Re: Skirmishers shattering Elephants

We classify stands into buckets. Everything must go into a bucket; nothing can go into two buckets. We turn the infinitely varied and complex historical world (about which we have very limited information) into a discrete set of 16-18 stand types. (...) So what are you asking? I am asking for a des...

Re: Skirmishers shattering Elephants

Longer-ranged weapons (all Skirm have slings or bows or crossbows or in rare cases handgonnes; LtFt/Raiders nothing that is longer-ranged than thrown or melee) (...) understood (...) training specifically in skirmishing (duh). So LtFt/Raiders are fighting in their ranks and do not have any skirmish...

Skirmishers shattering Elephants

In my last game playing Later Carthos in Spain versus Iberians, I lost all of my three elephant stands in close combats versus enemy skirmishers. My opponent had cleverly managed to have an overlap in each of these fights, thus enhancing his chances to shatter my ellies. While I ungrudgingly acknowl...

Re: Proposed 15mm Sumerian Range (by Eureka)

My 15mm miniature armies collection is very low on biblical era representatives. This being the perfect excuse to order another bunch of minis, I have pledged to buy figures for a Gilgamesh Era Sumerian Triumph! army. Hoping very much this range is going into production.

happy new year,

Providing overlap

A question about providing overlaps: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TjnO32DorMU/WftAC2NjBmI/AAAAAAAADZA/YG-csJMqs0osI-a6rXmKC73IW-9L9AwrgCKgBGAs/s640/Triumph_overlap_question.JPG C attacks B in three different situations. In all three cases the question is: Does A provide an overlap to C? The overlaps r...

Forming a column

DBA 2.2 allowed forming a column as a group move: "A group move can include reducing frontage to form such a column (...)". I do not find any reference to the forming of a column in the tactical movement section of the Triumph! rules. I assume that in Triumph! a column must be formed by in...

Template for the setup phase of a Triumph! game

Setting up a game of Triumph! is not a big deal, but for your first few games a scrap of paper and a pencil will come in handy. As an aide memoire and to support the setup phase of the game and for keeping score I have created a small template (half a page of A4). You can find it here: https://minim...
