Re: FoG:AM v3 Lost Lists

Shouldn't the lf jls be 5 points and the lh jls 8 points in the Lydian list? Surprised none of the cavalry are elite as household guards. Yes, that’s what I got for the LF JLS - unprotected, average undrilled = 4 + javelin 1 + LS 0 = 5 But, 7 for LH: unprotected, average undrilled = 5 + javelin 1 +...

Re: 1 per 2...

Just my 2 cents / pence.... I find the Terry's explanation of the v3 sequence & definitions more logical than previous versions - and easier to remember since it never made sense to me that the death roll came after the post-combat CT since attrition is a consequence of combat. (I know there's an ar...

The Babylonians will be trying to avoid being conquered by the Persians. They won the first battle but the old Persian king died and someone called Cyrus is leading the Persians for a re-match.

The Persian army will be posted momentarily.

Re: Field of Glory 2.0.4 reader available!

I only recently acquired the FoG 2 physical book, and was thinking I might get the reader, as well, but poking around the web site it seems that it is no longer available for purchase. Is it simply discontinued and no longer available? Something to keep in mind... I have the reader on my iPad. The ...

Can anyone else see the map above? It seems that Photobucket doesn't allow 3rd party hosting (i.e., embedding images in other sites than Photobucket) unless you pay to upgrade your account. Advertising is apparently not bringing in enough revenue. I've no interest in upgrading my photobucket account...

Re: FoGN v2 Firing out of Buildings

Ha! Ha! Just a little irony in there Shadow...? :wink: What it does fix is simplifying the rules. The reason I picked it up was that only yesterday I had a fairly exerienced FOG N player ask me, "Remind me what the purpose of heavy artillery attachments is again?" And in all my playing of FOG N, I ...

Oops. Maybe need to reconsider. If v1 isn't broken why are we changing it?

Re: FoGN v2 Firing out of Buildings

We have tried to avoid fixing what isn't broken in working up the v2 changes and I think this is a good example of where we are at risk of introducing changes unnecessarily. I've chatted to Brett and we think we should stay with the early simpler proposal in this thread to allow all units that shoo...

Re: FoGN v2 Firing out of Buildings

Only firing at close range dramatically reduces the building's zone of cotrol to a point where it is easy to ignore the enemy in it This is important to my mind. While the defenders may not cause much in the way of cohesion loss at 6MU, they do have a zone of annoyance with a reasonable chance of d...

Re: FoGN v2 Firing out of Buildings

Good discussion. Will have a chat with Richard but I find Shadows' comments on large units pretty compelling. On unreformed shooting at medium range from buildings: I'm not sure that defenders being able to shoot at medium range - or not - makes much difference to building survivability. The defend...

Re: FoGN v2 Firing out of Buildings

The argument of size not mattering is that only a certain number of troops could be brought to bear on any one side of a village. Eugene at Sacile and Jerome at Waterloo are good examples of more troops not being much of an advantage. On the other hand Massena at Aspern-Essling is a good example wh...
