Re: Classical Antiquity: arrange your matches here

This is a challenge for MikeK. It looks like you are the last one I have left to play, setting up a challenge for you with my Ancient Britons, PW MikeK.
Good Luck to you, see you there.

Re: Siege Battles

Having looked at these rules again I think there are a few things that need to be added. BG's can only have one rank on the walls, as already stated, but additional ranks can be placed in the courtyard behind them, in contact with the wall. The confer no benefits (POA's or dice) to the defenders exc...

Re: Siege Battles

I am aware of this, I have fallen into the trap of being raised playing games that use oil. I first read about boiling water being used in horrible histories years ago, and heated sand was used at the sieges of tyre and carthage, to name a few. Boiling oil is a gaming term used to define hot substan...

Re: Siege Battles

Not much chance of a playtest I'm afraid, College work, Farm work and no opponents are a sorry mix.

Siege Battles

Alright, I don't mind admitting that part of the reason I enjoyed wargaming when I first got into it was the prospect of siege battles. We have all seen the siege of Helms Deep, and I can remember spending many happy hours, with a bunch of cardboard boxes roughly resembling a long wall, a load of el...

Re: UNdead ?

I was of two minds whether they should ignore one of the hit modifiers for cohesion tests ( such as 2 more received than inflicted) on the one hand they are uncaring towards the casualties, on the other it does in part represent the inroads made by the enemy into their formation.

Re: UNdead ?

One more quick thought to add to this is that cohesion tests do in part take into account morale in the BG, so maybe undead should get a modifier to these to represent their total uncaring attitude towards death. Maybe always counting as having their flank secure and having rear support?
