Shooting questions

Three questions: 1. Cannons have no listed short range. Does this mean, they always get the -1 to hit penalty for longe range? (we played it this way) 2. Can a unit on a hill be shot at by another unit on ground level, which has to fire through another (friendly) unit on ground level? 3. Can a unit ...

Re: pike block

A practicability questiom arose during our game this weekend: I use 9 bases pike blocks, whose front ranks have levelled pikes (for an authentic attack look). Because of these it is impossible to make proper base contact during charges. How could this be solved? 1. option: I proxied some bases under...

Re: Later Italian City States

Thanks, I would really appreciate you considering my suggestions. The remark with the Allies is not that much of a concern, I was just wondering about it while reading. The Heavy Infantry with shields and especially the foot bowmen are of more importance to me, as I own these nice models from Perry ...

Later Italian City States

I have been tinkering with the Later Italian City States Army List and some questions arose: 1. Where is the inclusion of the famous Carrocios? Maybe they could give a cohesion bonus and/or provide a defensive platform for missile troops? 2. Perry produce nice Italian Heavy Infantry with Halberds an...

Re: Burgundian Ordnance questions

I didn't see that either, but you seem to be right. IMHO it should be D4 (Partial Plate 5 + Mounted -1 =4). @MartinG I agree with your point to differentiate the Burgundian Feudal Knights from the Imperials. With your suggestions there are also more ways of customizing these to your own intention. I...

Re: Burgundian Ordnance questions

Thanks for the suggestions. I think they are al very viable. But I think my original option would be best in spirit with the other lists. I was looking at the Late HRE and Imperial lists, where it states: "Knights can have Spear (+1) or Lances (+5) or nothing. Knights with Lances are Shock Cavalry, ...

Re: Burgundian Ordnance questions

Another suggestion: In his chronicle Phillip de Comines comments on the Burgundian Feudal Knights not being proficient in the proper usage of Lances, due to the long period of peace. Therefore I propose the following addition, waiting for (official) approval: Feudal Knights may be fielded without La...

Calcutating Skirmisher points reduction

When calcutating the points reduction for some skirmishers (without other clarification), is the result rounded up or down?

Example: Later HRE Landsknecht Crossbowmen in Open Order cost 14 points, but can be fielded as skirmishers at 33% points reduction. Would that be 9 or 10 points per base then?

Barding

There seems to be some ambiguous wording concerning barding and clarification would be nice. The general distinction between cloth-, half- and full-barding is clear. But in some Medieval lists (Swiss, Italians, Late HRE, Late French, Burgundy,...) it only says that knights have "barding", sometimes ...
