Probably should have asked this before, but what does "successful tank assault" actually mean? Strictly speaking, this would be an assault by a tank but I don't think that's what you had in mind given the follow-up rules.

Assuming that it's infantry assaulting a tank, what's the definition of "successful"? Do you just have to make contact? Cause a hit? Cause damage? Destroy it?

Which definition of "tank" are we using? Does it have to be a tank or are we using the definition from p110 of the rulebook (i.e. any vehicle with armour 8+)? Or the definition from p112 (any fully enclosed armoured vehicle)?

Sorry. This is what happens when I start thinking about things.

Follow up question:
The objective says "using a squad". Does this mean that other types of infantry unit (HQs, teams etc) don't count? As it stands, a Russian/Japanese/Chinese player couldn't score this objective if they assaulted with a tank hunter team, which seems odd.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for pointing out my shonkily written objective  :embarrassed:  :laugh: . Tank = 8+ Armour vehicle, Squad = any infantry, weapons or HQ team that destroy said 'tank' following the rules for 'Infantry assaulting vehicles on P112/113.

I hope that's clearer :)

2nd Round Pairings

Gary M      vs Grahame
Andy Mellor  vs Boris D
Michael J F  vs Tony S
Phil F      vs Rob
Tom G        vs Dale
Dan P        vs Andy Miller
Newt        vs Chris D

That wasn't too hard, the way the points table looked worked quite well in avoiding 'blue on blue' in the match ups.

If I've left anyone out let me know. I will trun up with my army so if we've got any drop outs we will make sure that everyone has a game :)

I'm afraid I will have to drop out tonight.
Sorry Rob.
Please leave me out of this round, unless there is anyone else not coming tonight and they wish to play at another point.
