Re: LCv Ext Line Inf Cover

I haven't used it since trying it...how would you write a restriction like that into the rules tho??? Napoleonic cavalry did not table sit within charge range. I won't say ever. Because at Waterloo the spent cuirassier units were asked to stand near the english squares that were almost out of ammun...

Re: LCv Ext Line Inf Cover

There is no requirement to shoot correct? So the defender could just limit his fire on the cavalry.

But yes very ahistorical.

Re: First V3 Game

The Han was always a good army and will continue to be so - but it's not unbeatable. Of the 4 Han armies fielded in Winchester they placed 2nd, 8th, 17th & 18th out of 24. Without commenting about the true effectiveness of Han, where they finished is only partially helpful if we know where that pla...

Re: BHGS Scoring System for FoG V3

This uses the ITC / Belgarum system and adds a bonus 5 points for sacking your opponent’s camp provided you’ve not lost your own. Or a bonus 5 points for breaking your opponent’s army provided your army is unbroken. Does this mean even if I lose I can get 5 points for the enemy camp? Or if I am bro...

Re: BHGS Scoring System for FoG V3

It may be useful to look back at 1-2 recent comps and see how the distribution changes. I realize that is imperfect as camp sacking likely was not recorded.

What is the reason to incentivize the sacking of the camp in draws?

Re: Gallic Cavalry

Aside from the gratuitous but correct Ruddock 2nd place jab.

I would suggest that a well written after action report of the battle and details would promote interest and showcase version 3.

However, we did completely smash the eventual winners of the tournament 11-9. Then we didn't do too badly.

Re: Playing FOG Napoleon using Travel Battle figures and Ter

It would absolutely work. The only reason for base removal is to make spent units which rally only needs some other note.

Since a unit is functionally 3" wide normally. You are playing 1/3 scale. So your table space is actually less if you drop to 1".

Re: First V3 Game

Gentle hills are no good to a manoeuvre force, but great for a sit in terrain defender. The enemy has an equal chance of it being on his side, then its as bad, or worse, than rough going for the attacker This problem with gentle hills has existed in too many rule sets and is not a FOG version anyth...

Re: Early Mykenaean Chariots

There is a whole more to thinking on chariots in general that I think a rule set could justify a lot of options. I think there is a case for some of the HCH to be bow rather than shock or both which I know is a no-no in design philosophy. Chariots were depending on author and time period: transport ...

Re: Cavalry Corps???

Also if a turn is what 30 minutes we are talking a succession of charges and squadrons or regiments could roll in like waves in succession. There are so many pieces that are "factored in" but we are used to looking at it like its actually exactly like the figures sort of portray.

Re: Cavalry Corps???

Rather than make it possible to break squares to encourage charges, ALL cavalry should test within charge reach of enemy infantry in the open to see if they charge, and if they fail, they do. I certainly agree with the current Version 2 changes to reduce the chances of a square breaking, but I woul...
