    Hi All, I have a couple of queries re the Dark July scenario ‘the battle for Oktiabrskii State Farm‘, has anyone seen anything from LnL relating to;

    First up in the OOB should the Soviets get three roadblocks or three trenches?

    Second re the two special fortified buildings and the rule they can only be entered by the opposition if ‘all defenders’ (note doesn’t specify MMC or SMC just defenders) in them are shaken how do Heroes affect this as they can’t be shaken?

    Thanks!

    Oh we played it using roadblocks as on our first edition OOB and Heroes needed to be wounded to enter the fortified buildings...Soviets won..turn eight P5 was besiged and holding out with two Heros (one wounded), a squad with LMG and a WT...that’s all they had left on the board!

    1) 3 x Roadblock in DJ1 and DJ2x, 3 x Trenches in DJ43, the most recent version
    2) Good point about Heroes needed being wounded for the Attacker to be able to enter their hex for Melee

    Hi Stéphane!

    Thanks for your reply!

    Re 2) so you think Heroes do need to be wounded regarding the special fortified building entry or is that overkill?

    You’ve had a busy day today it seems.

    Funnily we are considering revisiting Dark July it being July ...

    Cheers!

    Hi Captain!

    Well, a ruling had to be made because they don't shake, You offered a solution and the SSR as written could be interpreted such as allowing a leader alone, with no SW, to hold off melee so why not a unwouded hero?


    I'm in the process of updating the Clarifications & Corrections document, for which I'm going through all past messages on BGG, CSW, FB and here. Might as well answer some questions along the way :)
