    Thanks – yes I didn’t do the medieval book, its not an area I know much about and I suspect its based on the lists you suggest.

    I did try and check all those lists for points clues, but undoubtably some typos got through 🙂

    Personally I would like all the lists to be expanded into their own individual lists or booklets like the age of warlords Thats a mammoth project and needs to be done by someone that knows the period. I do have some lists on the crusades, and the medieval period but really it needs someone to ‘volunteer’ and put their stamp on it

    I can help with guidance on any ‘special/feature’ rules and points checking and editing etc etc.

    If you fancy that, then let me know.

    I have sent you an email so you have my personal email rather than info, where messages tend to get lost with all the spam that arrives

    kind regards

    yep both are there already!

    I think the version in the early list is more useful

    In the early crusades list he enables a reroll of failed combat morale tests
    In the original crusades list he allows extra SIPs
    If that early list is not on the forum here it will be in a few moments once I have checked!

    Donald, thanks for the update, good to hear you like what you have received!

    Yes, about 10 units per side should give you plenty, my greeks tend to be about 8 to 9 plus personalities.

    I would suggest start with 1500 to 2000 points as a maximum per side, as this gives enough to get a good game, but not enough to have access to every troop type.

    I would suggest as umpire, you draw up the army lists,, a civil war might make it simpler as neither side can complain the other had better troops 🙂

    Welcome to War & conquest – I also answered your other post in the QRC section

    1 – If the Romans are not in the woods, they are not disordered and get their bonuses. I acknowledge that in some cases there is a discussion if one model is in the wood and the rest are not, what should apply but being strict about it, thats the rule.

    2 – Just use b

    Hope those answers help

    any others questions feel free to ask and do let us know how the battles went

    Hi there

    Welcome to the world of War & Conquest

    yes when charging there is only the Impact Bonus of +1, unless its clearly noted elsewhere in an army list or similar.
    In the book (page 80) Impact is listed under ‘other bonuses’ to remind you about it. We first meet it on page 53. It looks like the person who did the QRC (a member of the community) just duplicated it, I will see if I can edit it in some way.

    A countercharging unit does not get the impact bonus, see page 53 for why

    Cavalry are Battle Formations but currently get no Combat Rank Bonus but do get Push and Shove bonus and if they charge enemy flank or rear, you get those bonuses as well.
    I have written some updates and am planning on giving cavalry Combat Rank bonus (subject to history in some circumstances) to help level them up a bit. Because of that, Shock bonus will then change. More on that in a few weeks.

    Brilliant, good to hear it arrived in what seems like a reasonable time considering the distance involved!

    Any questions just shoot me an email, message or carrier pigeon.

    Email usually get best results as I do sometimes miss posts on the forum or Facebook..

    Look forward to hearing how the games go, I hope to get some more in soon myself as I have barely played a game of any sort for ages.

    If you have an email address I can send you a word file of an existing army list to use as a template if you like and we can work from there

    send me a mail via the the [email protected] address

    Brilliant, I was sure someone else had done one, but off hand I can’t seem to locate it so it might be on an old pc and mislaid when we changed forums

    So happy to help put one together.

    No problem replying its just takes me longer 🙂

    8 cats can take on 16 infantry, provided they charged they probably have a decent chance.

    Whilst I am obviously biased, the book was put together to be a real visual feast, with the vast majority of rule explanations using photos rather than diagrams, probably one of the first times it was done at the level we took it to.. 🙂

    You can view some page spreads when you look at the War & conquest rulebook in the webstore

    Many people were/still are very impressed and I am very proud of the book – games not too bad either 🙂

    Whilst it might seem an odd thing to suggest, if you can find a willing gaming group partner, buying two copies may work out less expensive overall than two copies individually..

    If you want more than that let me know and I can see if there are better/cheaper ways to send them. (possibly not, but I can take a look) – just let me know

    Hope that helps

    Hi

    hopefully you got my email, on holiday and it looks like you put the first post as we left 🙂

    Answer to q 3, not familiar with fog basing, but if both armies are based the same I am sure you can make it work.

    Q2, NO shouldn’t be, but always happy to try and help confirm points values, especially if we are getting some new lists out of it 🙂

    Q1 – you will probably want to combine the infantry into units of 24 for more durability. this is easy to do by making a new movement tray to the correct frontage and putting the models on there rather than physically rebase them.

    Check the Age of Warlords booklet as this may help with some of your army list needs and were well played in a couple of themed events. (all the event reports were lost when we changed the website and forum unfortunately )

    there’s a battle report called ‘they came from beyond the sea’ which gives some explantation to the rules, you can download it from here or the scarab webstore for free.

    Any other questions please ask,

    Kind Regards

    Write more army lists

    Organise a WAC event near Bristol and there is also going to be WAC at Britcon in August.

    On the army front, continue with my Trojan project (which is massive) and possibly start on Persians to fight my Greeks.

    Look forward to hear how things go with the Victrix models. They do Persians, so I shall get some to go with Wargames Atlantic and all the metal ones I have in the pile 🙂

    A number of these lists could be easily converted using the ‘art of war’ lists in the Warhammer Historical book of the same name. I started on some of them at one point, drop me an email and I will see if I can dig out some files.

    After several draft versions and several play tests I am finally on the trail of a successful magic system – having something I like is important, but it also mustn’t be too complex, and I think I am there.

    Currently writing it up, and a playlets on the 13th September should be the final test.. Orcs will meet dark elves again its definitely a grudge game 🙂
