Naval

Having had some buccaneers bring a ship which they only got out once, only shot once, we feel that 30pts is very high. Maybe 15 would be more like it, after all they have 6" range and 2 dice. makes them slightly better than Lt Artillery w/o the range, but much easier to stay away from, and they don'...

Re: Bows

Although there where not many Bows between the armies at Way of the Warriors, we felt the reduction in short range to 3", really had very little effect to the outcomes. Also the feeling on Horse bow down to 3" means they have to get close enough to Arquebus and Carbine units to be hit back as well a...

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

If we are going to do this we will need quick replies. There may also be limited space as we will need to leave tables for club members so it may be first come first served. Will: Please could you post here the full list of people you were expecting, so we can check everyone off. So far I have comin...

Re: Proposals summary for playtesting

I wasn't actually suggesting that Bw* should have a price, just showing it as an example of how Cavalry have got a lot cheaper as they now also don't have to pay for it. Sorry if my language implied any different.

Re: Proposals summary for playtesting

I have now played two tournaments with the new amendments, 3 games of ecw and 5 of Indian. My thoughts are: 2. I totally agree with the drop in price for det horse, cavaliers, gendarmes, elephants. I think cavalry have dropped far too much. With the price reductions for most of the weapons they use...

Re: Proposals summary for playtesting

Came up with a couple of interesting scenarios over the weekend, both dealing with Artillery. Cavalry charge into troops supporting artillery during the impact, rout them, and the cavalry stop on the guns having taken them and routed their supporters 1) Can the cavalry be shot at by other troops, du...

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

Not completely useless, as at long range they only hit on 5-6, but I do get your point. Will see how Tandoori does this weekend at campaign. The only other + is Sushi are generally Superior so pass more tests. Could leave the Hvy Armour at home and take another Ashigaru. As with new armor rules woul...

Re: Proposals summary for playtesting

Yes they can. If you have more than one piece of terrain that could hide dragoons, Plantation, Enclosed Fields, Woods, Village, Gully (May not be exclusive list) you could put ambush markers in up to three spots and mark down which one really has the dragoons. With respect to the madaxmans comments,...

Re: Proposals summary for playtesting

Ok got Ray's Just Stephen Stead to reply, despite promising to do it yesterday.

Re: Proposals summary for playtesting

The play test went well at Oxford, I put out a questionnaire covering most of the changes, two guys insisted on taking it home (Ray, Stephen), I have collated the other answers and with theirs we will have 18, so hopefully they will get back to me ASAP so I can post the results.

Re: Proposals summary for playtesting

We have been playing the new amendment list, one is bows have a 3" short range, one question that came up is when mtd fire bows at 4" how many shoot, is it 1 per 2 for Cav and 1 per 3 for LH or something else.

Then what do mtd Bw* do at 4"

Re: Campaign 2017 May 6/7th Milton Keynes Team event

I will still come with an Indian themed army. Loads of nellies :)

Just remember the current army list creator (Beta 2) has nellies at 25 not 20. So for every set of 2 you get 10 extra points. But three get 1 free. :D
