And if that is the case, I should be able to increase the Agelenidae , Amblypygi(and Commander crabfist), and tarantula attack both by 3, making their numbers 25, 25(45) and 45...

Edit: The Acarina, if I adjust their hits from 2 to 3, would that increase their cost to 10?

In response to Lt_Dave - 500 pts each. (Yes, I'm generous, but I think units're expensive now too).

Perhaps we should make a 3rd thread for the people with me?

Hey guys, one question-

how do we cap Attack? I see Crovius used my original suggestion of Attack<=Hits^(2/3).

That's fine, but if you want our units to do more damage to each other, how about the previous cap I suggested here, which was

"2*Hits or round up(4*Hits^(2/3)), whichever is lower", which results in the following Max Attack vs. Hits table

Spoiler: show
Code: Select all
Hits Attack Cap
1    2
2    4
3    6
4    8
5    10
6    12
7    14
8    16
9    18
10   19
11   20
12   21
13   23
14   24
15   25
16   26
17   27
18   28
19   29
20   30
21   31
22   32
23   33

25   35
26   36

54   58
55   58
56   59
57   60

(Up until 9HP, a unit can have twice its Hits as attack, but after that the ratio tends to decrease).
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.

Stack of Commancer Crabfist and 4 Amblypygi
Stack of 1 Tarantula and 7 Acraina (who should be able to all mount the tarantula)

Sorry, had the names written down as their more common names on a sheet of paper.

By Mites, you mean Acarina, and by Web Spiders you mean Agelenidae, yes?

Posting side soon ...

I take it we're allowed 5 units, and that the usual rules of TBfGB apply (Defense average). Except the cost formula and attack caps.

And the forces will be led by Chairman Rofl Mao, a Commander Version of the SniperCat.

Initial stacks:

Tim Melee
1x Cheezburger, 3x LongCat

Tim Ranged
2x LOLCatiusha, 3x SniperCat, Chairman Rofl Mao

for 491 points (9 remaining).

So as you can see, a somewhat fast, not exhorbitantly tough but serviceable, side. Useful for early maneuvers and territory control, before we can bring Crovius's heavies to the fore.

I'll be making a separate thread for the actual game shortly; a hex map is also almost done. :D

Warning- I made a mistake in attack capping for the LOLCatiusha and LongCat units. Both should have attack at 19, and 10 Hits. Costs adjusted to reflect this.

Doesn't affect the original troop composition for PRLC.

Twoy's thoughts on Siege, taken mercilessly from the other thread. Please use this thread to discuss siege and any other significant rules, and if enough of you like a set of rules, we might even officialize them.
Type 1: Siege Tower
A Siege Tower has move 1 and Attack 0. Maximum holding capacity is equal to its hits. Only units with 6 Hits or less may use a siege tower. Defending units engaged by units inside of a Siege Tower do not receive a fortification bonus. The cost of a siege tower is according to the normal rules. Required specials for a Siege Tower are Siege (Cost +10) and Container (Cost +2/unit).

Sample Siege Tower:
Move: 1, Hits: 7, Att: 0, Def: 5, Cost: 38, Specials: Siege, Container 7. (Note: Container 7 cost 14 points)

Type 2: Battering Ram
A Battering Ram has move 1 and Attack 0. Units using a Battering Ram must have at least 4 Heavy Units (Greater than 6 Hits) to use a Battering Ram during an attack against a fortification. Defending units inside a fortification engaged by units using a Battering Ram receive a negative to their fortification bonus equal to the Battering Rams Battering Level. The cost of a Battering Ram is according to the normal rules. Required specials for a Battering Ram are Siege (Cost +10) and either Battering 1 (Cost +10) or Battering 2 (Cost +20).

Sample Battering Ram:
Move: 1, Hits: 5, Att: 0, Def: 5, Cost: 37, Specials: Siege, Battering 2.

Additional Rules:
Flying units may not use siege weapons of any kind. Defending units inside a fortification do not receive a fortification bonus to defense when attacked by a flying stack; however, defending units inside a fortification with a tower receive a +.1 leadership bonus when attacked by a flying stack.

So, there's that set of rules. Or, we could give walls hits, let Battering Rams and Siege Towers and Assorted Other Units (e.g. Battle Bears) attack the walls, reducing the hits, and we let your units in at some arbitrary point in time.

Other thoughts?

Proposed Artillery Rule:
Spoiler: show
Discussion: Siege Towers and Battering Rams are only useful against fortifications. Trying to cwoak a Dwagon with a Battering Ram does not seem to be very effective. Artillery, on the other hand, should be useful against units and fortifications, but should also be correspondingly more expensive.

Artillery units have a maximum Move of 1 and minimum Hits of 10. Artillery units function as normal ranged units in battle not involving a fortified hex. Defending units inside a fortification engaged by units using Artillery receive a negative to their fortification bonus equal to the Artillery Unit's Artillery Level. Artillery units must have the Ranged special and the Artillery 1 (+10) or Artillery 2 (+20) special.

Sample Artillery:
Abyssal Cannon-Move: 1, Hits: 10, Att: 15-Ranged, Def: 5, Cost: 63, Specials: Ranged, Artillery 2.

I did not give artillery the Siege special, but it might need it. I feel like the sample artillery unit might be a bit overpowered for its cost. Adding an extra 10 points to the cost might balance the unit a bit better.

Sword of Ruthlessness
Leadership +1
Attack +3
Ruthlessness (Only when wielded by Chief Warlord: An allied attacking stack within one hex range of the Chief Warlord does an additional 10 percent damage to the defending stack if the attacking stack is completely destroyed.)

Sadly, not yet. Twoy's just suggesting some items for the North Wing to find. I've put all the items on my map at my base camp, this is just the first stage of the battle.

His suggestions make my job easier, though. :D
