Yes, certainly. Even if they do not actually make contact in the battle their imminent arrival can influence how the opposing side acts in the battle. I have played this a few times now and it is really well-balanced, particularly if you are prepared to be adventurous as the Byzantines.

Yes, nearly Tony. There are ten of them now! I am doing a couple of play-tests with Max so that the gameplay is reasonably balanced when I put it on. It is actually quite a complex battle and getting the starting positions right is a bit tricky.

This is an interesting scenario Tony and I have played it several times multiplayer. Do you still intend to add George Paleologus as a leader to make the presence of the Byzantine troops on the peninsula more of a credible threat to the Norman rear? This would add a bit more balance and tension to the scenario. Thanks for the great scenarios you have been producing. I have downloaded all of them and enjoy them a lot.
