Re: Ch'in Chinese infantry?

My Samurai are almost done and I'm about to start on rebuilding the Ch'in army I used to run some 15 or so years ago. I know that the Warring States list gives the option to run hyper-agressive Ch'in infantry as front rank impact foot instead of the usual heavy weapon. Do they remain driled or do t...

Jin

Hello,

I see a small problem with the Jin.

Under "Optional Troops"

"Only from 1127"
"Chinese infantry in separate formations"

All up you're allowed *6-36.

Yet, if you take all of the troops you're allowed, it comes to a total of 28!!!

password

Hi All,

I'm trying to change my password, and don't seem to be able to.

I put in my current password and click on 'change password' and it gives me a 403 access denied screen.

Anyone else having this problem?

Am I doing something wrong?

Huns get steppe, but even then may lose initiative and end up in crap terrain. Winning initiative and getting crap terrain would be a big downer with 28 bases of lancers, 1 of LH and some LF, because steppe is not in your list and agricultural gets filled with enclosed fields. Yes, but what I'm say...

Re: Need some pics

Actually I recently dug through my tin mountains and came across a few packs of Tin Soldier Samurais I ordered years ago to check the range. Unless the minis changed in the decade or so that apssed since then they do lock very much like cartoon characters with impossible large heads and hands. Then...

Re: Need some pics

Anyone got any pics of tin soldier samurai range just doing a bit of reserch before i choose my range... Carl... I avoid them regardless of the pics. Tin Soldier look like garden gnomes. Actually, I don't think this is true of their Samurai range. I'd still avoid them as they are very unique lookin...

But if the army you are using does not get Steppe you are in trouble. If use of road and river together are banned I will stop using Cav lancer armies unless they have steppe. If to successfully use massed lancers you need a billiard table, the game is then totally broken. And if a lancer army cant...

When iterpenetrating in the movement phase only a BG is only placed on the far side of the BG it is interpenetrating if the front edge of the moving BG would reach the far side of the interpenetrated BG. In this case the moving BG is placed entirely on the far side of the interpenetrated BG. In any...

Did you write the rules? Could this not be a design feature so that horsey armies without steppes have a chance of getting fairly open terrain? And I have already stated that the LF rule is broken.

A BG that is interpenetrated may not move in the manouevre pahse. Similarly no BG may interpenetrate another BG that has moved in the manouevre phase. This isn't a bad suggestion, but I also suggest that you can't interpenetrate AT ALL in the first turn of the game. My reason for this is I can see ...

Just being a devils advocate here. You have a double area marsh that you want to get your knights around. You put a single line of Light Infantry into the marsh so that one part of the light infantry is outside the left hand edge and one part outside the right hand edge. The knights move to interpen...

Could we, as a FoG community, come to an understanding that "warp speed" movement is outside the pale?
