I played this list once.
I don't remember precisely how much, but I was surprised by the total cost of the minimum compulsory troops (over 400 points at least IIRC).

1) On one occasion, a LF BG managed to catch an evading LF BG in the back. The impact phase did not gave it an advantage since the LF passed the CT (they were not disrupted since only skirmishers caught them, nor did the unsecure flank modifier apply). The evade move had finished on a hill. In the ...

I played another game with Olivier Thursday evening. With a lot of luck, my Egyptian managed to win against his Hittites. Here are a few questions and remarks which occured during the game. 1) On one occasion, a LF BG managed to catch an evading LF BG in the back. The impact phase did not gave it an...

4) As long as a troop is winning, the +2 bonus makes it almost immune to the death roll. This is specially true for small BG when used in a concentrated area. Their small frontage prevent the enemy to have too many dices against them. With several POA advantages, they get few hits and almost no cas...

1) Corner to corner contact In the course of the game, we ended up with a pike BG charging an elephant BG. Nothing happened during the first round (except Olivier being very surprised to see the elephants fight at --) Why --. El get a + vs HF. Pike get + for 4th rank but not the other + if charging...

3) The restriction on moves for undrilled troops within 6 of enemy is creating some problems IMO. In our game, an elephant BG broke a LF BG and pursued, getting past the companions which were engaged against the indian archers. Despite having no direct enemy and being led by a general, the elephant...

p9: charges: can you declare conditionnal charges? Assume that a single line of Cav is facing a BG of knights supported by some LH. Can the knight declare a charge, with the LH joining in if the Cav evade? Note that at the start of the sequence, the LH need a CMT to be able to charge the Cav which ...

p15: evading 3rd bullet: when 2 units are charging a single evader, I think that forcing the chargers to place their charge direction sticks before the enemy chooses which unit he evades could lead to absurd situations (in such a situation, the evader has 3 options: own rear, charger 1's direction,...

p6: quick terrain: a V shaped terrain could be more than 16MU between its ends without having any part more than 16MU across through the center. More generaly, are non convex shape allowed? Agreed. We are trying to avoid being to legal in style. We could say - fits entirely in a square 16MU each si...

p70: Open terrain: if an enemy is standing behind fortifications, is the move to reach them counted as "entirely in open terrain"? The current text can be read to say yes (fortifications impacts only POAs, not movement). In particular, must shock troops charge enemy behind fortifications? FF in ope...

I agree. Flank protection could/should be at least as important as rear support. I played a lot of WRG Renaissance G. Gush (2nd edition). In that rule, secure flanks are active, not passive, notions. This means that a unit has a secure flank if a friendly unit, not engaged in melee nor disordered, c...

A question related to pursuit after the game played yesterday. When are the casualties suffered by troops routing while still in contact with pursuers removed? Is it at the end or at the start of the rout/pursuit move? Looking at the order of the bullets, we played that it was at the start of the mo...

After game questions

I just had my first victory, using Alexander macedonian against classical Indians. Several questions or remark were raised during the game. 1) Do steady pike in a one rank deep formation prevent an opponent from using its swordmen POA?(same applies for chariots, lances...). Ranks are necessary to ge...

2B for me

I am used to counters and they are not a major problem for me.
Of course, some wounded figures or equivalent are better if you can have them.

I haven't received, yet, the 4.06 version.

Should I check again my spam controller in case it inadvertantly destroyed it?

p14: top interception diagram: a small boxed text seems to indicate that the presence of an enemy ZOI can prevent the execution of an interception. This is the only place where such a restriction is imposed on interceptions. Is it a leftover from a previous rule wording? If no, it should be explicit...

Misceallenous after game questions

Can an isolated general do a second move in the movement phase? Note that it is already quicker and can move in the interbound, so the extra movement is not necessary. But must he be attached to a BG to be able to make a 2nd move? An element is engaged in melee as an overlap. Can he shoot at another...
