Alamein Errata and Clarifications
By Brian Knipple
depression hexes have no effects on movement. Units in a depression
hex can only be spotted by an adjacent enemy ground unit.
There is no effect on spotting by an enemy air unit.
2/200/90 and 3/200/90 Light Division units are missing from
the setup and should be set up with the division.
The 6th South African recon battalion should not set up in
0481 (a salt marsh hex, impassable to motorized & tank
units), but in hex 1075 (a holdover from the original hexgrid).
In the Italian 133rd Armored Division setup, all Tank Battalions
are present (but lose 7 steps). Ignore the “1 x 2-1-10
(morale 4 Tank company)” entry.
The 3/5M Indian Infantry is not set up in hex 41100 (the
middle of the Mediterranean), but in hex 36100. Ignore 3/5M
eliminated box listing.
Scenario losses do not include units already in the Eliminated
and Reduced boxes.
The 101 Trieste Division 8B Recon is not listed in the division
set up, but should be (it is required to be eliminated anyway).
The German 149 artillery is listed as being set up both with
Rommel and the 164th Light Division. Delete listing with 164th
In scenarios 3 and 4, the B and C/551 MG Companies are shown
setting up with both the 102nd and 101st Italian divisions.
Delete entry with 101st Division.
The Axis player's allotment of three He111 aircraft should
actually be Ju88. The allotment of four SM.79 aircraft should
be two SM.79 initially, with two SM.79 replacements available.
In the Campaign Game
The German 1/288 Motorized Infantry Battalion should be listed
as in the eliminated box. The 2/200/90 and 3/200/90 Motorized
Infantry Battalions should both be listed as setup with 90th
Light Division at start.
The British 50th Division’s 505th Engineer Company
should start in the eliminated box and the 74th Artillery
Battalion in the reduced units box (the 3-1-6 with the division
is the reduced-strength battalion).
Some divisions have a second leader counter besides the one
available at start. How do these enter play? These divisions
can replace leaders killed during the game. See rule 15.43.
How do these various leaders who do not arrive with their
divisions per OOA enter?
See above and 15.43.
How does the British Armor Leader Gairdner enter? Any
time that a British armored division leader is eliminated,
any other can replace him. British armor leaders have no formation
Scotti is the named leader of the 132nd Armored Division (Italian)
and also the 102nd (Italian) Division. In fact the name on
the 132nd counter should be Arena. Counter values are correct.
The British 3R and 3RTR Grant tank battalions
represent the same unit; use only one of them in play.
