I can see the argument for deeper formations working so no problem there, with my Assyrian slingers limbering up as we speak.Hi Andy,
This post hasn't generated any replies but I have gone back to revisit the area.
The reason a deep formation of archers is more effective, in my opinion, is that it combines direct, flat trajectory shooting with overhead fire. A Shield can only be used against one type of shooting at a time, so the receiving unit is seriously inconvenienced by this.
As far as I am concerned the rules as shown in the rulebook model this simply and pretty well. I have been trying to find my notes to see why we put the errata in and I can't locate them. If nothing turns up to change my mind therefore, I will consider removing the errata (may be a first!)
Hi Mate think you've got a bit of a typo in there, did you mean 75% gets six dice?I don't see the advantage of a table. Under the unamended rules, a formation of 6 bases of archers gets 8 dice. A 6 base combined formation which is 25% archers gets 6 dice. If it is 50% or 25% archers it gets 3 dice. This models the reducing effectiveness in a nice simple way.
