Re: Units failing to deploy.

Well, in a fit of desperation, I've just ordered some poker chips. It will be entertaining to see the comparison if nothing else! 😀 Interesting point about the position of Campaigns in all this. In fact one of the reasons we are hammering away at Infamy and its game play to make things work (as we s...

Re: Rich’s New game video and big question

Oh Yes, the Victorians have many, many, things to answer for! 😀 Then indeed there was corruption but that was a natural as breathing with the the Roman state in general, was it not? Something, somehow, must have worked regardless, within the military, or they enjoyed far more luck over the centuries...

Re: Units failing to deploy.

Yes, that's a very fair summary. At the moment in my personal preference ranking, its CoC, then Infamy with SP2 a distant third. A lot of that is probably due to the levels of role playing in each of them, which is just a matter of how you see things. Although, I will say I think SP2 suffers the mos...

Re: Rich’s New game video and big question

The groundscale for CoC, SP2 and Infamy is around 4 yards to the inch, or 12" is about 50 yds. Oh! Is that in TFL canon? I know its quoted in CoC, what about the other two (don't own SP2). If you have 2 groups of cavalry at 2:1, that'd be 24 men, which would be a slightly understrength turma. Yes, ...

Re: Units failing to deploy.

Yeah got it. I've now seen the American guys who have a regular presence on You Tube playing Chain of Command, Sharpe Practice and more recently Infamy doing it. They have been finding learning Infamy a grind, compared with the other two, from their comments. We have considered doing it in another v...

Re: Units failing to deploy.

OK, going to have to read that scenario yet again! Not wanting to pass the buck but always playing round a friends house, I tend to go with the flow where these matters are concerned as he sets up in advance. So do you put out the Romans in advance, or is this their revenge for the Ambush/Deployment...

Units failing to deploy.

In the early 1970's they made a movie called Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came? I was reminded of this earlier this week when my Romans didn't turn up. Now granted it was in possibly the worst Scenario in the rule book "Ubique" but to cut a long story short the trusty group of engineers I was ...

Re: Rich’s New game video and big question

Centurions moved legion to legion quite often I can see that where one or more Legions were stationed in proximity, or on campaign where "vacancies" were handily created via mortality but surely there wasn't some form of succession planning where someone in Syria got the opportunity for freezing hi...

Re: Rich’s New game video and big question

We are now thinking of a simple progression Level 1 = 2D6, Level 2 = 4D6 and Level 3 = 6D6. Its undoubtedly the case that living long enough was the ultimate key to progression and every rank of Centurion had a lower one looking over his shoulder and a line of Optio behind that. Personally, I see th...

Re: Rich’s New game video and big question

I have to confess the use of these extra dice in Combat has certainly made me see the Capsarius in a new light! 😄
