Playing my first game Bloody Omaha, and need clarifications. According to rule excerpt below, HQ, recon and artillery units are placed alone in landing phase 1, but the 3 companies stacking limit suggests HQ and Recon can advance in phase 2 and 3 and stack with Infantry or Armor units subject to 3 companies stacking limit. Can someone clarify?
"Stacking in Assault Hexes: During the June 6 Invasion Turn, each Assault Hex in the Landing Queue has a stacking limit of 3 companies or one battalion. Once placed, these are the only units that may land during the landing sequence."
"Other Units in Assault Hexes: Headquarters and units such as Recon and Artillery that are placed into the Assault Hexes may only land in a Beach hex that is not adjacent to any enemy unit or Strongpoint. They are placed alone and are not broken down for landing, and artillery units are flipped to their “MOVED” side (even if mechanized.) Both may stack as they move up in the queue."
My interpretation is that these units need to stack alone in the landing queue during the Invasion turn, but they stack normally with whatever else once they hit the beach, based on their printed stacking value. I'd go by unit size as printed on the counters.
