    OK, got it thanks.  Very good point it is too.  We will be playing a few systems, though mostly BP,  and the 15mm infantry will be based 8 figures in two rows to a 40*30 mm base with two bases to a battalion, the frontage is thus 80mm.  I had planned to model a battery using two guns on 40*40 mm bases making a battery also 80 mm wide, given a bat…[Read more]

    Big Al’s post said “Further, the increased unit frontage (and this is why I think players like it) means that there is less chance of bringing a second unit into the fight when they charge the artillery. If you are charging a single model, any adjacent unit will be contacted and included in the combat. That means additional Closing Fire attacks…[Read more]

  • Oh, that’s interesting.  Is Pas de Charge no more then?  I didn’t realise BP2 had invalidated supplement suggested rules, merely that you used them only if you wanted?  If any rule or suggested rules have been ‘rendered obsolete’ it might be useful if an FAQ was published so folks can easily find what they are.

  • Yeah I think you’re right.  It’s in contrast to Shrapnel which is a British round option and obviously can be selected for firing if they have the rule.  I’d agree the 3 Nap books could do with at least being brought into line with each other, if nothing else, by way of an FAQ/Errata/Update.  It’s not something Warlord tends to do though it se…[Read more]

  • Yeah we are planning to use 2 guns to represent our batteries just so that the frontage is correct in proportion to the battalion frontage.  It also helps prevent the key holing of artillery fire through a 1 cm gap between 2 infantry battalions.  We have it that each of the two gun barrels needs to be able to draw a LOS to the target unit for t…[Read more]

  • Excellent point! For some reason I TOTALLY missed the downgrade option in the list pages 156-159, it’s the same (following a brief quick glance) in AT2.  Makes it easier for me as I wasn’t keen on the idea of allowing the use of half batteries in pairs (or adding yet more fiddly mechanics) as I don’t think that was the intention of the rule at…[Read more]

  • Asking because in CoE / AT2 there is the option to deploy artillery half batteries that fire at 2-1-1. Just pondering how / whether to implement this. We could either only allow half batteries where a specific scenario called for them (or maybe in circumstances where you might, for instance, split a horse battery into two halves to have each half…[Read more]
