Deployment Area and table size

Post by stecal on Sun Apr 10, 2016 2:33 pm

Why was the deployment area in Baroque not measured from the table center line like impetus?  This was the best method for dealing with varying table depths & figure scales.  With a fixed 4 BU deployment  increasing the depth, but not the deployment area  mostly hurts artillery range and infantry move/fire as the center "no mans land" gets larger and larger.

For 25mm, because that is what I am interested in.   It seems the intent was for inf & med artillery to out of range at game start so I tried to adjust to keep that distance ratio.

on a "normal" 120 x 180mm  (4x6')  table each deployment area is 4 BU & the center area 5.3 BU

150mm (5') deep  gives us a center area of 8.6 BU.  I suggest the deployment area be increased to 5.5 BU to leave the center a reasonable 5.6 BU

180mm deep (6') gives us a whopping 12 BU center.  I'd increase each army deployment to 7 BU, leaving a center of 6 BU.
