QuoteIn FWC however I am likely to retain and even increase (in some cases) the numbers of compulsory units in a list ... as FWC allows for some very weird distortions in formations that can seriously bias a particular list. E.G. an army of all flyers when your opponent cannot have any AA ... a one-sided game-over game (not much fun)
Quote from: Ithoriel on 04 October 2020, 09:16:51 PMThe "x per thousand" limits were very useful for those of us whose games are never historical refights, whose units are entirely fictional and whose opponents are more at home with Eldar and Space Marines than anything WW2.
Quote from: Steve J on 04 October 2020, 09:07:45 PMI remember Nik Harwood mentioning to me that he felt Pete Jones was the least happy with these rules, for the reason mentioned above. On the old forum there was an AAR where, IIRC, the defenders were on an island surrounded by water with the attacker having no amphibious ability! Certainly no fun to be had there .
