Re: Seleucid Army List

Interesting option Martin. As you would expect I am hanging out for the Pontic List!

Cheers

Re: Seleucid Army List

Thanks Martin. Xyston zounds right - remember a game of WAB eons ago where my Companions always hit after their Kontos armed Saka opponents. Fortunately their heavy armour saved them from too much harm.

Re: Seleucid Army List

Quite so Keith - gave me the 'push' to re-read the elephant rules which is no bad thing. Will have another game - 1000 points this time - after XMAS.

Martin - Kontos for Seleucid heavy cavalry/cataphracts? No option for Seleucid elephant crew to have a pike armed chappie?

Re: Seleucid Army List

Quite so Petel, forgot that about the longer weapon striking first! Not a great fan of the WAB wedge rule - still made up some suitable movement trays so they could come out of the drawer.......... Keith - I thought there had been a previous post by Martin confirming 4 attacks for Sasanid elephants,...

Re: My 29mm basing work a arround?

Many of my cavalry are based for other Rules - 3 to a 75mm base so was interested in your solution. Thanks. Basing is such a vexed issue - will have to go back to single/double bases for cavalry in future. Infantry are fine for the most part as other Rules I use have 2/4 figures to a base.

Re: Seleucid Army List

Martin Thanks for the Seleucid list - was interested to read that some 'teaser' lists were being published. Will be interested to get the Classical book next year. Question about the heavy cavalry - while there is no difference in the effect of spear/kontos, for accuracy should they not have kontos ...

Romans leave Dacia

Had our first game - 500 points only. Unfortunately the official Dacian war photographer was absent so no pictures. Please to say the sorry remnants of the Roman advance guard were sent scurrying back across the border. Couple of comments: Dacians will go back to WAB sized formations - 8 base warban...

Re: Dacians

Scott I was thinking along those lines - will try it out in our game today. Not sure how the Dacians will fare against Early Romans - within 500 points I elected to go with some Minor Chieftains to boost the Warbands rather than Sarmatian cavalry. Running Bastarnae cavalry instead. Found this refere...

Re: Dacians

That's what I thought. Thanks. Interesting question with the falx nutters, did they even carry a shield? Swap throwing spear for a falx - arguable they keep the shield. Of course when they charge shieldless they have no defence value as they are unarmoured - whether from pila or sword is immaterial!...
