Re: Quick Reference Sheet for V.2

Indeed, having finally purchased the vaulted V.2, I too, would like a QRS for it.
When will it be available?

Re: Field of Glory 2.0 - coming October 18th!

There is no point in buying a product when the usability factor is compromised.
I would buy a 2nd edition book, but this PC, iPAD, Mac approach doesn't make sense when the product isn't searchable, or usable.

Commanders - CinC vs others

Is there any constraint that he CinC must be the highest quality commander vs the other commanders?
Could you have a Troop (quality) Commander for CinC while having two Field Commanders?

This makes the army more resilient, such that it can keep fighting with fewer generals.

I like how any troop type can beat another troop type depending on your rolls & their rolls. A lot less rock paper scissors from DBM, so a Cavalry BG surrounded by LF or LH can be brought down by shooting at a distance and once at the fragmented morale, can make a charge/direct impact & melee at an ...

Having played only a few games, really liked the following in FoG vs DBM: The army doesn't suddenly become stupid or static (i.e., bad pip rolls) - ergo generally every unit can make one or two moves each turn - more than enough excitement. The units act like units, not some random stand that when p...

Also, consider the Companions rather than 1 BG of Superior Cats for the same cost. You likely lose a POA vs getting elites who move faster and are more manoueverable. Agreed. They are faster and a bit more maneuverable. Also considering the Galatian Cavalry, as maybe even the Camels - off on the fa...

Easy in hindsight but just what did you expect to need 3 units of cataphracts (1/4 of the army) to fight? Elephants are an alternative, and cheaper (50 cf 64). They also discourage enemy cataphracts from getting close., although they are fragile. a unit of LH works, too - the enemy have to evade be...

Later Seleucids vs Dominate Romans

Setup Jeff & Andy graciously invited me over for a battle. I brought my Later Seleucids (2nd time I played them). Jeff had setup his Dominate Romans for Andy to run, while Jeff reff'd.

Try Cato the Elder as in "Carthage must be destroyed!" Recommend Legions, as there are many barbarian armies to smash into the Romans (Early Imperial through Later Imperial) or for that matter each other. And don't forget the Sassanid Persians, a particularly long-lasting thorn in Roman/Byzantine's ...

Intellectual property is the bread and butter for any company these days. Therefore any item that is printed, published, etc. should not be copied. I see under the resources section of the Field of Glory web-site several summaries/charts that cover the needs of the players. This should be sufficient.

So were the Scythed Chariots worth it or not?

So any LH group just blows them up?

Seems not worth it - very much like a gimmick
