Re: Arty Tests for Charge but no Inf 2MU??

if charged by cavalry does it take a test for being in the open first?

Re: routing units

Think you have it mixed up, steady can't move through routers, but routers will burst through friends if they can't shift to avoid.

Re: Battle of Marengo

Alas I can't find the link. I think it was Brett who had posted the maps and scenarios from a tournament they ran a year or 2 ago down in Australia. I can't find the links or original post.

Re: defensive fire and intercept

A successful intercept ends with the charging unit in contact with the interceptors, therefore you can not shoot at them. Aside from the rule noted above.

Re: Fighting in terrain

we had a similar situation a few years ago. If I recall correctly Terry stated that you would fight the part of the unit out in the open so the fight would count as fighting in clear. However the unit in the terrain would still count as being disordered by the terrain. Best to be fully in or fully o...

Re: British army in Portugal

never actually played British but I have found that I prefer to use a skilled corps commander at least. The problem you will have is that he can either move or give away his 1 point. No help if it is to a command that is too far away. You might want to consider keeping your divisions as small as you...

Re: Wurttemberg Garderegiment zu Pferd (Garde du Corps)

A sculptor friend of mine heats up the figures under a reading lamp, probably a 40 watt bulb. The heated metal will adhere to the green stuff better than working on cold. It can also be used to "bake" the green stuff onto the figures after you have finished working with it. Green stuff can also be s...

Re: unreformed with SK attachments

I buy them for my Austrians all the time and no attachments never get a re roll, regardless of what their parent units training is.
Nice thing about Austria is you can buy the Rifle armed attachments which only lose 1 die versus cavalry. We had 1 game where Austria was out shooting the French at 6MU.

Re: Use of PIPs and Commander quality

I've even looked at the Prussians at Auerstadt, and the list doesn't seem able to make historical orbats either. Not really that bothered by it, but interesting none-the-less. The authors have often said that historical orbats take precedence over the lists. The lists are an attempt at making a "no...

Re: PanzerCorps Team Developer???

Thanks Terry. Looking forward to your 1.5 updates. As for rules a few years ago Blathergut and I played 3 other Nappy rule sets at a local convention, we both thought FOGN was the best and have never had a desire to switch rules.
A bit of FOG snobbery but I like these rules best :)

Re: The Battle of Pilgram-Lomnitz.

Don't feel too bad, I have tried this one multiple times without success. As you said things look up then a trio fails and defeat is grabbed from the jaws of victory. Good write up and better luck next time.

Re: Wurttemberg Garderegiment zu Pferd (Garde du Corps)

easy way to keep it from sticking is to dip your tool in water. Water will keep it from sticking, then it should stick to your figure and release from the tool. I have used it before and also was told that is how the sculptors do it by a sculptor so he should know.

Re: empty buildings contest

I guess if blocked they move back as far as possible, try to end not touching the building thats all. You would have to charge it regardless to try and kick your quick footed sneaky opponent out.

Re: empty buildings contest

looks like the winning response is the lucky unit that passed their CMT get into the building and get to snub their noses and taunt their slower and less lucky with CMT's enemy from the safety of being within the building.
