Re: Points costs, revised proposals

As you say it's marginal. Another consideration is that Unarmoured Superior DH Pi/Pi only cost 17 points a base with this proposal. They fight Cuirassiers just as well as armoured ones.

Re: Points costs, revised proposals

I've fixed the typos for Average Camels and Heavily Armoured Foot, thank you for spotting them. Bow* are 0 points. In my opinion they're not as good as Crossbows which have always been 0 points, plus they are normally carried as a secondary item which makes those troops that use them seem overpriced...

Re: Points costs, revised proposals

Thanks Ben, yes, you're right, the second one is Average, not Superior.

Re: Derby Worlds 2017

I have posted a revised points proposal in the Update section. This isn't firm yet, but it is my intention to use this for Derby. I will confirm any changes based on input received before the end of August. The rules revisions will otherwise be the set used for Britcon, unless as Tim has noted anyth...

Points costs, revised proposals

Following the comments received on the initial set I've created a revised proposal to take into account concerns raised. It is my intention to use this for the Derby Team competition. I am open to comments/suggestions but will be looking to fix this (for Derby at least) before the end of August. Her...

OK, I've now received lists from:

Eric Thomson
Bruce Rollett
Chris Marston
Dave Parish
Simon LeRay-Meyer
Keith Spedding
Stephen Stead

I'd like to receive the outstanding ones soon so I can publish the R&R. So far there are 7 different armies.

Re: Updates - where we are at

With points values, although the main feedback was related to Cavalry costs, the values have to be considered as a whole and in relation to all of the changes. For example, if you change the Cavalry cost, is the cost of Horse correct in proportion? Are DH/Cavaliers/Gendarmes then correct? How then d...

Re: Embedded Photos and Other Images - Problems ahead

Thanks Don. I'll look into Imjur. I've also wondered if it's possible to link to a Public Dropbox folder.

Photos and other images in posts - Problems ahead

In order to include a photo or other image in a post it needs to be linked from a site where the image is hosted.

Re: Updates - where we are at

As Tim mentioned, for Britcon we had to choose between using the previous proposals (to which the general response was that they went too far), using the existing points system or inventing a new one. We felt that we were too close to the event for the last option so decided to go with the original ...

Re: Attack! 2018

you get the re-roll on Shooting, Melee, Cohesion Tests and CMTs. If you take "Re-roll a 1" literally I suppose it's not much help! But realistically it's often the different between passing or failing. At the moment it's largely a no-brainer to take all the Superiors you can.

Re: Britcon 2017 - 11-13 August

I think the one that you're looking for is Early Gustavan Burmese. It's in the 7th book of army lists "Armies of the Imagination".

Re: Britcon 2017 - 11-13 August

Thanks Dave, the link seems to be going to the old version.

Stephen, the points should be as in the original rules except for Elephants, Swedish Brigades and Commanded Shot.

Re: Britcon 2017 - 11-13 August

The actual rule changes are the same as have been played previously. We have mainly reverted to the original points costs as feedback was that the reductions trialed were too great and we felt that it is too close to the event to produce a whole new set. The only changes to points that have been kep...

Re: Attack! 2018

It's good to know that Fog R will be an option next year, so thanks to Bob for getting that organised. The Italian Wars theme is good, although I feel that if you're including the Turks it seems strange to exclude their neighbours the Hungarians (and their revolting peasants). You may wish to also e...

Re: Derby Worlds 2017

We now have confirmation of an entry by Les Trois Mousquetaires (Chris Beesley, Clive McLeod and Tim Wickens). This gets us to seven, so another team would be great if anyone's up for it.

Re: Derby Worlds 2017

I've had a query regarding Pool 3 and the armies permitted. For clarification: For Pool 3 the main army chosen must be able to field 4 elephants. You may add any permitted ally. The army submitted must contain at least 4 elephants which may come from the main army or any ally. So for example: Main a...
