Something to consider - order changes in operational games
Reading the Spearhead rule book -under changing orders the rules state:
"Order changes may be given to any battalion with an un - suppressed BC at any time AFTER any enemy forces have been spotted. At least one platoon of an enemy fighting battalion must be spotted to meet this requirement"
So as I understand the rules as they are written in relation to our operational games and the multi table concept mean that we really should not be allowing for order changes to be made to battalions that cannot spot enemy which are perhaps as is often on a different table but wishing to influence things on a table that has enemy on it?
Maybe I am missing something here but as its written it looks like orders need to be planned before play begins and changes to orders should be as written in the rules?
Spotting distance does not extend to other tables so how does a battalion 2 or even 3 tables away react to something it cant spot?
Are we playing the rules or as written or a house rule here?
