I agree to maximise the hits per bases for a BG you are encouraged to spread out into more files. If the fight is in a line of Barbarian BG’s against a line of Roman BG’s it just gives the Romans more dice to hit the same Barbarian BG at (++) if it deploys thinly. I don’t know the percentages but th...

Thought it would have been discussed, but there doesn’t seem an answer yet. ----- Still think its tuff on a 10 base BG of Barbarian foot in 2 files 5 ranks deep fighting a 4 base BG of Romans 2 ranks deep. No benefit for numbers. There must be an answer rather then taking away the skilled sword fact...

Roman v Barbarian Foot - Combat Factors

Weight of Numbers Romans fighting on ++ makes it hard for Barbarian foot to win in a straight fight when the Barbarians have larger numbers but no overlaps. I believe Romans deserve armour and the skilled sword factor. Barbarian foot get no benefit from weight of numbers when they have no overlaps....

Measuring Sticks & Retractable Tape Measures

What’s the view on using a retractable tape measure
to measure movement in a competition?

Personally I use the metal sticks.

It seems hard to judge if a move is correct when measured
by a retractable tape measure which is held 2-3 inches off the table.

Everyone took the competition game.
This seems a good offer if there is a umpire with time.
At least you get a game, which is what I would be there for.

As far as I can tell no bye system is perfect. The Warfare one is 'different' How do other competitions handle byes does anyone know? Don’t BHGS have a standard system for scores and byes for ranked competitions? Basing the score on one game does seem to have given some extremes at Warfare. It seem...

For any non Excel people.... An option for anyone who wants to view the whole width of the spreadsheet (Army List) is to use the VIEW custom setting. Select - VIEW - ZOOM - CUSTOM from the menu. Set it to about between 63%-65% and you can view the whole width of the army list. The text does get smal...

I also have a second column that identifies which batch each unit is in - 1st 2nd 3 4, but this is pure chrome. Moving entries and resorting them according to deployment order is a little problematic, but maybe that is unavoidable. The latest version of Olivier’s spreadsheet has the auto filter alr...

It may be an idea to include the version number.
Sometimes the latest version is not always obvious as the design may not change.

A new version : 3.0.6 Better and more beautifull :wink: Also, I found the default setting for printing made it too small on landscape, I cleared the print area, reset font sizes to 12, increased some colum sizes and then hid a few rows to keep it to one sheet. Steve P I'm sure you know this but for...
