(53.1) (conforms means moves to make legal geometric combat) ... except if the hi...

Re: Unit Types in Fantasy Triumph

One thing you could consider along these lines is making these powerful individual heros more like markers that can attach to units to enhance them. Warmaster did something.like that and it worked really well. It would be similar to how the general stand gives a unit a +1 to combat, except the hero...

Re: Hoplites Deep Formation and Epilektoi

The wording of the card is: "Stands marked with this ability in the army lists gain the Rear Support ability per rule 66, as if those stands (only – including other stands of that type not so noted in the army lists) were listed in 66.3. All other parts of rule 66 are still valid." The part in pare...

Re: Hoplites Deep Formation and Epilektoi

In the later Hoplites Athens list, the Epilektoi (Elite Foot) are marked with Hoplites Deep Formation but only one is allowed. Is the intent that any troops I'm the army marked the same way (i.e. the Heavy Foot Hoplites) can support or be supported? And re-reading it again. I'm still not sure what ...

Re: Komnenan reformed list question

But no problem just a question . Sorry to bother you. :D No bother at all -- didn't mean to give that impression. I tend to write terse, direct responses because I focus on transmitting information, not worrying about presentation. It's always reasonable to ask what the criteria are for inclusion o...

Re: Sub-commanders in normal 48pt Triumph

I've been playing a lot of Alexander the Great vs. battles (Greeks, Thrace, Persians) and one thing that is very difficult to represent is the way that Alexander typically led from the right wing. He would entrust the left wing to his general Parmenion. If played that way, the left flank quickly ge...

Re: Take the Chevy to the levy but the LEVY RUN DRY!

Depends upon the foe, and that's true for almost all troop types. A major part of the strategy with Triumph is to decide where you are going to allocate your command points as the game evolves. Nobody ever has enough. This is often described as choosing where on the battlefield you are going to win,...
