Never play block wargames with a dentist, they have those little mirrors to peek behind the block.

I was looking on the Rorkes Drift map at the storage and hospital buildings but I had trouble seeing where the windows and doors where in the buildings, to me they were not marked distinctly. Would anyone be able enlighten me? thanks All I could figure out Zone G was a door.

From memory, most doors and windows were fairly clearcut
on old VC (even the high hospital window near the watercart)
except on the far walls of the hospital.

For the storehouse, aren't all the windows and doors
facing the courtyard?

I guess the windows are implied. After looking at the map closer since I posed the question all the building zones to have zones printed in on the map to where they can fire. I would assume there are doors to the courtyard.

In the movie, and in the real battle, troopers used bayonets and other tools to make loop holes/firing holes in the walls as needed.

But this begs the question:

"Is melee allowed between the 'top' zones of the hospital
and the outside?"

It wasn't in the original....
