Re: retiring when fragmented

Agreed that turning does not usually get you closer to the enemy. But the bit I was reading was on page 149 regarding fragmented troops where it says " a simple move to retire away from all enemy within 12 MU but must CMT for any other move". So turning in itself doesn't get you away from the enemy ...

retiring when fragmented

Rarely comes up but when it did we ended up with different interpretations: 1.If fragmented you can retire facing the enemy as a simple move as long as you end up further away from all enemy within 12MU. 2. As above but first you have to turn and then move away in subsequent turns unless of course y...

Fighting whilst in contact with routers

Had an unusual situation today, for us anyway, where an enemy unit broke during Impact and in the pursuit the winners contacted a fresh enemy with a base and remained in contact with routers with another base whilst maintaining unit integrity. During the melee phase can the winners count the base in...

Re: Britcon 2018

Not so sure of that. Indeed some people are at our club who are really interested in Eastern Europe but the majority are still using FOGR. My feeling is that the rules will continue very nicely at club level, albeit in different forms depending on your opinion of the changes, but seems to be slowly ...

Re: Southampton 2018 confirmed now CANCELLED

Sorry all but we did not appear to be getting the same level as support as last year with even our local players having other commitments. So before I ran into the booking cancellation fee period for the hall I had to make a decision about the likely viability of the event and decided to cancel.

Southern League Southampton 2018...or not?

Time is fast approaching when we have to book a venue if we are going to do a round of the league in 2018. Last year we dodged a bullet because the new amendments were still under discussion but now they have been officially adopted for competitions and therein lies a quandary. Problem I have is tha...

Re: UK year-end 2017 rankings

Confusingly there are the "Wessex Wargamers of Winchester", also based in Hampshire, but the Wessex Wargames Society has been going for a wee bit longer just having hit the 50th anniversary mark.

Re: Why no shooting weapons for Elizabethan light horse?

No idea myself but don't forget one of the design philosophies of FOG is about how the troops behaved and not necessarily what they were armed with. Parthians cataphracts often had bows but they don't shoot in FOG.

Re: Bows

Similarly I am not happy with a lot of the changes but I will ignore most of them and carry on playing FOGR because it is intrinsically a very good set. It helps that our club has the same view and I am essentially not a competition player.
Carry on regardless I say.

Re: List Changes

"Any list that includes a minimum number of Dragoons that must be fielded has this minimum removed. E.g 3-8 becomes 0-8." We feel that given the significant changes to the way Dragoons work that this is appropriate. The cynic in me suggests that having emasculated them we don't want to foist them o...

Thanks Bob. As always a team effort in particular regard to Mark who came up with the venue and transportable boards as we did not have access to the club ones.

Re: News

How is a pole arm versus a Heavy Weapon?
No idea of the specifics but the idea was to make a pole arm better against mounted at impact but less effective than HW in melee. Just guessing but maybe pole arm won't have the armour cancelling ability that the can openers do.

Re: Southern League FOGR 2017 at Southampton

I thought Don Avis was going to take part.
I hoped so too so I wouldn't have to play!!

Presumably he couldn't make it as Alasdair had him on the list of players and was going to chase up a list from him.

Some interesting choices of armies. Not seen Irish or Anglo-Irish on the table for FOG R. Less Scots than I expected. Yes, the Celtic fringe is well represented.
