Re: BG firing long and short range

Okay, the BP you refer to on p107 applies only when a line of shooters faces a line of enemy targets that are an equal distance away and are offset such that the target bases are exactly 50% in front of one shooting base and 50% in front of the next shooting base. This is as described in the first t...

Hi Ptolemaic, sorry it's taken you so long to get a reply, I haven't looked at the forum in a couple of weeks. 1. Their range is the maximum shooting range of their battle group. Not sure which page that's on, you'd have to check through the index to find it. However, you should note that if you det...

Re: tercios with bow

I think you're right on 1 & 2

The bow will count as protected MF in the open so mounted won't get that +1 against them in impact, but, obviously, they aren't protected shot so they don't get that +1 against mounted and all weapons that are negated by protected shot count against the bow.

Re: Later Tercios

Three parts to this answer: There are no circumstances where a Later Tercio ceases to be a Tercio. So it retains the capacity to self-support and shoot sideways even when reduced to six bases (or five if superior or four if elite). The greater vulnerability to artillery is due to it being three base...

That's me and Gordon registered.

I suppose it's possible Gordon had already registered us, but with such a very small possibility I'd rather double book than miss out. :P

Re: Intercept Charge

No difference in FoGR - the only interception that is able to charge into contact with enemy is one that can make a flank charge on the on the original chargers (ie those being "intercepted"). Otherwise they stop short of the enemy and wait to be contacted by the chargers.

It was touch and go whether I turned up on the Friday I was feeling so rough, but a decent night's sleep made for a much more pleasant Saturday until I tasted that damned burger.

Re: Britcon 2015

So Kevin,

How about following the Roll Call precedent and announcing the draw in advance?

That way I can make an informed decision about when to turn up Friday evening 8)

Re: Detaching shot from Late Tercios

Point 1 it's 12 minutes to midnight and I've been drinking.

Point 2 I think the only way it can be done is if you take two LTs of 9 bases (6Sh/3P) and create an LT of 12 (6Sh/6P) and a BG of 6 Shot, or possibly and LT of 10 (4Sh/6P) and a BG of 8 Shot.
