Re: 4th Victorian FOG N Championships

I didn't choose to not block something. What I'm saying is that I had a skilled commander and for example rolled a 5 and two 1s. So apart from potentially wanting someone to "fall into my trap" of allowing my opponent to pick a strategy that suited my plans, I have no choice. I didn't choose to do i...

Re: 4th Victorian FOG N Championships

In terms of blocking strategies, I had a skilled commander and rolled a set of doubles in both games I played so I had no choice other than to decide to not block something. Given that I was new to the ruleset I didn't take that option so the blocked strategies were essentially random. I wonder how ...

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

Some things I've noticed. Things I can't find may well be in there. Some things are notes I made as I read the rules from the start and felt confused but were explained elsewhere. Pg 14: Troops allowed to assault - "You must be able to see the target..." I can't find how you actually determine this....

Waterloo Refight Pics

This past weekend we had a refight of Waterloo and I took some photos. Given that I was in charge of the British right and wasn't concentrating on what my teammates were doing I don't have a good perspective on the entire battle but on my side it see sawed throughout the day. The French seized Hougo...

Re: Extended line and unreformed

The flip side is, is it unbalanced enough that it's worth releasing an errata for that people are going to have to know about/download?

Re: Extended line and unreformed

I think if one puts the various FoG factors together for the British - better quality / substantial skirmisher advantage - and deploys well one does get the desired results. Certainly Dan's report from Cancon shows that... 2) I don't think the British troops need to be cheaper. I find these armies ...

Re: Extended line and unreformed

Changing to and from extended line is a change of formation and will take a full move to change from tactical to extended line or from extended line to tactical. Thats one turns movement. Next turn you can change formation from tactical to square or column or back to extended line. A second turns m...

Re: Extended line and unreformed

If you check the forums for the latest updates you will see that all troops will only end facing backwards if they are forced back more than 6MU. It was changed to to the issue of reformed vs unreformed. I was under the impression that this wasn't in official errata. Thanks for the info. Yeah, ther...

Extended line and unreformed

I've been playing a quite small Anglo-Portuguese list and have been thinking about extended line to help reduce issues with hanging flanks on open tables. In this thinking I realised that the issue of unreformed fleeing more than 4 ending up backwards is partially negated by the fact that extended l...

Re: Cancon FoGN Tournament - Dan's Report

After re-reading that I do apologise Geoff. You are 100% correct, it was an hour all up and I indeed was late. Brevity and not reviewing got the better of me.

Cancon FoGN Tournament - Dan's Report

So Cancon 2015 just finished over the Australia Day long weekend. The format was 800 pts using the standard points based games rules. There were 12 players. Five games were played over the weekend, two each on Saturday and Sunday, one on Monday allowing long distance travellers time to get home. I d...

Re: Direction of retire

So, I found this in the errata which is pretty conclusive. Page 63: RETIRING UNITS: - Clarification. The direction of retire when in contact is in the direction faced by the enemy unit causing the outcome move, or bisecting the angle of facing if more than one enemy is in contact. Doesn't solve it f...

Attacking when defending?

In a normal points match, I usually see defenders castle up on their free hill in some manner and not move too much. Does ignoring the fact that you're the defended advancing out to attack anyway work? Obviously you can't cross the centre, but if you start back a bit, you should (could?) be able to ...

Retiring questions

Couple of questions after recent games.

1. When you make an outcome move in your movement phase, what direction is it in?

2. When making an outcome move and there are enemy units in the way, can you slide to avoid them?

Re: Direction of retire

I suppose it depends on how you're modelling it. Once contact is made do the facings really mean anything? Would the units not be turning to face each other as they would if they remained in contact? The way I interpret it, once contact is made the units are only loosely represented by their footpri...

Re: Direction of retire

Assuming I haven't missed another section of the rules that clarifies this (not unlikely), I don't see why using the line between the centres of the two units isn't correct. It's congruent with what to do if somehow two units remain in contact too.

I'm talking about the charging infantry in the flank bit. Why do wavering infantry just break when charged by infantry, but get to test to form square if charged by cav?

Re: Direction of retire

You'd end up moving along a line extending the charge path.
The chargee(?) won, the charger lost. From what you're saying the retire would be near perpendicular to the charge path.

Also, this is all very hard without diagrams.
