Re: NZ Natcon 2014

There were several enquiries about FOG-N from players in other parts of the country, but that didn't convert into entries for the tournament. Still, it will be a good opportunity to show off the game at the Nationals!

Re: Charging question from Cold Wars

The moving unit may slide sideways as part of its move to avoid friends, instead of wheeling. Page 38, right hand column, 3rd bullet point.

Dust-up in Belgium

I had an interesting game at the club today played using a Flames of War scenario, "Dust-up". My opponent Shaun felt that the standard attack/defence game was getting stale, so suggested using a scenario to generate other sorts of battles. For those who are unfamiliar with the FOW dust-up scenario (...

Re: Idea for Corps Commanders

if you want an easy way to consume more CPs, then simply require a CP (with no CMT required) to move any unit that is out of command. It will give a better historic feel of units needing to stay closer to their divisional formations, and require more careful marshalling of CPs once units spread out...

Re: 1814 Prussians vs French

Very nice pictures! Your observation about cavalry being one-shot weapons is in my opinion a nice feature of the rules. The Spent rule forces commanders to think carefully about committing cavalry. A fresh reserve can be decisive, but while spent cavalry are less effective than fresh cavalry, they a...

Re: Corps Comm. Crossing River???

The rules for waist-high and shoulder-high rivers say you must pass a CMT to cross. The CMT table on page 45 states that crossing an obstacle is a simple move for skirmishers. Page 42 (last bullet point) says "He [the commander] moves the same distance and with the same restriction as Irregular ligh...

Re: cashing in CPs for extra dice

I'm still a little cautious about this. A limit of adding one extra CP per test may be a useful thing for commanders to do, without unbalancing things too much. You still want the chance for things to go wrong sometimes! As the game progresses, units will be lost but the number of commanders stays t...

Re: Skirmishers Formation

The CMT table on page 45 has a Simple move listed for Skirmishers "crossing obstacle or entering buildings forwards or backwards" but this is inconsistent with the rules for buildings on page 76 where it says "To enter buildings all units must pass a CMT unless they are in March Column and moving al...

Re: Point revisions

At NatCon we used these two special rules for Unreformed infantry. 1. Remove the -1 dice on CTs for unreformed infantry (and British) in extended line. They should not be penalised for fighting in their preferred formation. 2. All infantry face backwards if they retire 6MU – regardless of formation....

Re: irregular Light Cavalry responding to a cavalry assault

There is also the general description of cavalry formations on page 86. "Another formation used by cavalry is that of Extended Line. This is most often used by skirmishing light or irregular light cavalry."

Re: 1 of 2 shooting queries

Option A seems to be correct, you measure between the closest points, even if those points are outside the area of fire. This means that if you want to shoot at a target without reply you must manoeuvre to get completely outside the frontal arc, rather than the cheesy move of positioning a unit at a...

Re: Battlecry 2013

Day One of the tournament was really good! We had 12 games in total, some mighty triumphs, some disasters, and I got two hard-fought draws. The Dutch-Belgian carabiniers, in whom I placed all my hopes, failed dismally. But my massed conscripts did great work and saved the army twice. The benefit of ...
