Osprey will be working from home from Tuesday 17th March. We plan to continue all our operations, while reducing risk of infection by having staff work from home. Please note that we are doing our best to manage incoming post and parcels. For the time being please refrain from sending items to our offices and please assume that items that you have sent to us, have not arrived with their intended recipient. Our priority remains the wellbeing of staff, authors, customers, freelancers, suppliers and distributors. We would like to thank all for their support whilst we transition to virtual operations.

A few thoughts :

p.23 - Are Blinds static or must they be revealed to move?  The obvious answer is yes, but why couldn't they move cautiously if they remain out of sight?

p.24 - Troops revealed (from a Blind) cannot be Hidden.  Why not, if they are still in cover?  Shouldn't it be the contrary?  Blinds are inherently for troops that you want to remain hidden...


p.25 - Underfire DED check for a lone individual in the open : as in a model which has no friendlies within 3''?


p.29 - Noise generated by Smoke : 2 for smoke on the board or 2 per instance of smoke?

p.29 - Explosions generate Noise counters from the smoke.  Rules say to go see p.15, which is for L.O.S. blocking smoke.  What confuses me is that the last sentence says the Noise counters remain in play until the turn after next, even if the smoke from an explosion isn't marked on the board as L.O.S. blocking smoke is... or is it?  Wouldn't it be simpler to state that an explosion provoques 5 Noise counters on the turn it happens and then, just like L.O.S. smoke does, the cloud of dust that remains the following turn causes ½ the amount of Noise (round down)?

p.45 - Civilian Loyalties : When their reaction is positive, shouldn't they reveal an enemy's Blind... not necessarily the defender's?
