Re: FOGN tournament in Sydney

Crikey ! That all sounds very sensible. I can stitch together a very large 1812 Russian infantry army amassing some 38 ACV ... it's tough to beat in any competition time-frame, but also not the easiest to press an opponent for a result. Very very solid though and with plenty of cavalry (inc 5 units ...

Re: FOGN tournament in Sydney

Hmmmm ... if Marty isn't bringing the huge Austrian-mire then this is could be my chance to bring over the 1792 Prussians :-) ??

Re: crazy command idea

I'm with Geoff ... DO NOT mess with the Charge, Shoot, Move sequence - it is by far and away the bestest thing about FoGN. Corps d'Armee (CdA) really was a great set of rules ... the "initiative" mechanism was especially very very cleverly done and made for an amazing game; but, equally, that truly ...

Re: Victorian Napoleonic Champs in Melbourne 16 & 17 July 20

A brilliant event ... as always !! Great games in a good environment against opponents who are pleasure to play; the perfect toy soldier event ! The Melbourne crew were very welcoming and make the trip worthwhile every time. But the biggest of thanks go to Richard for his stunning organisation and t...

Re: Victorian Napoleonic Champs in Melbourne 16 & 17 July 20

Geoff, you'll really have to play a WHOLE LOT worse than you did in Brisbane last year to even get a game against me !! I have played the sum-total of just 6 games since then so will be much worse than "rusty". Plus, the combination I am using in Melbourne will see a table top for the very first tim...

Re: NZ National Championships - Easter 2016

Pre-game initiative scores (army level + CnC level):

1 army = 2

1 army = 3

4 armies = 4

1 army = 5

1 army = 6

Re: NZ National Championships - Easter 2016

Kendall, that is a very noble and kind offer. In practice, it would mean me needing to redo the draw from scratch and I don't have much free time between now and then. Also, Andrew has a wedding to attend/avoid at his place Saturday arvo and I was going to swap rounds 1 and 4 to accomodate that for ...
