Re: Winners Atrittion

After playing FoG:AM for years casually and tournament play. Here are some of my opinions on why FoG:AM (a game I love) is losing players - Army Viability - most players own only a handful of ancients armies. I personally only own a few ancient armies (Incan, Teutonics, Avar, Vikings, Serbians, Mong...

Re: What is this orb thingy again?

10 BGs of Pike, each deployed in orb formation in the corner of a table is now immune to skirmisher shooting and does not have to charge..... (Insert disclaimer for any future comment regarding the strategic implications of this, rather the tactical advantage of negating proven tactics for drawing p...

Re: Fog v2 Charge Example

I interpret it as there is a difference between evading along the path of the charge and choosing to evade directly back. In my opinion the LH chose to evade directly back so the warpigs can choose to:- 1. Charge straight ahead 2. Charge straight ahead with 1" wheel in any direction (because all tar...

Re: What is this orb thingy again?

So an 8 stand pike block in orb when shot only tests after receiving 3 or more hits? (Or 2 artillery shots)

Fog v2 Charge Example

There is a lovely full page 3 diagram example of an Elephant battlegroup charging a Light Horse battlegroup that I can honestly admit is confusing as hell. (Sorry no page number, look in the yellow section :twisted: ) Firstly the LH bg chooses to evade directly to its rear instead of evading away fr...

Re: Charge Target

Great, so not only mounted vs Elephants/Camels and foot into disordering terrain, and now LH wanting to get a flank charge. :roll:

Re: Charge Target

Drivel, utter drivel. My post is applicable to both versions of FoG. Thanks bbotus for that waste of perfectly good ascii characters. Now back to my legitimate question - here is another example other than elephants and camels disrupting mounted confusing things... What about heavy foot wanting to c...

What is this orb thingy again?

8 stand pike block in a 2x4 gets shot ...counts as 6 bases.
8 stand pike block in a 4x2 gets shot ...counts as 8 bases.
8 stand pike block in orb (now has a lot of front rank bases)......counts as.....how many bases in the front ranks????

Re: Can Non-shock MF with light spear charge without CMT ?

Interesting. So a mixed BG of Huscarls (4HF OffSpear + 2LF Bw) that has expanded out to 3 ranks wide can't charge battletroops in the open and does not have to test to charge battletroops? 8)

Re: Threatened flank

I would take the apporach that the wording "capable of" indicates exactly that. The LH does not stop the capability of the charge whoever the initial target is. But the more I write this I realise that a battle group who is adjacent to the threathened BG could realistically be charged in the flank t...

Charge Target

My BG has two targets, one steady straight ahead and one fragged slightly to the left. In FoG 1 I could charge the fragged BG with a wheel because the number of bases contacted was the same.
Now that fragged BGs do not "contribute" as many combat dice......

Re: Medieval

I cannot for the life of me see how a guy in half plate armour with a shield the size of a door slung over his back is considered to have the same level of protection as a Gaul in just his pants. He isn't. Protection levels (and even POAs) are relative within period, to ensure that in-period intera...

Re: Medieval

Although I like Phils suggestion for reverse quality re-rolls, I dunno if it subscribes to the "Any dodgey french cook can kill a King with a crossbow". Hopefully in the army list rewrites we see combat armed crossbowmen, or at least armoured Genoese Pavise? I cannot for the life of me see how a guy...
