Re: Passing through friendly camp?

Thanks for the answer. That was what we assumed.

But nowhere in that whole section is the word 'camp' used or inferred. We didn't think the camp was a 'unit' or a 'battlegroup' in any sense, so we we passed over that whole section after reading it three times through.

Passing through friendly camp?

Is this allowed?

Where is it stated in the rules that it is/is not?

We searched yesterday longer than I would like to no resolution... :shock:

Re: Early Swedes ... Cannot Be Beat

Anything new from the OP?

I'm still new to playing the period and my armies are in the early TYW. Anything to share?

Re: Observations from early gaming

Thanks, Don! We had most of that right, then! We just thought it weird that the leader was left alone, but hey! At least he's still in the fight!

Re: Observations from early gaming

Well, very different and faster game this weekend with getting the Death Rolls correct!

Another question: When a BG is lost due to auto-break, what happens to an attached leader? Does hit just sit on the table? Or does he leave with the unit?

Re: LittleArmyDesigner update

Furby - love the site! Thanks for your work!

Is there a reason while 'carbine' is missing the 'e' at the end? It's in some of the Wars of Religion book lists, particularly the 30YW Protestants and Catholics.

Re: Observations from early gaming

I got that last about the Death Tests vs. Cohesion

Without the +2 Death Tests are once again deadly in our next game. Just wish we had enough metal and terrain to have four people get in... :?

Re: Observations from early gaming

Do leaders get a third move when detached? The way I read it, no.

Re: Observations from early gaming

I thought I read on the table in the back that there was a +2 to the die for death tests from shooting... lemmie look...

Ah, now that I read through the whole thing, I see this does not apply to firearms. Thanks for making me re-read. Couldn't that have been stated easier?

Observations from early gaming

I have had this rules set for a few years now, but I am just getting the chance to put lead on the table. We noticed in our first go round that shooting does not seem to do anything unless you do/can inflict at least three hits against battle groups of 6+ stands. Is this truly the case, or have we d...

Did the books ship yet?

I know that Slitherine was supposed to get the books by the 21st of last month.

Did they manage to ship any before going on holiday? I think I've seen some gents post on here that they have theirs.

Will the rest of us just have to wait until next week to get confirmation of shipment? :D

Re: V2 Printed proof approved!

$40 USD is a bit more than I paid for the V1 rules, but might be willing to still buy in.

I wish there were somewhere in the forums where I could find a concise list of the major changes, so I know what I'm getting into.

Re: Field of Glory goes 2.0 !

Please, please keep paper copies as an option.

I have no interest in adding a computer or reading device to my miniatures gaming.

Thank you,

Has anyone heard if there will be something at Little Wars this year?

What about other smaller venues in the MW? I'm in Ft. Wayne and would travel for a day show to get a game in.

I'll admit that I might have to make my own opportunities to play. FoG (or ancients wargaming in general) doesn't seem to be too popular at conventions in my region. :idea:

15mm basing with Pendraken's figures are my current projects.
