Also Phil's 250/9 gets a nice buff with the removal of the Open topped rule. Not sure I get that one though...
 

Still can get fragged by AT weapons, that just means no autokill in assault.

Bolt Action / Official FAQ and Errata

https://articles.warlordgames.com/new-bolt-action-errata-faq/?utm_source=Warlord+Games+Newsletter&utm_campaign=dcce4cd7c7-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_02_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b7e928b4ed-dcce4cd7c7-132851941&mc_cid=dcce4cd7c7&mc_eid=de819a7a20

This solves the question I had in our last game where I wasn't sure how to move a fixed weapon into some woods. It's now defined as a 6" run into rough terrain, which is what we figured but the rules as written suggested they simply couldn't enter the woods.

Also Phil's 250/9 gets a nice buff with the removal of the Open topped rule. Not sure I get that one though...

MVP;  if a particular squad/team performed particularly well, and both players are agreed, then a point for MVP can be awarded to the owning players total.  It is possible that both sides may have an outstanding unit, and can agree for mutual awards.

Theme; Theme is defined by several things.  Is a force based on a particular unit/battle?  Is it winter themed with snowy bases?  Or perhaps themed for urban fighting with bases of stone rubble and streets?  This is awarded only once, most likely near the end to give you time to finish your theme.

Best painted will also be voted on near the end with group voting.

Thanks Chris.


A few more questions still.

MVP, we decide on a single unit between both of us? The packet made us think it might be each player picking one unit on their side and one on the enemies.

How is theme defined? Are we voting for our own or our opponents' army each game? Or a later vote out of all participants at a later time?

Best painted is a vote for our own, or our opponents' each week? Or a later vote out of all participants at a later time?

Yeah, it is a bit confusing.  Besides the standard victory conditions, like in Key positions, the basic scoring is 1 point for every unit destroyed.  tally up how many of each sides squads were destroyed and compare the results.  A 0-1 point difference is a draw, a 2 point difference is a minor victory or minor loss, a more than 2 point difference is a clear Winner or a clear loss.

So, in my game yesterday,U.S. Airborne vs Italians in Demolition, I won by destroying my opponents base, so scoring is thus;  He destroyed 2 of my squads (Bazooka Team, Light Mortar Team) so he gets two points.  I achieved the objective, and destroyed 5 out of 6 of his units as well. So I had 5 points and a mission win.  ratio is 5-2  I therefore have achieved a clear win.  For the league then, scoring is thus;  I have a Major Win (4 points), no need for a tiebreaker based on destroyed units so thats done.  MVP is decided between players, we didn't have any real outstanding units going rambo across the table so nothing there.  Logistics scoring started yesterday so the only scoring would be for theme, and best painted.  Theme you're only going to get once, painted is by Army every three weeks.

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you have constructed. The power to snipe an RPG or team weapon is insignificant next to the power of failing to hit on a 3+.

Which, given my luck, will happen quite often.  >:(

We had a question today on scoring. The rules packet mentions major and minor victories, but we couldn't find where they were defined.

 We kept track of killed units and their points values, as well as the scoring for the specific scenario (key positions in this case) so hopefully we can figure out minor/major victory from that info?

Also can you explain how to determine score for the Pass The Ammo Award and how we should be keeping track of it (ie is it scored every game, or at the end of each round, etc?)

Yes, I will be there to take revenge on the despicable fiends blasting my men with anti tank rounds.

Thanks for the link  ;D

Sean, download the link below. I will leave it up for a few days so anyone else who wants it can grab it.

Also, can I assume you will be there to play tomorrow? I expect to only have time for one one game (that whole sport ball thing is kind of relevant to my wife and I - she is from Philly), but would be happy to get a rematch with your file assault rifle toting tottenkophers.

True enough. I'll just have my sniper take out the RPGs before they can fire at the guys in the building. :)
