Archers vs Slingers

Is the only difference between light infantry archers and slingers the range and points value, or do they have differing effects on their target, e.g. slingers do better against armoured targets?

Re: Shooting rules changed?

Gosh I must be so unlucky, it's happened again in my latest league game. Maybe there has been an increase in the numbers of troops in units or some other characteristic of a medium battle that is making it harder to get the cohesion drop?

Re: Please don't make me come and get you.

One of my first league battles was against Romans, on a constricted mountain battlefield with water all down one side and mountain all down the other - and clear terrain between. Ideal Roman terrain! I had a hill and a wood at my end of the battlefield but I take the view that if you just sit there,...

Re: medium spears cost the same as hoplites?

That's good to hear, I recently got beaten by an AI Egyptian army after never having been beaten by the AI in an equal points clash since my first few games - the changes to AI tactics have certainly made the AI a tougher opponent!

Shooting rules changed?

I'm finding it more difficult to disrupt my opponent's troops by shooting and I was wondering if there has been a change to the effectiveness or rules of shooting? It used to be that if you got three units to shoot at an average unit at short range while standing still, that would usually (not alway...

Re: medium spears cost the same as hoplites?

So in the most common circumstance - average medium spears vs average heavy spears in open terrain, the medium spears are at a disadvantage and it says so when they meet. I did say it should only be a few points difference between them - if there's less of a disadvantage for superior spears then I a...

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 ...
