Re: FOG N 2nd Edition - it's back!

V2 is currently with typesetters, formatting the rules for printing. Hopefully they are not too far away from completing this job. Once this has been done, all that remains will be to check the formatting, make any required tweaks and print. Timeframes largely in the hands of 3rd parties, but hopefu...

So technically a wavering unit in this situation does not shoot.

Re: How often count disordered

You guys were correct.
The rule is that you shoot 1 level lower if you cannot see target with both corners.
So a partially blocked disordered unit would shoot as wavering.

Re: LCv Ext Line Inf Cover

Well, skirmish formation is effectively gone in v2, so the tactic is far trickier. There is the danger that the enemy will multi-unit assault the extended line. Skirmishers used to simply evade and uncover the fresh tooled up units behind. But in v2 the extended line would have to take the assault a...

Re: LCv Ext Line Inf Cover

I used to occaisionally do something similar with LI in skirmish formation in v1. Because extended line is only 30mm deep (15mm scale) and 2mu is about 50mm, you can ram the extended line up to 5mm from the enemy and push your own infantry hard up to their rear. Next turn is your opponent's. He shoo...

Re: attachments

Hi Dead It's become irrelevant because units cannot rally from rout in v2. If broken, you now simply do your break move, take tests for friends who see the unit routing or are burst through, the opponent pursues (if relevant) and then you sadly take the broken unit off the table and put it back in y...

Re: shooting in difficult

Re: Cavalry Corps???

Something we need to remember because we all are used to saying its a square. No if it got beat maybe it wasn't. (or as you say parts weren't) Excellent point worth remembering. I did think of one idea perhaps worthy of consideration, to simply place a maximum on the total number of dice that can e...

Re: Cavalry Corps???

Rather than make it possible to break squares to encourage charges, ALL cavalry should test within charge reach of enemy infantry in the open to see if they charge, and if they fail, they do. This is the old v1 impetuous cavalry rule, applied to squares only. Much maligned (including by yourself Al...

Re: veterans and free cmt

I may have posted this elsewhere, but I think that making your cavalry veteran is more attractive than it was in v1, not only with the free 2nd moves beyond 6MU, but there are a couple of crucial things mounted have to test for that were largely 'free' in v1: - wanting to pull back a half move when ...

Re: Cavalry Corps???

I remember contemplating an Ottoman Cavalry attack corps and then thankfully I saw v2 start developing. Just a heads up that the Ottoman mounted will likely be getting some major chances in v2 lists. They will be less the rapier-like force we tend to see at the moment, and be more a horde of potent...

Re: Cavalry Corps???

Getting a balance for mounted v squares is tough. One good thing about FoGN IMO is that tabletop cavalry commanders have a go against squares - which is highly realistic (they charged squares all the time historically). We didn't want to lose this game dynamic by making squares immune to mounted. I ...

Re: Cavalry Corps???

There have been a couple of players in Melbourne that have run Cav corps, with considerable success I understand. A sensible opponent will not engage in a cavalry fight to deny you easy points, but instead tuck their mounted behind squares. So the key is to have a set of tactics to break a square or...

Yes, I agree with Richard. Cossacks can either evade an infantry assault, or (with successful CT), counter-charge them.
