Fleeing Units Removal of Discouraged Markers

We had a few games of SwordPoint at our club now and gradually getting the hang of the rule-set. One quandary keeps cropping up though and that is the removal of discouraged markers in the Initial Phase. The QRS and the rules both state: - 'Remove Discouraged markers from units not in combat or flee...

Re: Shooting and combined formations

Ah but... I've just read in the SwordPoint living FAQ this question and answer: - Q. How are combined units based? For example, if I have a unit of 8 late roman legionaries in a combined formation with half archers, do all the bases have two legionaries at the front and two archers behind them? Also...

Re: Shooting and combined formations

You can't have a unit made up of 6 mixed bases. It must be: 3 spear and 3 mixed, =25% archers; or 3 spear and 3 bow, representing 50% archers; or 3 mixed and 3 bow, representing 75% archers (depending on what the army list allows). See above for the dice generated. Ahh - gotcha! So, you don't need ...

Re: Shooting and combined formations

If they are shooting they will not get the benefit of the shield to save against incoming shots would be one disadvantage of having every base mixed. That was one of my initial thoughts too but then I reckoned that the archers would be shooting from behind the spearmen on the mixed archer/spearmen ...

Re: Shooting and combined formations

We have just played the first SwordPoint Crusades game at our club. A few (cough) questions cropped up but we managed to come up with answers that at least allowed the game to continue to a satisfactory conclusion. Ploughing through the rulebook today (as you do on a Sunday morning!), it occurred to...

Re: Wars of the Roses English

Thanks for that Martin. I thought it might be a typo. Not convinced about the buckler being as good as a 'proper' shield though but I have yet to play the rules to see how it all pans out. I must admit I am quite impressed with the mechanics and concepts behind the design of this rule-system as a wh...

Wars of the Roses English

I have just bought the Swordpoint rules and medieval lists having been impressed with what I've seen of the rule-set online. Not had a chance to play a game yet though. I have quite a large 28mm WotR collection which I hope will work OK with the Swordpoint rules. I notice in the Medieval army list f...
