Celtic rabble

Salutations, gentlefolk ! Acquired, cheaply, earlier this year, a pile of Essex 15mm figures - Gauls, Ancient Brits, Picts, other Dark Ages era - and am painting up a few Triumph armies. Am thinking that The Men Who Wrote The Rules meant this yout as the archtypical Rabble figure https://image.ibb.c...

Re: NJ Con X - June 8-9 in Edison, New Jersey - Prereg Open

Salutations, again !

Unfortunately, don't think myself qualified to referee a Triumph tournament. Maybe in the future.

Yrs, John

Re: NYC area players?

Salutations, gentlefolk !

I'm in Newark, carless, but if NJ Transit or PATH or MTA or SEPTA gets there and back ...

There's a goodly bunch of historical miniature players at Maplewood Hobby - maplewoodhobby.com - usually get together Thursday nights, occasional Tuesday afternoons.

Yours, John

Re: New Shooting Rules

Salutations, gentlefolk ! Noted the bad news for balistarii in the new rules. A - Artillery beating Elephants no longer leaves them shattered and dead; now only makes them recoil. B - Artillery doubling Horse Bow in open terrain makes them panic, no longer destroys them. (though a Panic move by Hors...

Re: New Shooting Rules

Salutations, gentlefolk ! May I suggest that you probably want to rewrite part 68.1 (top of left column, p.26). Besides not incorporating the new shooting rules, it also refers to "being shot at by... a stand of mounted troops" (also a relic of some earlier version ?) Would volunteer to ta...

Smaller Triumph games, dumb question on

Salutations, gentlefolk !

Hath anyone ever tried playing Triumph with 40 or 36 points a side ? Your opinion on this variant ?

Re: Counsels of perfection ;-)

Excellent explanation, DK. I would have been perfectly happy with "Buck up, sissy pants." :) Y'know, Mr. Kontos, it ain't that I disagree with you. But we are Trying To Sell Stough To The Multitudes, and there's a lot of esoteric information that's folded into the rules and army lists - I...

Re: Counsels of perfection ;-)

Salutations, gentlefolk ! OK, in the 'October 2017 Rules release summary of changes', in the middle of 'Minor rule changes', you had two lines about revaluing of Warriors and "army lists on Meshwesh have been modified". Now it was the case that I was bringing an Early German army to ye ope...

Counsels of perfection ;-)

Salutations, gentlefolk ! Some minor suggestions that methinks you've thought of already... 1 - Please try to get new rules edition finished and uploaded in time for everyone to read at leisure, not 'on the ride to Lancaster'. Some confused people at Fall In there were. Meshwesh - 1 - Mayhaps to the...
