ORBAT Typo & Flaws Reporting

Recommended Posts

In the stats provided with Codename automata have two different points values, 20 in the support section and 30 if taken as a line section.

That's deliberate. Much like the HMG sections have Xpts for the first and (X+5)pts for the second. Your robots are basically cheaper, if you have humans as your main line infantry. It would be to balance the fact that a robot army won't run away

How do you know this? If that's the case it is interesting as a concept but it should really be explained in the unit stats otherwise it looks just like a typo. Is the drone controller also having different stats between the line section and the support section also intentional?

It occurs in a few places, like the Prussians (I'm more familiar with that ORBAT... :P ). A Regular Grenadier is 25pts, but in the Field Gun team, he's 35pts. I think its a balance thing, or a very specific and repetitive typo...  :lol:

To be fair it is also the easiest type of typo to have. You set an initial value for the posts cost in several places, you play test some more and notice it needs adjusting, you don't have a way of updating them all at once so you just update all the ones that come to mind and thus neglect to update one of the values.

 

This type of typo happens all over the place in all kinds of documents.

I believe (though cannot be entirely sure of course) that the cost of Regular Assault Ashigaru is a typo, as it puts them at 40pts where Regular Battle Ashigaru are 30pts.  As they have the exact same stats and gear, the cost for Militia Ashigaru in both sections is 20pts and the Veteran Ashigaru Kono can take are 35pts, this seems to be a misprint.

I think, there is mistype in the Prussian ORBAT in the Landwehr Section (page 9).

 

As it is stated that "Up to 2 Landwehr may be upgraded to Landwehr specialists..." in the "number" column it should be stated "0-2" instead of "0-1".

 

For the same case in the Britannia Line Infantry Section the number of specialists is "0-2".

Also there is one little mistype on that page.

 

The title is "Landwehr Battle Section" but in the "Section size" two lines below it is stated "Landwher Assault Section".

 

In the Prussian ORBAT as of 11 October there are still the above mentioned mistypes in place.

After my game yesterday I was wondering if some of the big guns in the ORBAT aren't missing the Lethal MAR. It is just weird if a model gets hit in the face by a 122 pdr Shell and still keeps on going. We had the situation where the Teutonic Knight officer was standing in front of the barrel of the Terrier, knowing that I couldn't kill him so he could give my tank a good trashing next round.

I understand that it increases the value of multiple lifepoint units (it was the first time the knights weren't hidding behind a smoke screen) but then I don't get how you can give the CoA the Order Increase to Power 11 when everyone who isnt' breathing carrys a Energy Weapon.

Its a 1869 model of the standard rifle with a semi-automatic reciever and a gravity fed box magazine

 

Well, this week I've been able to read the Iron Scorpion booklet and it actually doesn't mention that.

 

In fact, on page 20 it says that the Legionnaires carry the "Fusil Modele 1867", or the Chassepot rifle.

It then goes to say that the sergeant himself used a "Fusil Mitrailleur Modele 1869", or FM69. In English, Fusil Mitrailleur means a light machine gun, or possibly I guess a submachine gun.

Then on page 26, they tell a story from the perspective of Sergeant Pierre, and state "He kept his submachine gun at the ready now"

 

It seems quite clear through the book that the sergeants in Codename Iron Scorpion do indeed carry submachine guns that are distinct from their squads Chassepot rifles.
