Machine Gun Area Fire

I have realised that in our rules we have not got area fire for Macine guns like the GPMG on a tripod.. We have grazing or "Graving" fire in a single line out to 600m for tripod mounted weapons but not area fire beyond this. Does anybody have any information on typical dimentions of such fire. How d...

A reference to Designing Defences

Re: Markers and blinds

We use card markers painted to blend in or at least not stand out on the table so they are not an eysore. On the hidden side they have a discreet small arrow to indicate the faceing.

Re: Turret vs hull hits?

Inevitably its a difficult issue, as alaways its a compromise. To a certain extent its dependent on range and elevation. You can be hull down to lower ground and not to higher ground and accuracy is a function of range. At very close range the dispertion may be small enough ypu don't miss but you do...
