Minneapolis/St. Paul

We've got a group that plays FoG in 15mm at The Source Comics and Games. We also run events at local conventions as well as "in between" meetups, so there are many opportunities to get a game in with a great bunch. If you'd like to give ancients a spin, shoot me an email at m_luhmann@yahoo.com and w...

My ancient Spanish Army

To celebrate the v2 release and the ability to take 1/3 of the scutarii/caetrati as Superior, I painted up an ancient Spanish army. 52 bases of Scutarii medium foot https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-3_eEQTA1VkE/UIcxiOCY3HI/AAAAAAAACfk/wdbceQYDA_M/w489-h305-n-k/P1040320.JPG https://lh5.googleusercon...

Rise of Rome v2-summary of changes?

I bought the FoG RoR v2 iPad app and due to the app locking up, I've had trouble reading this cover to cover. I'd like to be able to tell my FoG group what changed in the lists in v2. Is there a summary of changes in the supplement or on this site? I've looked and so far, all I've found is a change ...

Re: Changes to the Ancient Spanish list

Now that Rise of Rome v2 is out, I see the only change to the ancient Spanish list is that you can take 1/3 of Scutarii or Medium Caetrati battlegroups as Superior. In Sertorius' Lusitanians, those BGs can be no greater than 6 bases in size. In light of the discussions in this thread, I can't help b...

FoG2 iPad app crashing

I bought and installed FoG 2 and Rise of Rome via the Apple store over breakfast. I'm sorry to report that both are buggy to the point that they're not usable. FoG 2 crashes very frequently. It crashes when moving between chapters and also when paging within a chapter. The screen goes black and then...

If you're in Minneapolis/St. Paul, USA, and you'd like to give FoG a spin, shoot me an email at m_luhmann@yahoo.com. Our club plays FoG in 15mm but we also dabble in other historical rulesets.

I'm really looking forward to v2. Like Tom Petty sang, the waiting is the hardest part.

Re: pontic army resources?

I painted up a Pontic army this spring and treated it as an amalgamation of East meets West like Hazelbark mentioned. This link takes you to the overview of my Pontic project with a review of 2 books on Mithridates: http://twincitiesfieldofglory.blogspot.com/2012_03_01_archive.html Under the Pontic ...

Re: Ancient Spanish army-Heavy or Medium?

Ian, an ally would be good but that would screw up the 1/3 BG of Scutarii as superior that way I'm reading the proposed v2 change. I think the Spanish need 2 superior units of Scutarii 8 bases each for some muscle. Maybe I paint and base up the foot as medium on 40 x 20mm bases. If I get rolled over...

Re: Ancient Spanish army-Heavy or Medium?

Interesting. All I'd need is 8 bases of Legions. That would give the Spanish a superior heavy foot element. I have 160 Scutarii to paint up but once I'm done, I think I'll grab a few Legionnaire figures and add these as well. Thanks for the suggestion!

Re: Ancient Spanish army-Heavy or Medium?

Thanks Caliph, I think I'll give it a go as medium and as you suggested, utilize rear support and an IC. I probably need to tweak this a bit but for now... IC + 3 TC 2 units Scutarii Medium, Superior -16 bases 5 units of Scutarii, Medium, Average - 32 bases 3 Units of Small Shield Cav -12 bases 1 un...

Ancient Spanish army-Heavy or Medium?

I've always wanted to paint up an ancient Spanish army. To date, I've been dissuaded by my experience running Gauls where I got tired of being roadkill for my club. I've been peeking at the v2 changes and I'm going to paint up a Spanish army to celebrate version 2. Taking 1/3 of the Scutarii BG as S...

Re: Yuknoom takes to the Battle Road

Excellent report and thanks for sharing. Kudos for bringing a Mayan army to a tournament! You did really well with an impact medium army in an open tournament.

Hungarian versus Ottoman grudge match

I got in a game in this weekend with my Later Hungarians versus my Later Ottoman Turks. What I find fascinating about these two historical opponents is that the Hungarian army evolved and adapted to meet and parry the Turks. I've been curious how this matchup would play out on the tabletop. AAR here...

Re: A Field of Glory gallery

Thanks! Your Arthurian army is a treat to look at. I can't remember ever seeing one before and I especially liked you command bases. Very imaginative and nicely done!
