Re: Attack on the Camp Scenario

Both terrain pieces are still WIP, they need painting and I am waiting for some 10mm buildings to arrive. But when they are finished, I will gladly post some photos of them here.

Re: Artillery in Line of Battle?

Does this also apply to Organ Guns, who can stand against charges as well? I was thinking of a situation, where the artillery is positioned next to infantry, but out of enemy charge range due to depth, e.g. Cannon next to a pike block. If the Massed Pikes are charged, do they count the cannon as par...

Re: Attack on the Camp Scenario

Thanks,

As I have already build an 12" square camp (and village, too), option one is not viable for me, but option two seems like a good idea and also has a nice flavour.

Terrain interference fall back/counter-charge

Does difficult terrain reduce movement in the fall back and cavalry counter-charge moves?

Attack on the Camp Scenario

Played this scenario yesterday and an important qestion came up: The defender has to deploy this army in the camp. As it is nearly impossible to fit a whole 650p (or 800p as we played medieval) army into a 12" square, where does he deploy the rest? 1. Anywhere in his table half (probably 6" from the...

Artillery in Line of Battle?

Maybe a stupid question, but I couldn't figure it out and I have a game tomorrow, where this might be an issue:

Does Artillery/Cannons take part in the Line of Battle?

e.g. does a close order unit standing next to a cannon count it as "in Line of Battle" to mitigate the combat result or not?

Re: Later Italian City States

Thank you very, very much for the amendments. I think these are really good solutions to field the nice Perry miniatures and encorporate the historic armies. Concercing the Carroccio, you might be right. I found the latest mention in 1325 at the Battle of Altopascio and a general decline of its usag...

Re: pike block

Thank you for the advice. That is exactly what I was thinking about the issue and how we handled it. For competitions I will just use casualitiy front bases as stand-in regular bases.

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 ...
