I expected a little more comments about the generals issue I proposed? I was wondering what other people had to think about the points I raised? Especially if they are exactly the same for all armies, why should anyone need to pay for their first three generals??? I considerate identical lost point...

Greetings I like the idea of a FoG TNE. We would need a separate thread per army discussed but that would seem to make sense. This might also evolve into something that list notes could be created from. I really would like to see something like TNE done for FoG - TNE has proved very useful - you hav...

List to use for Edward IV and Henry VII French expeditions

Greetings The core units for these two expeditions to France are probably the dismounted knight/bill and retinue longbows from the WoTR list with artillery (expressly mentioned and favourably compared to Burgundy's for Edward IV's 1475 expedition). Any thoughts what other options a 'national' as opp...

Greetings

There was quite a lot of stock of Immortal Fire at Salute. I picked up a copy having not got round to ordering via Amazon.

I also saw pre-release copies (at the Osprey stand) of Swords and Scimitars and Legions Triumphant). The latter interests me more than the former.

Greetings From immediate off the top of the head thoughts. 1. Troy - in D Day terms it's only 'Funny' was a WVGI (Wooden Vehicle Greeks Inside). 2. Marathon 490 BC - although in the battle the ships could be a camp - Mykale was an assault on the camp so probably wouldn't count 3. Sphacteria 4. Sicil...

Greetings I presume you mean Magister Militum with their Navigator figures? IIRC they have some sort of special offer on at the moment reducing the cost of their 25mm figures. See http://www.magistermilitum.com/news.asp I've dealt with them at shows for their 15mm, 10mm and ship ranges and find them...

Greetings A limitation of the game system is also that there can be only one BG of elephants (IIRC) whereas the indications are that Pyrrhus may have used them on each wing and I would like to simulate this on the tabletop. Surely a limitation of the list rather than of the system? For scenarios you...

Just to clarify as far as cohesion tests go the table on p.113 is clear that the -1 is for any one of the factors listed (which includes 'Any troops testing for having lost close combat even partly against elephants or scythed chariots'.

Seems entirely reasonable to me. One of my thoughts was to have a mounted commander with a foot officer or standard on the same base to identify the CinC and have the other commanders as single figures.

Greetings One of the things about thinking 'has my BG lost?' (rather than won) is that it is probably not a thought process that people will have come across in other rules so it takes a bit longer to become an automatic reaction. I imagine when it does it flows pretty smoothly - those who have play...

For 15mm and smaller I use craft sticks with either blutack or PVA to keep the figures on. The craft sticks are cheap and reusable. I've got multi coloured ones so I tend to group units by the colour of the craft stick.
