Order of March and Tournaments

RBS et al...

Something I'm not clear on, as its seems a bit grey in the rules. Is your intent that in a multi-round tourney a players order of march is fixed throughout the tourney, or is it merely the first thing you do when you find out who your opponent is in the current round?

Thanks
Cole

Javelin light horse and Camel/Elephant interactions in 25mm

The effect of camel and elephant disorder comes into effect when you approach closer than 1 base width. In 15mm javelin armed light cav can ride up and shoot without losing dice due to disorder, as they are 50mm away, and a base width is 40mm. In 25mm they would be disordered and lose dice as a base...

Thanks for the good report Christian! Great pics and what not, what did you use for the battlefield layouts? For my own part I had a good time despite being a bit run down after a long week. Some subsequent reading has revealed we made more than a couple more errors on the flank march (the first we'...

25mm 8'x5' Table Analysis and Playtest Proposal

Summary Putting aside my gamer hat and putting on my professional systems architect hat I did a little impartial analysis of some key dynamics of FoG and came up with three key factors that appear to have a significant impact when making a change to the table size to 8x5 for 25mm in FoG. They appear...

I would also like to see this settled, in particular, officially. First off, as a 25mm player, I feel like the rules treat the scale as an afterthought, or a second class citizen. I can't recall a system where the answer to the scale problem is "You get less stuff (650 vs 800), oh, and some of your ...

Since the Japanese lists are a ways off, I'd like to register a plea: Start fresh, and ignore the canon of mythology that has been built up around the military abilities of the Japanese, particularly among wargamers. And since the day is young, how about a few things to get discussion started: Who d...

Moving Generals in the Joint Action Phase

I've been wondering about this for a bit now. In the joint action phase is there a sequence as to who moves their generals first?

Oh yes, a few key details missing: 28mm 4x8 table 1" MU The 8 foot width was nice, as it meant we both had flanks we had to deal with. On the depth side, it still feels shallow, as we were on top of each other on the first turn. The double move with generals worked well on this size of board, as des...

Hey Steve,

I've been looking at mounted X-Bow cavalry as pretty useful in a theme setting where you can be sure to be facing knights or heavily armoured foot, in a wide open tourney setting I'm less convinced of their usefulness.

Have fun!

Design Philosophy Qs

RBS et al... Having had a bit of time to digest the contents of the army books I've seen so more, there's a few questions that I'd like to ask to eliminate some assumptions I'm making at this time, allowing for more informed discussion in this venue and others. First, some big picture questions: Is ...

Montezuma, That depends on the design philosophy that the developers have adopted. Are they rating troops based on their abilities solely related to the historical enemies, or by a larger scheme intended to balance the effect of differing technologies. At least some evidence points to the latter. Co...

Bow* and Impact

Am I correct in assuming that a second rank of Bow* doesn't shoot at impact, as its not explicity listed, or is it allowed to shoot based on the "treaded as bow except shoots less bases" covering statement.

Thanks
