Re: 4th Victorian FOG N Championships

"It is my perception that guards could use just a slight tweak down. If I had to define the problem with Guards, it would be that steady Guard Cavalry nearly always win their combats against other cavalry. It's reasonable to expect this, Guards are supposed to be good after all. However from a game ...

Re: 4th Victorian FOG N Championships

At the moment your outcome table for a disordered active unit states:"Outcome move for active player units and Disordered that are not Passing Through. Steady opponents follow Pursuit rules" p41. That's not what you are saying at all. The difficulty is that the old rules used to operate on the princ...

Re: 4th Victorian FOG N Championships

I think that fixing your combat result table, the outcomes table and its interaction with the pass through rule is of much more importance than faffing about with a perceived guards problem. The new table is confusing as and has been for some time now. Cavalry can pass through squares they have not ...

Re: NICon 2017

Thanks Brett - it was a very good tournament. Just some practical points: Maybe make the rules a bit clearer regarding impetuous and pursuit, to take into account the fact that the geometry of the game will often mean that an impetuous unit will not be free to pursue the unit it has been in comabt w...

Re: NICON 2017 battle report

Gloria Sic Transit Mundi - you forget all the times those involuntary impetuous charges ruined not just the Scots Greys but the entire army... I used prepared attack three times - I won with it twice and had a 13-12 draw in my favour in the other game. It is a very effective option for an average si...

Re: NICon 4-5 June 2016, Hamilton NZ

Yes, thanks for organising and running the tournament Phillip. All of the games ended up being very interesting and you don't hear that from someone who has gone to every major FOG N tournament since 2012. This tournament was a lucky win for me - completely different to all the hard work and effort ...

Re: Jaegers, Voltiguers, Tirraileurs, Fusiliers and Light In

Actually the Poms did have 12 pounder guns, they just were often not with the army in the field, particularly in the Peninsula.

And the British heavy cavalry was the envy of Europe in terms of the size of its men and horses.

Re: FOGN 2nd Edition

Yep, MDH.

In Rugby the saying is: The ball always beats the man.

In War gaming the saying should be: The dice always beats the man.

Re: FOGN 2nd Edition

I've read as many as THREE whole books about the entire period and think it is fair to say that anyone with a funny sounding name is probably 100% wrong with anything they say... These rules have (and in some cases HAD) some very good features - the lack of extensive 'national character' rules is so...

Re: FOGN 2nd Edition

I don't think that there is a problem with the light infantry rules - IF your intention is to model brigade sized units that had the capability of deploying one half to two thirds of their strength in skirmisher screens. These seem to be either: (a) 'Special' troops - 95th Rifles, 5th Legere and sim...

Re: shooting at artillery from buildings

Wasn't this exactly what happened at Hougoumont? Not to mention any n...

Re: FOGN 2nd Edition

I think the 1 inch pivot is cumbersome - I suggest simply expanding the arc of fire for guns to extend a base width either side of the artillery unit AND that you can target a specific unit (at long range) stop all this splitting fire business because: (a) it's just as cumbersome and contributes tow...

Re: FOGN 2nd Edition

having extended line vulnerable to medium range skirmishing and canister fire, which it was, if enough firepower could be concentrated against it. I think this is an important point. British extended lines were screened by terrain and large clouds of skirmishers, in some cases so many that the Fren...

Re: Anglo-Portuguese 1809-10 another issue

Not only that but as British allies the 1809-10 Spanish may also use a large Foot Guard unit, yet the corresponding Spanish Army list only allows the Spanish guard a small unit, which is also odd.
