    How do you keep your rules straight?

    This is intended to be half-joking/half-serious. O&G have a relatively high number of units who have special rules. Moreover, many of their units have rules that aren't included in the BRB, such as armed-to-the-teef, squig herd rules, fanatics and netters, animosity, waagh, squig hopper movement, etc... It seems like an awful lot to keep track of. I played against an O&G army yesterday, and I had to keep reminding the guy to move his squig hoppers and giant squig.

    So, how do frequent O&G players remember all the wierd rules in their armies? Any tips?

    I don't play OG, but I use markers with my armies to remind me of stupidity tests, terror, and the like. I think a checklist could help, too.

    I'm one of those unfortunate souls cursed with the ability to always remember stuff without trying to.

    The army summary sheets can help you, if you remember to keep referring to them, and after a while, when you've played with your army enough, the rules just stick in your head.

    It's all about repetition.

    I have the same problem. I know most of the rules for most of the armies in 40k and fantasy.

    My one blind spot was hobgoblins in my CD army, animosity was just never something I was used to rolling for, so I wrote "animosity" on my army list and usually had it to hand. Maybe even have a separate card for each unit in your army.

    Aids like that, and repetition as Steve says, go a long way to helping you crack the rules of an army.

    Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.

    Sadly, I still have a hard time remembering all the special rules...and it's been 4+ years I've been playing them! :cry:

    But, as mentioned before, repetition does help!
