A good question - I find no mention of what they are used for in the scenario notes - hmmmm?

Another question:
Scenario 15 - Manado Landings:
What is the meaning of the 5 hexes marked with a "battlestar" Rolling Eyes


One sentence was left out of the special rules section. The paragraph about para-dropping units onto the board should have read,
Quote:

"Once in full daylight, as long as the Axis player has enough figures to form full airborne units, he may attempt to airdrop units on hexes marked with a battle star each turn (Actions 20 - Paradrop). Each paradrop requires an order (for example, with an "Attack" card, the Axis player may airdrop 3 units, or move 2 ground units and airdrop 1 unit, etc.). Each time a unit successfully drops on one of these hexes, remove the corresponding battle star (to keep track of the total number of units dropped).


The bold text is missing from the book. Enjoy! Cool

I believe you hold a figure over a Star Token, drop it, and remove the corresponding Token. You will do 5 airdrops and remove 5 tokens...but no, they don't have to land on the Token. You do have to hold your hand over the tokens though...instead of dropping your paratroopers over the beach or something.

These questions and many others are already in the FAQ and will be available with the next update.

Stig, does this mean your copy arrived? Very Happy
