Nice!

Especially the multipurpose use of a fingerburning tool to make marks on wood! That's using your noggin!

Re: Ekdromoi

Well, having thinked about it a bit more and after reading your comments, I'm now convinced my proposal doesn't make much sense :D And yes, the interaction between Heavy foot and Skirmishers/Rabble is perfectly fine as it is - mine was just an attempt to bring a tad more variety in quasi-monotype h...

Re: Ekdromoi

Hey Markus, Interesting idea. 3mu is something like 200 yards, which I'd suggest is way too far -- as Xenophon describes it, the Ekdromoi don't run out anywhere near that far. The tactic is used when naked irritating foot (meaning Skirmishers and Rabble in Triumph) get irritating. Skirmishers don't ...

Re: 1278 battle on the Marchfeld

The rules that apply are 64.4 and 65.3: 65.3 says "you gotta fight to your front if you've got an enemy th...

I also use inkscape - a bit difficult to learn at first but super powerful once you understand it - I'm about half way there :) Kevin We need to talk, Kevin -- I've used inkscape to play Triumph games online (with honor-system dice rolling using random.org). My main opponent (Rod) doesn't like inks...

Re: Macedonian Phalanx as Heavy Foot

Interesting thoughts. To continue the discussion, I'm not sure your argument works after the death of Alexander. You say (about the Macedonian phalanx): "They never really fought against heavy cavalry that I can tell." Except that all the battles of the Diadachoii (Alexander's successors) for the ne...

Re: 53.2 Conforming

Hi, while I think I pretty much understand the rules on conforming, I'm still a bit unsure just what rule 53.2 is talking about could some please help here :?: cheers Wayne If a group hits a single stand, it conforms. (53.1) (conforms means moves to make legal geometric combat) ... except if the hi...
