I also intend to make special general stands for FoG in 40 by 40, although as jlopez said the difference is minimal. Is anyone thinking about making them with 25mm figures (for 15mm) to make them stand out and add more character?

Since a bigger general base is marginally more useful, you can bet there will be a lot of 40 by 40 general bases out there!

Leaders are based as one of the unit types depending on the army, i.e. Cataphract (40 x 30) for Parthians, Archers (40 x 20) for Nubians and so on. In a pinch you could fasten the round base of your leader to a rectangular base using blu-tac or a magnet.

Even so, I don't think the 1 point increase for most infantry is too little. What do you think, hammy?

I don't know babyshark. He did talk about undrilled troops being very brittle, and that's a Cohesion thing.

I do, however, agree with you that the 1 pt extra for drilled doesn't seem too little or too much for the slight advantage you get in manoeuver.

You got that one wrong. Drilled troops have no bonus for cohesion tests, only for complex move tests. Thus, they manoeuver slightly better, but are only as brave or fearful as the undrilled troops. The only way to make your troops braver is to buy them in a better quality to use the re-rolls.

In my opinion, what makes DBM take long to play is the time to decide what to do with the Pip dice because you can't plan 100% what you are going to get and also the movement of single elements to very specific milimetre perfect position.

If they have stuck with the piddly little DBM move distances and shooting ranges then it's never going to attract a wider following than the DMX crowd. Lots of small moves leads to cautious calculated game play - not at all the spirit of a highly risky battle (and an edge of the seat game). What? S...

I own and play both the old, old Nubians and their Christian descendants. I hope the former are not treated as a mass of savage tribesmen but actually given a bit of the sophistication they acquired from their northern neighbours. An army I'd love to play would be Timurid, but DBM makes such a mess ...

I agree to an extent that providing proportions instead of fixed numbers of upgrades would be better and allow the lists to scale in a more regular way. Regarding 1385 and Portugal it makes all the sense that the army is "special" in that date! Do your research but don't ask a Spaniard about it. The...

Confused!

Hi, I'm looking forward to these rules as DBM had its run but I feel it can be better and your rules certainly have some very good intentions behind them. However, I'm confused regarding the name of the rules, mainly because there is already a ruleset called Art of War out there! It covers almost th...
