Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

@Retributarr: let me rephrase it and remove the word 'boring'. Strategy is not boring per se. But I think FoGII and its predecessor, the tabletop version, are about tactics and short term [Ret: Then!... it is what it is] . What you wish to add seems to be strategy and mid-term and might be beyond t...

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

@Retributarr : Sieges and military architecture are indeed very interesting subjects of History ! But imho, when it comes to gaming (and FoG2 is about military tactics and brief battles, not about strategy or forged letters), some siege phases are boring, such as bombing all day long to maybe break ...

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

Thank you very much, Richard, for the clarification.

Even without broken walls, scenarios with castels will be great fun!
They are designed to be made out of sections, even on a single square.
Nice.

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

I have no doubt that someone in the community will produce some sort of siege scenarios. The castle models are in place. P&S has city broken walls logically offering no Defending Fortification bonus to the defenders. Will/could castel models have a version with broken wall(s), so that we could make...

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

I think it's possible to strike balance in regional naming. Logically it should only apply when a unit is typical only in a certain country or region or when a certain unit type is particularly famous in that part of the world. So mounted crossbowmen should always ber called mounted crossbowmen. Sa...

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

BTW, little suggestions if I may. I know that making separate models for every faction is out of the question but have you guys thought about at least giving them regional names when possible? Look at earlier Total War games where many identical units had different names which made it look like the...

Re: Cavalry of the middle of the 18th century

I guess the balance between cavalry and infantry will also depend on the firepower given to infantry (and guns), won't it ?

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

Cavalry mounted crossbowmen ? Nice.
So AP=16 and not unmanoeuvrable ? Fast and agile non-light cavalry for flanking... ?
Will there be lots of this unit or is it a rare unit ?

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

Not only is the P&S style so immensely aesthetically pleasing to look at, it is also most functional: It is really easier to take in the entire situation at a glance. There is a reason why Chess pieces are not over-detailed. Good point! This is certainly one of the reasons why I like P&S so much. I...

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

I don't think the miniatures are more toy-like than in FoG2 Ancients : The 3D units are fine and of the same style of FOG2 Ancients. I'm talking exclusively of the maps. They're a bit too ... neat ... for my taste. It's a wargame after all. I think I even spotted some pretty red flowers somewhere ....

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

I must admit I like what some call the toy-like look of FoG2: Medieval. I don't think the 3D models are more toy-like than in FoG2 Ancients : https://i.imgur.com/rECct1F.jpg ... just that FoG2: Medieval is more colourful (textures), just like on the medieval pictures of the era one can still watch :...

Re: Need some book advices

Just a quick note to say that - "Ph. Contamine, La Guerre au Moyen Age, 2003" Is also available in English (as 'War in the Middle Ages'). I'd suggest its worth having in your library although I personally prefer Verbruggen and France. Too bad Verbruggen's book has never been translated in French, a...

Re: Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

But, ideally we will see a Pike and Shot 2 one of these days +1 ...maybe called 'FoG2: Renaissance' after 'FoG2(: Ancients)' and 'FoG2 : Medieval' ? ;-) Actually, please, no. I do not really see how P&S could be improved. And, much as I like FoG2, if I could have only one of the two, I´d choose P&S...
