    Yes that is correct, with hindsight, 15 points may be too much so I might review that

    NB, Not ignoring your posts, the problem with this new forum is as administrator it doesn’t show the most recent posts unless I drill down into the separate topic groups, so its easy to miss the questions and comments – for which I thank you

    Thanks for that – if I recall the skirmish cavalry represents one of the factions mercenaries, from circa Stoke Field period BUT I could be wrong and I don’t have the relevant book handy to check

    Anyone else got any thoughts on the longbows addition and the suggested SA reduction to compensate (or perhaps not?

    I realised after posting I didn’t include any of the clever tricks the mongols used, such as flanking moves and confusing the enemy with straw dummies etc etc, will add these as Legends of war in the next version and so thoughts are welcome

    George its worth considering (as I was last night) that the reason Macedon moved forward was their use of cavalry and other troops, as I understand it the Pike blocks were the anvil that held the enemy in place and the cavalry and other troops finished the enemy off.

    The Greek hoplite phalanx is powerful to the front but is severely limited in its ability to manoeuvre as I know only too well – I have lost enough battles because of it!

    Anyway, just updating both Alexs and Successor lists, they will be online a little later today – just going to make a note about the pikes versus spears bit

    We are currently in self isolation as one of the daughters has a temperature, that seems to have broken now thankfully

    And as I am currently reviewing the Alexander list (because another player had sent in a few observations) I noticed some of the Alex era pikes can have extra armour on top of light armour, so this would certainly neutralise the large shield – but of course remember a Trained Phalanx has benefits over a Phalanx when it comes to manoeuvring and over time, armour was sacrificed for this advantage

    PLus of course – take plenty of pikes to win out on numbers fighting!

    Thanks for the observation and there is a simple solution, one that should have been there from the start – Long thrusting spears can reroll their ‘to hit’ rolls in the opening round of combat against thrusting spears, the same should apply to pikes against both types of spears – as the combat continues, these bonuses are lost because the troops have got much closer (but pike armed get the advantage of more models fighting if they have taken extra ranks) – I will look to add that to the errata

    Other comments most welcome – sorry late to the party, the problem with the new forum is it doesn’t seem to show the most recent posts on the main page

    Here is the first draft of the Mongol list – this is primarily aimed at the Mongol conquests, and will be expanded in future versions – as ever suggestions and observations most welcome!

    So progress is being made, due to a file size restriction I am not posing pics here at the moment until I get round to doing some resizing or amend the max file size.

    Theres been a couple of dark elves versus rat folk games and tonight, its dark elves versus the orcs and goblins – should be a good one as its the updated magic system, which, I think, is most done – tonight will tell!

    There is no penalty for shooting at skirmishers, but they get the benefit of 1 Armour Save.

    Pleased to hear you enjoyed the rules, any pictures of the battle and who won?
