It effectively gives the initiative to the player who rolls lowest on the initiative roll, as he can decide whether the terrain goes around the edges / on the baselines, where it will have little effect, or in the middle where it can have a significant effect. This would simply cause a stalemate in ...

The current system means most terrain will be at the edges. Your system would allow a player who wants rough terrain to put a line of it down the middle of the table.

Yes but that's completely different to an equal points game. Also you might deliberatley have uneven points as a handicap to a more experienced player. But if you're playing 800 points , whether in a tournament or a "friendly" (not that most tournaments aren't !), then the 800 points should be an ab...

Going back to the original question, I think even for a friendly game it should be an absolute limit. If you are playing 800 points but are allowed to go over by 10 points then you are actually playing to a 810 point limit. If your army comes out at just over 800 points, then remove a couple of chea...

Hi, is this offer still open ? I need some more knights and crossbowmen for my crusader army. I'd probably send a small batch first to make sure I'm happy with it, then send more later. I'm in the UK but I would pay postage each way.

OK, the rules say the position and formation must be as close as possible after reforming to the position and formation before, but then it doesn't explain what this means. In a generally tightly written set of rules this is one of the loosest, most ambiguous sections in the book. If a 4 x 2 formati...

Reforming when contacted in the flank

If a BG is hit in the flank, and it is not fighting any other BG, how does it conform ? The rules say the formation should be the same as before reforming, but does this mean the same as if you turned 90 degrees. As an example, let's say a BG of infantry 4 bases wide and 2 deep is hit in the flank. ...

Feedback from first games of FoG

I played my first two games at the Manchester comp yesterday, with Late Republican Romans. My initial reaction is very positive. The rules are well written and easy to understand, and seem to give a good game. A couple of rules points came up. Hammy has already mentioned one of them - my cavalry cha...
