Re: 30 Years War team event

saxonGermany has been made safe from the brutal Swedish invader and their traitorous allies near the lovely Saxon town of Lutzen. The Swedes were slow to advance through the early morning fog which allowed us to set up an especially effective reception line of artillery and heavy foot to the left of...

Re: 30 Years War team event

Swedes are very very few in number in our battle....we have commenced mopping-up operations. Germany will be free of the Protestant scourge in the very near future.

Re: 30 Years War team event - Round 3 begins

That sounds extremely cunning of me. Wallenstein was not a cunning General, just extremely well organised, our mercenaries would never stoop to flank attacks. Or would they?

Re: TYW Polish Army - overly powerful?

Getting back to the original question posted, namely is the Polish army a powerful one. I have fought probably 20 games using the Poles against lots of different opponents and probably about 15 against the Poles. The Poles are one of my favourite armies both in Pike and Shot and Tabletop ancients (t...

Re: 30 Years War team event

the tercios are really good if you can get into hand to hand combat...an early tercio will handle 3 pike and shot....but getting into combat without disrupting is very difficult, especially against an experienced player with a gentle hill near his base line for him to emplace his batteries

Re: In All The Years Of Playing...

I've never had a unit move twice its normal speed except during pursuit where it has broken several enemy units in a row.

I would put it down to the luck of war, sometimes shite happens, and at other times miracles happen. It may be the same action from the view of the opposing generals

Re: 30 Years War team event

Brian played this very well, co-ordinating his various troops so extra firepower on the flanks of my tercios broke them before contact. He also used his larger number of mounted to overcome my definite advantage in quality.

Re: SnuggleBunny's Pike and Shot, Field of Glory II, and Sengoku Jidai Channel

I rarely buy artillery but if its compulsory I find it really useful in conjunction with musketry. But I don't bother to protect them, they are small units which have little effect on the percentage of my army lost and any unit that is riding for miles to take out my guns is one less unit attacking ...

Re: Question about Commanded shot

Athos, you should try a few multiplayer games, they are fun. But because its a human on the other side the enemy is less predictable. When you only play the computer you soon learn how it thinks and can adjust your disposition and tactics accordingly. I use dragoons in preference to commanded shot, ...

Re: Need some advice for an 1494 Spanish campaign

hold your gendarmes and light cavalry back. The secret against the light horse is to stop them breaking off once they are in contact. If his light cavalry charge your foot and don't immediately break off then put a unit in his rear then you can kill him with flank charges. when his light cavalry are...

Re: 2019 Tournament

I've decided to call a halt to this tournament as the last few games aren't getting played out. So the results of the battles finished so far are recorded, the unfinished battles score 0 for both sides. So the Final table is; ……………………....Pantherboy…..Snugglebunnies……….awesum4...…...Gribol Pantherboy...

Gribol won both our games although they were very close until the very end. His Ottomans beat my Imperialists 59% to 64% and his Imperialists beat my Ottomans 48% to 64%. So just waiting for the results of the games between Pantherboy and Gribol and the games between Snugglebunnies and Gribol. Then ...
