Re: Painting Horses

I used to do painting (in exchange for figures) for the late, great Peter Gilder. He showed me an amazing technique he used for horses. It was in the days when acrylics weren't so popular and most used oil-based Humbrol enamels. It involved liberally painting the horse's body with oil paint. Oil pai...

That's a later version of the playsheet! The one I've got doesn't have an entry for LCh at impact.

Playsheet error...

Whilst it's great to have playsheets, and the latest one looks great, there's a mistake on it which didn't exactly help me in my first club comp game against Dave Ruddock last night. The +1 impact POA for light chariots is missing. My Sea Peoples faced Dave's New Kingdom Egyptians. Safe in the knowl...

Re: Britcon 2018...

Without a confirmed release schedule we do not know if Book 3 will be out in time. And as there are no polearms in the existing V1/V2 lists it is impossible to predict which will remain heavy weapon and which will change. So what's wrong with allowing players to choose which type to use, just as th...

Re: Britcon 2018...

I say sadly because the lists I am considering will almost certainly feature polearms in their revised versions. Seems a bit of an oversight, given we're playing with V3 and the draft included an option for polearms when using the original lists. Comp organisers have made allowances for the new poi...

Britcon 2018...

With Britcon featuring Medieval this year and a deadline set for use of Book 3 of the lists it's highly possible we'll still be using the original lists. So what happens about polearms? The draft of V3 included an option for players to decide whether to use heavy weapon or polearm. Don't think the p...

Sliding when conforming...

There seems to be some confusion (at least in my experience) about conforming when in combat. I've had different responses from players/umpires in a situation where two bases fight two bases and all are in at least partial frontal contact. Some think they line up two v two frontally; others that you...

Re: A lament for Steppes...

I agree the new terrain system has reduced the variation in terrain density. Most tables seem to contain similar amounts of terrain. What I'm not sure of yet is what types of armies it favours. There is always some terrain for MF to hide in, but not enough for an army of entirely MF. The tables are...

Re: A lament for Steppes...

hopefully some Steppes will be seen Don't hold your breath! ☺ Perhaps we did see Steppes a little too often in V2. Anyone using a mounted army with them as an option would get a +2 on initiative, increasing the chances of them being used. But isn't virtually banning them altogether a bit of a knee ...

Re: A lament for Steppes...

Under V3 it will be a little more challenging Let me know if you ever manage to see Steppes in a comp game, Pete. I can't see it happening. V3's insistence on having to choose from your opponent's terrain and the lists removing massed LH from armies such as Bosporan, Parthian, etc tilts the balance...

A lament for Steppes...

We've been using the Beta and final version of V3 for some time at my club, MAWS, and I've yet to see a game that features Steppes. Has anyone else? I much prefer infantry armies but have some sympathy for those (even Dave R!) fond of cavalry armies. The best they can hope for is the two open spaces...

Re: Involuntary charging shock troops - formation change

“They may ONLY drop back a single base if they can ONLY REACH the enemy by doing so.”
Would this apply when the chargers had to drop back a base to, for example, avoid friends who were already in combat? And if the friends weren't, would they HAVE to burst through?

Re: Internal Overlaps (and conforming)...

2. Now for a different circumstance. Assume there are three cavalry BGs present: a BG of four bases in the centre (Cav B and C and the two bases behind them) and a two base BG of cav A and the base behind it, and another two base BG of Cav D and the base behind it. A bit puzzled by this, Graham, al...
