Question regarding scenario "406 Anthony's Siege Train (36 BC)"

Do Baggage Wagons give support to normal units like AUX or MI? Can they ignore 1 flag when adjacent to 2 Baggage Wagons?

This has been asked at some point also in the BGG forum. The rules state that Baggage Wagons are not units. They act more as movable terrain features. SO I think the answer to your question is no.

the BGG article
www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/476955/baggage-wagons-and-support

the overwhelming concensus there was Wagons give no support. So as GM I'm going to rule it that way for this tournament.
There is no official answer I'm aware of.

Thank you Mark. It can be also useful to mention that Baggage Wagons can be ordered only with:

- Section cards
- Leadership cards
- Order Mounted
- Mounted Charge

and they can't be ordered as "unit of your choice".

Round 1

: 402 Carrhae (53 BC)
Mark McG (Parthians)
6 Banners won
24 Blocks lost

plainscape (Romans)
7 Banners won
32 Blocks lost

This was a very tense game that really could have gone either way. The Romans were blessed by the gods with 5 line commands that helped to squeeze the Parthians out of the center and even managed to kill their leader, Surena. While taking heavy casualties, the Romans delivered back just as hard, taking up more and more space. In one last desperate move, the Parthians charges Cassius's position in hopes of breaking the army. But again Fortuna was with the Romans and Cassius was eliminate both attackers and won the day.

I had a lot of luck in this scenario and still almost lost. Good game!

I watched your game guys and it was really pleasure to watch. 5 line commands and 3 Spartacus, close end, with twist in result in last two attacks... Epic game!

It becomes very difficult to unwind a tournament once it is running, and I don't want to have to restart simply to let players in. I'll look to see if there is any possibility over the weekend, and the difficulty is mainly set by how many games are already played, but resizing a running tournament is far harder than making a new tournamnet

No problem. Great explanation...I expected just "NO". :) Glad to play a spoiler if you need one.

OK, looking at expanding the tournament to 10 players, it is possible with the single match reported. Have any been played and not reported?
Would it be a hardship to revise the match schedule adding a player to each side, such that any arranged matches between opponents would still happen, but maybe a different scenario?
I need some quick answers please.
