Fight impact Assuming the LH hang on in there they can expand 1 element width to form an overlap. The bowmen (assuming they are not contacted elsewhere) can mov...

Sorry to get technical :cry: Statistically the distribution curve for the larger unit (assuming its fighting with all possible elements) is wider and flatter than that for a small unit. Therefore its probability of a fluke, extremely bad or extremely good, result is much lower than a smaller unit (i...

Personally I still don't think any of the contributors have it right!

Any scoring system should start with prime numbers, add a dash of infinititis, divide this by relatavistic theory and mutiply the coefficient by the the speed of light in an alternative universe. 8)

Irondog I have both Mongols and Samurai in 15mm at that scale you are going to have a hard time of it in 25mm you need to fill the board edge to edge and keep moving forward (without taking shooty losses) until the Mongols have no room left to run away and commit to melee.

My view is leave well enough alone.
The current system is simple (this helps) and by deploying in 1/4's somewhat represents the commanders choices.
If one wants to replicate a more complicated process then that is between consenting adults and should be kept indoors.

Re: What does "Single Line" mean

In the army books in the back it says that only one unit can be used per single line unless stated in the army design notes. Does that mean by line divisions on the far left? In other words by name? So if "Warriors" is the name on the left and it shows Medium foot, average/poor, drilled/undrilled, ...
