If you blitz you get to fight in any battle in the same front as the one where you've got a blitz HQ (i.e. a Blitz HQ activates blitz battles in any hex on the front) but only move in the Blitz phase for units in command.

This feels a little bit "gamey" to me - you blitz an HQ in Minsk and get to do an extra round of fighting in Murmansk and Baku for that.

Do you folks think it would be better to set a house rule saying that there's a blitz-battle range as a factor of the Blitzing HQ's CV or would that only add a bunch on unnecessary complications?

Either that or allow blitz battle anywhere. What do you folks think?

Any combats outside of command range are unsupported, I think this works fine. Wouldvwant to allow blitz combat everywhere because blitz in my mind is the dedication of excessive logistic resources to that front ( thus u wear down the hq) IMO it's not gamey but different strokes for different folks, playing wif again has made me appreciate how un-gamey this system is.

I don't think this is a major problem either. Of course there is situations where this is advantageous to the attacker, but not to the extent that it causes a gamey effect.

And in regards to your example, IIRC, Murmanks is in the NF (albeit the eastern part of the NF), so the blitzing doesn't reach there.
