Yes, I have looked at Eureka also, but have read that they are for an earlier period, more 13th century. Is that correct? Chris Rivers Some are, some aren't... they have (effectively) two ranges. The later are actually post FoG period, but you can subtract the Sashimono if you want to stay 'in peri...

That is correct, but I would think you would have an advantage elsewhere since the costs are significantly different. (The Bushi are 60 pts, the legionaries are 84 pts.) Chris R. Yes, but I feel that the 'advantage elsewhere' is going to be gobbled up by severely outnumbered Legions cutting through...

Statistical Analysis

Hi All, Anyone can do a quick analysis of Bushi with Followers vs Superior Legionaries in brush? I'm not good at Stats, so I'll give my low down, and anyone else can help I'd appreciate it: 1 - MF/Armoured/Undrilled/Average/Bw*/Heavy Weapon 2 - HF/Armoured/Drilled/Superior/-/Impact Foot/Skilled Swor...

Re: Empires of the Dragon basing!!!!!!!!!!!

Sergio, Whilst I sympathise with you feeling a need to rebase, I have to stand up for what I believe. I think that Phil Barker has done the wrong thing in trying to keep things 'the way they were' for too long. His approach has been one of 'don't for the love of mercy change base sizes or the number...

Re: Late 15th Century Samurai

I am looking at making a late 15th century samurai army. What should I be looking for in the miniatures in regards to equipment (armor, sashimonos?) I know Essex, 2 dragons, Peter Pig and Old Glory make them which would be more appropriate for this period? Thanks in advance, Chris Rivers I posted t...

Re: Defensive Spearmen, what are they good for???

I do feel defensive spear are hard done to at impact against those with no impact POA's. Phil, I agree with you. I think that Defensive Spearmen should count as no POA if charging shock or Elephants, but count as offensive spearmen if charging non shock or being charged. I believe it would be simpl...

Thanks it's clear as mud now. No seriously I get it if any part of the MF is in the open then it is counted as in the open for the cohesion test, correct. and damn good too. no more of this "toe in the rough" bulldust you used to get in DBM. Actually, I didn't mind this in DBM. Since it was an 'ele...

I would say your BG P should pursue R up to table border and not change objective directing toward enemy camp. Looting enemy camp it seems to be a voluntary action (you do it with a move in manoeuvre phase) and not the result of a mandatory movement as pursuing. Ahh, but as happened in a recent gam...

Good site, however the one's I've seen in historical documents are about half that size. The ones shown there are more seige sized pavises.

One could still argue the merits of this - even terrain that hasn't been explored could be seen as scary to cavalry marching past it so why penalise me for a table edge? But let's accept the argument for a side edge - but how does this justify a flank march being penalised or when you are running a...

I love this rule. As Nik said, there is no edge of the real world. In my experience, too many players are happy to use the edge of the table to protect their flanks. That too has no real world equivalent. Whilst it is true there is no 'edge of the world' in reality, there is also an overwhealming e...

I know this may sound like going overboard, but have you considered 10mm? I fancy 10mm quite a bit. It is kind of a cross between the 'have reasonable detail' of the 15mm and the no detail but heaps fast to paint of the 6mm. Old Glory and Magister Militum have a good range for Crusades too.
