Re: 2018 Tournament

Wow, some impressive victories there.

I believe there are 3 games still to finish; both games between Snugglebunnies and TG, 1 game between Pantherboy and TGM.

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

I really like the current format, it leads to battles with unusual interesting armies and occasionally unusual terrain, but I never had a battle where the terrain killed the game. The only change that is needed is a tightening up of the timing of challenges. I think all challenges must be made withi...

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

A very very small fact finding mission dispatching to Malbrok to ascertain the financial and moral benefits of adding it to the benevolent Irish community has returned a rather negative report. The area is similar to Ireland with vast areas of swamp and forest which could lead to agricultural richne...

Re: 2018 Tournament

Hi guys,

sorry for the mistake on the Scots army, its the earlier one with spears. Much more exciting battle than the one with huge blocks of pike trudging forward relentlessly.

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

Alan, my apologies, I didn't realise we both tried to claim Algeria. I have set up the battle as we might as well play it out and maybe we will get it finished before the next move is due. I've stuck to the rules as far as pot luck armies, version3, and medium size, but have gone for agricultural as...

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

Alan, Much as I would like to defend Algeria I am unable to as I dont own it. It is a little late in the campaign season for me as I am off on glorious military adventures in the great southern continent recently discovered by the Dutch. But I am more than happy to issue and receive challenges next ...

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

Dilly McDilly,

we have graciously called out our protective forces to defend Allemania. The battle has been set up using our gallant Prussians of the same period as your idiotic French.
So to War, and may the Best German win,

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

Dilly McDilly I will happy accept a challenge for Germany but you must pick an extra nations army not tercio to salvo. I only have v2 of extra nations so tell me which army you are using to ruthlessly crush our peace loving German vassals and we will raise our patriotic defenders.

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

Following discussion with our esteemed colleague the Lion of the North we have adjusted the army we are invading Persia with to one closer in time, namely German Peasants 1524-1526. This is the same army we have declared to be invading Malbrok, the battle for which we are still waiting for the Divin...

Re: Favorite Army

I love Scots border raiders, the earlier army. There is normally 1 compulsory average cavalry lance, the rest of the army is light horse with light lance, crossbow and sword. If you have a fairly open battlefield they are deadly. Very mobile so you decide where the fighting takes place, has heaps of...

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

I hereby challenge Greetings44 for the country of Persia, I will be using Prussian 1649-1674. I would have preferred 30 years war imperialist but for some reason my V3 has disappeared from my computer and V2 doesn't have them listed. I also challenge the Great Dods for Malbrok using German Peasants ...

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

In the spirit of true Gaelic brotherhood, we have deigned to allow Dilly O'Dilly formerly King of Ireland to possess Scotland as a sub-kingdom of our benevolent rule. The tithe to be paid for this is one haggis to be delivered in the depth of winter, and the red-haired virgin maid who will deliver i...

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

The forces of colonial imperialism which have held Ireland in thrall for too long have been defeated. The shackles were broken by the collectivized peasantry of the Scottish lowlands using traditional spears, in association with the free rangers of the Scottish highlands under their locally elected ...

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

The battle for Switzerland is over. The initial crunch of the elite Swiss pike was impressive, I was up 32% to 0%. Then the wheels slowly came off; 2 of his routing pike blocks rallied and his gendarmes got into the rear of my pike blocks. He clawed it back to 40% to 40% and we stayed within 5% of e...

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

Gentlemen, our forces in Germany have stoutly defended their homeland from a horde of Persian invaders. Their modern equipment of firearms for their foot and composite bows did not save them from stout pikes wielded by stout peasants. They maneuvered speedily to line a stream with their foot flanked...
