Re: Outcome moves question

Hi Terry Thanks for the input. The situation I described will not arise all that often. However, I think we will play it so that a unit which receives the " No Advance" or "No Advance without CMT" from receiving fire cannot get closer to the enemy from its original "footprint". The unit would be all...

Re: Outcome moves question

Hi Brett: Thank you for taking your time to provide that very thorough and excellent walk through. I was fairly confident in my interpretation but it is nice to have it confirmed. I guess the rules could have been a little clearer by simply stating: The winners of a close combat do not make an outco...

Re: Outcome moves question

Thanks for getting back with your comments, Kendall. It is much appreciated. I am pleased that you concur with my reading of the rules. Hopefully, the silence of the others who took a peak at this thread but did not respond signifies agreement as well. As I was glancing over the rules with my mornin...

Outcome moves question

We are in the middle of our second game of FoG-N pitting a 1200 point 1812 French Infantry Corps against a Russian Corps of the same vintage. It is time once again to turn to the collective knowledge and experience of the forum. Anyway, following our outing one of the lads was looking at the rules a...

1812 - Where are the Wurttembergers?

Hello all: Having played FoG-AM and not really enjoyed it, I was reluctant to give FoG-N a look until one of my regular gaming chums bought a copy and I felt obligated to make the expenditure. Had our first game, a perhaps overly ambitious 1000 pts. Spring 1813 game with the French assaulting across...

Re: Obstacles: Retire from Firing???

Good question and one I certainly have an interest in obtaining a definitive answer to as I am preparing to try and dislodge a Russian army ensconced behind a waist deep river. However, on close reading of the Firing section, I didn't see anything which would affect the normal shooting outcomes. Ass...

Re: Passing Through Question - Hoping for a quick answer

Thanks Brett. That's what I thought after looking at the QRS at the back of the book. And, my question was in respect to the movement phase rather than the assault phase. One other question if I may. In order to make a Brigade move must the commander start the movement phase with the unit or can he ...

Passing Through Question - Hoping for a quick answer

Time is quickly approaching for the start of our second session with FoG-N and I'm hoping to get a clarification before the lads arrive because I know it's likely to be a bone of contention. Specifically, CMT for passing through friends, p.41. Passing through Skirmishers and Artillery is a simple mo...

Re: Question about obstacles

Also, depending upon the state/depth of the river, cavalry may not be permitted to assault across it.

That is the situation in our current game. The river separating the two armies is waist deep and prevents cavalry from assaulting across. Makes for some interesting decisions.

Cheers

Re: 1 of 2 shooting queries

Wow...thanks for such a speedy response and clarification. That nicely explains the shooting rules. Looking forward to finishing our first game tomorrow night. So far things are looking pretty good for the French but time will tell. It is not uncommon for me to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory...

Re: 1 of 2 shooting queries

Just following up on this post. Our group had our first game of FOG-N the other night and of course a number of questions arose. One of which is related to the original question of this post. At p.51, the rules state "Infantry can fire at any target straight ahead..." This is further modified at p. ...

Re: Army Listg Question

Thanks very much for your thoughts. You have confirmed what I thought was the case. Also, thanks for your comments regarding the cost of command. From what I've read on this forum and elsewhere, quality command is not usually necessary as there are rarely shortages of CPs. Is that your experience as...

Army Listg Question

Our group of gamers on the Canadian prairies is set to embark upon our first game of FOG-N and I have a couple of questions about the Army Lists. These questions may have been previously asked and answered but I was unable to find anything on the forum. If I missed something either here or in the Ru...

Sorry Draka but that's not quite right. The rest of the board is open area. Open fields do have movement and other effects.

While I concur that the Hippeis would deserve a classification of "Elite", there were only 300 of them. AT best you would have a very small BG of rather limited utility.

Thanks for the confirmation Carlos. However, that really means the Companions are not penalized whatsoever for the presence of Elephants and the consequent disorder.

Elephants, Disorder and Dice Reduction

Just finished a game of Late Seleucids and Ptolemaic, great fun, but the following situation came up and my chum and I weren't certain how to resolve it. Two large Battlelines of cavalry clashed. The unit on my extreme left (Companions) was overlapped by a BG of my opponents cavalry (Galatians) whil...

Pyrrhus has always been one of my favorite commanders of the ancient world and consequently I have spent a fair amount of time researching his campaigns and have fielded a Pyrrhic army on a number of occassions. While there are certainly a few nits to pick with the current list, it is, in my opinion...
