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. That’s been asked ...

Re: Vercingetorix’s Army Question

No they can’t form a Mob. The Noble cavalry don’t have that characteristic and can only combine with other cavalry. As long as the Group is within command range of the Leader then he can activate each group individually at the cost of a CI so you don’t need to wait for Tempus Fugit. That’s does limi...

Re: Additional dice used to spot also for leaders?

Hi Dirk,
Yes I’d let a Big Man do that. Of course he could always use it to spot the same position a second time in the hope of rolling better dice on his spotting roll.

Re: Austrian Advanced Guard

I’d certainly treat it as a Brigade and do so with my own version.
Using the cavalry attached to the infantry can be a little tricky though and I will often combine them with another cavalry unit into a separate cavalry brigade or split it into two smaller units.

Re: Corps Blimey

From some of the comments they’ve made on their various Podcasts I think Nick and Rich play that sort of game using a Kreigsspiel approach on a Discord server with multiple players. If you haven’t spotted them already you might want to watch out for the new “O Group” rules by Dave Brown, of Battlegr...

Re: Seven spears Samurai

Hi Dirk,
One of the things I like about Daisho is that you can decide whether to play a scenario historically or add an element of movie antics with your heroes having special skills or go all out fantasy in a Japanese setting. All seamlessly integrated. I generally go the middle route.

Re: Firing small arms at AFV's does this count as a ambush

Hi Jan, It may be an “ambush“ but I don’t think that is what is intended to qualify as achieving the military objective in that particular scenario. If anything it’s entirely contrary to the mission aim since it is revealing the presence of your troops leaving them open to retribution for no permane...

Re: Chariots in Infamy

As TT says, scythe chariots are very rare despite what some Wargamers like to think or Wargames rules allow. They appear to have been used as a device to break up infantry phalanxes and were one shot weapons which quickly proved useless as disciplined troops learnt how to counter them. Too many Warg...

Re: FIX BAYONETS

Close Combat in CoC includes charging with the bayonet or more likely Close Quarter Battle using short range fire and grenades as well as hand to hand. Why should the enemy be obliged to retreat if some idiot wants to try using cold steel alone? They aren’t 18thC American Militia being charged by Br...
