Cosolidated thoughts

Another great Britcon, thanks to all who organised, played or in any way contributed. I am a lot less sceptical now than before and see the rules doing very well in the future. My reaction to six interesting games: 1. A camp should be worth either 3 or 4 AP`s, if you decide to take one. Presently it...

Mounted Forced to break off

I am totally with Pete on this one, yes I was that peasant archer. The game is forcing all sorts of false conclusions by its own terminology. it seems to, me that the mounted, in the example given, are cutting down the foot in significant numbers, so what does it matter whether they are Disrupted or...

Unfortunately I haven’t had much time to post recently, although the practise games have continued. Time therefore to put some thoughts together.

Romans and Picts

Well you have got to be a little weird to use Unprotected Undrilled Defensive MF Spears! My comments upon the amount of luck that appears in many games is largely due to the way battles can so suddenly swing, which has been noted by the authors and significantly reduced throughout the newer versions...

More Poor Please!

Why is it only the bloody romans that have the widest range of troop types? There should generally be far more poor troops, especially for the undrilled armies, as compulsories within those lists, usually as a proportion of such types. I will not quote any relevant battles to start an acaedmic argue...

Cohesion tests for Routers and Dead generals.

Cohesion tests for Routers and Dead generals. At the moment the critical distance for forcing CoH tests for the above is a somewhat arbitrary 3 Mu`s (as admitted on the Forum). As far as the death or incapacitation of a general goes should this sphere of influence match something like that of his po...

Pre Usk Questions

Pre-Usk Questions 1. Are Generals at risk from shooting, either when they are with a BG or not? 2. Superior skirmishers require other superior troops to their rear to rear to give them the factor for rear support? 3. Disrupted troops require a CMT to charge but not to walk into contact as a corner o...

Validity of Rear support?

The validity of rear support? This is a concept that I have struggled with from the start. I will have to argue the case generally so please consider the broader picture! Certain assumptions have to be made, but principally ancient warfare was Linear, so I would contend that having a secure flank an...

A simple question

A single and simple question. In hand to hand combat what you fight, base per base, determines your POA`s. So in shooting what you shoot at, base per base, determines your POA`s? The example we had was a target unit of protected cavalry, 3 bases in the front rank and 1 in the second. These were bein...

Game seven

Game Seven. Having played historical match-ups to date we decided to have free choice for this game for more of a competition style army (in 15mm). Trouble is we both chose Ottoman Turks! Pete had used them once before against me so we were aware of their ???form???. I managed to get 18 units out of...

I certainly agree and accept that Coh tests are key to the game system. But I still believe that tests resulting from combats can be forced, and failed, as the result of losing a combat result in a very minor way. What about only taking a combat forced Cohesion test if you suffer 2 more hits than th...

Flank Attacks

My Arabs were in single rank, so had two dice at impact and 3 in melee. I still believe that the effect should be far greater given the perfect charge - but accept that when a huge attack goes in the target will get broken very quickly- but why not? They could only drop two levels that phase anyway,...

Fifth Battle Report- Carthaginians in Spain V Gauls. Lots of open space in the central 80% of the battlefield with all significant terrain well out to the flanks. This suited the Gauls as they had Heavy Foot, although they were concerned about the open flanks and Carthaginian LH. 6 Numidian LH shot ...
