Re: Any Philadelphia Players?

Salutations !

Have moved out of the Philadelphia area, but am painting up armies for some gaming friends in Manayunk and Malvern who are interested in getting into ancient miniatures. Will try to get them in touch with you.

Army lists PDFs

Salutations, gentlefolk, I have an ASUS Zenfone, using the browser on Android 6. Have noted that when I use it to access an army list on Meshwesh, click 'the menu/page/save as PDF', I get a file Of about 20-40 Kb, listing all optional and allied troops, etc. Useful way to make 'reference sheets' to ...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Salutations !

Noted that the 'Roman Armenian' (245-428 AD) list has generals as 'Cataphracts or Elite Cavalry'. There do not, however, appear to be any Elite Cavalry included in the army list. Mayhaps the first component should say 'Cataphracts or Elite Cavalry, 1-3' ?

Yours, John Desmond

Combat rules in 'outline' form

Salutations, gentlefolk ! I have, sometimes, found it hard to comprehend complex sentences snaking through long paragraphs (whether my failing eyesight, or approaching senility, is the cause, is debatable). So have taken the Triumph combat rules - sections 6, 7, & 8 - whacked up the sentences into l...

Re: Rule 67.2 a

Salutations, again ! You're right, I'm wrong, I need another cuppa. I missed that 67.2 is about the overlapping unit's contact with the friendly attacking stand - was thinking t'was on the overlapping unit's contact with enemy stand, which is left-corner-to-left-corner, or right-to-right-corner. Sor...

Rule 67.2 a

Salutations !

In rule 67. "Overlap and other threats", defining "Corner contact", 67.2 a says
"The contact must be left front corner-to-right front corner or vice versa."

Are you quite sure about that ?

Thanks for your patience with my nitpicking.

Was away from the hobby for a few years, admit that I am mistaken about this, here.

Re: Group to column reverse?

Salutations !

In the _De Bellis Antiquitatis_ community, this is known as "The Khazar Mounted Drill Team".

IMHO, the gentlemen responsible for _Triumph_ wanted to Specifically Leave It Out
