Re: Avars vs Gepids - Kingdom Con San Diego game

Jim has gathered a much bigger group for Swordpoint at Kublacon, one of the major Caifornia cons, later this month. I'm crossing my fingers that I can still make it up.

Re: Avars vs Gepids - Kingdom Con San Diego game

We had a fair amount of interest. I had to schedule the game Saturday evening after the Bolt Action tournament which unfortunately was too late for some folk. I did get a few old WAB players to come out and try it. A lot of people talking to me about Swordpoint and how it plays during the con though...

Avars vs Gepids - Kingdom Con San Diego game

I put on a participation game last week at our local San Diego gaming con, Kingdom Con. I went with a dark age battle, Gepids and Avars, at 1000 points. The Gepids were based on the Ostrogoth list with a few modifications (the addition of foot warriors). Lists were: Avars - Fully kitted out Nobles, ...

Barding and order

I see on P36 that cavalry is default open order unless barded. So if barded cavalry are not open order and definitely not skirmish order, that makes barded cavalry close order? Meaning they get the +1 Close Order Troops combat resolution. Am I interpreting that right? I'm just looking at my Seleucid...

Re: Elephant Terror

After re-reading the section on Terror and 'Used to' Elephants, I wanted to make sure I got things right since we use a lot of elephants in our games here. Cavalry have the potential of having to make two terror tests in one turn. First if the elephant is within 8" and second if the elephant ch...

Re: Syrian Wars players try out downloaded lists

I figured I'd make that question it's own post in the rules section so it didn't get missed in the shuffle here. Sorry if I got both our units running on a bad rule call, Jeff! I was reading a post here a while back about elephants fighting Romans I think and there was a comment in there "after...

Elephant Terror

Do elephants cause terror in infantry? The two places that reference terror caused by elephants seem to be in conflict about it. The terror in mounted troops only argument comes from the elephant section under Terror (p41) saying elephants cause terror in mounted troops and no mention of infantry. T...

Re: Cavalry Combined Formation

That's a pretty big change from what is in the rule book. I'd suggest adding it to the errata webpage.

Re: Ostrogoths

I had a quick question on Ostrogoth cavalry. The table has Cavalry with a D of 4 (same as the Elite Cavalry). The equipment section has Cavalry equipped with spear and shield, which would give them a D of 5. I'm just checking to see which is correct.
