I also reduce Scouting Cavalry's points by 1 per Group to compensate for the reduced numbers.

6 does make them more fragile, which is the main gripe. However they're fragile as 8s anyway.

Re: Simulating infantry v massed cavalry

Possibly, though I'm slightly wary of doing so. My own solution currently is to reduce Scouting Cavalry strength to 6 men per Group but giving them an extra d6" of movement at the walk and canter. I also let all cavalry at the halt/walk/canter Evade from a charge if they want and prohibit infantry f...

Re: Please help...command question

Also perhaps worth noting that in Infamy (unlike in COC and SP2) a unit's Activation is not made up of a set number of Actions. In Infamy you get to move and throw javelins (or whatever) and fight (if you make it into contact with an enemy), and do any or all of those things in any order when you ar...

Re: Skirmishing Roman Auxiliary Foot

8 dice, they're still Warriors. The entry John mentioned above mentions that explicitly, and is quite comprehensive on other potential issues.

Re: HELP PLEASE - Just tried a game and need help

Even if you can't get a game at Virtual Lard, I'm sure John Savage or Charlie would run a Zoom game for you, and I'm pretty sure they'd both be attending the 'virtual pub' on the Discord server afterwards, so you could ask them then.

Re: HELP PLEASE - Just tried a game and need help

If you have Zoom, you could potentially attend one of the Virtual Lardy Days (the next of which is advertised in a post in the general area of these forums).

Re: HELP PLEASE - Just tried a game and need help

It helps - to an extent - to be familiar with other Lardy rules like CoC or SP2, although there are substantial and significant differences in how each game works. Many people find the best way to learn Lardy rules is by playing a game against or run by someone already familiar with the rules rather...
