NO!!!

Size of the model has nothing to do with seeing the enemy UNLESS the enemy is IN terrain. You just eyeball the model.

So units in cover could never see coptors and vice versa cause of the 12 " thing. unless the model sizes were size 12 or bigger ? Errr, NO. Do not consider size, What I'm trying to say is IF your air unit is not 12" above the table, for game purposes it is assumed to be 12" above the table. So, whe...

For smaller games a 4' by 4' will work just fine. I don't think you will have a problem with a smaller game board. I just do not recommend using fix air on such a board. Moderate combat and transport helis would work well.

Have fun.

Trained soldier know how to use cover and concealment to it's full advantage. Give trained soldiers a armor save when in any type of cover of +1. OR Trained soldiers do not fall apart easy when a leader is Killed. When a Leader is kill roll a D6 on a 5+ instead of losing two actions the Leader is au...

Do what you want. My answer make them a CC weapon with a range of 0 (thus they have a 6" radius from the model) , 1xD6 with each die counting two for suppression.

I understand you Colonel. It is a common frustration when new ones join the game. I say it adds to the game to have BASE set of terrain save modifiers for this game. If you feel the same, then please feel free to add them. Body armor (flak Jackets) are should not add to this. So, if you have a bunke...

If that is what you want to do, go for it. But do not let it add to the base save that some unit have due to flak jackets, such as the USMC. If you do then it will really make the game lopsided.

Play the game with the basic rules for awhile, until you get your Main Rule Book. The chance small arms even from a elevated position will harm the MBT is very slim. At best if the player rolls a 6 they could TARGET the MBT. That means a possible hit. Since the MBT has a armor save of +2/+3 the chan...

You know, I may be mistaken on that range thing. I state LOS, not range. I have been playing it with the +12". Maybe I'm wrong. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

Without going into great detail... You really need to buy the Main Rule book and read the Air Section.. 1. Ground units can only attack Air Units with AA weapons, unless the Air Unit is a V/STOL speed , in whcih case any shoot action may be targeted against them. 2.Ground units can react against Air...

Ahh, see I guess it would depend on the wall then. A small wall like that, yes. Something larger, no. Make sure to clarify w/ your opponent before the game starts. TOS, a building is a piece of terrain, per page 24 of the advanced rulebook, and therefore fits into the definition of cover. The playe...

As for low walls, what he mean't to say is that they do not count for cover for LOS purposes. They do for the cover bonus if touching it. If I'am on a rooftop but more than 1 inch away from the edge/roof wall and they is a squad across the street more than an inch from their roof edge/roof wall then...

I do not see this as a issue. Apparently there is a new player working a deal with MP. So everything is on hold, till the details are worked out.

It is not about the factory anymore. SO, the poll means little at this point.
