Byzantines - Darts in combat

Postby serenity » Tue May 18, 2021 6:46 pm

Hi

In the combat phase if you don’t throw your javelins in the shooting phase you gain one die per two bases in the front rank (rounded up).

As a missile weapon darts are akin to javelins. I was wondering if the same rule for javelins applied to darts in combat, i.e. you gain an additional die/dice if they were not used in the preceding shooting phase?

Thanks, Andy

No darts are only useful in the shooting phase, where of course they interface with bow-armed rear ranks to give many more shooting dice than a javelin-armed unit can muster.
