That would mean splitting Swords and Scimitars up, which is doable I guess, just something most people seem to be against so far. Thats why we have the discussions though.

That seems to be the general idea Nik, we just wanted to make sure the periods were fairly evenly matched as in period as possible.

I have played both Bosporan, and now Seljuk Turk, with Cav Lancers aplenty. Having said that, there is one HUGE advantage to the Cav over the Knights/Cats, and that is mobility. You cant turn 90 and move with undrilled Knights or Cats, but you can with Cav. Cav moves 5, so can double move for 10 for...

Reforming?

Question; Can a unit in an odd formation reform in your opponents movement phase? I charge a unit in the flank that turns only 1 base to face me. Then in the movement phase, his unit is in an odd formation, however, to reform facing my unit, he would CREATE an overlap against me. The rules say you m...

I agree with John, great event, and run very smoothly. The payback for the New Orleans massacre was handed out by the SMAC crew vehemently. That puts us at 1-1 in events, anyone got the head to head totals for games won lost drawn? If not, I will look it up. Thanks for the good time guys, was a blas...

1. Yes. 2. No. You fight against the enemy in frontal contact. Only if there is no frontal contact you check overlaps. So all the dice of C MUST be used against A. 3. One and a half dice against each group. Fractions are kept, so if you get another one and a half shooting dice from some other group...

1)yes as the BG is in melee as overlapping the enemy Bg 2)as the melee is per base so 2 bases of C battle against 2 bases of A,and 2 bases of C battle vs 2 of B the general can join the melee and get the advantage. 3)1 dice on B one on C as the target is the most in front and the shooting is per ba...

It was a winning draw for the Greeks sadly. We were playing a 3.5 hour game to simulate tournament rounds, so even though there were a lot of undecided battles, we stopped at the agreed time. I think he had one more point than I did when the game ended, so a very close match. Pike are pretty good in...

Nope, in fact, just so everyone is clear. I really like FoG. I just came home from playing my Santa Hermandad Nueva Castillian vs a Later Macedonian army. Fun stuff.

FoG plays quite differently from Warhammer and from Warhammer Ancients. A premium is placed on tactics and maneuvering your forces into advantageous positions and concntrating force on points of enemy weakness. Flanks and rear are vulnerable to attacks, so each side tries to guard the flanks and re...

What ive found is that instead of turning your flank completely to the chargers to be, you just turn the line so they can still only contact the front of your BG, but you are MOSTLY facing a direction that you would run 90ish degrees away from them and still get clean away. Hope that was clear as mu...

Wow, just wow. This really might be the most well written ruleset ive seen in years. That means in fact, that it cannot pivot and shoot either, just like heavy artillery. Wow.


Thanks a ton for the reply, I've only had the rulebook about a week or so now, so still searching things out.

Within.....

Ok, I know Mark was going to post this, but im impetuous ;) so I have to go ahead and do it. In a recent game, one player double moved and then in the shooting phase, fired his light artillery. I couldnt find anything in the rules to prevent this, however, it brings up an interesting point. The move...

Contraction before Impact, then expand?

Quick question. A tactic that has recently come up when facing a better troop type in the impact phase, is to contract into a column, then charge/be charged. Then, when the melee phase occurs, you expand to match the enemy frontage because your troops have a better POA in melee. Its funny to watch a...

I was part of this battle, and Im not sure we lined C up properly from memory. Either way, that is good to remember.


The part that now confuses me, is the reference that because the intercept would hit the front, the charge is not canceled? Is that correct?




Thanks,


Clay
