Richard Weiley said:It's a shame this issue wasn't caught and addressed by MMP during the playtesting of this scenario.
When this thread began, lo these many years ago, and someone pointed out that not being able to move through Wire while CX was not the same as it costing zero points, I sent a request for clarification off to MMP. Perry has never let me down, although it may be a while before he gets to it. I'll let everyone know when I receive the response.Richard Weiley said:Still, I think there are a lot of players out there to whom it wouldn't immediately occur that wire could be used in this way (myself included).
I think some official clarification from MMP would be useful in this case.

Attached is my original set-up:

The Hun's can not try to swim piecemeal. They need to time hitting the water with all their swimmers about the same time their legs are going after the bridge. The Yugo's won't have enough shots to go around.
I also wonder if the Hun's should trying swimming beside the bridge and in concert with their land assault on the bridge?
Anyway, it is a great scenario...

I split the entering Yugo's. I sent a platoon across the river (with the 6+1 and the LMG) while the rest went for the hill.Pitman said:The latest RBF has a scenario analysis of this scenario (though it only analyzes it from the point of view of the defender).
I thought it was interesting that the author believed, strongly, that the entering Yugoslav forces should try to make their way across the river and join the other defending forces there.
