Re: Keils and Overlaps - Questions from Godendag

Don, Thanks for the quick response. To be clear I wasn't trying to reform the keil in the melee phase. I was seeking to reform at the start of my opponent's manoeuvre phase (if I recollect correctly keils that are no longer in a legal formation must try to reform into a legal formation at the start ...

Keils and Overlaps - Questions from Godendag

Two queries that I have that both arose from a game I had on Saturday afternoon. A keil formed of 3 files of 4 pike plus 2 wings of 2 arquebusiers moved into combat. After prolonged fighting the position was that:- 1. The right hand arquebus wing was in combat with a commanded shot unit. 2.The first...

Re: Godendag 2015 Usk 17th/18th January

Thanks to the Good Doctor for running the most enjoyable tournament of the year once again. Myself and Mr Edwards graced it with our usual complete lack of competence but unbounded confidence ('the feeling you have before you know better') and achieved mid-table mediocrity. I thought some of the add...

Re: Cold Wars 2015

There's 4 guys from SELWG who are coming over for Cold Wars. None of us are real competitive types but we had hoped to play FOGR. It would need to be 15mm, carrying 28mm armies across the pond is not really feasible. Last year Jeff Fletcher ran a FOG-everything comp and I played in the FOGR bit. If ...

Re: Godendag - Usk Doubles - 18th/19th January 2014

So will we be getting a runners and riders this week before the grand pilgrimage to the valleys? Personally I was favouring Hungarians (Szekler cavalry - Bow*, Light Lance, Swordsmen, Superior) but I was over-ruled by my senior partner; so if there's lots of those fluffy Bow/Sword Ottoman types arou...

Heavy Weapons in melee

The entry says that you get a + against any except pike in 3 or more ranks etc. There is then a separate sentence ' Also cancels enemy 'better armour' POA if any.' I've always read the second sentence as being just that , separate from the first one. So I have assumed that whenever you have a base w...

Re: ATTACK! Devizes 20/21 July - Decline in the Mediterranea

Seconded.

Bryan and I had a most enjoyable time despite operating in the lower divisions throughout (largely due to a 1st round pasting from Don).

Chris

PS Note to self (again): stop trying to find ways to win against better players and look for ways not to lose :-)

Re: Naval units

Thanks Simon. I don't know what version I'm using :-) I'll have a hunt round the resources pages and see if I can download the latest version and fix the problem that way. Yes, the warship is definitely chrome; I'm not expecting very much from it, but then I'm not expecting very much from the games ...

Naval units

I'm using the standard FOGR spreadsheet with all the nicely automated bits but when I add a naval unit the box that shows the army's initiative modifier (cell ref; P8) comes up 'N/A'. Anyone else have this problem, and is there a fix for it? From the above you will gather than I have been persuaded ...

Re: BHGS Challenge 6/7 April 2013 - Runners and Riders

Just to second Pete's thanks to Kevin. Despite being soundly thrashed in 4 out of 5 games I really enjoyed the weekend. It was an eye-opener both in terms of what troop types work best and the way some troop type combinations can be used. To paraphrase Arnie 'I'll have to have another go at this lar...

Archers in Impact

I haven't played FOGAM for 3 years or more so I've completely forgotten the first iteration. I got the new rules last week and had my first game tonight. At one point a group of 6 Thracians (Protected with HW) charged a group of 6 MF Longbowmen (3 wide 2deep). If I read it correctly the Thracians go...

I had missed page 94.

Keils and Formation Change when charging

In our first game at Badcon Kevin Johnson drew my attention to the errata requiring a keil to reform as soon as possible if it has lost bases and thus no longer has the required 2 columns of 4 deep pike. I wondered how this interacted with the rule that prevents formation changes when charging. It's...

Re: BADCON 2013 - 16&17 Feb

Not fun enough. Paul and I used Early Danish because we didn't want to use an army we had played before. Paul used TYW Swedish at Slimbridge and I used Later Swedish at Usk. Mind you the fact that we only got the army on the table for the first time when we played you and Simon was probably pretty a...

Re: Heavy Weapons and Keils and Shot

I just looked that up again. If that's all there is I'm a bit concerned because the section on Page 34 is dealing with how you treat bases that are not pike or shot for unit formation. It doesn't say you can treat bases with HW (or Swd) capability as Pike for POA purposes in Impact and Melee. The ne...

Re: Break offs

I think it means that non-shock foot can break off if disrupted or fragmented, but shock foot can only break off if fragmented AND foot can only break off if all their close combat opponents are steady non shock foot.

Re: Heavy Weapons and Keils and Shot

Thanks Dave.

Mostly as I thought but I couldn't quite track down the bit about the HW (Swd) guys counting as Pk for the POA purposes. Do you know the reference off-hand?

Heavy Weapons and Keils and Shot

So I understand that if you have 6 pike bases and 2 bases with HW capability they can be a keil if you set them up 2 wide, 4 deep, with the pike as the 6 front bases; at least that's how I read page 29. But do the HW bases count as pike bases whilst they remain behind the pike bases - eg in determin...
