Re: Gaming The Past Designer Talk 4 – Interview with Richard Bodley Scott

I use to love Richard's 'PBM Umpire' game back in the early 90's. In a campaign run by good ol' Bob McFarlane/Shopes my Medieval Burgundians led by Charles the Bold conquered much of Europe! I printed the map, laminated it and mounted in on a polystyrene tile using coloured map pins to represent arm...

One of cothyso's many promises back in the FOG1 days was to implement this. So if was theoretically feasible in FOG1 maybe it is possible in FOG2?

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

I know that I keep banging on about no automatic cohesion loss for flank attacks by infantry units, but maybe something like superior foot units do not suffer automatic cohesion loss when attacked in the flank unless it is by another superior foot unit; or turn it around and say that raw infantry u...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

I think part of the problem is that inexperienced players just choose too many superior troops! I have learned to take the bare minimum superiors, placing them at the point of my wedge and using them as a battering ram. The majority of my points are spent on lots of cheap average (or raw) troops to ...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Half way through another season and it seems to me that the 'quantity armies' still have the edge over 'quality armies'. Perhaps there is something we can do to redress the balance? My idea is to simply introduce a base unit cost, say 5pts, to every unit whether a raw mob or elite praetorian. Horde ...

Re: Last few hours to vote in the poll on the new "Allies" feature

All of them. Just make it so you can't pick the (exact) same army. I think players have a tendency self moderate anyway and will choose a different army to their opponents naturally. I can't see everyone choosing Arabs or Romans etc. No need for cumbersome rules. Less work for you. I don't see how ...

Re: Last few hours to vote in the poll on the new "Allies" feature

I've said it before and I will say it again. I prefer having a few battles in my group where the armies are of similar makeup. Its a better test than facing a horde of skirmishers or a MF army hiding in a patch of woodland every other game. Well, if you would like to submit an army list for the Ear...
