The Mighty Storch Thu, 27 December 2007 17:55
I noticed a thread on the topic of the Storch and it's Recon ability so I thought I would share this with all of you here.

My wife and I were playtesting the Air rules so of course, we tried out all of the planes. We were about to play one of the beach landing scenarios and were picking our planes (I was the Allies and took a P-38 Lightning) when I noticed my wife picked the Storch. "Are you sure you want to take that one?" I asked, "It can't strafe". She acknowledged the fact that it couldn't strafe but was insistent on taking it. Having few cards as the Axis, it made some sense I thought.

Before long, I had to get my plane on the field... see what it could do. I did a nice little strafing run and was well on my way up the beach. Then the mighty Storch came out. My wife flew the plane right next to my P-38. At first, I wasn't sure why she had done this, then it became clear.

Not only did she get to execute a Recon (because she was next to an enemy unit) but she would then force a 2 dice Air Check on my P-38!

Although quite crafty on my wife's part, it seemed out of place for the plane itself. I submitted my after action report with the recommendation that the Storch only be allowed to Recon if next to enemy ground units. Unfortunately the wording never made it on to the card.

It is in the rules though. I posted a question on the Card Compendium so they can answer and record it there as well.

Indeed. I've only been married a year (on the 29th) and I'm starting to discover that same fact. I'm glad she's on my side when it comes to life! Very Happy Laughing

Congrats, Ras! 29th of this month? HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, my friend!!!!

Marriage is the best thing that ever happened to me. Married 23 years, and still madly in love!

Some tips for you (but being married a year, you've obviously figured out some of this already!):

If she says she's right, even if you know the opposite to be true...she's right.

If she says your wrong, run for cover.

Burn your anniversay date in your brain....forget, and you better run for cover.

Hey, I got more, but those are the essentials!

Go get 'em, tiger!
