Re: shooting 1 dice per two bases at 2 different BGs

so basically if say 70% of the BG of 4 bases in two ranks is facing one BG and the other 30% is facing another BG and if it is 1 die per 2, the one die is effectively wasted because you can't have half a die? It seems that the logical position would be that the 1 die should be allocted to one side ...

Re: shooting 1 dice per two bases at 2 different BGs

What I didn't mention was that also K3X3 is partially in front of the left K1 opposing BG , though less than half, if that makes any difference? X3 will shoot according to target priorities on p79. It's shooting from the position of K3. So the priority target is whichever enemy base is in effective...

Re: shooting 1 dice per two bases at 2 different BGs

That is interesting about the Xbow getting 1 dice per base rather than 1 per two. Is that version 3 or the same as vesrion 2? If in the example above, say it was bow* or back rank bow what would the answer be? What I didn't mention was that also K3X3 is partially in front of the left K1 opposing BG...

Re: shooting 1 dice per two bases at 2 different BGs

So in all cases where the back rank are shooters and the first rank are not then the back rank are counted as front rank and therefore get 1 dice per base? Yes, if they are in effective range (and cavalry only have an effective range. The relevant wording at the top of page 89 is "If the front rank...

Re: Pre-Battle Initiative

Terry, I suggest you read the first part of the terrain rules on page 136. If you are playing outside of a competition, it says you can ignore some of the terrain rules. So why not agree something sensible for terrain with your opponent?

Re: Aztec vs Champa

Interesting match up between two different armies and a great game by the look of it. I feel suitably inspired to try a solo game myself! They are interesting games. The skill of the players is completely matched, so all you have as differentiators are the tactics and randomness of the dice, which ...

Re: Pre-Battle Initiative

Take a TC as CiC and less than 10 mounted bases. You'll then have at least a 50% chance of fighting in your own territory. And you'll be able to afford more MF.

Re: CONVENIENT BASE REMOVAL

You must lose a base which is nearest to the shooters. Then you replace it as Christopher says. Sometimes this could work to you advantage in theory but I've never seen that happen in a game.

Warfare 2020 Theme

All, in the expectation we'll be back to normal by November I've put together the theme based on feedback received. It's Western Europe Dark Ages (396-1100 AD). We're going to use a handicap system with three bands who'll get 800, 850 or 900 points depending on rankings over the last few years - the...

Re: Northern Classic 2020

If you did it as a doubles competition you could have double matched pairs i.e. one of the partners plays Serbian vs Ottoman and the other plays Ottoman vs Serbian. That way any bias in the match up evens out. You could also have unequal points that way.

Re: Amendments to V3?

Making it easy to get the books outside of the UK should be a given. Why not inside the UK, too? I recently bought a PDF copy of ADLG for just €5. Doing similar for FOG (and the army list books - which were included with ADLG) might just tempt some of the dozens and dozens of players we've lost to ...

Re: Amendments to V3?

.The difficulty in getting the books (and the cost) is preventing growth here in the US now. A great shame! I would have thought making the set available as a PDF would have been a smart move. Better to sell some at, say, a tenner than none in book form. The world of FOG-AM really needs some positi...

Re: Lithuanian Army Lists?

Hello, I'm not the designer but am aware of his rationale. The thinking was to reduce the number of army list books from lots down to 3 to save on cost to players and there were casualties.

Re: Bursting through FOGAM2/FOGR

Thanks Graham, that kind of clarifies it. The only point we seem to differ on with you is that the evaders are destroyed. If a BG is forced to burst through and there is no room beyond it is destroyed as per page 51. I think the "cannot complete an evade move by any of the above, move as far as the...
