Re: Combat to front and rear

Hi Waterhouse, It is shock that causes cavalry to retire after one or two rounds depending if they're Mounted Warriors or Skirmish Cavalry - assuming they didn't lose then no shock equals no retire (7.6.6). You're describing a situation when the enemy Group hit in the Front and Rear has effectively ...

Re: Lets talk about Surly Troops

Yes - of course if there was a Level 1 or Level 2 leader in command range, he could activate them as he outranks the SN.

Re: Lets talk about Surly Troops

Hi David, Yes they've opted to deploy and fight under the Named Leaders command as per page 73 on Troop Characteristics. The exception is Fanatics. They can keep their Supra Numerum Leader with a card in deck. This means they can ambush off of an Ambush point when the SN's card is dealt. However the...

Re: Lets talk about Surly Troops

In this instance I might "Play the Period" and not the rules! You allocate Groups to Leaders before the game begins so the narrative would be that both cavalry groups are from the same tribe being led by a Tribal leader. On this basis I would only roll once for their Surly characteristic and apply t...

Re: River Crossing

That was the Battle of the Medway crossing where allegedly the Batavian Auxiliaries swam the river. Roman Legionaries we’re trained to swim as part of their induction.

Generally though troops didn’t swim!

Re: Sequence of Combats

It is exactly as John (Archdukek) says, the impact is in future rounds. Often the Romans will have a tough decision, where Briton group 1 has been pushed back does the Roman Group follow up and hope that the adjacent combat is a draw and in the second round they will provide an overlap or do they fo...

Re: River Crossing

During play testing we experimented with various dice rolled states of the river. However Rich discarded this step as it was A) unnecessary chrome which added in complexity B) Many skirmish encounters were fought around bridges and fords which should be replicated. Therefore as John states the inten...

Re: Pilum and Combat

The Captain, John and Hamilton are correct - it is only casualties caused in the combat that count towards who wins the combat.

Re: Cavalry Shooting

Don’t charge Numidian cavalry unless they have nowhere to go but hit them with missile fire - they die just as easily!

Re: Poor Drill and Close Order

Close and open order isn’t a process of drill but it is available to drilled troops which the legionariesare. The two penalties for having poor drill are that:- 1. All drill actions cost double i.e. throwing Pila is 2 CI or Signa 2. They do not get the +2 for being drilled in the open. They may use ...
