400 point army with 3 generals is a little odd. 1 side has 26 BP the other 21 BP.

Albanian vs Tartar.

I like them alot, completely different feel, plus get to fight on maps that I normally never encounter.

But that is nothing new - if you fight with 700 points of 100 Years War English vs. Welsh you end up with MUCH more of a disparity in number of BGs.

What were the extra 5 BGs? Archers? Medium infantry - non-Drilled?

Mainly bow and they had much cheaper mounted. The mix was odd, since superior mounted in a 400 pt list should have 2 generals at most. They had 3. They other team had 3 also I think. Just mix seemd odd based on the point levels.

Wow - 3 generals. Way too many. A CinC (Field) and one Sub (Field) should do it.

My opponent had the same issues, so its all good. It should be great against the computer, since the AI players needs a bit of help.

Hi, with quick battles you can not play with two armies of different books right?

Also not every army is at disposal?

You can issue challenges the same way you do for normal dag battles, either limit it to one book or open up to any book. Only some armies are represented in the quick battles, and the forces are fixed, not randomly generated.

Works the same way! (plus loading up a battle vs the ai is the only way to get a peek at what each armies forces are made up of. )

On single player. If you choose a different book for the AI it still shows the armies of the book you picked for the human player.
Did you try it?
