Re: Probably incorrect references in Meshwesh battle cards

I found this text In the Meshwesh battle card "Pack Train and Herds": In addition, the army’s camp is deployed when its last troops are deployed (27.2.d or 27.2.e, depending upon whether the player is the disadvantaged player or not), not at the usual time (27.2.a or 27.2.b). In the Triumph! 1.1 ru...

Re: Front contact priority

I agree. But what about my example? Isn't that a badly contra-historical result, that troops attacking front-and-flank have worse result, than attacking flank only? :) Not as much as you think. In your mind you want the Knights to be the main combatant. So why are you throwing Bow Levy into the fro...

Re: Front contact priority

In the game, a flank or rear attack is a -1 to the defender, which is the same penalty as an overlap. It would seem to me that being attacked in the flank or rear would be a bit more severe than a frontal overlap situation. Did the design team ever consider a -2 modifier for being attacked in the f...

Re: Front contact priority

Hello! Could you explain, why a stand, that is attacked from both front and flank, must fight with front stand? I find it illogical. For example, the Bow Levy attack Elite Foot from the front and Knights from flank. In my opinion, Bow Levy just irritate Elite Foot, while Knights strike the main blo...

  • WWg are 3 pts now, not 4.
I note that the Meshwesh troop type page still has them as 4 pts.
Database update error; fix is in process.

Re: Post Mongol Russian

Thank you, Delphin. That's exactly the sort of thing we need. I'll look at it again in a week or so when I've finished grading for the semester. I've read through it once, and the material seems to encapsulate two of the main issues that create problems for those making army lists; one positive and ...

Re: Conquistadors army?

Are you planning to add a conquistadors army list? Probably not. There are several reasons why those interactions don't fit the model for Triumph. The time period is too late. Those lists would be appropriate for inclusion in Renaissance Triumph, if and when we ever create such a thing (it isn't on...

Re: Post Mongol Russian

In the Post-Mongol Russian army list, the main part of army was represented by 1-2 Elite Cavalry and 4-8 Horse Bow. It's ok forthe 15th century but really strange for the 14th and especially 13th century. Mass transition from spear to bow and saber is a part of orientalization, which occurred in th...

Re: 64.3 Front contact priority

Sure. And change the results if the flanked stand had to fall back, flee, or similar.
