Game set up for Dortmund:

(Italian wars) french 1526-1549 (rbodleyscott) vs spanish-imperial 1534-1542 (Dortmund)

It would be rude to play it the other way round.

Hey guys, will be a little slow issuing /rec' challenges, buried under 3 feet of snow here. I have a 6 foot drift ontop my upper roof which I likely will need to go on up and get (once I'm properly fortified w liquid courage). Should be a good time :shock:

Not sure that the liquid courage thing is a good idea before engaging in such a task.

In my former life as a doctor, I treated an old gent who drank a bottle of his home-made parsnip wine, and then decided it would be a good idea to go out and photograph snow scenes. He then fell over on the snow and dislocated his shoulder.

However, thanks to the parsnip wine, I was able to put his should back in place without an anaesthetic!

Pick up your favourite army and arrange the game. There are a lot of games (14 for each player), so we'll play as fast as our duties allow us. :wink:

Hi Ian!

It seems that the password is incorrect. I've tried to put it in capitals too.

First results :



Vadim's catholic won against Hrothgar's Transylvanien : Transylvanien's army is a bit different to manage than the usual western-europe armies, first time for Hrothgar, bold choice but didnt pay off. I was also surprise to see my regular cav beating his armored hussard, also he allowed one of my kuirrasser to charge one of his bardych, not a good idea as they dont have pike.

Vadim's french finally won against a TYW's Spanish side : one word, cavalry. Hrothgar got maybe too many expensive units, he lost both flank pretty quickly and it was almost enough. His veteran and viejo were deadly but couldnt do the whole job by themselves.

Cav is now a game changer.

I am now playing my two games against Aryaman.
