Thanks - I will get the variant out with the Kingdom of Acre taking part too later this month. Will mix things up a bit!

OK Pete, back from holiday next week will get it done then. Glad you are enjoying it. Are those ships ready yet!?

Glad you enjoyed Pete. I kind of like battles like this (as you can probably tell), where everything is about to go horribly wrong and one side has to pull their fat out of the fire! Reminds me of life .... :lol:

Hi Pete, will have a look at this - good suggestion. The pass was narrow - but I will widen it a little. After all, this is only a representation - the real battle was fought over something like seven miles, so I cannot pretend to be mirroring reality here anyway, so will go for playability. Will le...

Yes, I agree Pete - it would be good to have rout points there. Circle the wagons for the middle group would be a good strategy!

Hi Pete, am on holiday at the moment but can very easily and reasonably fix that when I get back. These troops met up with part of the garrison led by the commander in charge of Dyrrachion, George Paleologus. After slogging it around to the battle they arrived when it was over and George had to with...

My pleasure - and the Byzantines should be pretty tough. They had a pretty good army and for this show the Emperor had brought the whole lot with him - including the Varangians and two of the three palace cavalry regiments. One reason the losing the battle turned out to be such a problem for Alexios...

Thanks - glad you enjoyed it! It might be possible to make the impassable area of the hill passable. However, in reality it is a very steep hill, so it probably would not have been attempted by the cavalry. I give the Sultan 10 out of 10 for setting this situation up. He had Baibars bait the Mongols...

Hi Pete/Maximus - done. The two sides have been swapped around - it was, as Maximus suggested, easy enough. All units had to have the values for Nation and Side changed (the 2s to 1s and the 1s to 2s). Then I just needed to swap the sides around in the scenario details and voila. Thanks guys, especi...

'Ain Jalut, 1260 AD

As promised, a first bash at the battle of 'Ain Jalut. I have adapted the army lists used from ones available for the tabletop version of Field of Glory as they seemed about right. I have divided the Mongol army into a full strength and a part strength Tuman - if you think that what Kitbuqa had was ...

Some tinsel for Christmas - have re-read the account of the battle given in the Alexiad and have added some commander names to units I have not counted as having generals, just for a bit of decoration!

Building would be good - though it would also be good if they could be occupied. There were battles where buildings played a role in this way - Dyrrachion was one. However, I guess that is when things become complicated, as we would then want to set buildings on fire ....
