Re: Kublacon Invitational

We had 8 people commit and 5 show up. Not an unusually low turn out by Kublacon standards as it is not a great venue for historical games or more particualrly historical tournments. In the best days of WAB we used to at most get 10-12 players, with 8 being more the average. If I do anything again at...

Re: Carthaginian list

I would assume you just state which Carthagenian list/location you are using and comply with those restrictions for the the tournament.

Re: Pompey Pillage - 2017

My experience so far with elephants is that you will (probably) not win with them against formed infantry if the infantry are shieldwall/phalanx or are superior. That assumes the infantry passes its cohesion test when charged by the beast, which makes elephants attacks somewhat of an all or nothing ...

Re: Barding and order

Thanks Martin. So for barded cavalry, not alrady listed as massed cavalry, you get the +1 modifier for being close order, but you don't get the +1 for having an extra rank of depth. Correct?

Re: Q: Combat Result Modifiers - Nervous

My recolelction is that Nervous is defined as " A unit with an enemy unit within its flank zone and within 1 inch of it, but not in combat with it, deducts 1 from its CR score." Going on memory So , as long as you have skirmishers within 1 inch of the flank zone of the combat the subject unit should...

Re: Q: Combat Result Modifiers - Nervous

I assume a unit could be both discouraged and nervous?

If I have skirmishers behind the flank in a position to shoot into a combat I assume that could also be a cause of nervousness, but that may force the skirmishers to get closer than they want to trigger nervous?
