New roads to take

Since integration of doubles is now complete and while there are still a few minor additions and changes in the pipe, we have a few questions for future development. Splitting the (player) Rankings into an 'Eternal' and an 'Active' (main) list (better terms welcome). Is this desirable and if yes how...

It depends... Some Militias had issued equipment (not sure that applies to the early 13th Century though), but most were supposed to bring their own. So going for a wield mix is fully appropriate. Uniformity, if any, would only exist in most or even all bearing their cities device on the shield. For...

The Habsburg forces in the Swabian Wars are covered by Medieval German City Leagues. I've no idea if the Three Leagues* are covered by the main Swiss list though. * The League of God's House, the Grey League and the League of the Ten Jurisdictions from the Grissons, who weren't part of the Old Swis...

All the "LH Armies" I have ever seen are the Graham Briggs "Air and Grit" variet. 7-9 BGs of LH, 2-4 BGs of cavalry and/or knights and possibly a few BGs of LF. Just that Mongols do not get LF. No idea about the Mongol army that won in Italy. The army Martin played very successfully recently had 6 ...

The last tournament on german soil came close with Mongol Conquest at 80.3 points in 4 games. But is it actually a typical LH army? I think most of the work is done by the Cv. Doesn't matter IMO, as it is not the problem. You do not get an average of about 20 points per game by just evading and avo...

Closest airport is Nuernberg, a good hour to Amberg by train. Given enough advance warning me might be able to arrange for a pickup as well.
(Munich and Praha are both reasonable alternatives.)

Results are in the Hall of Honour ( Zweites Amberger Treffen ). We suffered a couple of last minutes drop outs making it a rather 'cozy' tournament (didn't keep me from played crap all weekend not to mention I bunged up my army list bad. At least I've an excuse for the playing crap part... <sigh>). ...

I believe the front and rear relates to each FF 'Base', not any 'fortress' formed by them. It probably is there to make it clear who is actually on the defensible site of a FF (otherwise some "clever" players faced with troops behind FF might move his own troops to contact the FF and then claim he i...

Fundamentally, what we want is to have a game. Failing that we need a mechanism by which players who wish to refuse battle can do so but their opponents get some form of compensation. And this isn't just about LH armies. It's also about armies that do a U-turn and march away to avoid defeat (Condot...

I think we are still missing the point. With actual system, against one army with a lot of skirmisher an army of massed troops has not a true tactic, because if you run back to shooters, as you know, you must sweep all enemy BG from the table. The story of paper-scissor-stone is not a solution, bec...

I agree wholeheartedly. I wonder if the abolishment of the +5 Bonus for an army rout would help at least somewhat in that regard?

IMHO considering Steppe to be the problem is missing the point. I usually do not even take an IC with LH/Cv armies (although it's always tempting, but for reasons other then the PBI). IME LH armies profit FAR more from moving first then from choosing the terrain, as such an IC is counterproductive. ...

Well, a fair few cultures (Greeks, Romans and medieval europeans) considered holding the battlefield at the end of the day as a sign of victory. Probably not convincing enough to compare with routing the enemy army but it's a start. That's easily simulated by have the central sector on the other si...
