Thanks for the feedback - at least my question was as bizarre as I first thought. I reckon I will go for chorts and Alae for auxilliaries (later roman armies). Next question how many elite cohorts could reasonably be justified in a campaign? Sulla's army was the main field army made up of a high num...

Cohort or Legion

I am partnering in a campaign on the Sulla, Marius, Pontic, campaigns and intend to keep a simple blog of the campaign. lets see if manage to record all 39 turns. Anyway I am wondering how you would describe a 6 figure legionary unit would it be a cohort or a legion in campaign terms. My logic tells...

Surely Bttn Gun depiction will depend on scale as noted earlier. I would have thought best represented as a factor in units that have them, rather than specific bases.

Absolutely I have been waiting for Renaissance rules update since DBR fell out of use, used to be my favorite over ancients. Love FOG quite excited about this development. :D

I used a Mid Republican army 600 points in which I made my velites protected with the intent to engage my opponents skirmish line. It worked the armoured + in melee made all the difference that plus poor CT rolls by my opponents, hot knife through butter. I noted that any broken enemy BG carries the...

Would appreciate some clarity

I have a skirmish foot BG routing it has to pass through HF friends immediately to its rear.

LF can "pass through troops in any direction, therefore is this a burst through or an interpenetration?

Optimum unit size

Having played a few games read many posts and contemplating redesigning my armies I am trying to determine what the optimum unit size is. There are a number of factors that need to be considered namely quality, equipment, cost and strategy or historical application of type. [may well be others]. I n...

Hi Just interested in the unit sizes. I note the veteran legionaries are 6 bases and the other legionaries 4 bases. I would have thought the vets would not be larger than the normal line? I appreciate its a matter of choice. I also wonder if the barbarian warbands are more useful at 8's rather than ...

Thanks for reply It makes better sense than my assumption. I have read the rules many tmes but when playing a game you cannot always fine the correct references. much appreciated.

Skirmish Foot charging skirmishers who evade - options?

OK my velites charge phyrric LF who evade beyond the main pike line. The main pike line is within charge distance of velites! I played that the velites having tested to charge continue into the main line, I also assumed that the LF evaders do not disrupt the main line I also assumed the velites coul...

We also had issues with the different moves, in our case using battle lines and having mixed movement distances which ended up causing CMT's for the whole battle line as some troops were not moving their full distance (i.e. a simple advance)... Wow I missed that one - Difficult Forward Moves - inte...

Tony and I have played a Repo Romans vs Cartaginians game, not using the starter armies, but not so different, and I found the same (being the Punic player). The Repo's are very hard frontally, especially the armoured ones. Hi Ed, I'm Paul not Phil, happy to make your acquaintance Thanks for the fe...

Thanks for the feedback guys When you start a new game system it takes time to appreciate concepts and get the correct feel or perception of the rules. Indeed if you have no source of effective feedback things will not improve. Just be patient with us newbies. I have to say when I played the starter...

Thats fine Just ensuring I understand - I am more than happy with this stance, personnally with my limited table size it makes 28mm more playable.

However, I would try the game with the 1" MU first. Bear in mind (compared with DBM) we increased the length of 15mm moves - the length of 28mm moves are very similar to those in DBM. So unless you thought the 28mm moves were too short in DBM for a good game (which we didn't), they aren't too short ...

this is correct - however as you have only 2 bases you will be fighting on a 1 base frontage - so it is very hard to take the 3 hits required to loose a base from shooting or winning the close combat. As Superior/Elite armoured offensive spear you are unlikely to loose a close combat. Unluck dice ro...
