Re: 1700 to 1762

A quick update folks. Terry and I have got together a couple of times now and are working up a set for Beta testing with 7YW as our baseline - or mid-point of the bell curve – a period within the period if you like. Lots of familiar concepts to FoG(N)- eg terrain, and mechanisms CMTs, Cohesions test...

Re: Scenarios??

Ok I have had a first go at a large scenario based on a real battle but designed to be used with opposing compatible lists from across the piece. So even if it is for example an 1814 battle it can be used for one using 1809 lists . It is in effect a " hidden scenario" within the FOG(N) timeframe. Is...

Re: Russian artillery crews

Liliane and Fred Funcken show Line Foot Artillery of 1809 with red shoulder boards( no piping), black cuffs and collar with yellow AND red piping. They show Line Horse artillery of 1814 with red shoulder boards ( no piping) and with black collar and cuffs piped red. They say in the text " black faci...

Re: Flank marches and dismounting

Thanks Graham. How interesting. I had not spotted that for Foot Companions - not an army I have used as it happens so that is why. Was this an attempt to clarify what the Hypaspists were? Old WRG rules 5th/6th had them as LMI as I recall. Well as I say I have been doing it right 8) I think what it ...

Re: Flank marches and dismounting

For the Alexandrian Macedonian list there is a specific rule to allow this, 5th bullet point: “Foot companions and hypaspists listed in a player’s army list as heavy foot pikemen can instead be deployed at the start of the battle as medium foot with javelins – as in the army list below. This is onl...

Re: Flank marches and dismounting

But what about Thurephuroi which are usually all MF or all HF ? And Principate Auxiliary Infantry? The latter one might argue had the ability to operate in either fashion and to order. That said I am not arguing one should have that option in the FOG(AM) system just really trying to be clear what t...

Re: Flank marches and dismounting

Does this mean when you pick troops who can be MF or HF you do not have to decide which they are until you first deploy them? ( It is mostly all one or the other of course. ) So after the initiative has been determined and terrain has been laid -whether they are flank marching or not ? Seems remark...

Re: Cavalry Tactics

I suppose (1) is partly a function of the "I Go You Go "mechanism although in "We Both Go" rules those declaring charges often get benefits that those who do not, or who only counter charge, or or who cannot do either , do not get. Overall its seems to reinforce Wellington's comment that an individu...

Re: Keeping FOG N growing

How do you think equal points armies might work for scenarios in tournaments? One of the attractions of scenarios is asymmetrical forces but with objectives matched to force size. Might the scoring in a tournament operate like a kind of " handicap"? Smaller force more points scored? The scenarios I...

Re: Keeping FOG N growing

Personally I am mostly a tournament player. My particular viewpoint is from having only a rudimentary knowledge of the rules before I played tournaments (2 now). Also I have extensively played tournaments for FOW and it was this that attracted me to FOW. The possibility of a tournament ruleset for ...

Re: Keeping FOG N growing

Wargaming is wrought with examples of games that survive because of a dedicated fanbase after the publisher no longer supports the product. That is very true. If you mean Osprey that seems to be fair comment . But of course it is Slitherine who owns FoG(N) and FOG as a whole and I do not think one ...

Might I suggest that any who want to explore scenarios do so on the " Scenarios?" thread? I totally get that they are one way of supporting and sustaining FOG(N) so lets collate peoples ideas etc in one place.

Re: Keeping FOG N growing

From what I've seen on the TMP forum when people ask for a recommendation for Nap rules the current rules format seems to be the one of the top two criticisms of FOGN. The other is that a unit is not an infantry battalion – cavalry regiment level game. We can't do much about the latter but we can d...

Re: Keeping FOG N growing

Having chatted to JDMc at SALUTE the position is that the ball is in Terry and my court re FoG(N) . And while the Osprey route is available ( talk of a split on this forum seems to have been exaggerated :shock: ) that is probably not the best value approach for users. So now we have to decide on wha...

Re: Dismounting and a die less?

I had always assumed the two dice per front base for mounted knights was a reflection of the difficulties charging mounted knights had when formed up deep as at Crecy and Agincourt so encouraging you to deploy them in a single rank. When dismounted you get one dice but of course for both ranks so th...

Yup my goof, probably got lost in a cut and paste move in Excell .

Suggest use the line in the French army in Spain 1810-12 for French light infantry but within the overall max of 32 bases for 1808-1809.
