Re: Devizes Attack 2019 - 20th & 21st July 2019

I shall refrain from commenting about the Roman lack of imagination.... I am assuming the correct spelling of these players is as follows: Martyn Simpson Steve Murton Micky Woods Not sorted out the exact details for the bye - but will be a randomised first round draw. The player receiving the bye wi...

Bow* at impact

Looking at the muromachi list, the "Bushi and followers with high proportions of followers" are classed as Medium Foot, Bow*, Polearm. Troops will get 3 dice per base at impact. But page 90 states that "Light foot or light horse and medium foot with Bow* Lose 1 dice per 2". So therefore if the Murom...

Re: Norse-Irish List (Book 2 page 123)

Potentially yes, however there is a minimum of 8 of the light spear as well as the heavy weapon, so you would need 8 of them as well.

Re: Roll Call 2019

I don't think game times have been published as yet - I think 3 hour games are enough, so would the following be OK:

Sat:
Game 1: 9:30 - 12:30
Game 2: 13:30 - 16:30
Sun:
Game 3: 9:00 - 12:00
Game 4: 13:00 - 16:00

Be interesting to see the two Sassanids to see how similar they are. I'm assuming mine will be miles better than Terry's. If not and I play him I'll just have to rely on dice.
Relying on your dice seems to be your only tactic (although it does seem to work !)
If it ain't broke....

Re: Roll Call 2019

Let us just hope that the person carrying out the draw does so in a fair and consistent manner.

Now, let me think... Who is going to be doing the draw?

I'm liking the look of all those Nikeforians. North Africans could be tricksy. Norse Irish could take a lot of killing.... But not as much as the Sciri ....
