Re: Protected Spearmen

Also, I think that the "Viking" list is very generic. I dont see that you can really eqate a confederation of Viking raiders on the one hand, with the Royal Danish army of King Cnut! Not sure how you get around this with the present list, except to modify the list for a specific campaign. Likewise, ...

Re: cover

Are we talking FF or a terrain feature?
In FoGR you are probably looking at a linear obstacle, but I don't think (no rule book with me) that exists in FoG:AM, in FoGR it is treated like an FF.
If you are doing a refight/scenario, then you could work out your own modifiers as appropriate.

Re: Fighting Partially in rough

Number of ranks has no effect on denying the sword POA, just that the spear (or Pike) in one rank wouldn't get their usual POA either, so would still be at a disadvantage if the enemy sword have better armour. (Assuming steady). So mixed formations like the Byzantine infantry still have some sort of...

Re: v2 Restricted Area

Technically, you could do that in V1, too. You just had to end the move further away from the enemy and with at least part of the BG partly in front of the enemy BG. Is there still the restriction to remain partly in front of the enemy BG at the end of the move? Or, can you just make a straight ahe...

Re: Charging into a flank that's not a flank.

No rule book with me but from memory: 1. The third rank is a legal target as they are not contributing dice. 2. The LH have to test as the unit is not entirely LH or LF. 3. The tricky bit, I think there is some reference to must be able to legally conform in the manouver phase. I may be dreaming tha...

Re: 15mm cavalry musicians

What army?

Most mounted musicians come as part of a "command pack" in many ranges.
I know Essex do packs of just mounted kettle drummers for their Arab range (both horse and camel).

1 and 3 I'd say yes.

Not certain about 2, don't have the book in front of me, but I think that each allied contingent would have to meet the minimas for an ally.
Would have to read the exact wording again however.

I would endorse what everyone else has said.

In addition, as has been touched on, there is also what I thin...

My thoughts for what its worth: The restrictions on undrilled troops within 6" of enemy seem a little harsh, to to point of being illogical. At the very least undrilled troops should always have the option to wheel towards the neerest enemy without a CMT. Other options could be: Turn 90 or 180 to fa...

From my understanding the end of the use of elephants in western armies can be attributed to the following. Firstly, as any enemy becomes used to your tactics and technology you are forced to adapt, or even abandon certain weapons. That is always true, and probably had some effect. The fact though t...

I guess it becomes like a kind of defacto intercept charge in this case. IIRC an intercept into the path of light troops does not permit the lights to cancel their charge or pull up short, even if not a troop type they could not normally charge. I would treat this situation in the same way. As they ...

Also, as I understand, a step forward only occurs if it allows more stands to contact the original target or a new enemy. In this example I cannot see any justification for the chargers to step forwards at any point. The only additional contact they could make would be "if" the heavy foot made the i...

I can see the argument either way. But as far as precedent goes, I recall a recent thread that pointed out that you can't intercept a charge if the target evades and as a result the chargers now enter the intercept zone. I see this as being a similar situation, especially as to the point in the sequ...

From what I recall, the early guns were mainly iron; bulky and often with various forms of reinforcement to the barrel. Bronze cannon were used in increasing numbers mainly for weight saving reasons.

Looting Camps

This may have been answered before, but the rule book and opinions are unclear re some of the details re looting camps. a. Units contacting an enemy camp (to sack). Should this be with a front edge/corner of the unit, or is it legal to contact with a side edge/rear corner (e.g. by wheeling) and coun...

Turn 90 or 180 and advance

Hi all. This may have been covered before, but I couldn't find anything in a search of previous posts. I'm still new to the game so this may be basic but: "Turn 90 deg with a simple advance before or after". Does the whole of the advance have to occur prior to, or subsequent to the turn? Or can you ...
