Re: Allies

I guess the question is whether the line in the Condotta list about "up to 2 contingents" is intended to be an exception to the normal rule that there can be only one, or an exception to the normal rule that there can be up to 3!

Re: Allies

This was one where I was surprised that I didn't know or couldn't find a clear answer. What I saw could be read consistently with either answer. Surely this must have come up before?

Re: Companion Cup VI - The glistening of spears

It finally ends on turn 21:

NA Iversonjm (Egyptians) 48/78 v. UK Maharg25 (Athenians) 74/74

The Athenians were finally brought to bay, but did some damage before they went down.

Re: Companion Cup VI - The glistening of spears

well we did actually and we chose to drive home rather than sit behind our skirmishers and kiss our butts, if you really wanted we could both be blinking at each other still and waiting for something to happen but that isnt my style I would rather push and loose in style than grind out a mindless d...

Re: Companion Cup VI - The glistening of spears

It has taken 21 days for 12 turns, so if it goes all the way, hopefully it will not take another 21 days. This would possibly mean the game may not have come to a conclusion before we start round 3. TGM and I finished our game in 7 days I think! Actually we finished 1 game in a day, which is pretty...

Re: initial charge question

Once people cast doubt on the normal English meaning of the words used anyway. In this case we say: "Such a charge does not qualify as a flank or rear charge and is treated as a normal charge on the enemy front." And we mean it. What is left to discuss? With all due respect, the normal English mean...

Re: initial charge question

But it does not fight twice . If the initial charge contacts the front base and a rear rank base - but is not a flank charge - my understanding is that it is a frontal charge with 2 bases contacting 2 bases all with full POA as if frontal charge .So 4 dice each But if it is a rear rank of shooters ...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

If the children would kindly stop squabbling ... The way to stop the squabbling is to have Richard declare and put in the FAC when and how a kinked column may turn or expand. Until he does this is going to continually reoccur as it is currently a blank spot in the rules and a significant group of p...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

Looks like much to do about nothing though. Fortunately we don't get this kind of behaviour in FoGR. Exactly...because Ruddock does not play FOGR. It actually is any issue of army type. Kinked columns are rare in FOGR because the geometry of the formations (they tend to be deeper than a base width)...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

It's rather a pity this wasn't thought about prior to the release of v2 This was. By me. I raised this exact issue because the kinked column trapping situation happened in beta testing. There was at least some discussion about it on the forum. When I saw the revised reform rules, I thought: "Great!...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

Perhaps someone could be good enough to PM me and explain how one is wringing some kind of advantage from kinked columns? Pete did you resign from the evil academy? Since it is harder to move and turn onto someone's flank, the new preferred move is to whip in with a 1 element wide column. Consider ...
