Re: Fanatics

The Supra Numerum card should be in the deck from the beginning! Don I thought it was OK to leave it out Initially so as not to signal that there was a unit of Fanatics about! Though that would likely be a pretty open secret. :) John Troble is with that you would lose the flexability of launching a...

Re: Vercingetorix’s Army Question

RE fanatics and mobs.
The mob is an ambush point (for fanatics) and aren't ambush deployment points 'shut down' if an enemy unit is with 4"? (no rule book with me at mo).
If so then engaging in close combat would be within 4" and it would be inactive and unusable by the fanatics.

deploying chariots and terrain

The situation was that there was an ambush point 4" inside a wood. Q/ Can chariots deploy from that ambush point in the open terrain beyond the edge of the wood? The two competing theories if you like are a) the ambush/deployment point denotes the centre of an area where 'barbarian' forces are thoug...

Re: roman style and chucking javlins in general

found the answer on FB David Robotham Last one Lardy Rich and I'll go away (for at least a few days...). When a group/mob/formation is activated, what can it do, and is there a specific order of events? I thought we had it nailed down, but the comment about "Roman Style" threw me for a loop. · Reply...

Re: roman style and chucking javlins in general

roman style and chucking javlins in general

A warrior group can throw it's javelins at any point during it's move as long as there is an eligible target in range. Now here is the bit that I am a little perplexed about. roman style " .... these groups may hurl javelins before they contact the enemy or immediately before an enemy attack contact...
