Another Into the Rubble special

I noticed there were some HIP A-T Minefields in Paved Road hexes that are not shellhole hexes, is there an SSR that allows that placement? If so is only movement through those hexes not utilizing the road bonus subject to those mines?

I'm touched that after several of these AARs your first thought was "there must be a special rule" and not "Neil just screwed up again". Sadly Option B should generally be your go to decision.

Another one to add:

A factory has no cellars - B23.742. So this did not happen:

"To increase the pressure he drove a tank straight into the factory. My defenders watched in despair as the thing promptly dropped through into the cellar making a mess of their porn stash and hydroponic dope plantation."

It could of course have still bogged.

Many thanks for another fun AAR. Good luck with the Italians - those breakage numbers generally make playing them an unpleasant experience for me. Currently playing ASL57 The Battle for Rome where the Italians have ammunition shortage :eek: I am not the Italians 👍

AT Mines (by the ASLRB) are allowed to set up on Paved Roads, just not HIP.

Noticed that as well but didn't want to pile on too much.

OK, I'm blaming Dave for that one. He drove the tank in. He rolled the bog dice roll and it was he who determined (admittedly with my enthusiastic support) that the vehicle managed to drop into a non existent cellar. Since he still won the scenario it obviously didn't cramp him too much.

What you're saying is, you're so bad that your opponent needs to figure out ways to help you during the game.

"Oh, darn, my HMG rolled a 7. By SSR C16.2.3.41a(a), it's immediately eliminated and every squad within 2 hexes breaks. Darn."

Cracked me up. Great AAR...again.
