Re: Amendments to V3?

I've become used to some of my suggestions being ridiculed but I've made them in a genuine attempt to try and improve the declining position of FOG-AM.

Rather than knocking holes in my arguments it might serve us all a great deal better if positive suggestions were made instead.

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...

Amendments to V3?

We've been playing with V3 long enough now to properly evaluate it. I think most players agree that this is the best version yet, with a quicker, more decisive gameplay. Unfortunately, as a successful rule set, FOG-AM is probably at its lowest level yet. It's clear from Tim Porter's recent end of ye...

Re: Belgarum 2020 22nd 23rd february

Because the dominate field at can be auxiliary, these are not subject to the same restriction
Presumably, so long as they're fielded as MF?

Count me in please. How do I pay?

Re: Belgarum 2020 22nd 23rd february

I can see a lot of Roman Civil wars occurring.
That's a bit worrying isn't it? What started out as a limitation on legionaries has turned into one on skilled swordsmen. Needs sorting...

Re: The Northern Classic

Notes to players:

There's a fish and chips shop round the corner on the main road, open Saturday lunch and tea times, and a general store next door, open all hours.

Terrain mats will be provided for all tables and the club has a good selection of terrain available if required.

Re: Problems with movement trays...

So is there a way a contiguous line of, say, 6 8-base pike units can wheel individually?

Problems with movement trays...

I like using pike armies and use some nifty magnetised movement trays that allow 8 or sometimes 12 base units to move around so much more easily. However, I came across a problem with them during one of my recent Britcon games. After deployment my opponent had a useful overlap on my line of pikes. I...

Re: Britcon 2019 - What would you like to do?

Wow! After the high proportion of Roman armies at Devizes it looks like there's been a lot of second guessing the same would happen at Britcon - including by myself. Never seen so many elephant/pike armies before! I'm not opening a book on it but I think this might play into the hands of my fellow M...

Re: Warfare 2019

I'm on the reserve list so, just in case, will need to get quite a bit of painting done for this, for me, unusual period. However, I applaud this: Players must supply their own terrain pieces. These must be to an acceptable standard, and umpires will have the discretion to remove unsightly items. We...
