Allied Contingents

Post by SteveI42 on Sat Oct 24, 2015 3:32 pm

Some lists allow an Allied Contingent under the command of its own commander. This is great and proves to be no problem.

However if playing with 1/2 maximum limitations (eg 28mm 350pts) are all the maximums for the Allied Contingent halved or does the most numerous remain at full amount?
e.g. Early Imperial Roman List: German Alies: 2-6 FP
Would this become 1-3 or 1-6?

I haven't seen any information Steve on the Forum that allows the most numerous contingent to be remain at full amount. The halving of the lists does make using Allied Contingents a problem at times because the numbers are so small.

I suspect this comes from a particular reading of page 4 of the amendments pdf, GC.

"In 350pts game don’t halve the maxima of the more numerous troop type(s) (the bulk of the army)"

It does not specify in enough detail what this actually means. Saying "type(s)" implies all sorts of potential readings.

It is an issue that has come up in Australian competitions with no definitive answer. The local ruling was that it applied to the most numerous type. That is, the sole unit (Main or Allied)with the most available numbers. There are many problems with that approach but it was simple.

Thanks starkadder. I don't think I was very clear on my response to Steve. I don't think there is any Allied Contingent in the lists that qualifies for the most numerous troop type. So the answer is for the Germans, as you say, is 1-3.

Interestingly, this rule only comes up occasionally in our games.

Thanks guys. I had already come to the conclusion that you have reinforced. It just seemed wrong that an Ally doesn't note really give a half decent continent, especially where warband types are concerned
