  • Games are permissive rule sets… it tells you what you can do.. if it doesnt tell you then you cant do it.  Using other games systems as a why cant we is genrally not a good place to start espically when they are written by different people…. that out of the way :p

  • Shouldn’t be to hard to do a Russian civil war (1917-1919?) The french, us and British forces are ww1 .. just need to work out the OrBats of the red and white Russians

    You can also do Chinese civil war using the empires in flames Chinese lists…same book also has the sino-russian war of the mid to late 30s

    Hi,

    yes you have the right of it…local 1 with nothing in the AD column of the battery will give you only 1 dice only to AA with and can only target flights that are touching its base

  • Hi,

    AA – in the movement phase local X may shoot any aircraft flight that passes over  the ship…this number of dice maybe used once per flight that passes over….

    At the start of the shooting phase AA + local X may shoot at any flights touching the base of the ship BEFORE any ship is chosen to fire…each AD can only be used once.. chose…[Read more]

  • Nat replied to the topic spotter and holding objectives in the forum Bolt Action 1 week ago

    Personally I’d have said no… because a spotter is an upgrade to a unit not a unit him (or her)self.. in that they dont provide an order die (they merly use the mortar /howitzers*)  & unless the FAQ says otherwise that’ll be the way I’ll play it

     

    *dont forget the spotter runs away when their gun/mortar dies /runs…..

    About the Soviet infanty (not just SMG) companies….lets be honest with something like 8 rifle battalion org changes (including 3 guard changes) between April 41 and  May 45  its no wonder people get confused as to when and how they where formed :p

    I mean it reads like some units could well have ‘skipped’ an org change because it happened so f…[Read more]

    Yeah it was one of the changes to the red army after the winter war with Finland in 39/40 (the formation of SMG equipped companies…. cant remember if they were their own battalions or just a company within the normal battalion structure… its also where the first tank rider units came from.. but thats another topic :p)

    If you go to the facebook group – ‘Blood Red Skies Ready Room’ and look in the files section there is a FAQ file (latest is March this year) by Andy Chambers (the Author of the game)…

    however the errata section (so points change on the P51, the Yak1 & something else) has gone missing … again! but there is a file from about a year ago with…[Read more]

  • 1.  You can use the emplacements as terrain peices or as basing materials… which ever takes your fancy.. there is no right or wrong answer

    2. Yeah you dont always get enough of the weapons you want in the boxs… for example the Soviet Infantry box doesnt give enough rifles… so if you can either use them then count as normal rifles when…[Read more]

    Make it that you take damage if you leave..the same as if you are becalmed or drop 2 sails levels.

     

    another alternative is to allow the following ship(s) to target the one that has left the table…measuring to the exit point.  The ship that left can’t fire back as all the crew are attempting to tack the ship round

  • AA batteries are 360 arc

    DP just allows the weapons system to target aircraft at half range ..and must either target aircraft or surface ships (no mixing target)

     

    so using 5” guns at 6” range do I use half the AD or a quarter?

  • Might I suggest ospreys men at arms boom 141…napoleons line infantry …

     

    basically it it boils down to regimental preference … there is no one size fits all answer you need to look at the regiments in question.
