Fortifications

There have been examples of players using fortifications merely to allow them to deploy 5MU further forward. (The extreme example was a BG of 8 Roman legionaries deployed in a 1 wide column behind fortifications), on the first turn they march out at no penalty.

This seems wrong to me.

I am not convinced by the BG of skirmishers that can hold up half an army. I would like to see the range at which skirmishers prevent second moves by a BG or battle line including non-skirmishers reduced to 2MU.

Streams

Not sure this will make the rules, but one to throw out for interest:

Stream - 1 MU wide - is good going when crossed (at 90 degrees to direction of flow) but impassable if trying to move along it. Limit the stream to a maximum of two turns of 90 degrees, at least 12 MU apart.

Disorder

I don't feel FoG quite gets the combat dice effects correct for disorder from terrain or elephants. Instead of losing dice for disorder and severe disorder; might a - POA or -- POA apply instead?

The crux of the matter is whether behind means behind with respect to the fortification or behind with respect to the direction the enemy is coming from. If the former, this allows some particularly cheesy deployments and I cannot believe this was the intention when the rules were written. I think i...

As the rules are written I think it is not a flank or rear charge as "The charging battle group starts with no part of any of its bases directly in front of any part of any base of the target battle group". (p56) From the diagram, the cavalry are partly in front of the rearmost base of the kinked co...

Magnesia, 190 BC

This battle was fought on 30th December 2009 by members of Guildford Wargames Club at our annual Xmas wargaming event. I based the armies on Phil Sabins excellent Lost Battles (Published Continuum Books 2007, ISBN 978 1 84725 187 9). We used a 10' x 4' table and 25mm figures. To match the historical...

Thanks for the responses.

Turning to flank was not an option, there was an enemy unit of spearmen to their front (although too far away to stop the column advancing).

Enough Numidians deserted to the Italian side during the Social war that the Romans sent the rest back to Numidia. You might therefore be justified to include one unit of 4 Numidian Cavalry in an Italian army.

Overlaps moving and still fighting as an overlap

Had a situation at Warfare. I had a unit of spearmen in column who were fighting as an overlap. Can they move forward in their normal movement phase and still fight as an overlap against the same unit? After their normal move some elements were still eligble to fight as an overlap. My opponent would...

Realise I did'nt explain this well

I didn't explain my last comment properly.

I realise you can't interpenetrate an Ambush marker (FAQ 5.1). What I meant was that the deployment of the ambushes can overlap (as long as they are in different turns)..

Ambush markers on top of each other

Note that as the rules are written it is perfectly possible to overlap two (or in theory all three) ambush markers. You deploy one BG in ambush in one turn, and deploy the second/third BG in ambush in a later turn(s). This however is a risky strategy as if the ambush BG cannot be legally deployed yo...

Scythed chariots providing rear support

We had an odd situation in a game yesterday. My opponent screened 2BGs of Scythed chariots with light horse.

Basing

In my Medieval army all my Heavy Foot are 3 to a base as opposed to 4. Nobody has complained. The base depth is correct (and I think that is more important). I also have the occasional (about 1 in 6) elements of Knights based 2 to a base - because they wouldn't fit 3 to a base. Again nobody has comp...

Swordsmen not Swordmen please

In the army calculator, can Swordmen be replaced with Swordsmen (which is correct English)?

I just feel that this spelling mistake detracts from what is a superb tool. Given the poor standard of my French I am impressed that the tool works in English so well.
