Re: square and flank assault

This means that when an infantry unit is flank charged by enemy infantry can choose to form square in order to avoid the cohesion drop and the double poa? Ok the square will lose anyway but surely it has better chances especially if the unit forming it is of good quality. Concerning the supports IIR...

Re: shooting at rear bases

What about squares then. Suppose a square is contacted in one corner by enemy. Which bases, if any, would be eligible targets for firing purposes?

Re: shooting at rear bases

So, if I understand correctly, units in melee can be valid targets for both players

Re: Some Rule questions

Can both the attacker and defender flank march?

If yes, what happens if both choose the same flank and one of them arrives?

Re: Field of Glory goes 2.0 !

I like many of the changes. However i think that the authors went on the other side in "nurfing" superior troops and Romans in particular. I would also like to see attrition points lost when a CinC is killed. As for the rules format i would really like to have them in hard copies even after some tim...

Re: Some Rule questions

In pg 35 General Movement Rules it is stated that the active player may move any units that....were not forced to make an outcome move during this turns assault and firing phase.
Does this mean than a unit forced to retire by the non active players firing in the firing phase cannot move this turn?

Re: What faction(s) to collect?

Yes it is obvious that the French guard will be outnumbered. Has the guard quality vs quantity be tested on table?

Why do you write that with the French imperial guard you can't go for a placing?

Re: What faction(s) to collect?

Look at uniform websites until you see something that makes you go "Ooooh, pretty!" and build your army around that. A good place to start (apart from the Osprey "bibles" of course): http://centjours.mont-saint-jean.com/unitesPR.php Contains detailed coloured uniforms for every single regiment that...

Re: And more questions

A way around your countercharging problem is to have rear support units not more than 2MU from the leading unit. Rear support reduces your opponent's dice which is going to make it harder to break your unit. How can cavalry be supported by infantry and hence reduce the dice of the enemy contacted? ...

Re: Triumph of Nations Errata

2 cav divisions are not compulsory. The composition of the cav divisions are an issue as it states that if a cav division contains both heavy and light cqv, it must have at least 8 bases of each, hence 2 light cav units and 2 heavy cav units
