Re: Muromachi Japanese

"For each BG of detached Bushi you have to field a BG of detached followers; Do the bowmen figthing behind standing shields count as such?" My reading of this is no because they have been given their own maximum & minimun. "How is it usually made up, with all the detached bushi as cavalry?" Some of ...

In FoG the attacker gets some choice in what the general type of terrain will be ranging from Steppe (the most open) to Mountains (says it all). Then each player has a degree of choice on types of terrain actually represented on table and dice throws decide where the terrain is - usually (but not al...

Sounds like you have been on the wrong end of a series of bad dice throws. That's what the fat old men use in the tabletop battles to produce random events! Although you are playing on a computer there is a fairly high degree of randomness to all battle results and your random number generator has n...

Whats with later serbian?

Duh - probably because you get loads of superior knights and a smattering of superior halberds plus a bit of filler bowmen :wink:

Smack in and hope for the best.

A couple of weeks ago in a club 'competitive' game I fould my Middle Plantagenets (Royal Household Knights, 3x4 Knights, 5x6 Unprotected Longow, 2x6 Def Spears & 1x4 Sergeants) up against Middle Plantagenet with the Irish option, less knights and more Def Spears and his longbows were protected.

Ow - I sure pricked a boil there didn't I :shock: Unfortunately I'm old enough to remember WRG5th, DBM (god knows how many tweaks) and all those in between until the delivery of FoG (AM&R) which blew a breath of fresh air across the steppes, reinstated the twang of the bowstring, the thrill of the c...

Do we have to have a new Version?

Setting aside Pedants and Unsportsman like behaviour - I don't think so.

What do you think?

Well we did try this scenario again last weekend and apart from us jointly getting the Gulay Gorod rules wrong the Russians performed magnificently again. Although the Russian open flank once again collapsed the Polish Hussars and Cossacks just could not exploit this before the Polish centre collaps...

All very true but when I get personal mails from various players in RSA who really want to play FoG and organise their own FoG tournaments but are told that they cannot do so without sanction from MSSA something is a little wrong.

Re: Roman Fort near Yorkshire?

The NorthEast is stuffed full of history.

Looking at the picture of Kluszyn 1610 (See Wikipedia) the baggage camps are too small :shock: The Russians had one camp on the left and their mercenary allies another to the right. The two together extended across the whole of the width of the army deployed if the painting is to be believed. If thi...
