Re: Minwax Polyshades Dip Question

I just dip them. I paint figs on nails. When they are completely dry (at least 24 hours after last painted) I take them into the basement, turn the nail upside down and dunk the fig in the dip. Then I pull it out, let it drip back into the can for a few seconds, then shake the nail/fig violently int...

Re: “Or” in Army Lists

The Nubians can have 6-16 “Archers or Skirmishers”. Can you select a mix of these two types, or must it be all archers or all skirmishers? Mix. If it was all archers or all skirmishers it would say archers [all] or skirmishers [all] . See the second-last line of the Later Tang and Southern Five Dyn...

Re: Conan and the Hyborian Age

Any ideas on how you would represent the big guy himself? Maybe a Battle Card that lets him be a Skirmisher on one turn and an Elite Infantry the next? Nope. However he is represented, he is not 500 guys with bows or 500 to 1000 guys with training in fighting in close formation. He doesn't block re...

Re: Flexiblity of Basing Numbers?

These Vikings were based as old WRG irregular LHI and LMI. So I suppose the Bowmen are ok, but the rest are too deep. Do you think it's a wash if I'm just using them against each other? Am I right that depth only matters for how far you recoil? If so, in your experience, often does that matter? (As...

Re: BattleCard Questions

Wow! Battle cards are going to be much more than I expected. Sounds cool. Can't wait to see the product of all your work! Thanks. One warning, though -- Battle Cards are based on history (as best we understand it) -- so some armies have more of them; some have fewer. There are point costs for battl...

Re: BattleCard Questions

So no inside info on the Vikings? Didn't see your note. The Raiders period (790-849 AD) doesn't have much -- Pack Trains and Herds is their only battle card. The formed army period (850-1280 AD) has more: Pack Trains and Herds Prepared Defenses (0-9 base widths modeled as palisades) Mobile Infantry...

Re: Flexiblity of Basing Numbers?

Specifically, my viking huscarls are 3 to a stand, but would be 4 as elite infantry. Likewise the bowmen. Are you talking about a viking army you have from a legacy game? The DBA/DBM/DBMM bowmen with 3 guys per base are "Irregular" bowmen. If you don't want to rebase, make a simple base extender to...

Re: WOTR Yorkist Army Question

Ok. Thanks. Will the battle cards be part of the list on meshwesh? Yes. The online database (meshwesh) will show you the army list (as now), and also show you the battle cards available for that army list. If you click on a battle card reference you will get a page with the text of the rules for th...

Re: Eureka's 15mm Sumerian Range

I believe these figures made several appearances at Historicon in the Great Battles series and in the Grand Triumph doubles. Yes, they did. When DS gets back from his Wisconsin sojourn he'll post some pictures of the Sumerians in Grand Triumph doubles whopping on the Scots Commons and Italian Condo...

Re: WOTR Yorkist Army Question

Where does the list say they can dismount? I'm glad, because I thought that a problem, but I don't see where the list states it. The data is there, but currently hidden from users. It's all part of the battle cards expansion. We have to make a last pass through the text and then rewrite the databas...
