Luddite wrote:Just out of interest, why is the fortified camp compulsory?
Because the Roman army of that period routinely built fortified camps at the end of each day's march when on campaign. They only varied in the depth of the ditch and height of bank depending on the level of threat.

A 4 AP loss for an objective is a lot and that woudl contribute to a final decision. I was talking to the old WRG 7th/Warrior organizers. They have dumped their terrain rules. Gone for pre-set terrain. And increased the deployment zone for more frontal action. They claim it has re-energized part of...

Objectives (not under consideration for v.2)

Last weekend we played a tournament near Barcelona using FOG v1 with objectives using the following rules: 1. Pre-set terrain with initiative winner (attacker) choosing side. 2. Defender moves up to two pieces of terrain as per rule (6 becomes 5) 3. Defender places camp followed by attacker 4. Attac...

Depends on the scale you're playing at really. With 5000 men to a legion an 8 base BG gives you 625 men to a base.

Armies that used skirmishing tactics and feigned flight tactics would not have been phased by the entire army evading. Besides, a BG wouldn't be able to see beyond the BGs on its flank. They would have little idea of what was going on beyond their immediate vicinity. Not happy with the first idea. S...

"Yes - Can rail into or adjacent to cities. Cannot rail out of." states the manual for supply level 3 in the supply range chart. Sounds like a feature :D

Thanks.

Reading the manual? What a novel idea! Sounds almost like cheating. :roll:

Except for the Russians, no army in WW II one really used traditional WW I style massive bombardments, so having it as tech work better in this game.

Imbalance between Axis and Allies?

I've played about five PBEM games on both sides and I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that it's very difficult for the Axis to last until 1945 unless they play an almost flawless game. If you repeat historical blunders like Stalingrad, you're toast well before the historical date for the fall of ...

I didn’t bother to collect that stats on that but it might suggest that Legion heavy Roman army isn’t an easy one for inexperienced players even if it’s a popular choice.

1. But did the Romans beat the Hellenistics by frontal attacks on the phalanx in good order, or by outflanking or breaking up its formation (as Polybius describes), Both. Actually, to be pedantic, the Romans never won a single frontal battle against a continuous phalanx in good order. They won it b...
