Great episode as always guys! The video is a nice addition as well (although I mostly listen to it while I do other stuff, not least gluing and setting up my own Dust models :) )

Just one small note about support weapons: they have been revised in the latest FAQs (p.5), so now each miniature can use one weapon (you no longer need two to fire the support weapon). At the same time, the Mercs antitank squad will be able to use only 3 of its 4 weapons with each attack.

Hm, that's interesting. I read that part of the FAQ as meaning the Support Weapon can possibly be manned by one miniature but the rule in the book still applies if there are at least two left. Meaning that you can cross that one off if you only lose one miniature, even if two are required to fire it if there are two or more left.

Well, technically do not FAQ override previous rule?
I am not against the old version, but the new rule really reads just that "the support weapon can be manned by only one miniature" and there is no longer any mention at all at the need to use more than one mini to shoot the support weapon.

That is interesting.  I thought the FAQ was trying to show that you have to mark off a weapon that corresponds to the miniature removed.  However, the support weapon is only crossed off when the last miniature is removed even if there is no other weapon to cross off, the second example in the FAQ.  This is where the weapon can be used by one takes effect.  I thought it was two miniatures to shoot the support weapon, unless only one miniature is alive then it can use the support weapon by itself.  The idea being that if he is the only one alive he can Ruiz that machine gun and solo fire it.

Iīd like to see the rules changed a little bit : 1 remaining figure can fire the support weapon but canīt move it for the rest of the game .
What do you think about that ?
