One of these daggers (pugio) can be seen on Hypernator's grave at the Römerhalle Museum in Bad Kreuznach :

Some other specimens have also been found, such as these ones.

Really sorry for just vanishing. I was enjoying pike keils and Sun-king's impact foot galore in the meantime.
This is the best excuse ever ! :-)

Re: V1.5.25 ZOC changes

This whole thing seem to have nothing to do ZOC, and everything to do with light foot not being able to pass through friendly units. In the OP's first 2 screenshots, the spots the slingers are allowed to move are consistent with ZOC rules - in a 90 degree arc away from the ZOC unit. The anomaly is ...

Re: V1.5.25 ZOC changes

(...) I don't expect anyone to agree with me, but you did ask for my reasons! Thanks for your informative answer. Indeed, I did ask for your reasons as I have no strong views on current and past ZoCs. So your opinion is very interesting :-) ZOCs are not a "real" phenomena, they do not exist in the ...

Re: V1.5.25 ZOC changes

Hi, I tried to dissect the situation : 1) ZoC(s) : I guess you all agree about the following ZoC. Only the nearest Enemy Cavalry exert a ZoC on our LF. And PA of the LF = 12. https://i.imgur.com/O70VQAR.png 2) Let's add the nearest friendly units : https://i.imgur.com/kp1Tryn.png There are 4 squares...

A wonderful Roman dagger is restored

A 2,000-year-old Roman dagger, that was discovered in a trench at a burial ground in Haltern am See (north-west Germany) last year, has been restored very nicely. It is thought to have belonged to a soldier from the Roman legion fighting Germanic tribes in the 1st century. Reading : Yahoo news UK Th...

Re: Stinking henbane modifier required?

Interesting (and sad) hypothesis. Indeed, the henbane seems to have been known and used for different purposes by several civilisations throughout Antiquity. Here's the paper written by K. Fatur, the ethnobotanist mentioned by the article of the Daily Mail. (K. Fatur, Sagas of the Solanaceae: Specul...

Re: Relegation of Sengoku and Pike & Shot?

What's more, maybe it's just me, but I cannot see the Pike and Shot forums in the Classic Games section, also the main forum for Battle Academy 2 in not there either (although the sub forums are). Click on 'Classic Games' on the front page and you'll go to this page : http://www.slitherine.com/foru...

Re: Relegation of Sengoku and Pike & Shot?

It looks as if these two games have been taken off the front page of the Forum and relegated to the 'Classic Games' forum. Thank you for the info. Now I know where to find them! I initially thought they had been hidden. These forums weren't very lively. It won't help. Kind of Elephants' graveyard :-)

Re: 2 player campaign format . . .

I play SP for now. However I really like this project, the idea of putting FoG battles into concrete/explicit historical contexts and giving them stakes (conquering a territory, funding a kingdom, etc.). Also starting with particular deployments (such as ambushes or friendly units on both sides of t...
