level OBO's and 2.5 level factories?

    This applies to both RB and RO and has the same consequences. The main issue is once a factory is gutted can a Off Board Observer (Level 3) see "over the top"? If not one is left with an aerial observer which has a number of negative consequences. Is it the opinion of...

    DM'ing already broken units.. easier than u think

    After re- reading the rules it seems that TEM has no effect on the ability to DM broken units. This would make low odds attacks problematic, however just want to check that this is so. Needless to say this makes broken units "dead ducks".

    LOS on RO map

    RO LOS study: Without further adieu let's look: Q28 - G28 10 hexes 2.5 1 ( the roof) The difference is 1.5 hexes ( vertical) This seems to be 1(building) + 2 (range) = 3 hex blind-spot , with -1 per >1 elevation difference. This means every...

    RO 23rd opening moves U can be German

    Anyone interested in (and who wouldn't be) playing the 23rd and 24th of RO in Tag-X ? The game is pretty much decided by the 24th. If the German loose all their toys things could be a little difficult. I also have a bigger map thanks to a clever map editor that also has LOS that...

    Some routing and a CC question.

    CC: How long does a CX counter remain on CC unit? Rout: A unit in a building needs to rout, in order of "presentation" is a rubble hex - open hex with a foxhole in it and then a building. Can it directly enter the foxhole to avoid interdiction? If so can it then also directly...

    Does a stopped AFV in bypass disallow enemy unit entry to the hex?

    If an AFV stops in a hex in bypass does this prevent enemy units from entering the hex unless it first passes PAATC ? This is regardless of which hexside the AFV is facing. This is essentially the same tactic as AFV AFV AFV AFV no infantry can get past the "AFV wall" until it...

    How does TPBF work here ( i.e. does it)

    Situation. enemy in building ? AFV in bypass stops in hex . enemy looses ? when the AFV stops AFPh DUE to the AFV being in the hex in a TPBF sense, can the AFV fire using cmg, bmg x3 ( TPBF) with times .5 for motion then fire with the TEM (+3)...

    OBA LOS over roofs

    In observing a village some 2 km away the OBA observer notices many roofs and all in his LOS. DOES the fact that the AR./SR landed on the roof ( as it was the first thing it hit on the way down) grant LOS as if it landed on open ground etc? Ta

    CC and broken units - how to

    OH bother.... I have always thought that CC vs enemy units whether ?, DM (broken) or GO happen all at once. Similar to fire at a hex with ? and non ? units and let the mods apply as they will. Thus say 8FP at the non ? and 4 at the ? one. That is all at once...

    How to send an error log file (bug) please

    Can someone please instruct how and what to send in a error file. There is frequently a size error.. The main thing that happens is that pieces just disappear or do not actually want to be placed on the board. Thank you

    Advance under duress.. we are CX sarg !! hope this helps

    In the example above during the Advance Phase - due to the move requiring 4 MP - all units in the stream may not advance to M7 or M8 due to the units (all therein) being CX. In another slightly different case ( where units need not be CX) in no case may a unit advance if it retains no MF...

    Invisible - disappearing pieces

    Now with 6.5.1 - beta when pieces are placed on a board they just don't appear. This is my own from scratch. I also note I can't start a log file... I had this a long time ago with a RB game. Hope someone has some idea.

    Strange LOS Q- which effects ? loss

    If there are two stacks adjacent but both in +3 smoke, there is no LOS between them because of +7 LOS Hindrances (extra for outgoing). However, if one unit "bumps" the adjacent stack the MvPh, does he force it to reveal a unit? I had an opponent who said no because the LOS range is infinite (no...

    AREA fire and mortars...

    As per the rules area fire represents firing at the house, ground, wall, etc. When it hits a multi hex building "all locations can be effected" if in the LOS of the firer. So far so good. ( esp in a Stuka). When a target is concealed (also via dummy) the target [ not ground etc] is harder to...
