On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 judging by the number of active online community members. Mainly due to lack of support and Mongoose pulling the plug early on - pity as it is a really good good game with easy mechanics but the rulebook is full of errors, inconsistancies and typo's.

Thats got to be the most realistic paint job I've seen on a tank, weathered and worn but looked after, and not showroom condition or covered in rust.

I'm with you Blue Devil, but its not really that HT's can be taken out of action with small arms, its the fact that they are taken out so easily with small arms. Don't know why they can't react return fire either (which would help them), surely thats part of the MG's job?

Why not just reduce the armour save during a turn for every succesful fire action against it, until you reach, say 5+, when normal armour kicks in. At the start of a new turn the armour value starts at its maximum again.

Unless using house rules, you don't have units of armour.

I'm from Gillingham 15mins down the A2 and go to a club in Chatham/Walderslade on Tuesday nights - I've not played for a long while but could be up for a game if you like.

Do units get pushed back from a reaction shot or just action shooting though?

Unexpected answer as it does not follow the games general rules and is certainly not mentioned in there to resolve this way :? Would have thought just roll as per normal firing and allocate as usual with the proviso that dice are allocated within their firezone.

What we are facing here is IMO the system innate problem if several authors are working on one game system without a strict guideline. Not that this is by default a bad thing, but some discrepancy will appear. Please see my above proposed weapon stats in this light! Which is the problem being discu...

Thats the biggest problem with these rules, all these stats combine to give one roll for accuracy, penetration and to damage the target. But if the 100mm gun has better penetration than the 85mm then this stat certainly shouldn't be worse whichever way you want to look at it.

Beats me, a quich search found this good site for Russian gun penetration and finds, as expected, that the 100mm is more effective.

Why should it take an action to switch ammo, doesn't the commander just order which to use? With the short game length there is no need whatsoever to micro-manage ammo, you will probably only fire off half a dozen rounds anyway. I've use simple rules for HE right from the begining, just by having a ...

Excellent idea Rabid Child
Sgt Hulka - I've found that just one German heavy or even Panther can dominate the game (especially against allied rubbish infantry AT weapons) unless the scenario prevents this.

You can. The 10" range is for other actions only.

You've got to draw the line somewhere. If it was 11" then some would argue why not the model 12" away. 10" seems a good distance, far enough away to have an effect and not to far to dominate a board.

Rifles: The squad must dismount before able to fire their rifles effectively. The Kar-98k rifles carried by this unit are therefore counted as being Ready weapons. By making them have Ready weapons will mean that they are always penalised even if they start the game dismounted. Don't give the rider...

The game you are looking at is dead. If you can find complete pre-paint forces for two-sides then go for it as it is a great game, but are no longer made. You should be able to pick them up cheap on eBay. You only need a few units a side to have a good game. Of course there is nothing stoppingyou fr...
