Target Priority Q2: Most Directly to Front

What exactly do you mean by "most directly to front" in the Target priority section, I'm having a hard time figuring it out....

Target Priority Q1: Target Priority and "swing" fi

The flank file of a unit with shooting has equal target priority to two different units in front. The third bullet in the target selection page indicates you can't split bases for firing, and since all the other language seems to indicate that the the allocation is by a file of bases, does this mean...

Pursuits and Interception

Not quite sure on this one. A BG charges a unit of LF, which evades through a unit behind. The pursuers enter the zone of interception of the unit behind, but do not go far enough to make contact. Can the unit behind make an interception charge at the pursuers (as they were charging, and entered its...

Thanks for the info...

And you English!

Sadly there's no room for a beer bottle on my camp, as the stakes and impaled turks take up too much room.

Maerk, Thats a very interesting point, and seems to point to the, "that just happens to be the way it was in DBM," or a typo, oversight, or some such thing. Could I please impose on RBS, TH, or one of the other authors to weigh in on the subject, in particularly, is 120mm deep an acceptable camp dep...

Representation of Commanders

In the army list books they specify how the commanders should be represented (as men at arms, lancers, etc), but I can't seem to see any reason for this beyond historic versimmilitude, as the representation of generals would seem to have no effect on play whatsoever. Is this correct?

Thanks

And it is worth saying that Pez is from Canada, and while officially metric we remain unrepentantly Imperial.

After all there's only so many ways you can divide a centimeter, while an inch can be magically subdivided down to a gnat's todger, gnat's whisker (as we say here).

Well, I'm not sure I entirely agree. If there is a good reason (which I haven't been able to figure out) I'd like to know so I can make a new camp. On the other hand, if it is simply because thats the way it was in DBM, I won't be in such a hurry, as I have other painting/sculpting priorities. Thank...

So would it be safe to say that there is no game play reason to make the camp 160mm deep?

Dismounting Knights

Many (though not all) of the lists in Storm of Arrows allow knights to always dismount with heavy weapon. However, the main rules say knights can dismount as offensive spear, swordsmen (as they retain all capabilities, but lancers become offensive spearmen) if the opponent deploys fortifications or ...

Camp Representation

I just noticed the size requirements for the camp and was surprised to find that my old camp is no where near big enough (4 60x60 bases in 25mm). Now, I understand the 180mm wide will allow three bases to make contact in front, but I'm curious about the 160mm depth, as that doesn't correspond to a 2...

The shire horse theory has been fairly well debunked. Analysis of horse armour indicates they were in the 15-16 hands range, and other measures indicate this was a fairly consistent size at least back to the 13th century. The prevailing opinion is that the horse was stronger and stockier than we're ...
