Submarines are my undoing?!

With depth charges only having 3" a range (measuring from the bridge) and a rear firing arc only, I'm finding it very difficult to line up an attack on a sub with my US destroyers. Most subs are agile and have a turning score of 3 so it is very easy to manuver out of the firing range and arc of a de...

Please, please share the rumors. I'd very much like to see some life breathed into this great game and this forum. :)

I use Panzerschiffe 1:2400 scale.

http://www.panzerschiffe.com/

They are solid one piece resin ships. Not as detailed as GHQ, but I think they work nicely. Also very affordable.

You can see pics of the ones I've painted on my blog.

I'm new to the game as well. I also found destroyers impossible to hit. I never played a night game. I would imagine that would make things even more annoying. :) Do you have the Order of Battle suppliment? It's a good book that addresses several of the issues you had with trying to hit fast moving ...

Well I just picked up the PDF of OOB and it seems to be updated. I was told to look for the red letters on the cover as opposed to the white. Red letters being the most recent publication of the book.

I'm resurrrecting this post because I to find the wording in OOB confusing in terms of assigning observation aircraft to ASW duties. The book states: "Ships with the Aircraft trait may assign their observation aircraft to ASW duties before the first turn, and will have one depth charge-equipped plan...

No premeasuring. What about movement?

do I need to declare how many inches my ship is going to move before using my tape measure?

For example do I have to say "My destroyer will move 4". "

Or can I simply start moving my ship around as long as I don't move it further than my maximum movement?

pdf version of OOB

RPG Drive Thru offers the OOB book in PDF. I heard there has been several corrections to the book. Does anyone know if the pdf is the latest release?

Thanks. That's the third time I've been pointed to getting the OOB book. Guess I'll have to suck it up and buy it. :)

Thanks again.

Thanks for the info. I found the errata and the FAQ which cleared things up for me. Still don't see anything about being able to reverse so I'm going to assume you can't.

Questions after my first game

Played my first game tonight. I only have the core rules and not OOB. I had a ton of fun. This game is the perfect mix of simplicity and realism (mostly). I had a Kongo class battleship and 4 Fubuki destroyers vs a New York class battleship and 4 Fletcher destroyers. Long Lance torpedos are nasty! I...

Very good point.

I'm off to order some figs....GHQ looks amazing, but probably a little too fragile. Panzerschiffe will do nicely I think.

Thanks for the help. :)

New to the game. Questions.

I want to give this game a shot. I figured I'd pickup a few figs and try a small historic battle in order to get a feel for the rules and introduce some friends to the game. I thought maybe the famous battle involving the KMS Bismark, KMS Prinz Eugen, HMS Hood, and HMS Prince of Wales would be a goo...
