Re: Amendments to Shooting rules etc

p13 shooting.
Very often to shoot at an elephant you have to fire over your own troops and enemy troops as well. Should the elephant be counted as obscured ? It might help to compensate for how easily they fail their stampede test.

Re: Darius the not so great.

Thanks Martin. I've been away so have only now seen your response. Somehow I overlooked his defence value. Just to clarify, "Darius moves as a heavy chariot." Do you mean that he can move up to 12" in any direction (as a commander) but with chariot terrain restrictions, or that he has all of the mov...

Darius the not so great.

Can his +3 cohesion bonus be used to raise a units leadership value above 9 ? O.k, so sooner or later he will end-up in combat. What is his defence value? Chariot plus light armour = 4 perhaps ? Is he a superior fighter ? Is he a formed unit ? Can he be charged at by skirmishers ? Can he counter-cha...

"Used to chariots" token.

It might be easy to lose track of which units have taken a test for being charged by chariots. My rough idea is to place a token beside each unit that may have to take a cohesion test when charged by chariots and then remove the token if the test is passed. I was originally planning to use tokens wi...

Re: Chariot follow-on charge on revealed enemy

I don't mind which way the decision goes but I'd like a definitive answer before our first chariot game on Wednesday night. The elephant might not be a good example because its approach can be seen over the heads of the evading skirmishers. Perhaps a closer comparison would be if the evading skirmis...

Chariot follow-on charge on revealed enemy

A unit of chariots (with the shock-cavalry rule) charges at a line of skirmishers. The skirmishers successfully evade but reveal a formed infantry unit which is in the charge-path and range of the charging chariots. The infantry would not usually have time to react to a follow-on charge. So, do they...

Re: routed unit

Is this still seen as correct?
Not everybody seems to be aware of it and I've never seen it in an errata.
