I'm midway through my first game and a number of simple yes/no questions have come up. Please lend me your wisdom!
1. Can you fire when wounded?
2. If you are outside the trench, the only enemies you can shoot with a gun are those on the firing steps. But can you shoot an enemy who is prone upon the firing steps?
You can shoot just at enemies who plotted an AIM or QUICK SHOT action AND are on the firing steps. So no prone targets
If Adjacent to the trench any target inside can be fired.
3. If a grenade explodes in no man's land but within 4 hexes of the inside of a trench (or the firing steps) can enemies in the trench (or on the firing steps) be hit?
4th paragraph, Grenade section: If a grenade explodes outside the trench, it affects only those soldiers outside the trench. (If inside, just those soldiers inside.
4. The rules say that if a grenadier with an unpinned grenade is knocked to a prone position, that grenade is then dropped onto that same hex. Does that mean that it will explode on the next turn under its own grenadier?
Yes, if the pin was previously pulled.
This thing is a blast. I'll have to make up some log sheets for it, though.
I did one in typewriter times, a bit old-fashioned, but I still use it
