While I know this is true for normal attacks, does it still apply in an overrun where individual squads are considered separate units? I always assumed that it didn't. Then again, I always do individual INF attacks against treads anyway, so it's never really come up for me...

No, it's a normal attack thing only. It's a carryover from the fact you can have 3 squads grouped together. In an overrun, that's no longer the case, so each 1-squad is a discreet unit and each attacks individually.

I was reminded of this when I got a notice from W23 of an updated "Scenario Book 2" a few days ago.

Ok I am talking about the links in the first post of this thread.

Shout out if you find typos or anything game-breaking - thanks!

Ogre Designer's Edition - Rules Update v. 1.01 - 21 June 2014.pdf (639.6 KB, 362 views)
Ogre Designer's Edition - FAQ v. 1.01 - 21 June 2014.pdf (639.4 KB, 274 views)
The items you were referencing is in a Kickstarter for Ogre Minitures. And apparently only backers of THAT kickstarter can access it. (I only backed the Original big Ogre Designer's Edition.)

So my question still remains,
Was there ever an update to the:
Ogre Designer's Edition - Rules Update v. 1.01 - 21 June 2014.pdf
or even better and update to the ODE Rules manual to include the updated rules.

Sorry for the delay in responding to the replies.

Here is the latest, most up-to-date, definitive rule set. This takes the Ogre Designer's Edition rulebook, corrects the errata, and adds all of the new material.

I can't recall where I snagged it, but the "Battle Box" rules are now available online, and are the latest and greatest revision to all the rulebooks.

So does that mean we should start working on the new versions of the errata/rules docs? :-)

Actually, yes.

I'm under no illusions that it is completely perfect. We've added way too much new material for there not to be at least the possibility of some overlooked fringe case that was missed. I think we've covered everything, but I won't be shocked to find out I'm wrong.

We will be printing this rulebook again for Battlefields. That gives us another opportunity to correct anything y'all find. We constantly strive to be better; if you all can help us do so, great!

I see a 3d cardboard radar dish; rules 3.06.

Was there a 3d radar dish? What counter sheet was that?
