Re: Swiss Army

Hi There Am I right that Hammy said the winner at Britcon fought with Swiss without pikes, any idea what army list was used in the Storm of Arrows minimum Pike is eight bases. Dave Hi Dave he probably meant he use the early Swiss 1360 to 1421 and you are right must have at least 8 pikemen. What Ham...

Re: Tests due to a general being killed in persuit

Hammy you say its clear on the full sequence of play but unlike the Impact phase and the melee phase when it tells you after taking a cohesion test to put any routs in it does not on the Joint action phase when you test for seeing commanders lost! Andy. :?: Good point, it doesn't mention making rou...

Re: Tests due to a general being killed in persuit

A unit in close combat routs - it has a general leading it. All BGs in 3 inches test for the rout. The unit then routs and the general goes with it. The persuing unit stays in contact - kills a base from the routing unit and kills the general. A new unit not previously with 3 inches is now within 3...

I also believe the foot companions can only be in BG`s of 8 if you want them to be MF not 12`s!

Re: Britcon rule query

During one of my games we had a situation where one his battle groups incorporating an inspired commande routed. This required a test for another unit which was within 3 inches. We then had a debate as to whether the general could apply his bonus when in the initial rout. My recollection was that t...

Well is seems British reserve is such that there are significantly more lists submitted by non British players than by Brits at the moment. OK the fact that no British players have sent a list yet may have something to do with it but..... Come on guys, make your minds up :D Oh thats good coming fro...

I have to disagree I like heavy weapons, because they always get there POA unless fighting Ssw. I agree they do suck against cavalry, but you shouldn't be fighting cavalry with them anyway. The only things I think I would do to your list is make the Hypaspists 8 strong and add another BG of 8 stron...

There is a limit of no more than 6 Greek mercenary/Allied Traditional Hoplites after 328 BC which using the Scythians requires. I'm not sure if this applies to MF Ipkikratian Hoplites (your MF) or not but would not allow you to upgrade them to HF. I just posted my idea for alist to the previous Ale...

Yep you are missing something which is the right tactics under FOG .... ride up closer and see what happens. Stop 5 MU away. If they come up to fire don't charge but ride up to them nice and close. If they don't do the same. Now see how much they enjoy it - of course you have to be able to take the...

Hi Luddite, Looking at the picture the pike what hit the LH BG looks to me it did not entirely start from behind the LH flank and if that was the case it would not be a flank attack you would just get extra dice for the pikemen then i believe your pikemen would wheel back the minimum to line up par...
