Re: Prussian Army 1806-07 Adaptations

I have been pondering the same sorts of issue with reference to the 1809 Austrian lists. With the exception of Nordmann, its pretty hard to find any Austrian Corps or Divisional commander who managed to be much better than competent - and often barely at that. So a historically accurate Austrian lis...

Re: Prussian Army 1806-07 Adaptations

I think part of the 06-07 Prussians and Russians. (possibly 05 Austrians and Russians) need to better reflect their command and control handicaps. I think it was a real lost opportunity to not reflect these better. It looks like we'll have a chance to revisit the lists after v2 comes out. - all sho...

Re: FOG N 2nd Edition - it's back!

Hi Shadow Thanks for taking the time to set your views out in detail. It's great to see reasoned argument. There's been a lot of discussion on how/whether to make any changes to how artillery organisation is structured in v2 - with differing viewpoints on the matter. It's safe to say that whatever c...

Re: FOG N 2nd Edition - it's back!

On the artillery thing, it's a result of focusing on what an artillery unit represents. We have attachments to largely represent supporting divisional artillery and artillery units to represent massed or position artillery formations (of 2-3 batteries). These position artillery were usually corps re...

Re: FOG N 2nd Edition - it's back!

"Cav effect on shooting ,-1 dice reduced from -2 dice " and how this is going to impact on the use of Rifles in the game?. This rule doesn't actually effect rifle attachments at all. They remain exactly the same as in v1. A rifle attachment adds a dice for shooting and loses 1 dice if enemy cav are...

Re: crazy command idea

Interesting idea Bada.
I suspect it may be a change too radical, & would involve looking at the non-phasing shooting but perhaps if/when you have a chance you could play a game trailing your idea?

Cheers

But plenty to do (some of which will be outside of our control) and a first quarter 2017 release is probably unre...

Re: 1809 Saxon Doom!

Sorry, badly written by me. Blather is right in deciphering my scribbles. In game terms, 4 hits on your large unit will deny you returning fire at close range by driving you back to 3mu. But if you backstop your unit, your opponent will now need to hit you 5 times (forcing an outcome move) to preven...

Re: 1809 Saxon Doom!

That's a standard tactic for my Austrians. Large units of unreformed (veterans if you can get them) with a gun attachment. Advance to close range and hope you don't take 4 (drops to 3) hits which would drive you back out of close range. Don't bother to CMT to close and unload with 8 dice, or 6 if di...

Re: House Rules

Hi I am happy to send you (or anyone) a copy of the amendments & clarifications we use, both for club games and for tournaments. Not sure quite how to put a link to them here, but maybe we can link to them from our club website (being a tech moron, I'm not sure if this is possible or not). - Philip/...

Re: funny situation

I believe that Terry has clarified that 'retire to 3mu' means 3mu from all enemy.
Personally I think this often leads to funny situations and slides, and it should be as you played it, just retire to 3mu from the cause of the retirement.

Re: British army in Portugal

Ditto Pugs.
As many artillery and rifle attachments as you are allowed, small superior units, large average units.

I wouldn't take a L2 CC though, attached L1's are all you need if playing the rules as currently written.

Re: Question from a New Player

You can absolutely field a cavalry corps at 800 points - although it would need at least an attached infantry division and as many artillery batteries as you can get, to be a competitive list IMO. Even then, I think a cavalry corps would really struggle against good opponents who field infantry form...

My view - still be 2 deep after the turn. (you are doing a facing change, not a formation change).

I believe that 'no free pips' is being considered by Terry for version 1.5. We also used an amendment to exceptional commanders: CCs don't get the re-roll rally attempts, but exceptional DCs still do. reasoning, - L3 CC's are pretty good value under a pip stressed environment and don't need anything...
