Re: Skirmishers in melee with elephants / formed units

a way to counter he elephant would be a unit of skirmishers in front of another unit of quality skirmishers. the front unit gets close to the elephant and begins shooting... if charged by the elephant it evades through it's support, who cannot evade ( page 19, 4.7 final sentence). Since the supports...

Re: Burgundian Ordnance questions

I saw that mounted retainers are D3. I assume this is a typo and should be D4?

Re: Parthian Shot with Javelin

That's what I assumed although it's not explicit in the rules. I envisioned some numidians at 15 inches from cavalry claiming parthian shot and being able to shoot javelins without ever being in 6 inch range.

Parthian Shot with Javelin

Hello,

Should he be Nervous?

I fought a game the other night and a situation arose at the end of a battle line. It looked like the right hand end of the diagram on page 28 of the rule book. 1) Unit D confers a -1 on a battle line because of it's "proximity" to units H's flank. However, D needs to be WITHIN 1" of H to do this ( ...

Re: Late Imperial Romans ( Rule Book Pg 55)

A Lot of Gaul , Thanks for your reply. I checked "evade" on pg 43 and this refers to Formed troops. so i don't think Illyricanii can skirmish. A pity.. A few others have read the Illyricani entry and are also of the opinion that (the last sentence)... " These may have light armour (+1)........" refe...

Late Imperial Romans ( Rule Book Pg 55)

Hello, I'm reading the Illyricani cavalry portion and see that the only type that may be fielded as skirmishers are unarmoured sagitarii .
