Re: Game deck of cards

You don't need them unless you have additional units on the table not directly commanded by a noble (so mostly skirmishers), either in a bigger one-off game or if you get reinforcements in a campaign. The only cards you need to for the starting force are the ones you've mentioned. Hope that helps. C...

Re: Fate Cards

Nothing in particular, just whatever you want to use them for in any game where you need extra cards.

Re: Suitability for SCW?

There's also an SCW supplement for IABSM in the 2004 summer special, called Up Your Cara El Sol. It was written for the previous version of IABSM, but converting between versions is simple.

Re: Renaissance Italian Wars & SP2...

Hi, That would almost certainly be the fantastic game put on by the Harrogate club, which they have taken to a number of venues and I finally got to play in last October at E'bor Lard. As far as I know they haven't posted their rule amendments anywhere, but I know John, at least, hangs out here some...

Re: Ongoing Rule Clarification Thread

Hi, I think you are over-thinking it a little. Remember, deployment isn't activation - the rules are similar in many ways, but they aren't the same, don't carry over or act in either case as examples of how to do the other. So, when deploying a scout team a CD of '1' is used, as per 4.5.1 (if it hel...

Re: Uncontrolled units

To answer your last question first, no it does cost an initiative for the test, other than the one required to activate the unit in the first place. As to the rest, you've got that all correct but I would add a couple of clarifications. Firstly, if you don't activate them, then they are worse than n...
