Scythed Chariots - what are they good for?...

In the recent Hills Have Eyes tournament there was an option to take scythed chariots against the Arab camel/irregular army. I figured, if there was ever a chance for them to shine this would be it. What we know: - They were intended as a Terror weapon (would Arabs have seen them often enough to cou...

Peloponnesian War

Hi All

I'm looking at some good reading on the Peloponnesian War.

Donald Kagans books get some good amazon reviews, would readers here consider this the best tome on the subject?

Cheers

Re: Scenario description info - Tanagra 457BC

What is the way to progress scenarios to the community file?
Presumably they need to be of a specific standard.

I used to churn out a few scenarios for SSG back in the day - i did more of that than playing the game in the end, it became quite addictive.

Re: Scenario description info - Tanagra 457BC

If anyone want to take a look at this and see how I can fix it - or make any suggestions that would be great.

I'm at the stage where I think I will be able to follow changes you make to the text files.

Div 1

General Shapur (Armenian) defeats Aetius39 (Lydian) 61:49

A very vicious battle with near collapse of both armies with 2 mid game cascade morale checks. Things seemed to be in the balance all thru. Thankfully a few lat game rallies helped me too.

Re: Chaos Tourney IV

Div 1
General Shapur (Viking) draws with Challange 1(Byzantine) 5:0 (both sides agreed to end the pain)

Sadly a game of infantry vs horse archers. Although the vikings did take out the heroic enemy CinC and his entourage (surely that counts for something).

Re: The Rally Point (discussion, questions and some highbrow philosophising)

A small suggestion for the next season. As you know, we all pick 4 armies and priority goes to those at the top of the list. When there is a duplicate choice the later listed player gets his second choice etc. It may happen that in rare cases a player has all his choices voided if lower ranked playe...
