Now ifthe ability on page 67 read "tactical move action" i would agree.

Fair enough. Doesn't make sense as written. Should be 'tactical move' in my opinion. And quite a few units that are now lumbering shouldn't have it applied to them. Slow moving plus the vagaries of the command system means that units are pretty slow anyway.

I also think that for some of the units the whole deploy then fire, and deploy then move can be a bit much.

Lumbering Matildas will also be outstripped by men on foot!

But, we are all discussing a set of rules that the publishers have acknowledged are broken, not fit to use and are going to replace. All that needs to happen now is a diligent team need to spot all the mistakes.  Cryŵ

If you look at the bit about ground scale and time scale, it seems that a lumbering vehicle with a move of 15cm can manage about 1.2 km / hour (less than 1 mph). And that's​being generous, could be even less.

I know there were some slow vehicles, but not that slow.

Yeah lumbering really is an unnecessary addition IMHO.

It slows the game down, and at the meantime provides a huge advantage to a Defender.
It would seem that the lumbering special rule brings the points of an anti tank gun WAY down. In a defence an anti tank gun that is in a prime position and who doesn't need to move will be as potent as it used to be at a quarter of the price in points!

Actually poking fun at the special rule that shouldn't be.  Or is that the special rule which should not be named?

Could be a Monty Python skit.   Oh, I'm a lumbering and that's okay, I don;t move far and sleep all day. Cheesy

Gentlemen, we have our new Kipling!

I like a Matilda. Especially against Pz I, II and the Czech stuff - the majority of Pz Divs in 1940.
