Topic: 25mm tips

Views: 588

In Australia our 25mm comps have all been played with 1MU = 1 inch. This gives the opportunity to redeploy. Comps have all been on 6 x 4 tables with either 600 or 650 points. Opinion is divided but I prefer 600. It does make for a different game dynamic in that wheeling is not as effective and comma...

I like a scoring system that rewards aggressive play, where relatively fewer points are earned for a draw. The warrior scoring system is very good in this regard. There are 3 points awarded based upon the number of points of troops killed/off table/shaken (the warrior equivalent of fragmented). The...

Richard, I am very pleased to see you post in this thread and show your opinion that nothing really needs changing. I have been watching this thread with some horror and hoping that the rule writers would not be unduly influenced by it. I do not run LH armies myself but that is simply personal prefe...

Re: First game...

2. The battle of my allied cav v the Elephants. We only had one base each in contact and in three turns nothing really happened. It seemed strange that Cavalry were little affected by the big beasts? Maybe it was just our rolling...? I agree about cav vs Elephants. It is the only POA that I don't l...

FWIW I think the terrain system for FoG is a real plus. I agree. Whether I like the final terrain layout or not I always feel as though I had a chance to influence the shape of the battlefield. And that is where the fun lies, IMHO. Marc Well said. We all feel a little agrieved when we don't get the...

You're right. It's a conspiracy. We may have lost the Autumn Rugby International and the Ashes but we are going to make damned sure we win the FOG Publication Date Wars. I'd stay and say more but I'm due to attend an open-topped bus parade through London for Slitherine and Osprey to celebrate our v...

Dried frog pills needed there I think :shock: Well Nik, I hope you feel really clever with your "witty" retort. I would like to state that I love FOG and have bought the rules and all lists so far. After over 30 years of gaming, FOG has re-vitalised me as an ancients gamer. My complaint I believe i...

I think this game can be summed up fairly easily. I got my Longbowmen into the wrong position and had to fight pike and dismounted knights earlier than I expected. As often happens for me, luck intervened on my side and the Longbowmen came through to save the day :D

Marty, Lance armed troops only have one job on the field.....to hit things. If you don't want them to charge keep them away from the action. Lance get the bonus of being advantaged at initial impact over Light spear and other cav. Winning the first fight can be critical and is a good thing. I was un...

Drilled vs undrilled skirmishers

I am probably missing something obvious but I cannot find any difference in the rules between drilled and undrilled skirmishers. Drilled cost an extra point so I assume there should be.

Good to see you have gone for the Lorraine Allies. Duke Rene is the kind of colourful scumbag who really enhances using the Swiss :D
