Re: What Scale for Infamy

I recall being shown around the Mary Rose, and the guide saying, "Of course, the Tudors were much shorter. The average was only 5'7 tall."

I'm 5'6.

Soviet anti-mine doctrine

I seem to recall reading somewhere that Stavka analysed the relative effects of going through minefields vs being funnelled into the prepared killing ground, and found that you lost fewer men charging through the minefield.

Has anyone houseruled on this?

Re: Civil War!

Re the Romans on Romans scouting, I would simply use the 'In Roman Territory' rules (p 33):

Each side places one per Cavalry unit in their force, and the person with most Cavalry+scouts places one more. Simples.

Re: Bronze Age Infamy

Following. The obvious solution would be to downgrade the dice rolled by most things, but not by chariot (and give Elite Shock chariots a couple of extra dice)

I'm probably being blind, but I can't see where it's defined what the results of these formations is.

Re: What Scale for Infamy

Modern humans are at least 10% taller than just 70 years ago, and Italianate folks have always tended to be smaller than northern Europeans, so if we were on 1.0 in Roman times there is a good case for saying we are now on version 1.1 or 1.2.

Re: What Scale for Infamy

Horses for courses, in CoC, for my money. 28mm in built up areas is great. Because it's supposed to feel claustrophobic and crowded and right on top of each other. For the 'Empty Battlefield' field engagement, I totally agree with you.
