Hi Peter.

Thanks for posting the rules. The game looks very cool.

But I am somewhat confused about the facing of the units.

On page 7 in the rulebook under 4.0 Facing the illustration shows the Tiger unit and as I can read it the direction it faces is upwards (or skywards) on the counter. Top of the tank towards a hex side.

But in this image
it's the turret of the Tiger unit that faces a hexside. All the other units in the picture also has turret or mussle of the rifles facing the hexside.

Also on page 10 of the manual under 8.2 Line of sight all the units in the illustartion has the turrets facing a hex side, except the Sherman in the top illustration that seems to be making a compromise by not alligning up to a hexside at all.

Can you clear up this confusion for me?

To me it seems that the facing illustration on page 7 has the wrong facing, since it would be natural to have the turret determine facing.

The illustration on page 7 is correct, the one in your post is just a promo shot to show counters against the map (it has stacking, which also violates the rules).
