Thanks chaps.

Iain, I had to check back with Nathan about how he organised the game re your questions, I attach the reply he sent me.

Cheers

JJ

Did you do without the patrol phase to add to the randomness of the German arrival and have the Brits already set up on the table?
The British force deployed their defences and jump of points initially, the three jump off points were within the town perimeter, one at the Mansion, one at the Church/Monastry, one in the town square area, allowing the deployment in any of the surrounding buildings the idea being that they were garrisoned in the town.
The FJ players then diced for each of their jump of points, each player having two JoP’s each, basics were 1,2 for one side of long edge, 3,4 for bottom short edge, 5,6 for other long edge then another 1 to 6 roll for what area they deployed in, ie a 2 rolled would allow player to deploy JoP in 2′ to 3′ edge, a 3 rolled deploy in 3′ to 4′ area, therefore they would deploy JoP on table edge but could in effect end up beyond the British defence line…

And, how did the German’s come onto the table again (sorry being a bit dense this morning)? Did they roll for activation then have to roll above a certain number on a d6 to enter the table like when there’s a barrage going on?
The FJ players were rolling their command rolls initially on turn one as normal, but unbeknown to them anyone they did not bring on after turn one would have to roll again, as they were not under command of leader, this is great if you have umpire running the game, the other way is just to roll as normal and then randomise whether they come on or not.

The Germans had first command roll as they were performing surprise a.m. attack…

TFL have lists for early FJ’s and this has interesting dispersals rules in, but as always how you interpret them is up to you, play the period and not the rules…

Enjoy, if there is anything else please drop us a line.

Regards,
Nathan
