Buildings in Infamy, Infamy!

Post by BaronVonWreckedoften »

I've seen a lot of folk making up elaborate Romanesque buildings (walled farms, villas, temples etc), but what exactly is the status of a building in I/I as opposed to a fortification/defensive work? Are they principally decorative, or are they supposed to be more functional, or does the player have the option? And if functional, then to what extent - can you fight from room to room, for example, as in CoC?

Asking for a friend, obviously...... 8-)

Villa's can be attacked and there are rules to break into the villas and a couple of the scenarios involve burning buildings down both Roman and Barbarian. Also one scenario demands three areas of habitation to forage for for food (these can be buildings or areas of food.

However no real fighting in buildings and definitely no shooting from buildings.

Answering for a friend as well!

Would Germanic buildings be greatly different from Dark ages Viking ones ? Largely wood mud and thatch?

I think as long as it doesn't have any features that make it too 'viking' they would be interchangeable otherwise. At least it wouldn't look completely out of place.

You can find ancient 28mm buildings/forts at Acheson Creations.

I see Caliver are advertising some buildings packs for Infamy. A mix of plastic and medium I think.
