However its not realistic, maybe the initiative is too...

"Regarding the accuracy of the list. I have checked a couple of books that I have at home regarding ancient battles and Pyrrhus is credited having 3.000 cavalrymen over a 35.000 (whole army at Heraclea) army and 3.000 cavalrymen over 20.000 thousand Greek troops he brought with him. This means more ...

"But even so, if you don't like the army and the way it plays in the game, there is a fairly obvious solution. Especially when there are any number of other Hellenistic-flavour armies to choose from.

Ahh yeah try reading the earlier posts I am well aware who pyrrhus is . The historical minimums for cavalry are not Historical they are to high for an army that had limited numbers of available troops .Also Pyrrhus fought his first battle against the romans with only his forces and that of the Taren...

yeah, when The lists only allow average pike and the combat system is rather luck reliant I need every advantage I can get. But as far as being movement rescrictive behined my lines the same would go for spear aswell 6 to 8 bases can be quite an obstacle even if 8 inches behind . Does anybody really...

WOW well I dont think I was doing that right . Well thats nearly usless for people with pike armies .Long trailing colomns of support that seems goofy to me but not my rules . I didn;t use rear support that much before (to expensive ) and now this is going to be totaly useless to me . 8 stands in a ...

why do they have to be in a single base wide column ? do you have to have all bases of a supporting BG partly behined the supported BG ,That just seems a little too restrictive . ( in this senario pike would never get support Yuoo would run out of table space ) I thought a 4 stand BG could set up be...

So while more likly to take base loses the 8 bg is more resistant to moral rolls ? I can modify the Cohesion roll ,with rear support or a commander .The death roll I cant . So with rear support and quality rerolls It seems that the smaller BG's are better . I find myself using a large BG as fly pape...

Well I dont think the cavalry minimums are backed up by history and the other better documented hellenistic lists have a lower minimum . As reguards to designing the list to have pyrrhic victorys ,Firstly who would play that list and second alexanders list would look alot better than it does now . I...
