Re: 2013 US Open, May 3-5

I took the Early Aechemenid Persians to the US Open in Santa Clara. It was a great event and if you didn't attend you missed out. Why take the Persians? Actually it is very simple - Immortals. The 16 bases of Immortals are IMO some of the best troops in FoG now. In virtually every way they got bett...

Re: FC or TC?

For my Classical Indians I dropped the IC + 3 TCs and went for Allied FC, FC CnC, FC sub and 1 TC sub.
The army , being un drilled, works much better.

Re: Early Or Maurikian Byzantine?

I have just played this army in an open tournament in NZ. It was an open theme 900 point competition. I finished 3rd out of 6. Also I like the legion in a big unit it takes either two powerful units to grind it down. or it can be a useful decoy. It can't be ignored. I was most pleased to see you us...

Thanks for the reply. Will give it a try although I doubt that I have enough Bowmen.

OK folk here it is, another instalment of the Ruddock & Gaukroger shoot their mouths off show. Hopefully we've got everyone's names right this time :/ Well, are we to get a bunch of lists that are tailored for v2.0 or are these the same tired old v1 lists that have been meddled with? Well let's fin...

Artillery in V2

I'm looking at using 1 or 2 BGs of artillery with either WotR or Ottomans. The tactic recommended was to place twice as many fortifications as required in an arrow head formation 15MU in and place the guns last. I would then deploy some archers behind the vacant defences. Can the guns change facing ...

And then (and this bit I do agree with) that led on to an additional complaint that not only are they getting an extra capability, but they are getting it for free. I guess at the end of the day it doesn't matter, it's a valid discussion to be having after all. I was just commenting on the process ...

Yes that's right, the new V2.

The quote was for 80 pages of text supplied in digital format ie PDF. The army list book was just a sample for the printer to base the quote on.

Re: Field of Glory goes 2.0 !

Two things about the WRG rules, they were concise and cheap to produce. Black & white with some diagrams. After seeing JDM's post re a paper version of V2 and as I work in the Printing & Packaging Industry I picked up an old WRG army list book ( Book 4, June 1994) and dropped it off to one of our c...

That being said, it would be nice if Slitherine would throw "the Old Guard" a bone and have a way for them to get a printed copy easily, even if it is just a printable pdf.
A good start re an 'Old Guard Bone' would be a set of printable QR sheets.

Go bob, you have balls that tick. There are Medium Foot that get to throw javelins so why not Heavy Foot ? as long as both pay for the privilege.

Re: Field of Glory Ancients version 2

Another good example is Light Foot Vs Longbows. A BG of 8 Light Foot LtSp/Jav approach into Javelin range against 6 Longbow. The Javelins get 4 dice @ 0 points, the longbow 4 dice @ 12 points.Both require a 4 to hit. Over the course of a game the Light Foot player could get upwards of 50 FREE dice r...

Cost of Combat Capabilities Are there going to be changes to Points Values in V2 ?

Re: Shifting and feeding more bases into to an existing mele

If the Red Player had charged 'C' into 'A' in his next move would 'A' have to shift sideways to line up?
