There just needs to be a simple "an army which fails to bring BGs which have rolled to arrive counts them as straggling."

Thanks all for your input I like the Ming historically but am somewhat put off by the compulsary average cavalry. Although the crossover to FOG R would be good. Muslim Indian havent looked at yet but will give it a try. I like the Xia Xia and the Koreans too although haven't seen any figures for th...

Re: Threatened Flank?

Mr Ruddock and I played at the weekend. A rules question came up. It is my impact phase. I charge his cavalry and it loses, so has to take a cohesion test. 7MUs to the flank of the cavalry, with none of Dave's troops intervening, are some drilled MF of mine. Is the flank threatened? I claimed it wa...

I have done them by hand but the LBS ones are noticeably better looking. It seems like a waste, but they are just fabulous.

I think there are three heavily morhpable groups:

- Medievals are a solid base for a number of armies.

- Islamics are another base that can support a lot of different stuff

- Hellenistics

The Hellenistics have the disadvantage that the armies are the most similar to each other.

I gave up on actual holes, instead I slice off the outer edge of the hand that "held" the old lead spear/pike/whatever. This is less secure, I regularly have spears pop-off. OTOH when they do so, there is no damage to the figure as a whole. If you drill holes you risk twisting off the wrist of the f...

You can create different tercio seizes by commanding out shot from one or more of them creating different formations (such as a 12 element Late Terio). If you have 2 9 element late tercios and command out 6 musket elemtns from the two of them, you then recombine the remaining elements into a single ...

Capturing Artillery

Had a situation come up last night we couldn't quite figure out. An infantry unit broken the opposing unit and then during the pursuit hit an artillery unit, which is captured. Enemy cavalry unit is in range to charge the newly captured artillery (and would hit the rear of the artillery first). Best...

I read somewhere that there is a free online version. Supposedly it is much more than a dictionary and includes a lot of discussion around the usage and meaning of terms.

If you have thousands upon thousands of people to train quickly the crossbow is the weapon of choice. Its far easier to use. Although I find it difficult to believe that a weapon that could fire 8 effective rounds per minute would be superceded by early firearms, which in the 19th century only mana...

I certainly haven't played enough (either the match-up or FoGR) but I worry about this sort of thing. On the face of it the later armies look very deadly to most others.

I would be curious as to what other people have found in these match-ups.

Even better, as the rules stand it would have to be 4 files, 3 shot 2 single pike and then 3 more shot. Top left page 183; ''battle groups cannot adopt a formation with pike deeper than they would have been in the original battle groups unless all shot have been detached.'' Which, as it then cannot...

Commanding out shot

When looking at later 5+1 pike and shot regiments if I want to command out shot to create a shot only unit is something like this legal: If I have 2 5+1 units can I reform them into a a 6+2 and a 4 shot unit? If so what formation does the 6+2 unit fight in? (S=shot, P=pike) SSSS SPPS Would seem to b...
