Re: Forced charge through charging Troops

Shock troops will not charge through other shock troops or troops "already" in melee p. 63. Quotations are mine. So even if you choose to send the non-shock troops in first, the shock will still charge through them as they are not "already" in melee.

Maybe not the intent.

Eastern Orthodox Priest

Anyone know where I might find a 15mm figure that would work for an Eastern Orthodox priest around 1100 ad? Hoping I can find something close so that I will not have to try converting a figure. I need one for a campaign marker.

Re: The future of FOG-AM competitions...

I think we've all been too complacent in accepting 800 points on 6 x 4 tables. Smaller tables and a different number of points can give better games. I also think that themed events are more challenging. Open events can produce horrible mis-matches - but Martyn gives a good rationale as to why open...
