I look forward to the results of the discussions and of course to seeing what happens when you clever types get to grips with these proposed changes.

Re: What armies etc does it contain?

;) Well spotted Bob! The book contains revised and extended armies for the wars of Alexander and his Successors down to the arrival of the Romans (who are dealt with in a later volume).

Re: Swindon Event February 2019

Arcs of vision have not changed, other than the way the "command point" at centre front views things. Bases would still check for own visibility as in your diagram. Yo are correct re shooting at unit B (same diagram as Bob's actually).

Re: Swindon Event February 2019

All lists now checked and correct, there are 20 players. Most popular army is Seleucid (4) followed by Pontic (3) and EIR (3). In all there are 9 pike armies, 2 cataphract armies and 3 "barbarian" armies in the mix. The rest are 1 Chinese, 4 Roman and 1 Persian.

Re: Swindon Event February 2019

As all bases now shoot at all targets, the option to switch to a secondary target no longer exists.
The factors relating to the shooting attempt are not relevant to target selection

Re: Swindon Event February 2019

There will be an extra rule change tested at the event, as follows: A unit may only shoot if its centre front can see the target unit. All missile-armed bases in the unit will then shoot even if some bases cannot see the target. A unit’s entire frontage must be able to see the entire target for shoo...
