Re: A bunch of combat situations

Yes - looks like one big combat to me.

If they are are all lined up properly then the ones on the end should be at least 50% engaged.

All tournaments reinstated with immediate effect

All we have to do is print off a Dominic Cummings mask and we are sorted. These masks are freely available on most social media feeds. The fact that we might be cramming a load of people into a confined space with poor ventilation is beside the point. Even better if you can bring a child with you (m...

Re: Playing Swordpoint during lockdown via video call

We have not gone quite as sophisticated as this. One person provides models for both armies and sets up the terrain. Then using zoom or other video - share the board and then discuss where units are being moved and the intent - do you wish to be in charge range. I sometimes have to let my opponent k...

Re: Warband armies in the classical period - choices choices

Hi Lero, thanks for your insights. Do you find units with only 4 bases in open order are a little brittle?

I must admit the warband army that I would take if I could would be Franks, unfortunately their starting date is just too late, although they do overlap with a number of lists in the book.

Re: Warband armies in the classical period - choices choices

Having just finished painting some chariots I would try out a list with them in it first of all either Ancient British or Gallic. I know Mike had some joy with his 1st Armoured division in his Ancient British Army. If I was going without chariots I would consider an open order army with throwing spe...

Warband armies in the classical period - choices choices

So, you are thinking to yourself – lockdown is the right time for a new army and you are attracted to a Warband Army out of the Classical Army supplement – the question is which warband army is right for you? Let’s dive in and think about the different armies you could have. There are lots of good t...

Mamluks - Halqa and Halberds

Is there any special reason why dismounted Halqa halberd upgrades are 4 points a base when the other dismounted units in the list the halberd upgrade is only 2 points a base?

Re: Levy - anyone found a use for them yet?

That is what I was thinking. 24 points for 12 bases of rising out - close order = 5 hots for discouragement,12 hits to take a break test - other units can re-roll cohesion tests when they break/flee. Could block of a flank - could hold up cavalry - most infantry would be making them take a test (whi...

Levy - anyone found a use for them yet?

I am not talking about the levy that can be in phalanx or good stuff like that. I am talking about the Infantry Levies in the Early Medieval Hungarian list - 3 points a base or the Rising out from the Later Irish list as 2 points a base. 12 bases costing 24 points! Has anyone ever used them? If so h...
