Re: Kinked Columns v2

Nik appears to have seen the issue with this langauge and is running the issue by Richard. Richard's answer to me is nice and short: "A kinked column is a legal formation, so cannot reform." Given Matt's point on the wording between 4-2 and 10-1 I will raise the possibility of a FAQ/Clarification f...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

The problem with (a) is that you can reform in your opponents turn - so whilst it prevents intercepting, it would never prevent charging as you would reform before your opponent can get cunning with skirmishers. Aha, good point. The problem could easily be solved by saying that kinked columns can o...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

If a kinked column is on a road in bad terrain and reforms causing the rear of the column to be in the terrain off the road then I assume on the next turn it would not benefit from moving along the road. Chris I suppose not, but how often has that happened to you? The real can of worms here are the...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

Pg 76 mentions BG's not in a normal formation. Pg 23 states there are five exceptions to the general case and goes on to describe them. Critically, Pg23 now defines which of those exceptions can reform - a kinked column is not one of them. If for example you had kinked to follow a road would you ha...

I thought wheels were restricted to 90 degrees under V2? So that looks like an illegal move to me anyway?
Good point, although it looks like wheel could be made legal with a minor adjustment and the 180' turn issue still stands.

Re: Kinked Columns v2

Insist on doing it on my table and you'll have a lot of expensive lead on the floor. A column, even when kinked, is a legal formation, therefore cannot reform. I would not recommend that approach, as you will probably find that you follow the lead to the floor in short order and end up in a similar...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

A kinked column cannot reform because it is specifically listed as an exception to the normal rule on maintaining a rectangular formation. Actually, the opposite is true. A kinked column is allowed to reform because it is an exception to the normal rule on maintaining a rectangular formation. See t...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

They cannot turn until they pass the kink Why? And if so, can they expand before they pass the kink? Why is expanding treated differently from turning? And if it can't expand, doesn't that mean that a unit in kinked column can be taken out of the game by planting a unit of skirmishers in front of t...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

Btw, if the p.23 exceptions don't define non-normal formations, then we are left with no definition for a "normal formation." Not that anyone has claimed there is no such definition - it clearly does as it lists formations that are allowed as exceptions to the rectangular one. I agree with you on t...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

The list of exceptions to the general rule on formations is there to explain that they are allowed rather than being linked to reforming - you will note that cases 2 and 3 mention reforming whilst the others do not and in the case of 5, Orb, you cannot reform out of it. P. 76 contradicts this inter...

Re: Kinked Columns v2

There is no intention that kinked columns can reform. As to date it has hardly been a frequently asked question it has not been FAQed. Oh G*D not this sillyness again. What other possible reason could there be to adding kinked columns to the list of non-normal formations on p.23 of the v. 2 rules t...

Re: Iversonjm is our new FOG knock-out champion!!

This is one of those instances where a half point option would be useful, as the RR LF are useless in a lot of circumstances and against a lot of opponents, but very useful against a few opponents (protected lancers in the open in particular). Certainly the ability to shoot 1 die in missile fire sho...

Re: Iversonjm is our new FOG knock-out champion!!

The Daylami Buyids can get virtually unlimited amounts of superior, armored, MF impact foot swordsmen with the free rear rank LF archers. You can also get them as protected and average if you prefer. This is probably the single best all-round troop type in the game, which is what makes them such a p...
