Do Tigers ever have to retreat because of flags rolled? If so, does this happen after the initial roll or the re-roll?

Tigers retreat just like every other unit. If their retreat bath is cut off, it counts as a hit and will need to be re-rolled. In the re-roll, you ignore any results except the Grenade, so the Flag is only applied in the initial roll.

If any hits are obtained on the attack die rolls, reroll for grenades to see if the tiger is destroyed (ingonre flags here). If the Tiger survives and any flags were rolled (not including the reroll dice) retreat the tiger as normal. Please note that is a Tiger cannot retreat, a flag is treated as a hit and in each such case, a reroll for elimiantion is made.

Where can this rule be found, please? I've not come across it yet, (but I'm a newbie, so it's not surprising!). Is it found in the base set, or is it an additional rule in one of the expansions?

well, that's just it. i haven't read it anywhere and personally i don't think this particular instance is well explained on the Tiger summary card. Tigers are found in the "Tigers in the snow map expansion".

I believe the card was it -- there was not a section in any rules set for the Tigers. This lead to a series of questions reagrding them and these are entered in the Official FAQ.

Isn't there a detailed rule page about Tiger tanks that comes with the battle map? I'm not at home to look, but I thought there was something like that and it spelled out the rules a little more than the Summary Card.

I don't see it online yet, so I could be wrong or it could be that it just hasn't been uploaded. Smile

My version of tigers in the snow just had the map, the tigers and the two bonus scenarios. No sheet of Tiger rules.

Obviously can't speak for anyone else though.

Here is what i received in my Tigers exp:

1 backprinted OL map w/ 2 scenarios: TIGERS in the SNOW & MARKET-GARDEN

1 scenario sheet w/ 2 scenarios

6 Tiger tank minis

So, no rules sheet.

All right, I had thought there was a rules page for it, but I guess not. So we must know this stuff from talking about it here on the forum right after the map came out, right? Razz

DoW did not make one, so I did! It's on my projects page.

You are correct sir. There were a number of questions and they were hashed out here.

Jesse, you might be talking about the rules page for Supply trucks(Issued online some time after hedgerow Hell) or the rules page for the COmbat Deck(Included as a sheet in The Sword Of Stalingrad battlemap).

Tigers is basically like any other unit in Memoir. First you resolve the hits and then you retreat. Only difference is that Tigers need a reroll to resolve hits.

You're exactly right, Stig Morten, that's what I was thinking about. I suspect that since Tigers are relatively straight forward units, DoW didn't believe a whole page was needed. I have to say that they were probably right about that. I can't imagine there would be much written on the page! Very Happy

And like 50th said, he made one for us, so we're all set! Cool
