Wow, they are beautiful. I was considering an Later Crusader army too, or at least an ally to a Komnenan Byzantine army (If I can find decent figures for the Komnenans). Say, you look familiar... ;) If you're planning on Late Crusaders, then I'll be forced to do Ayyubids - even if our armies will n...

That's nothing. I once glued myself to a tube of cyanoacrylate, and then when I tried to use the debonding stuff, I managed to glue myself to the debonder too.

Wow, I've never heard of anyone being allergic to cyanoacrylate before. Other than the kind of allergic reaction I have when I glue my fingers together ;-) That's nothing.

Maybe just push it with your little finger?
Not if it's glued to the table. :p

Re: some newb questions

Second, we both want to start small. Does Field of Glory allow for small "warband" type size games, or in other game systems something along the lines of 500 points (with 1500-2000 being the standard)? Someone on one of the yahoo groups has suggested a 'mini-FoG' with 400 points used rather than th...

I'm somewhat confused after reading this thread. Costs of stakes 3 points ber element in the BG is what I had assumed, the starter armies are also pointed this way. The thread talks of 3 points for each 2 elements Longbow get 1 set of stakes per 2 bases of longbow, not one for each base. If you loo...

My current favourites are those supplied by 50 Paces - grained plastic, with either metal or magnetic bottoms. They're pretty cheap too, and the last time I ordered stuff from them, they threw in a few extras and a sample of some of their other figures.

You're not the only one - there's obviously a bias against South Yorkshiremen.

I toyed with the idea of a Yorkist WOTR army (I'm from Yorkshire), but settled on an English HYW army (I'm a PhD student of medieval studies, centred on the Angevin / Plantagenet 'empire', though not a military historian, I hasten to add). You may know that the Lancastrian cause was particularly st...

Books 8+?

We already have 3 army list books out, and we know what 4-7 are going to be. We also know that there's a Dark Ages book and a Biblical book being discussed for next year. Do we yet know what book 8, 9 and 10 etc will be? Is book 8 the Dark Ages one, for example, or Biblical, or something else entire...

I've been taking them as portable defences = fortifications (p 129), and the chart on p. 126 says 40 x 15mm for fortifications.

Commander Basing

In SoA, HYW English (Cont) have commanders based as Men At Arms - does his mean you have to use the basing depth for HF, or can you use a 40mm square with a little diorama instead? Can you use mounted figures, though there aren't really any in the list, since the MAA are dismounted?
