Go get 'em Ronnie ;-).
Don't worry too much about the chinese. If Japan gets lucky, he can get very far against them. Nothing the allied player(s) can do about that. Same thing with Russia for that matter. Only thing you can do is make him pay for any average (or below) die roll. One or two of them could potentially halt the offensive for a lot of turns.

In my current game it's M/A '40 and the Japanese have reached the provinces of Kweichow and Kwangsi and the cities Chihkiang and Nanning (iow: Japan is doing very well).
So far, he was forced to start off with launching attacks at +6 (on average, and nothing better to get anywhere) but he got lucky and was able to open a gap. This gap is called Kweichow (roughly). Only 30% change to get bad weather there this turn and 60% next turn, I fear for the life of Nat. Chinese. And the Japanese combat rolls aren't helping either: so far the Japanese dice didn't stop rolling at anything <15. Even with +6 that's killing China. And now the odds are getting better for Japan because of the breach -snowball effect. Chinese need their share of luck pretty quick if they are to recover...

I understand how you can get multiple flyouts on the map, but how do you get the pictures of two units in a hex with one displaced up and to the side so that you can see both?

I use graphic editing program (gimp2, freeware). I capture the map, capture the individual flyouts, select (cut out) the individual units and then paste them into the map.

German Land Attacks:
Forgot to get the image for the last attack, but it was a complete success. Only one poor roll, but it resulted in the loss of an INF corp and the disorganization of a MECH. Should not dramatically impact the campaign.

Note, the Germans Blitzed the division in the forest and because the ARM entered the forest hex via a road hex, it was allowed to advance an extra hex. This allowed them to overrun the Polish fighter.

I started the next allied impulse (actions defined by rules and no allied decisions needed. This allowed me to set up the German Reserves before sending the file to Ronnie). The US entry roll of 5, resulted in 1 chit being pulled from the US entry pool.

Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. Allied #3. Allied Ground Strikes.

Do you wish to use AA against ground strike 1, 2 or both? I'm not sure the effects of surprise on AA fire ...

Ground strikes 1-3 are surprise (i.e., double rolls). The RAF Hampden (GSTK #2) is flying extend range so it's tactical factors are halved from 3 to 2 (rounded up).

The Polish ground strike (#4) is not a surprise (I believe) but MWiF will still roll double. Assuming this is a bug ... I will reorganize (by editing) any units disorganized on the second roll of this ground strike.

Save 1 to Perth and one to Calcutta. That's my plan anyway. For specifics see post #18 (on page 1).

I’m wondering because the map above only shows one CP in the South China Sea. Am I forgetting that the oil can reach Batavia by rail?

I think this has always begged a question of who gets to pick which oil goes to CW and which to Japan? Maybe whichever one is listed first in the Trade Agreement rule. Anyhow, I always set up 2 CW CP in S. China Sea for the oil. Maybe because I save them in Borneo and use them for re-org every turn.

Both NEI oil points start their seaward journey in the East Indian Ocean. Then 1 oil north through the Bay of Bengal to Calcutta and the second south through Cape Naturaliste to Perth.

The 88 AA gun will fire against the Hampden. I believe the AA factors should be halved, making the roll -1/6.

I am not sure about the polish ground strike. It seems odd that it would get the benefit of surprise, but it may be the way the rule is written. Other expert will know better than I.

RAW:

15. Surprise
Major powers and minor countries are surprised when a major power
declares war on them, even if they are already at war with someone
else. However, they are not surprised by a major power or minor
country they are currently at war with. Furthermore, they are not
surprised by land or aircraft units attacking from, or flying over, hexes
controlled by a major power or minor country at war with them last
impulse.


So: it's a bug.

RAF Hampden bombers dodge flak from the dreaded 88 mm AA guns, find their target and see their bombs hit home.

I'm stunned ... no need to worry about the bug that wouldn't have given the Polish bombers a second roll ...
