PostPosted: Thu Jan 07, 2016 3:55 pm    Post subject: Barbarian Rules

The following rules apply, in the case of Rule 1, to all Irregular close/loose order infantry in all lists in Dark Age Warrior and, in the case of Rules 2, 3 and 4, except where expressly stated not to apply to such troops, which troops are referred to here as Barbarian Infantry.

1. Barbarian Infantry may march on segment 3 if desired but take a fatigue point (FP) for doing so.

2. A body of Barbarian Infantry with 9 or more elements fights with 1/3 of the figures in any 3rd and/or 4th ranks directly behind those eligible to fight if the body meets all the following requirements: The 3rd and 4th ranks fight as “Other Weapons” but get no other Weapon Factors. They do count all Tactical Factors. In determining figures fighting in any 3rd and/or 4th ranks, add the number of figures in both ranks combined, take 1/3 of the combined total, and then round up.
a. Charged or countercharged this bound or contacted opponents in a converted charge in the previous bound;
b. The 1st and 2nd ranks are ALL armed with a close combat weapon other than SA and/or IPW;
c. The 3rd and 4th ranks each contain at least one element armed with a close combat weapon other than SA and IPW;
d. Does not contain any element with 2HCT and/or with HTW combined with another weapon; and
e. Contains at least one element of C morale grade class or better troops.

3. A body of Barbarian Infantry with 9 or more elements is eager while any friendly body that does not include LC and/or LI within 240 paces is charging in the current bound or already in H-T-H combat and not broken or shaken.

4. As an exception to Warrior 6.166.A, a body of Barbarian Infantry with 9 or more elements not in Shieldwall may counter-charge impetuous foot, if willing or with at least one Irr A element in the front frank, provided they are otherwise eligible (i.e., not exhausted/shaken or demoralized, etc.). A counter-charge by such troops may be (but is not required to be, even with Irr A troops) impetuous if eager or if there are any Irr A in the front rank.

And yes, these apply to Dark Age Warrior but were incorporated into the new version of that book.
