Using FOGAM armies with FOGR

Post by vexillia » Sun Oct 04, 2015 5:57 pm

I need a bit of help please. Is there an accepted way of mapping FOGAM troop types to FOGR?

I remember seeing some posts about mixed AM/R tournaments it but can't seem to find them.

What I'm contemplating is using the FOGAM lists with FOGR points & rules so that all the 15th century armies I have hiding in toolboxes can get a run out. I'm not going to invest in FOGAM v2.0 just for the occasional game and haven't played v1.0 for a couple of years.

If there's anything other than troop types I should take in to account please let me know.

Thanks.

Using your thread and some database technology I've identified the few areas where the two don't match exactly or you have suggested a solution for the drilled/undrilled split:

Code: Select all

AM                     RE (matched)      RE (unmatched)
===                    ===               ===    
Cataphracts            -                 -    
Field defences         -                 Field fortifications 
Chariots (Heavy)       -                 - 
Chariots (Light)       -                 -   
Chariots (Scythed)     -                 -                   
Heavy Foot             Heavy Foot        Warriors (Undrilled)            
Inspired Commander     -                 Great Commander     
Knights                -                 Gendarmes   
Medium Foot            Medium Foot       Warriors (Undrilled)  
Did you come up with anything for Cataphracts? Heavily armoured cavalry with light lance perhaps? I'm not too concerned about the absence of a FOGR category for chariots.

Looking at the weapons the unmatched are:

Code: Select all

AM                     RE (matched)      RE (unmatched)
===                    ===               ===
Firearm                -                 Arquebus     
Lancers                -                 Light/Heavy lance                
Longbow                -                 Bow          
Pikemen                -                 Pike                                                   
Spear (Defensive )     -                 Spear      
Spear (Offensive)      -                 Spear                 
Swordsmen (skilled)    -                 Swordsmen   
I don't think the spear is a problem and your 1400 date for knights to use heavy lance looks spot on.

Right off to do a couple of lists.

A few years back we did a WOTR civil war using FOGR.

The relative cheapness of bow made the armies much larger.

We really enjoyed the game.
