Re: Classical Antiquity: winners post your results here . . .

Division D vakarr (Thracians) defeated bomber23 (Syracusans) 55-18 after a terrific tussle which could have gone either way. There was a hill covering most of the front of both armies with a wide stream at the bottom, between the armies. There wasn't a great deal of disordering terrain but there was...

medium spears cost the same as hoplites?

If medium spearmen come up against protected hoplites, they are the same points as each other, but the hoplites have the advantage in open terrain (ie most of the time) as they are heavy foot. I think this is a bit wrong and there should be one or two points difference between them - I keep coming u...

Gaining Experience

Hi, sometimes I see a flash above one unit when a nearby enemy unit is destroyed, other times I see nothing. I read that every unit within three hexes of a destroyed enemy unit is supposed to get some experience. Is that correct, and if so, what does the flash above one unit only mean? Also, if you ...

Re: Beginner's Guide Video Series

you can only form square with pikes, and then it makes no difference to the combat factors except that the unit cannot be flanked and is now almost invulnerable to anything except other pikes or impact foot. If you have a pike unit facing more than one cavalry unit out in the open, consider forming ...

Re: Beginner's Guide Video Series

Actually I did say that impassable River crossings are a killing zone, though not in so many words, and not like Total War - if you are defending, you get to shoot at the attacker before he crosses, then when he does cross he is on one square and has to fight three squares on your side, though you g...

Re: Beginner's Guide Video Series

Well one thing you can take advantage of, is that the AI only reacts to forces within 5 squares of it, and even then may only react with the forces in that sector. This is dependent on what sort of armies are facing each other and the terrain, as if the AI thinks it has a good chance, it will advanc...
