Re: Just a thought

Hi, One of the things with Friction in rules is finding the right balance between acceptable setbacks and plain bad dicing (or other mechanics) that ruins a player's experience (especially at a demo participation game!) Our club has addressed this with rule tweaks that make REPEATED failures less li...

Re: 2 flank questions

Hi Polish Lancer,
Yes, during the game there was a tongue-in-cheek debate about "frontage" vs "flankage".

Re: 2 flank questions

Hi John, Interesting interpretation on the wider formation issue - as I myself would have ONLY given the bonus for being flanked, since flanked units are almost always narrower where they are contacted. I don't know if anyone else will offer a thought here. About the only time I haven't totally agre...

2 flank questions

Our latest game resulted in two questions for the forum to do with flank charges. In our case Prussian cavalry charged French cavalry in the flank resulting in a two-step melee. 1. In the charge resolution, would the charging unit get BOTH the flank charge bonus and the bonus for having a wider fron...

Re: Re-fighting Ligny

Following up, I have to ask where did you access the art used in your custom cards? It looks great.

Re: Re-fighting Ligny

Yes, yes, the town is stunning and the pictures are great - naturally.
But those ADC Tasking cards - very cool idea. Probably handy for guests in Convention games too. Congrats.

Re: Sk fire

It's the presence of clouds of skirmishers as an important feature of battle that distinguishes the French Revolution/Napoleonic era from the previous one. They became important because they became an effective weapon in major battles. I suspect that if Dave were to come out with a Seven Years War r...

Re: 28mm Con Game

Thanks for the comment, Archduke. Unfortunately we didn't get many close-in shots to show the quality of our collective collections. Many gamers around this area (Great Vancouver) have the 12-figure battalions based on standards for other rule sets. I've long been interested in striving for the best...

28mm Con Game

For those discussing games in 28mm. I have posted a few pictures from our GdA games at Vancouver's Trumpeter Salute Convention.
Both games featured the same scenario with Russians and Prussians facing the French. Please follow the link.

Re: Columns

Well, attack columns move faster, they are easier to maneuver and in some cases there narrower frontage could allow more than 1 battalion to charge a weakened enemy. We often use columns when racing for objectives such as towns or if advancing with Elites or Veterans which can change formation on th...
