Re: Armies with Gendarmes

The classic army of Landsknechts with Gensdarmes would be the French army of 1515 at Marignano. Some 17000 Landsknechts - among them the some 5000 strong Black Band - Francis and all the French Gensdarmes he could bring on battling some 20000 Swiss. The Battle of Giants, they called it... In the yea...

Re: UK FoGR Competiton scene heading for a crash?

If what we are saying is that massed cavalry armies routinely beat late 17th C armies, Swiss, Tercios and the rest, with comparatively little risk of a reversal, then the implication is that either the points values or more likely the unit gradings are wrong. It could also be a question of the scen...

Re: NEW ARMY LIST CALCULATOR ONLINE

Found it. The rulebook gives exactly this list, but says only "Imperialist". Its actually a "Caroline Imperial" list, indicating that its the one of Pavia that battled the French there. Actually the Caroline armies in Italy usually had a higher portion of Landsknechts, especially at Pavia. But thats...

Re: NEW ARMY LIST CALCULATOR ONLINE

I used the tool to create my own army list, worked out quite well. Fine Work!

The "Maximilian Imperial" starter list is not conform to the actual list in TaT, though.

Re: Errata to go in Errata V1.09

While you're at it can you remove the anomaly created by: "uncontrolled artillery does not count as enemy to either side"? (p 127) Would it not be better to add "uncontrolled artillery will be captured by moving into cohesion" - instead of charging empty guns... This would avoid the anomaly without...

Re: Italian wars: Bande Nere for Italian States / Papacy

Alas Giovanni was rarely (not until the campaign of 26/27 in command of the army, so he cannot be the C-in-C. Nor has he given us an indication that he WAS a GC, probably due to a lack of opporunity before his death. We could introduce this as a special rule (GC as sub-commander) or simply make him ...

Re: Burgundian Ordonnance

Here is a rework of the list, with the household gensdarmes in a "speculative" category and both heavy and medium artillery. I propose you use medium vs. contemporary opponents, and heavy artillery for matches out of their timescope.

Artillery - I am not sold on the availability of "heavy" artillery to the Burgundians. While they surely had some for siege purposes, their field pieces would imho be classed as medium when compared to the "heavy" pieces of the later armies.

I will move the debate on the Burgundian Ordonnance over to the other thread.

What other FOG armies justifiy a FOG-R representation?

Ordonnance French
Swiss?
Early Maximilian army. German 13-1500 seems too broad.

Perhaps the FOGR lists for these are sufficient?

Timmy, any input will be greatly appreciated. I think I will make a try once I get back a copy of "Storm of Arrows".

Well, this nice little corner is not exactly well used, but... I was wondering wether it makes sense to create a standard conversion for older lists, mainly "Storm of arrows" to use with FOG-R? Where will the point cost differ? Or is there a chance that a "book of lost scrolls" for FOG-R will contai...

Re: Colunela Foot

Another thing - in (for example) the Caroline Imperialist list it states (in Germany et al) that you must have as many Landsknects as Colunela foot. Note that (for armies in Flanders or Germany) you need to have at least as many BATTLEGROUPS, not bases. That means that 4 Landsknecht arquebusiers we...

Armour is relative

"Armour" in the context of a system that includes the most heavily armoured cavalry known to us, the fully plated and barded Gensdarmes, is a term that is probably not appropriate for units that wore a cuirass and - perhaps - a helmet. I know that full Gensdarmes are "fully armoured", but "armoured"...
