Re: Chariots beating Skirmishers, not by double

Did we play it correctly? If so, I would be interested to know why Skirmishers are more resistant to Chariots in open terrain than nearly all infantry types, including such closely related troop types such as Rabble, Bow Levy and Archers. Rod gives a good summary, but I wanted to point out one othe...

Thanks, Spencer. Please show up with the armies organized into 48 points legal (don't give the users any choices) and please show up in advance 30 minutes or so; otherwise the process of matching players to loaners is tortuous and delays the start badly.

Re: Sneak Preview of Minas Tirith

Some new pics today. Domes and some slanted roofs are painted; painting has started for some of the gardens. IMG_0502.JPG IMG_0501.JPG IMG_0499.JPG Main work remaining is the Tower of Ecthelion and Fountain Court, the main gates, and the gardens and parks inside the city. Most of that should be fini...

Re: Sneak Preview of Minas Tirith

Laminated some 2x4s last night; cut them square on the tablesaw this morning and tapered the resulting tower, then octagonalized the top part with a wood chisel. Sliced a finger cutting apart a ping-pong ball for the dome on the top, though.

Re: Sneak Preview of Minas Tirith

The Tower of Ecthelion isn't the final version -- that's just representative of approximate size and position. Since I have to be able to transport the whole thing to Historicon, the whole top (Fountain Court, Tower of Ecthelion, whatever) has to be removable. It will be constructed later and attach...

Re: Sneak Preview of Minas Tirith

Workshop (my garage) not air conditioned. Ugly. Just finished creating four tools out of spare brass stock for embossing buildings with windows and arches. I had been using a nail for arches (press the head in upside down to emboss a circle, then cut three lines below and use a flat-head screwdriver...

Re: mounted samurai bowmen

I also think that the cavalry portion of the Sengoku Samurai list should be changed. From https://www.samurai-archives.com/military.html [quote removed for brevity] The question would then be what should they be list as? Bad Horse might be a better choice. That's a very interesting thought. And the...

Re: Libyans - Possible Battle Card

Putting a call out to the cognoscenti -- what OTHER armies have documented battles where they tried an attack at dawn (or just after, or just before)? If we make this a battle card, we'd like to see what other armies get the possibility to purchase this battle card.
