Re: Derby Worlds 2017

That was probably my error. When I compiled this from last year's information I missed the revised total. It should of course be 2350 points.

Re: Derby Worlds 2017

I'm going to send the themes to the new organisers next week. The revisions should be finalised and published soon.

Re: Derby Worlds 2017

As there have been no alternative suggestions, I intend to finalise these as this year's themes unless there are any alternative suggestions by this weekend (20/21 May).

Re: Doubles 2017?

This would actually be 2 weeks before Derby (7/8 October) if that helps.

Re: Derby Worlds 2017

OK, here's my initial suggestion for themes. Any tweaks or alternative suggestions will be gratefully received. Other than restrictions imposed by the theme there will be no additional special conditions and we will use the rules as modified by the forthcoming update. Pool 1 - 700 points, 25mm. The ...

Re: Derby Teams Venue Change

For Derby we like to run tighter themes than normal because each team only has to provide one of each. Each pool will only have 6-8 players, so there's plenty of scope for variety even with a restricted theme. Last year we had an Americas theme, so we're looking to do something different this year. ...

Re: Derby Teams Venue Change

OK, in preparation for official go ahead, let's get some thoughts together on pools/themes. 1) Do we want to retain a 25mm Pool? If so it probably has to be ECW/30YW as that's what most people have in that scale. We normally have a Western Pool in 15mm and something from the hairy fringes. Last year...

Re: Proposals summary for playtesting

If you want to put a table (e.g. from Excel) into a post you need to convert it into an image and add it that way. I use the Windows snipping tool to capture the table as an image and save it as a JPG. Then I upload the image to Photobucket (you can create a free account) and use the Copy function t...

Re: Derby Teams Venue Change

If we're going to have Fog R at Derby, as Tim has pointed out, we'd need a minimum of 18 players for a viable team event. So far only the French team has indicated it would come (Thank you Denis!) and I've had one individual enquiry. So, who would be up for this? If we can get 6 teams I believe I ca...

Re: Cavalry - a package of proposals

This was included as a proposal following discussion. You can see most of that here: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=450&t=75538 . Remember that it's only Cavalry in one rank. It probably isn't much benefit if you're strung out in one rank in front of a P&S BG, but then under the cur...

Re: Potential Dates for 'Way of The Warriors' 2017

We're not currently considering it but if the points changes cause concerns about army sizes it might need to be revisited.

Re: Potential Dates for 'Way of The Warriors' 2017

Yes, that's correct, there is no limit on the number of BGs that could be fielded, only those that count towards the army break point.

Re: Potential Dates for 'Way of The Warriors' 2017

Personally I'd class the Buccaneers as a European army. They're just unofficial colonists.

Re: Potential Dates for 'Way of The Warriors' 2017

It's probably worth pointing out that the Max BG formula, if it's adopted, is dependent on army size, so a 750 point army would have a max size (to count towards army break) of 15. On that basis, you may want to keep the points to 800.

Re: Commanded Shot - proposal

Rerolls, as proposed for armour, would be for combat dice only, not Cohesion tests. To make a fair analysis you should compare like for like i.e. Average with Commanded Shot vs Superior without and not add in Generals. In this instance the rerolls will be the same for combat, but the Superiors will ...

Re: Commanded Shot - proposal

I think Bob's suggestion of reducing it to 1 Commanded Shot per 2 bases in the current list would mitigate the issue. It would still allow the Swedes to have 4 BGs protected which should be enough for most purposes.
