That saves 4 more supply, which I bank. Total is now 11, so I'll buy another impulse [11=10=1 left]. We now start at German B.
96 8/16/2018 4:30:00 PM Turn 6 Germans-Hammond Message The Utah Beach depot can't refit units in SME, because it's a flooded boundary. For a supply line to cross a flooded boundary, you must own the bridge (but I own it).

63 8/13/2018 2:55:00 PM Turn 6 Germans-Hammond Message OK so the tank flips to spent, that nullifies the assault roll which now could not have taken place. So the clock rolls back to that point. You can still land your other units, and potentially still assault, but you'd need a new assault roll. And new coastal rolls for add'l units landing if so
62 8/13/2018 2:54:00 PM Turn 6 Allies-Pacheco Message Spent. Ignore the rest of A1 impulse.

I find this rules set tough to get my head around at times. It seems like it could be organized better.

59 8/11/2018 4:14:00 PM Turn 6 Germans-Hammond Message Two issues with that impulse:
1) I have a fresh CA in Port-en-Bessin that needed to fire at your armor as it landed. Please roll for that now. If the roll is a '1' then the assault could not have taken place
2) MF can't be used to repair bridges. Also, bridge repair can only occur as the first action in an activation (before move/attack), and the activated area must be friendly-controlled and uncontested. In this case, you activate the Gold Approach box, not Gold Beach which has the bridges adjacent to it.

44 8/7/2018 1:43:00 AM Turn 6 Germans-Hammond Message Correction: your post re: the Omaha assault stated it was a 10:9 (if I used the spent CA as my lead) - in using the fresh infantry my defens was 10:8, not 10:7 as I wrote. So 5 hits... that part doesn't change, I took 5 in my previous post. Over to you for 6A0. I'll send my Vassal map shortly
43 8/6/2018 6:31:00 PM Turn 6 Germans-Hammond Message Impulse 6G0- activate Caen. Pak/21Pz and Flak/21Pz move to Bretteville; your pulse. No map
42 8/6/2018 6:30:00 PM Turn 6 Germans-Hammond Message Play sequence - technically the Allies must declare all first waves, roll for interdiction for each, and only then actually roll for the first wave assaults - as opposed to 'roll coastal, roll assault for beach #1, then roll coastal and then assault for beach #2', etc.

I'll let it stand as-is. But keep that in mind, as playing out of sequence allows the other player to roll back the clock to the first illegal roll.
.
Omaha bombardment: I flip the 726/716 infantry
.
Sword assault: CA to D1 for 1 hit, and 736/716 from SP (spent) to D2 and retreats to Caen for the other 3 hits
.
Omaha assault: as mentioned earlier I reserved the right to lead my defense with something other than the CA. Had you paused I would have chosen the fresh infantry, making the assault a 10:7 rather than 10:8, so I have 5 hits to take. Fresh infantry (916/352) and FA/352 (FA= field artillery) to SP for 2 hits. Then both infantry and the artillery retreat to Trevieres for the other 3 hits. Leaving the Spent CA as the last unit on the beach.

41 8/6/2018 3:30:00 PM Turn 6 Allies-Pacheco Message A=17 vs. G=13 for 4 CPs. You have options.

Utah: 4/22 assaults alone vs. Utah @ +7 vs. +3
28 8/6/2018 2:53:00 PM Turn 6 Allies-Pacheco Message Okay, makes sense.

You still need to take 2 APs on Omaha from NB.

Initial Landings:

Utah: 4/22
Gold: all 50th Div. infantry
Juno: all 3 CA Div. infantry
Sword: all 3rd Div. infantry and both SS
Omaha: all non-artillery
27 8/5/2018 4:24:00 PM Turn 6 Germans-Hammond Message Also you'll have to roll for the Utah assault again, as it was rolled out of order (assault before coastal interdiction)
26 8/5/2018 4:22:00 PM Turn 6 Germans-Hammond Message Everything looks good so far, except the Coastal interdiction but you caught that. So you have to declare which units are landing in your first wave for all five Allied beaches, before actually assaulting any beach. In this case, you have already chosen to land 1 unit at Utah and it landed ok. Now choose Omaha/Gold/Juno/Sword and roll for coastal for each, then roll for the assault for each. Thanks!

Also - are you with exchanging Vassal files during the game? It helps to do so after basically every move (maybe not after missed bridge demos or missed bombardments). Or at the very least after major moves and definitely for Refit and Regroup. If so, please use the current BKN vassal module which is 3.2.15
25 8/4/2018 7:52:00 PM Turn 6 Allies-Pacheco Message I think I'm going to pause here and let you double-check things so far. I'm feeling a bit rusty.
