Re: Converting hits to kills.

Jim, the lower the defence factor the better. So a large shield is 5 add light armour it becomes 4 and so on. I don't have the rules with me, but there is a table somewhere that shows this.

Daylami - costings

Was looking at Ghaznavid List and noted Daylami - were 20 points - for C8, Shield, spear, warband, shieldwall, open order or I could use troops from the Arab Caliphate list where Daylami are 17 points if you take them in open order and all the other attributes are the same. The only difference I can...

Vikings - at Warfare 2018

Warfare 2018, was organised by Reading Wargames Club and held in November 2018. It was 1,000 points from the Dark Ages book.

Re: Falling back on enemy skirmishers question

They can fight, they are only destroyed/flee if they lose the combat so that they have a give ground result, that they cannot comply with due to the proximity of enemy troops.

It is quite feasible if the dice go their way that they win the combat.

Re: Elephants

I think the only way they could get a re-roll is if they were veteran, as that allows them to re roll one set of dice during the game, and this can be for cohesion tests.

Re: Elephants

All troop types need to take cohesion tests if charged by elephants or if they want to charge an elephant.

Elephants are formed, the only time they can stand and fight is if they are in difficult terrain when the ellie charges.

Re: I dont; understand multi-unit combat resolution

Game 1 A is not part of the combat, but is in LoB. B and C lose the combat by 7 (11-4) and then apply the LoB rules. C loses by (7/2) = 3.5 round up to 4 - take a break test and if passed fall back B loses by (7/3) = 2.33 round up to 3 - fallback A as it is not actually in the combat but is in LoB r...
