Re: Shooting

According to 52.6 more than one stand can shoot at a target at the same time.

I didn't find any limit to the maximum possible number of shooters.

Did I miss something ?

Re: Move distance in difficult terrain.

... Is it that you see men on horses as always faster than men on foot, across any terrain? Or (to use a less strong term) perhaps that you see men on horses as never slower than men on foot? ... Yes, this is my thinking. And it's usually (in my limited experience) accepted that a difficult terrain...

Re: Move distance in difficult terrain.

In the game we only consider pieces of terrain (excluding coast) which are passable by definition by troops (several hundreds or a thousand men) . A really difficult terrain that a unit of 1000 men counts as impassable during a battle is not considered in the game. So my question is about the differ...

Re: Move distance in difficult terrain.

Mounted troops have a move distance of 3 MU when moving through difficult.

So on a steep hill (difficult terrain) a stand of Light Foot has a much higher speed than a stand of Javelin Cavalry (or Horse Bow).

I'm puzzled.

Re: Early Imperial Roman Auxilia as Raiders

Sure, I'll give it a spin ASAP. My comment was in response to Fab's intention of choosing between Light Infantry and Raiders when fighting warriors/warbands: my point was that with most Roman lists you can't, it's either LI or Raiders, (and I agree with Fab that LI seemed a better counter to barbar...

Re: Group move in difficult terrain : cost in CP ?

Re-reading the rules I'd like to double check my understanding. I have a line of 3 Heavy Foot in front of an enemy line, perfectly aligned. I move the line straight ahead to frontally contact the enemies, but my leftmost stand by going straight ahead, passes through a piece of difficult terrain. The...

Re: Early Imperial Roman Auxilia as Raiders

When fighting chariots I leave them at home and take Raiders ! ;)

Re: Early Imperial Roman Auxilia as Raiders

Just looking at the tables and without any test match, I would use Light Foot against Warband/Warrior.

They are not shattered if beaten, cost less, have more speed, the same combat factors and do not suffer the -1 in difficult terrain.

These are my Auxilia Palatina !

My two cents

Re: Early Imperial Roman Auxilia as Raiders

No, they are shattered if beaten by warband and warriors just like Elite Foot, Heavy Foot, Horde, Pavisiers, Pike and Spear (62.2).
