Re: Skirmishers shattering Elephants

While I ungrudgingly acknowledge his success, I nevertheless wonder why skirmishers get a +2 in close combat vs. Elephants, while Light Foot and Raiders do not.

Re: Skirmishers shattering Elephants

(...) training specifically in skirmishing (duh). So LtFt/Raiders are fighting in their ranks and do not have any skirmishing abilities? We classify stands into buckets. Everything must go into a bucket; nothing can go into two buckets. We turn the infinitely varied and complex historical world (ab...

Fantasy Triumph (and Grand Triumph) are on the schedule for some focused attention after Cold Wars. Pop me an email after Marc...

Re: Shot at from the rear and falling back

"74.5 When a stand is forced to fall back as a result of distant shooting at its rear, the target stand first turns in place 180 degrees and then falls back as usual (see article 58)." "58.3 When shot at from the rear, the target stand ignores a fall back combat result and is unaffec...

Re: Bohemimiens

Bohemian Slav here might not be a perfect name for this group, as it includes Moravians and Corinthians. Carinthians, I assume :) Right, them. ;) I don't think "Central Slav" is very felicitous; these are mainly peoples on the western margin of the Slavic world. Unfortunately, "Weste...
