The re-enactment comments are very interesting, and its worth pointing out to the quite agressive poster that the Saxons lost to Normans charging up that hill... Its also hard to tell this far down the line whether all 18 of those charges went straight into the Saxon lines, or whether the Normans sk...

Thanks guys!

It turns out I broke my elbow when I slipped and fell leaving the house. Fortunately I wasn't carrying my miniatures at the time!

Looking foward to playing Friday

Sorry about that...

Not sure what happened to cause 4 posts of my battle report. I had a little crash in the middle of posting that one.

Dan, I'm sorry I'm not going to be able to make Hot Lead... Our main concern here with 6x4 here in Toronto is that the board can literally be lined edge to edge with troops in 28mm. This is not such a big deal for many foot interactions, but it artificially restricts the interactions between those a...

Bosphorans vs Epirians in Toronto: First game in TO?

Its taken a bit to get this out, but here we go... Despite a fairly hefty amount of snow in Toronto last Saturday, Noel (known here as Pezhetaroi) and I got together at friend's place and took Field of Glory out for a spin. It was a typical first game, in that we made some mistakes and spent a fair ...

I ran into similar problems trying to lay HI (old glory Black Army guys) for my Wallachians. The best solution I found was to lay out all the bases in formation, then fit the guys on. I work out really well. Once you have them in place though I recommend marking the bases in some way so you know who...

Italian Condotta Questions

The Italian Condotta rivals my affections for the Wallachians, and I've been looking at the list and have a couple of questions with regards to allies: - The choice of allies doesn't come with an ally commander choice. Does this mean that the minimum sized BGs from the city-specific lists can be com...

Thanks. Is there a reference for this in the rules? I could only find the second moves rule with respect to a battle group with a commander, not a solo commander.

Thanks for the comments. I'll be trying it both ways over the coming months before fatherhood reducing playing time, and come back to it. My main concern was that the narrow width of the table allows a foot army on the steps to line the table from edge to edge, which leaves only flank marches as a m...

There are some great examples to back this up.

Moving Commanders in the Joint action Phase

My final question from yesterday. If both players want to move commanders in the Joint Action phase, is there a sequence, alternating or otherwise in which this should be done? It seems like it is quite possible for some "oh you moved him there, I guess I'll move my guy there" stuff...

Commanders and Double Moves

Another question from yesterday's game. A unit with a commander can make a second move in the maneuever phase as long as its more than 6" from the enemy etc... Can a commander who is not currently with a unit make a second move as long as he meets the same criteria? We decided yes, but would like to...

Post-game comments

Hello all, My friend Noel and I played a lovely game yesterday, and after having a little time to mull over the events, review the rules to see where we'd made mistakes or failed to find a rule in a timely fashion, I have a few comments, criticisms, and what not. First off, we had a great time. Noel...

MU/Board size in 28mm

After playing with the 1" MU in 28mm, I have to say that the size of the board seems too small, and ranges/moves too short. I'm wondering how many people play their 28mm games with the 40mm MU on 8x5 boards as I've seen discussed on the US mailing list. It seems like it will make for a slightly more...
