CLOSING REMARKS

(1) French: Greg B. and Bob B.    Russian: Matt L with Bill P.

(2) Village is not in play. It is there for atmosphere and to show the Russian LOC.

(3) Use 28mm movement rates and weapon ranges.

(4) Suggestion: Turn 1 double move.

(5) Suggestion: Use pp 95-96 Corps Commander rules to maybe increase the number of ADCs.

(6) Battlefield: 6'x8'. Deployment Zones 6'x2'.

(7) All units classified as "Line" to simplify things.

(8) Elevations are at a 1:1 ratio of height to miniatures. No fancy calculations needed. Use a laser pointer if needed. Undulations exist providing some cover; "hull down" in WWII parlance.

(9) To help with rules implementation we are sharing the following duties:
  • Bill P. Officers/Activation/Initiative.
  • Greg B. Weapons Fire
  • Matt L. Melee
