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.
aaah - its a subtle implied bit. "Battle lines are limited to moves from the advances section" - as in, a battle line makes a move, not the individual units within it. I get it now...

Hardly implied IMO, quite clear - plus the definition of Battle Lines (P30 IIRC) helps.

I was thinking of this and smiling to myself whilst watching Mr. Porter explaining some subtle feature of the rules to his opponent this morning :D

Aaah - I thought I'd tidied all those up.

It was actually E. Hungarians, but I'd put Byzantines in the first draft of the script

In search of Early Hungarians...

Tim,

I also don't see an 800 AP Early Hungarian list that appears to match these mythical Early Hungarian nee Byzantine opponents.

I'm pretty sure they were Chris Johnston's Early Hungarians - however I think he gave me the printout of his army list rather than me writing it down.... and I lost it! If you look on the Roll of Honour it shows it was the army that placed 4th at Hubcon (thanks to the 16.4 : 8.6 victory I handed them in the last game!)

I've changed the reference on the last page too now.

I hoe you are all satisfied now :cry:

As its snowing/freezing and so I can't spray varnish or undercoat a load of 28mm TYW figures, or undercoat 15mm TYW Pike & Shotte, a Louis XVI French Army, some WW2 GI's and large number of 15mm Sarmatian lancers, thats probably what the Christmas break is for....
