Re: Cities of Gold

Surely some of these aren't armies at all but are brands of chocolate bars. I saw about a week ago that this became available for pre order on Book Depository (about 140 days to go). Is there a list of the armies contained somewhere? ARAWAK CARIB AZTEC TRIPLE ALLIANCE ALLIES CENTRAL AMERICAN ALLIES ...

FoG on the Thames

I have a strong feeling that a 'Marston Moor' type option for Imperials with Poles ( or vice versa)will prove very popular indeed.

Starter Armies etc

Several questions prior to a first game on Saturday.

1) Approximately how many points are the starter armies?

2) If playing a smaller than the standard 800 or so points should we reduce the tabel size or the maximum amount of terrain?

I am planning to rescue a never used Williamite DBRarmy from the recesses of my Tardis like cupboard.

I am guessing that in FoG it will largely consist of shot heavy pike and shot units and determined horse?

However:

Lancers and Baggage

Two questions:

1) Do lance armed cavalry count as impact horse or something different?

2) Will I need to organise a baggage camps for my various soon to be FoG-R armies?

Ottoman Turks

Just a quick query.

I have just been offered 16 bases of musket armed Janissaries at a semi-bargain price; would that be too many for a mid to late Ottoman Turk army.

Means more BGs in the army This is, unfortunately IMO, a bit too important. I, too, wonder if there is a better way to deal with army breaks that does not favor gimmicky filler BGs. To be sure, filler issues are not nearly as bad in FoG as they were in DBM (IMO), but the marginal value of cheap sma...
