Nice report - not what I expected from your list but I suppose I should have expected you to take a LH Shooty Cav army and try mixing it at close quarters...

Fried green tomatoes.

Fried squash.

Fried pickles.

Fried corn.

Fried potatoes.

For the calorie conscious, we also have baked potatoes, usually loaded.

Quite so. If you aren't going to get something completely right, the only proper alternative is to get it completely wrong. Well done Tim.

My design criteria was "use at least 2 sets of new lancers".

Seemed to work out OK :-)

My logic was "why would you not want to stick a general with this unit in combat" + "4 poor LF bowmen - nice!"

The "some angles" being those that comply with the rules - I suppose we should be charitable and assume you were confused by having LH in your army :twisted:

And to answer your next question it is because a Battle Line is limited to moves under the Advances section of the movement table (its in the rules on the page before said table) - and I can't think how you can get to where you did doing that :D

Nik

Are you suggesting that formation change AND 90 degree turn don't quite qualify as Advances... :)

The three 2x2 blocks all wheel through 90 degrees, but still end up in contact with each other ?

Maybe I snuck in a cheeky contraction somewhere along the line too...

As each BG will have had to wheel separately to get where you got them they cannot have moved as a battle line - see page 30 and p75. The ending in contact is not relevant, it appears to be something you have invented as a criteria (in that they must be in contact throughout).

And any contraction takes you out of the Advances section which means it cannot be done by a Battle Line - see page 41.
