Re: Close order foot on 20mm deep stands...

In this regard, I have a question. Is it possible to adapt the game somehow without mass re-basing of our ready-made close order infantry? If your army is based differently from Triumph, then no, there is no "natural" way to avoid rebasing and still use the game as written. It's easy enough to do w...

Re: Front side overlapping

Zendor, in your example, are you saying that only A, B, and X exist? Ignore the red blob?

If so, yes, X is the main combatant and B provides a -1 tactical modifier for an overlap.

Re: Front side overlapping

Yes, I can only count one penalty on one side. But in my case I overlap two sides - flank by C and front by B. D has four edges: front (fighting A), left side, right side, and rear. As MarkusB quotes (thanks, MarkusB), you cannot get more than one -1 per edge. The left edge of D could suffer a -1 f...

Re: Front side overlapping

I don't have my rules in front of me (I'm in Canada right now), but you can only count one penalty on one side. So if you have two things on the right side (as in your picture), that only gives a -1.

Re: At what moment is the command distance measured?

So a General more than 8Mu from an enemy, could move behind their own troops to the left and give a command, then move back right using a March move? Could, but that would be a waste. Use what command points you want to at the original location, move the general, then use what command points you wa...

Re: Scythed Chariots

Hi, Could anyone explain how the Scythed Chariot and Stampedes Battle Card works please as I'm not sure I understand correctly. It appears to me that no combat is fought by the chariots or stampedes themselves and that the only effect is on certain other combats for marked units? That's correct. Ma...

Re: 2 Questions re: Historical Accuracy Rivers & Deployment

I love the Grand Triumph games myself; they hit a very nice inflection point between a bigger game with more detail, but still with a reasonable time frame -- 4-6 hours as you report in DBM/MM was never to my taste. I'm going back to the Third World later this month (i.e., the USA, whose coronavirus...

Re: Post Mongol Russian

No news yet. It slipped off my list of things to research this summer -- sorry, but it's been a rough year as an educator. Ask me again in a month or two; right now I'm up in Canada visiting family and I don't have time or resources.

Museum has packs of kneeling (and laden) camels in their excellent new Z range figures. See https://www.museumminiatures.co.uk/camels-kneeling.html
Those are genius, Chris.

Re: Nordic Bronze Age Army List?

Might be fun, Chris. I'll look at your sources when I get a chance, when I get back from Canada in a few weeks. However, I'll point out that you're most likely really looking for a squad level game, not a game with a single stand representing 100 to 1000 people. Battles of one town of 100-200 adults...
