Base to base = corner to corner?


Recommended Posts

In reading the base to base section I did not see anywhere that says corner to corner counts. There is a picture in the support section that shows three dwarves fighting and gaining support and one of them is corner to corner. Does corner to corner count for base to base? I seem to recall in the 1st edition book it was specifically stated and clarified that it counted but I don't see anything in this edition.

 

thanks in advance.

I really tried to allow round bases as options in Warlord 2. I almost had it too, but the sticky wicket was the AoE rules. There would have been a clear advantage to using round bases over square bases, and all existing players may have felt it necessary to re-base their entire armies.

 

The picture of the dwarves fighting the cyclops was meant to illustrate that even corner to corner contact counted. ::):

I haven't read the 2nd edition rules yet (My book should be here next Tuesday) But If the AoE is like 1st edition, where is the advantage? Center point to center point on Area of Effect should have rendered base size and shape meaningless? Now I'm curious what the rules are in 2nd edition for AoE.

 

 

and DAAAAAAAAANG... I've been putting everything on round bases because of my rpg addiction and previous round based models.

 

However, I think I have a solution. I'll work on a write up or video on it in case anyone else wants to use it if they made the same mistake I did by using round bases.

There are a whole lot of things that have changed but for starters , Area of Effect now means that it just has to cover the base .

You shold also look here to view a pinnned topic on the subject of changes . ::D:

I feared that was the case. Oh well. I still want to play the new edition.

 

I have a solution if anyone else needs one for temporary conversion of round to square bases using dirt cheap high powered tiny magnets and 25mm non-slotted square bases. The cost for conversion comes out to under 50 cents a model. Not bad to get the best of both worlds (that is if you like round bases)

 

I'll work on getting together a video for explanation of the conversion.
