Re: Grading Troops

I hesitate to add to this as I'm no expert on grading troops and I'm probably not helping here. Plus this is an old question you may have answers to. Given the period most troops are raw or drilled unless part of the military establishment for the army of which they served. Training, uniforms and eq...

Re: With Talon & Claw pdf?

All the others are so I suspect these will as well. Not sure of the timeline though.

Re: BLB Cards in Wo3K

The events in BtlB 1 are sort of what they are referring to. There was talk of expanding and editing them so they were not as impactful as some of the events are in those rules. (some would turn the tide with no hope of recovery) There was talk of at some point to produce them for purchase as well b...

Re: Some questions from today’s game.

Not sure of the situation/ intention so bear with me. Just give them a form order, but they have to be in base to base contact behind one another first. Otherwise, yes, you have to go through the minutiae of wheeling. I.e. Separated they are individual sqdns, combined they in essence one. Also once ...

Re: Sculptor Wanted for 28mm Historical Flodden Range.

Steve Barber is top notch. I worked with him years ago when I was stationed in England and he painted my first ever LoA figures and flags. I have them to this day. Good luck on the project.

Re: First game and a few questions

Without seeing the situation several assumptions had to be made. What were the order allowances, did the 2nd sqdn get a movement order, did they not, did they take fire that reduced them below the required level of casualties to provide support, etc? In most cases when a sqdn charges it moves well a...

Re: First game and a few questions

If, instead of reinforcing, Squadron C had remained in a Supporting role, would they be required to take a Morale Test? No. They are only subject to a morale test if they were involved in the melee. However if there were a breakthrough then they would need to test for being charged. Also they are no...

Re: First game and a few questions

Turns have phases, the close combat phase has rounds or bounds If the result of a melee is that the opponents fight another round of combat, do they do so immediately or in the following round? I assume that it means the latter but confirmation would be good. Melee is fought in the same turns comba...

Bound or round of combat, they're interchangeable and mean the same to me. :)

Re: First game and a few questions

Simon,et.al., Only the charged foot get to issue fire during this phase of the turn as only the charging horse sqdn and defending foot battalion are active. If after the horse sqdn takes casualties from fire and fails morale causing it to stop short, then the additional foot units may shoot at that ...

Re: All or Nothing Charge

Hi Barry,
I believe your design was to use it as a rare last ditch"we need to win this fight", but it turned into everyday use. When teaching the rules I don't even cover it as an option.

Re: All or Nothing Charge

The All or Nothing combat bonus of number of stands that get to fight only count in the initial bound of combat. After that the additional sqdns only provide support bonuses. Morale results are carried across all sqdns involved like normal and combat is lost once the principle unit is wiped out.

Re: BLB3 compared to BLB2?

Not sure of a posting somewhere that mentions the differences. But, the big one is different dice for different morale grades, D6 Raw, D8 Drilled etc. The addition of special characters, Master Gunner and the like. In short they brought BlB 3 in line with the Donnybrook rules. The events options wer...

Re: BLB 3 Charging retreating unit question

It's not really covered in the rules Gordon. My take would be as follows. First the charging horse has to pass morale to charge. Retreat and routing units are not interested in sticking around so ignore the rule that they have to check morale and move to (pg 70) 1/4 increments to see if contact is m...
