Have you ever had a game where your troops were scrambling for cover and made a poor choice?


It looked bigger from the outside!

My troops hunkered down in a fox hole, two turns later, they got ruin over by a tank. Surprise!

I think that the cat is practicing pouncing on mice through snow. Notice how it landed perfectly on its hind legs. This jump was not a mistake; the cat did not think that the box was actually a cardboard TARDIS.

To respond to the OP: It's happened a few times in StarGrunt that troops in the open decided to run for cover and got stuck in the open. Infantry move in two ways in StarGrunt, either normal movement at 6 inches per action, or tactical movement at 2d6 inches per action. Tactical movement typically results in moving 7 inches, so it's generally better than just walking at 6 inches. Of course, it is possible to roll a 2, 3, or 4, as infantry squads in my games have found out over and over.

"OK, my activation -- this squad has line of sight on the infantry in the open, and mortars arrive immediately, so first action will be calling in a mortar strike!"

Cover is that the thing the enemy uses to try and hide from my death-dealing.

I prefer impetuous armies…

This feline is well known among the experimental archaeology community. In the above footage he was testing his novel theory concerning techniques used by 13th century knights to more easily don their helmets.
