Hi All,

Next week, the 24th is the 3rd Round of the Bolt Action Escaltion League. This rounds level is 1,000 points with no restrictions. The player pack will be out shortly & I would like to try & gauge who will be coming on Monday night so I can make out some match-ups.  If you can let me know ASAP if you will be there or not that will be invaluable.

Many thanks.

rules question - in this scenario do reserves come on into your deployment quarter or anywhere along your long table edge?

Anywhere along your long table edge. It's a standard scenario.

Quote from: Rob Farley on June 20, 2019, 10:26:50 pmAnywhere along your long table edge. It's a standard scenario.

Just had a look at scenarios and above and have 2 queries?

1. The base rules for reserves coming only say 'units in reserve can be ordered onto the table with an advance or run'. Other than specific scenario's the assumption is they come on 'your long table edge'. In this scenario it requires you to further pick a quarter of your table edge, in which you deploy. It can certainly be argued that reserves should also follow that in this scenario.

2. The other player gets the 'opposite quarter'. Does this mean directly opposite or diagonally opposite? (Or either?)

I played the scenario a couple of months ago and we took it diagonally opposite and reserves coming on from the chosen quarter. As we went through the game and at the end we did discuss whether or not this was correct, but came to no conclusion. I have checked the latest FAQ, downloaded from Warlord this morning and there is no clarification. Personally I have no issue either which way, but it would be helpful for Martin to rule for Monday.

You also pick a long table edge at the same time you pick a quarter. I agree that it would make sense for reserve troops to come on from your quarter rather than your long edge but there's nothing in the scenario to say they do. I've played this scenario at multiple tournaments and that's always how it's been played.

And it's diagonally opposite corners.

If Martin wants to change that, that's up to him of course. It's balanced either way.

Hi All,

Rob's correct. Long table edge, opposite quarters.  The rule book doesn't clarify in words but there is a diagram - Scenario 12.  If you wish to play coming on in your own quarter I don't mind as long as you both play the same rules.  Also, bear in mind there is no outflanking in this scenario.

Cheers all.
