Ambush Card

Post by David Kuijt » Sat Jun 10, 2017 11:48 am

Could readers help me crowdsource the research for what armies should have the following Battle Card (currently with the holding name "The Hills Are Alive", but that name will change).
Cost: 1 pt
Rules Change: non-Battleline open-order foot may deploy either as normal, or as follows (all the below must be true):
  • In difficult terrain
  • Outside the enemy deployment zone
  • At least 1mu from any enemy
If both armies have this battle card in the same battle they are both negated and deployment is as if neither had it (i.e., normal).
So if you have a candidate army for getting this card, please let me know which army and support your argument as you can (guaranteed inclusion is if reasonable data from a battle description is included).

I can only think of one instance offhand but it was Belisarius' use of his Hun allies so that is mounted; not foot. I'll keep thinking though.
