My note - this is a real solid development. There should be a lot of feedback from a tournament environment that might be more meaningful in at least some ways than feedback from casual play. People do things in cut-throat games (at least this side of the pond) that they might gloss over under more ...

Russian Civil War and interventionists? But (not to put a damper on the enthusiasm)... I would prefer to wait and see what the mechanics of FoG-R and FoG-N turn out like before suggesting ANY further ventures. Something that works very well to capture ancient and medieval battles in tabletop miniatu...

Probably at some scale yes. But certainly rather different element types within the BG.

I recognize the following is all just my own opinion, but I might not be the only one who thinks this way and, without getting into any flame wars or anything, it is a viewpoint that should be mentioned. My honest and real opinion is that the "ancient and medieval wargames" world should end at the V...

I'm adding to this old thread because I wonder if I can find answers to a couple of questions. 1) At Hastings the Royal Huscarls were formed up on foot in the front rank of the English army. Does FoG provide a mechanism whereby this deployment is simulated, i.e. the elite professionals used to give...

Macedonians

Yet another Alexandrian Macedonian list. No big suprises, probably roughly similar to many others. I went more for what I see as historical representation (in my own mind) than as an open tournament winner. I am probably limiting this to playing roughly in period (say stuff only from Rise of Rome or...

quick off hand observation from a complete and total noob... in the unlikely event I understand the rules correctly... you have 12 bg's so would break on losing 6. the camp, fortified or not, would count as 1 of those 6 - and that is all it is doing for you. another BG of _anything_ in place of the ...

Montgisard (forgive sp, not even sure I do not have the name confused with another battle) circa 1170's I believe A Templar army fought Saladin, forget who won for sure but I think the battle resulted in Saladin turning back and going home for the campaign season someone else can look up the details...
