Re: Cover and Obscured Target

Generally speaking when we play we say if a model is in the Open it's a clear shot (although if we've agreed that it's a foggy environment this can be different). Otherwise if there is anything between a shooting model and the target then an obscured target roll is required. If a the shooter is in b...

Re: Weapons Costs?

Welcome to LaBambaMan, Colin has it right. Everything costs a point. One of the core elements in mind during the design of the game was that warband construction was to be kept in a flat environment (or as close as possible) so everything costs a single point of Renown. There are a few things where ...

Re: finaly Masters of the Sword

I had a double-take on this then remembered the date. :lol: Just think yourself lucky I didn't put the preorder up for the Sword Masters. I very nearly did that today but thought the date a something to avoid. Should be putting the preorder page up on Monday 3rd April. I originally planned to just r...

Re: Use of Slingers.

Yes. If you use a sling within 8" and and kill the target with the first hit then the second shot as part of that shoot action is lost. The target is no longer there. :)

Re: "Just one more game!....please!!"

Thanks for posting this 8elias8!

A fantastic looking set-up. I particularly like the use of counters for tracking FOR and MND - I've been considering a similar approach for demoing games at shows myself.

Really pleased to hear you're enjoying it!

Re: Halberds/Spears and special Rules

Spears and Halberds can attack from 1" away. A couple of questions spring to mind. a) When attacking from 1" away, does the spear-wielder count as engaged? I understand that "engaged" means "base-to-base contact" but I'm asking for clarification. b) If he's not engaged, can he be targeted by a rang...

Re: Gunpowder rifles and pistols - count as???

I'm juggling several things at once at the moment but the swordsmen supplement is the priority. I was hoping on having it released by now so I'm playing catch-up with my own deadlines on several bits of the product development/production side of the business (I'll be rolling straight onto the gunpow...
