Re: Triumph! @ Huzzah Hobbies June 13th

Jan and I are planning to duke it out again next Thursday. The more the merrier! I'd love to join you, but I'm going to be in London instead. Viewing Assyrian wall carvings in the British Museum, perhaps, or at the London Museum examining the Roman-era dancer's leather G-string newly found in the T...

Re: MFP Nomad generals

The Nomadic Raider MFP Meso-American list has the general specified as "If Present: Light Foot, Otherwise: Rabble". Neither Light Foot nor Rabble are (otherwise) compulsory, so does this mean one has to take at least one of the types anyway, or can one have a Skirmisher general in an all-Skirmisher...

New Archaeological Find: Ancient British shield, 300BC ish

Hi all, Some really interesting stuff here -- a dig at the University of Leicester has discovered and reconstructed a shield from between 395 BC and 255 BC. The only one of its kind ever found in Europe. https://ulasnews.com/2019/05/23/unique-iron-age-shield-found-by-leicester-archaeologists/?fbclid...

Re: 36.1 What can be a group

Huh. All righty, then. If the only way to transfer electricity from one stand to another was if they were in edge and corner contact and same facing, then it the easy way to determine a group would be to say if you shocked one stand, who would feel it? If every stand would feel the shock (passing t...

Re: 36.1 What can be a group

Nope, that's a group. The gap only prevents groupage if there is no pathway without a gap that creates groupage. In this case, if C or D did not exist, then E would not be part of the group because of the gap between it and B. To put it another way, group is a transitive relation. If A and B are a g...

Re: 80. Pass Through

One thing we agreed on when playing that, on re-reading the rule, I think we got wrong. In looking at the illustration to 80.2, I note that A, which is passing through the stand to its rear, is shallower than the stand it's passing through. From that I surmise that the provision 80.1.b that there m...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Speaking of Khitan Knights, the Jurchen Jin Rebellion list have Khitan heavy horse as Knights or Elite Cav. Seeing they don't get a Knights option in their own list, I've got a hard time seeing why they should here. Thanks, I'll fix. In the Later Jurchen Jin list, you've got "Superior Jurchen Horse...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

I had a look at the lists as they are now and I'm afraid the confusion has spread rather than be reduced. Unless I'm mistaken, there are now three sublists for which the composition is misattributed: This was fixed late in 2018; we haven't uploaded those changes yet. We've been focused on a variety...

Bagaudae: Late Roman Peasant Revolts

Hi all, While trying to avoid grading final exams I came upon a discussion of peasant revolts in the Western Roman Empire, which were broad enough and large enough to fight military battles against W.Roman armies; at one point even Aetius got together an army to fight them. See the article in Wikipe...

Re: BuA rules

Sorry, that my message was so abrupt. English id not my first language and I was writing from the subway (like now xD). I was refering to the BuA as a terrain. So It's just difficult terrain? Thanks!
