  • Army Set-Up

    Armies set up 12" away from the middle line of the table.
    Question: What is the maximum distance away from the middle line of the table that a unit can be set-up? 24"? 100"? 1000000000000000000"?

    The answer depends on the size of the board the game is played on and on the "length" of the unit you intend to place. Normally (6'x4' board), the "back" of the unit can be at a maximum distance 24".

      This depends on the table used.

      Should you use a 200km x 200km real estate to play KoW in 1:1 ( ), you could set up your troops anywhere, but at least 12" away from the middline.

      There is no limit.

        Also - not that the official rule is "more than 12" from the middle line". This "more than" is very important, as it means no first turn shooting for 24" ranged weapons/spells without moving.

          If you were to play KOW in a 1:1 scale, the original game being at 1:72, you would then have to be distant from more than 864" of the middle line aka 43.891 meters distant from your opponnent (which also is the effective range of bow in a real scale kow world).

            The set up rules say to deploy your units on "that side of the battlefield", implying that your units need to be deployed on the battlefield (which is assumed to be the 6'x4' surface).
            Which is also something that the rules writers can reasonably assume that you could figure out yourself without them having to explicitly say it.
