1. If I gain a hero and haven't got any left in the counter mix is the gain forfeited?
2. The inner sleeve to Not One Step Back says I can't stack gold Soviet line units with red Guard units (with the exception of the commissar and the nurse). Does that mean guards can't stack with T34s, KV1s etc (which are all gold)? Probably not but I thought I'd ask. (OK. I know this applies to NOSB and not to BoH but I figured that you are a friendly bunch and won't hold it against me.)
I apply this only to MMCs, not vehicles.
3. What is the point of those pesky tank crews? Is it just that there is an off chance of them getting their arses in gear in two game-turns time and killing somebody?
In theory, they could help / hurt chances for victory as they can be killed, or take a VP hex for example, if ignored. Honestly - I don't like them all that much as they don't (in my opinion) add anything to gameplay.
