I agree with the suggestion about making the crossing of fordable rivers easier. What about; all units must stop in a hex adjacent to a river hex before entering in their next movement phase; spend the next movement phase occupying the river hex during which they fight as if disrupted; they then lea...

WWII: Normandy, Battle in the Bocage!

Below is a battle report of one of our British v German encounters. IMG_1397.JPG IMG_1407.JPG In this scenario the German players (M...

Re: More H&H Medieval queries

Hi Robert, Broken ground Yes, the cavalry unit will only loose its inpact bonus when fighting a unit occupying a broken ground hex. Once the cavalry have entered the broken ground they fight 'as if disrupted' i.e. they cannot count their number of stands in hand-to-hand combat. They might later beco...

Hi Robert, Stakes, once planted only apply to two hex sides, usually the front two. The other 4 hex sides remain open.

Re: H&H Medieval queries

Hi, Skirmishing units, one stand per hex, cannot be shot at by enemy artillery or shooters unless in hex-to-hex contact. This contact usually only occurs when skirmish stands are unable to evade.

Re: Putting on a show for Hammerhead 2019!
