Re: SIGNUP for Chariot Supremacy! Campaign Theme (Cold Wars: March 2018)

I would like to be a Hittite or Mycenaen; I have armies for both; or Middle Assyrian and Mitanni as alternates. I better sign up for something before everything is gone. And I could still be a viceroy of Kush if no one else wants it.....

Re: January 2018 Rules Update

Shooting rules were one of the worst aspects of DBA, producing unrealistic maneuvering to get the corners of two or 3 shooters in range of an enemy target even when other targets were partly in the way or closer to the shooters.

Re: Pike supporting Pike-time for a change?

DK, I have no objection either way. They were my pikes that were getting hit at all angles, bravely holding the end of the line. The rule about not turning to face on contact just had this as an interesting an perhaps unanticipated consequence. Just seemed strange to the 4 of us when it happened. A ...

Blade1 pikea^ pikeb^B xxxxxxL xxxxxxA xxxxxxD xxxxxxE xxxxxx2 The X's are place holders to make up for outlook's annoying habit of getting rid of spaces at the beginning of my diagrams.

Should Elite foot be able to follow up on a recoil?

Playing as Swiss with an elite foot general. Presumably the most skilled halberdiers and two handed swordsmen fighting to break open holes in the enemy line. Swiss pike push back enemy. Great.
