questions about the Ubique scenario

Post by Paul H »

- do the Romans always all start on the table, or can they hold some back to ambush?
- do the engineers use their special power towards the task roll?

Thanks for any advice

As I read it all the Romans start on the table (cavalry supports useful to mess up barbarian ambush points).

I don't think it's explicit whether they do or not. I'd suggest that packing things away isn't engineering per se, so they wouldn't.

thanks - both of those make sense

(the engineers I know would think they would be good at packing things away, but would not be so in reality)

When I played this scenario I forgot to put out the Engineers' defenses.
They got run over by a Gallic steamroller which made it an auto-loose for the Romans.

Thanks Matt. Do the engineers come with some free defences or do I need to pay for them?

Page 77 states that when Engineers are present they get 6" of defences for free.
I assume that this is not limited to those taken as a support option.
