I'd go just to see folks.  Haven't really followed the new rules and am seriously rusty.

Rules / Re: Flanking + Pinching?

Yes, yes, yes it is really bad.

Honestly, I forget that pinch bonuses stack half the time.  Usually one pinch is enough to kill just about any unit.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I guess getting pinched is even more devastating than I thought, and I already thought it was pretty darn bad!

Rules / Re: Flanking + Pinching?

Hi there!

All modifiers are cumulative.  So in this case, the flanking unit would be Flanking and Pinching.


And in fact Pinching can be cumulative!  If two units are pinching, each units gets (+0)+1/+1.  For every extra unit (on a new side), all units get an extra (+0)+1/+1!

So if Unit A is on the left flank, Unit B is on the front, and Unit C is on the right flank, all three of them get (+0)+2/+2 for pinching.

Then Unit A and Unit C would get the bonus for Flanking, so they'd get (+0)+3/+2.

Rules / Flanking + Pinching?
« Last post by Kaiju Manifold on August 18, 2021, 11:12:48 AM »
Hey everyone!

I am new to the game, having gone all in on the last Kickstarter and have been learning the rules by playing battles against myself using the sample armies in each faction deck.

I am unclear on whether the Flanking and Pinching attack bonuses are cumulative. That is, if I am pinching a unit does my unit on the defender's flank get both the Flanking bonus and the Pinching bonus? I have been playing that the Pinching bonus supersedes the Flanking bonus, but I am now unsure if that is just an assumption on my part.

Thanks!

Really sorry, but honestly

act out barfing at the table as they play?

Made me chuckle. 

I think Orcs and Goblins are by nature a bit juvenile (unit names, crazy randomness, card names, etc.) so the Vomit fits in my opinion.

Sorry, but it’s a bit too juvenile and gross for my tastes at least. Do you think there’s a way you could reskin that ability so that the mechanical effect is the same without encouraging players to act out barfing at the table as they play?

General Battleground: Fantasy Warfare Discussion / Re: Trolls suggestion

The Troll is already popular.  If it's usually on the field, does it need a Yellow Box upgrade and 1 rout check instead of almost infinite checks with Regeneration?  There's an idea that routing actually helps the troll since it can regenerate.

Trolls are popular, but I don't know that they show up on the table much.  A lot of people take them initially because they want to play them...but then end up putting them back in the box.

That said, we have the same concerns about "1 rout check and then they're fearless" being too much of a swing the other way.  I don't think that idea is going to make it through the design process.
