Re: Opponants in London

Hi there. The Wargames Association of Reading has a few players. Not quite London, but not too far away.

Re: Battle line and incomplete rear ranks

Battle line and incomplete rear ranks

Three units arranged as per the diagram below. As can be seen unit B has an incomplete rear rank -----BBB AAAB---CCC AAA-----CCC Units A and B are clearly in a battle line, but do units B and C also count as being in a battle line? Or in other words, do you count an incomplete rear rank as covering ...

Re: Flank charge from the battle line

Thanks Martin. I was reading test 2 on bottom of page 20 which says "Look at the area that will be swept by the unit footprint during its move" etc. I was taking the unit footprint to be the movement tray in effect, but I should interpret it as the area swept by the footprint of the front rank, whic...

Flank charge from the battle line

Three 2 deep units are in line of battle. The left hand unit is in combat with an enemy unit. The centre unit wishes to declare a charge on the flank of he enemy unit. However, to achieve this charge, the rearmost ranks will contact the right hand unit during the move. Is this charge legal? In reali...

Re: EIR Centurions

Oops - missed that bit

I think it still means that 1 am likely to have bunch of centurions hanging around the back of the units if the general is within 12 inches (which is quite likely in a small expensive Roman army). The risk of loosing army break points outweighs their utility.

Re: EIR Centurions

I read that as that they can only convey cohesion benefits to legionary units, but as with other characters, they do not actually need to join them to do that.

EIR Centurions

These chaps play a bit funny. You need to have them to get Legates. However, it makes no sense to put them in the legionary units, as they convey no attack benefits and if a unit is lost you would lose an additional army break point. Consequently we will see them leading their brave boys from behind...

Re: Early Imperial Roman Army

I would echo Wayne's comments, I think 5 is the optimal number for Legionary bases, as it is very hard to kill a base - it's just a shame it looks odd. I would also max out the characters to increase your cohesion - 1 general, 3 legates and 4 centurions. Also remember in this game, once a unit break...
